Outcomes

Our first step was to assess their current campaign performance and conduct extensive research on Smile Doctor’s digital competitors. With this information, we then established performance baselines for our campaigns. We used enhanced bids to improve efforts across campaigns and gain better algorithmic insight into which audiences would work best.

Campaign-level consolidations helped to improve algorithmic performance significantly without sacrificing relevancy. For PPC, grouping by themes and intent has been pushed to the ad group level to allow the algorithm to find the most cost-effective conversion while still targeting ads based on location (very important for Smile Doctors, which has many locations across the United States).

55.9% increase in conversions YoY. More recently, the surgery center’s site has seen a 40% increase in clicks from Google, as well as a 211% increase in organic referral visits—both month over month.

Locally, Dr. Keusch is now tapping into the local plastic surgery market, in some cases displacing competitors on search engine results pages (SERPs). The surgery center’s Google My Business listing, for example, has seen a 9.5% increase in site visits, as well as a 68% increase in directions requests.
