Brief

Go Rentals operate a fleet of over 1000 vehicles across both the North & South Islands of New Zealand, providing a huge range of brand new and late model rental cars, people carriers, vans and four wheel drives. Thanks to over 15 years experience, exceptional customer service and smart marketing, they remain one of New Zealand’s fastest growing car rental companies.

Go Rentals approached FIRST to help achieve increased visibility online with particular attention focused on non-branded search terms. Our goal was to ensure the Go Rentals website was found by qualified prospects (domestic and international) as they were looking to rent a vehicle in New Zealand.

By implementing best practice SEO, FIRST was able to establish the key terms to target and implement an effective strategy to increase the site traffic & revenue.


Results

As a result, Go Rentals were able to achieve the following:

  • 223% increase in total non-paid search traffic*
  • 296% increase in non-brand, non-paid search traffic*
  • 386% increase in revenue from non-brand, non-paid traffic*
  • * Comparison of Nov 09 -Jan 10 VS Nov 12 -Jan 13.
