A skin specialist clinic

The Challenge

Partner with a recently launched, entrepreneurial skin clinic with no PPC strategy and limited marketing experience with the goal to rapidly expand its small customer base by partnering with a PPC agency in Melbourne.

Using the Google Search and Display Network, the objective of the campaign was to drive qualified leads at a target cost per acquisition in a highly competitive market.

We knew being a new business in a competitive landscape that we needed to build an ad campaign that was going to cut through the noise.

With The Derm Lab we were able to draw key insights from their customer persona and journey. This provided us with a clear and comprehensive understanding of their target audience, how they were segmented and their individual journey.

Our targeting focused on a ‘ready to buy’ audience with bespoke messaging across the customer segments on the Google AdWords network. With our through on-going campaign optimisation, competitor and market analysis, we continue to drive highly targeted leads, improve conversion rates, grow their new customer base and reduce their cost of acquisition.

The Results


What is PPC?

PPC stand for pay-per-click, a digital advertising model that means advertisers pay every time one of their ads is clicked. The most popular forms of PPC advertising is through the Google Ads and Microsoft Ads platform.

What PPC Advertising Channels are there?

There are a number of channels that use the PPC advertising model. Some of the most popular are:

  • Search Engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo)
  • Youtube
  • Google Display Network
  • Google Shopping
  • Social Ad Networks (FB, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest)

How much will I pay per click for my ads?

The first thing to understand is that the price of each click is decided by an auction. This means the amount you pay for a click depends how many other people are bidding for the same keyword at the same time as you and what you decide to set your bid at.

Google Ads allows you to set bid limits which mean you can choose how much you are willing to pay however this means you may miss out on potential clicks if you set your limit too low.

For example: If you set your bid to $2 per click and your competitors have a limit of $3 per click, you will likely receive less clicks during the more competitive auctions which may be the best time for your audience to convert.

This means it is really up to you how much you spend, but like any auction if you bid too low you may miss out. We use proven performance driven bidding strategies that focus on keywords that will get your business the best ROI.

Don’t people just ignore the ads?

No. Click through rates on PPC ads has never been higher, with Google making ad placement more dominant in search results and results show you can expect over 60% of people to click the ads when looking to buy online.

Can I advertise my Google My Business on Google Maps?

Yes. Local listing ads on google maps and location results are part of Google ads and work the same as any other PPC advertising. If you have a physical store location this is a great way to boost clicks, phone calls and store visits for people searching in your area.

Can I stop competitors clicking on my ads?

Yes. Google allows IP blocking of users that are repeatedly clicking your ads so they no longer show to them.

Where will my PPC Ads show?

Your ads can appear at the top and bottom of search engine result pages (SERP’s). Search ads show above organic results and are the first thing users see. Your ads position in is determined by a number of factors including the keyword bid, quality score of your ad, landing page and relevance (determined by Google).

Different strategies can help you focus on better positioning in the results but you may spend more or appear less. Our strategies work to achieve the position that has the highest click through rate from your budget.

What are the key metrics to measure the performance of a PPC campaign?

There are a number of key metrics that you can use to evaluate and measure performance of a PPC campaign. The easiest way is to leave this up to us as we have this all broken down in our easy to understand dashboards.

The key metrics to look out for to know if your campaign is performing well are:

CTR (Click through rate)
Understanding how often people click your ads when they appear will tell you what your missing out on and that you may want to test different ad copy or review the keywords you are bidding on.

Cost per click is important as large increases or decreases can mean you may need to refine your bidding strategy or review keywords that are blowing out your budget.

Cost per acquisition tracks the action on your website as conversions, it is crucial to understand how much your are spending per conversion (sales, leads, downloads) and if the ROI is positive.

ROAS (return on ad spend)
If you are an ecommerce website your main metric should be ROAS as this will tell you how much return you make for every $1 of ad spend.
