Avery Office Supplies Protects Their Brand and Lowers Campaign Costs by 51%

Despite their best efforts, one particular competitor kept violating Avery’s trademark policies.  No matter how many times violations were submitted to the engines, the competitor would appear with new ad copy that featured “Avery” prominently in their headlines.

Armed with a litany of reports from the Search Monitor, Avery issued a Cease and Desist Letter, with which they immediately complied. Their ads have not been in violation of Avery’s trademark since.

Read the full case study to see the impacts on Avery’s bottom line.

  • Strict FTC regulations about what they can promise and what they must reveal in their ad copy

Affiliate Compliance and Competitive Intelligence for The Telecom Industry

Our client’s main challenge was affiliate compliance on a specific set of keywords: their top performers. In addition to affiliate compliance, our client needed insight into trademark compliance along with help streamlining the manual submission process they used for each engine to have the ads removed. Lastly, our client wanted to gain insight into their competitive space. Specifically, they wanted to know where their competition appeared on their terms and what types of messaging they were using.
