The Play That Goes Right
LOVETheatre, an official ticket agent for London theatres, challenged Incubeta to supercharge revenue performance across October and November, whilst maintaining a specific target ROAS.
Incubeta discovered that the automated bidding algorithm they had chosen was heavily under indexing on productions that were performing well on LOVEtheatre’s website, thus imposing a much lower ceiling for their campaigns than was needed. Their solution was a custom-built data pipeline connecting LOVEtheatre’s Google Analytics data with their Search Ads 360 platform to give them more control over how the bid strategy automation was being deployed.
The result was a 48% MOM increase in revenue, demonstrating how even with the advancements in automation, the human touch is still critical to ensure advertising technology is being pointed in the right direction.
“This all centred around the human touch - the objectives and execution were clear with fantastic results, using an innovative and creative approach to change the way of working.”
