The Benefits of PPC Advertising for Doctors & Health Care Specialists
Visibility & Relevance
The two biggest benefits of PPC advertising are controlled visibility and relevance. Traditional advertising, which many doctors offices continue to rely on, interrupts people that may or may not be interested or in the market for your medical services.
Online marketing strategies like pay per click advertising only puts your message or ad in front of people actively interested in it or ready to make a buying decision. The odds are extremely high that someone searching for “pediatricians in Maryland” needs and is interested in finding a doctor!
Highly Controllable & Manageable ROI
Search engine marketing (SEM) is comprised of pay per click (PPC) advertising and search engine optimization (SEO). Many medical professionals make the mistake of favoring one strategy over the other. It is not uncommon for a business owner to hear from a friend that SEO is better than PPC and refrain from any further investigations of PPC advertising.
In reality, the medical professionals having the most success marketing their businesses online use both strategies. Pay per click advertising offers several advantages over SEO:
PPC advertising offers (near) immediate results; SEO can take weeks or months to start working
PPC advertising is nearly 100% controllable; no SEO company can promise you a certain ranking
The most accurate keyword tool (data that can be used for an SEO campaign) is a ‘live’ PPC campaign
The return on investment (ROI) from PPC advertising can be far more easily controlled than an SEO campaign

What Makes Us Different
Paid search platforms like Google AdWords are self-service platforms, which means you don’t need to hire a professional PPC company to set up and manage your campaign.

often do) waste thousands of dollars.

Our PPC specialists work with an account manager to learn every aspect of a client’s business model to better manage the AdWords account, including:
The client’s sales funnel

The visit-to-lead ratio
Profit margins for each product and service sold
We use our understanding of the client’s sales funnel to set bids appropriately and achieve the optimal cost per lead. Our desire to make your medical practice our own combined with years of expert PPC management experience equals a cost-effective form of advertising with tremendous reach and potential.
