The challenge

Jet2 have several specific requirements for the paid search channel, and for Adthena’s technology. Firstly, they expect paid search to drive revenues, and to contribute to the company’s ambitious growth targets. Secondly, the competitive intelligence from search should help define and maximize the understanding of Jet2’s audiences and target markets. Finally, as the brand grows, brand protection is an increasing priority, monitoring infringements and protecting valuable search terms from competitors.

The solution

By using Athena’s Head to Head comparison features, Jet2 were able to identify keyword opportunities based on competitor coverage in strategic areas. Using this method as a means of keyword expansion, between April and July 2017, Jet2 went from being the 3rd biggest advertiser on a campaign for Lanzarote specific search terms, to 1st overall, boosting their click share by 51% in the process.

By using Adthena’s brand infringement and monitoring capabilities, Jet2 were also able to protect their growing brand from aggressive competitor bidding. As a result of this, they were able to increase their mobile brand click share by 4%.

“We use Adthena’s valuable competitive intelligence to drive revenues from paid search. The Head to Head comparison helps us identify competitor search terms, and fuels our own keyword expansion as we scale. We also rely on Adthena’s brand monitoring capabilities to protect our pure brand search share. As a brand in the travel space, having Adthena as a technology partner gives us confidence to pursue our ambitious growth targets.”
