Many of our previous clients have let us know that they did not have much success with Google Ads until they chose us to manage their PPC campaigns. It’s easy to spend thousands of dollars on Google Ads and not see a return.
However, when done effectively, PPC can be the largest driver of consultations across your marketing campaign. It starts with understanding that advertising on Google enables you to meet consumers that already actively searching for a treatment or have a current condition they’d like to address.
There are multiple categories of keywords that are PPC efforts can target. You have to segment keywords, combine them with incentives and offers as well as providing an amazing landing page experience to compel the visitor to take the next step.
Concern Based Keywords
These keywords are based on the type of concern the consumer wants to address. They are specific keywords your potential patients will search for such as “double chin removal”, “aging spots”, “droopy eyelids”.
Such keywords are further up in the funnel and are generally high volume keywords. Although they signal intent, you have to optimize and bid on these carefully to not waste budget.
The competitors bidding against you also have a wide range of products, medical and aesthetic services, and providers which are all factors that can increase the cost of bids.
Brand Name Keywords
Brand name keywords are the simplest ones to manage and easy to find. They include keywords such as BOTOX, CoolSculpting, Juvederm, Restylane and more. However, segmentation within these are also critical as they can be divided by intention. For instance, the keyword “Coolsculpting Before and After” will have a different value and intent than “Coolsculpting Near Me”. Brand keywords also include your brand name.
These keywords also are always more likely to convert if paired with a coupon offer as well a great landing page.’
Treatment Based Keywords
Closer to signaling intent, treatment based keywords show that the consumer is just about ready to make a decision. Keywords such as “best filler for cheeks” “laser hair removal” and “lip injections” are great examples of these.
You’ll notice with these keywords that there is no loyalty to a brand and or facility. These are very high value keywords and you must make the most out of every visit you generate from showing ads in Google search results for these.
Comparative Based Keywords
We love these keywords as they signal a consumer that is deep into their research. This is a great reminder that most consumers do not know the difference of many of these products and procedures and are still investigating which one is right for them.
These keywords include those like “CoolSculpting vs Liposuction”, “Botox vs Juvederm”, “Restylane vs Versa” and “Microdermabrasion vs Microneedling”.
We frequently receive requests or questions as to whether or not you should bid on competitor brand names. We advise against this as it is not cost effective. For one, Google raises the cost per click for these types of keywords when you are not the brand owner. This makes bidding on these types of keywords not cost effective. While competitive keywords can garner you visits and possibly clients from someone searching for someone else’s brand, they come at a high cost. Time, resources, and focus are better spent elsewhere.
KEYPOINT : The fact that these keywords drive so much volume are point in proof that you need to be visible on Google Ads. With little to no allegiance, consumers tend to turn to Google to find information on new treatments and procedures. Though they actively search for your medical spa, cosmetic surgery practice or medical process they still turn to Google for their most sought after questions.
Running a PPC program for medical and aesthetic procedures takes a strong expertise of procedures as well as the path a consumer takes to ultimately deciding which practice to visit for their procedure. Sometimes, the consumer is just seeking validation of a decision already made and sometimes they are truly investigating which procedure and physician, facility and/or practice is best for them.
Understanding the consumer and that all might not be ready to book is paramount to running an effective program. Making the most of every visit and seeing value in upper funnel searches will have you running a strategic PPC program that delivers both short and long-term results.
