Making brand visibility plain sailing

The brief

With a network of 25 routes and 50 freight and passenger ships, DFDS is one of the world’s leading ferry operators. After experiencing more than five years of declining organic search visibility, and with the likes of P&O and Brittany Ferries also competing for Northern Channel routes, DFDS wanted to improve their visibility across Europe and increase revenue from their organic channels.

The solution

  • We aligned all of their channels, including content, SEO, affiliates, PPC and PR to provide a clear link to the overall brand strategy and increase growth in bookings on individual routes.
  • We produced an annual campaign plan for social, content, search and performance marketing that worked right the way across the marketing funnel to increase passenger volumes on key routes around key seasonal events, such as Christmas Easter and New Year when families frequently travel to and from the UK.
  • We created a number of tactical content-led campaigns to inspire people to visit destinations, create engaging content and provide practical or fun information for passengers to use throughout their journey.

The results

In the first 12 months of activity:

  • Search traffic increased by 66%
  • Direct incremental revenue grew by more than £1 million.

Over five years:

  • Social channels have seen unprecedented growth with audiences up 46% year-on-year
  • Engagement across all channels increased by 86%
  • A consistent 15% increase in booking leads each year.

The impact:

“We chose twentysix for a number of reasons. They went to great lengths to dig beneath the surface of our business, to identify our target customers and develop robust growth strategies. We were also very impressed by the highly creative nature of the twentysix proposal, which was supported by solid commercial goals and objectives.”
