Your Fast Track to Growth

Organic search is becoming more challenging as search engines give more prominence to paid search. For that reason, paid search needs to be part of your digital marketing plan.

Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising has that moniker because your gastroenterology practice only pays when a user clicks on your ad and is directed to your website. With PPC ads, you truly get exactly what you pay for.

Successful Strategy Components

Boost Your Brand

Pay-Per-Click ads not only increase your direct conversions from website visitors, but they also get your brand name out there more often. Each time a customer views your ad in the Google search results, it is called an impression. The more impressions you have on a potential patient, the greater trust and credibility you appear to have in their eyes. 

Whether or not the potential visitor clicks on your website link on the first appearance, steady exposure increases the likelihood that clients will visit your site.

Slice of Advice

You must have robust content and a beautiful site to generate the best ROI from your PPC budget.

There are different SEM ad types, and they require different strategies to optimize your ads to generate leads. That’s why you need a gastroenterology practice marketing firm to manage your SEM. The two most common search engine advertisements for gastroenterology practices are text ads (the paid returns atop the search engine results page) and display ads (ads on the right side or across the entire top of regular webpages). Unlike text ads atop search engine results pages, display ads show up on pages of websites that you set as parameters. For instance, a display PPC ad for your practice could show up on a page where someone in your local area is researching Crohn’s Disease.
