Designed in Canada exclusively for automobile dealers, TRADER Corp. said its new product, TRFFK, aims to provide intelligent, data-led solutions to convert in-market car shoppers into real-time customers.
Called a “first-to-market, all-in-one digital” advertising solution, TRFFK provides digital marketing strategy and execution across paid search, display, social media and audience retargeting – all powered by exclusive consumer shopping data and consumer behaviour insights from autoTRADER.ca.
The company started its rollout in late November in Quebec and officials said it would subsequently be rolling out in other markets,.
According to TRADER, the offering uses proprietary autoTRADER.ca data of in-market car shoppers to power local, digital advertising campaigns and convert online traffic into real-time customers.

TRFFK offers dealers a one-stop, data-led, full-service solution for all areas of the digital advertising process,” the company said in a release.

“We have the largest car shopping audience in Canada on autoTRADER.ca, which gives us exclusive access to that qualified in-market consumer data to target the right shopper with the right car, at the right place and time, to drive high performance for our dealer partners. TRFFK provides a unique opportunity to serve our dealers by offering the most intelligent and targeted advertising to the highest quality traffic across any dealer ad platform.”
