The Problem.

Parkinson’s UK were eager to increase brand awareness after finding that they were under utilising their Google Ad Grants monthly spend. This meant their message was failing to reach a wider audience. Parkinson’s UK charged us with the mission of increasing relevant traffic to their website and ultimately increasing awareness of their cause.

The Solution.

We identified substantial areas of content that weren’t being utilised. This represented a significant opportunity. Further, ad groups were too broad with overly general keywords. By focusing ad groups with a limited list of tightly targeted keywords we were able to increase relevance. We coupled this with A/B testing, a process that enabled us to test the effectiveness of multiple adverts at the same time and see which were generating the highest conversions to maximise standout and advert performance.

Parkinson’s UK saw an immediate and significant impact on their results. These included a 359% increase in clicks – a massive jump from 5,469 to 25,124 in just one quarter. The click-through rate (CTR) also increased significantly, from 2.24% to 7.07% over the same period.
