The Challenge

In 2017, the client approached Netrocket for the first time, seeking help with lead generation in Google Ads. While the brand already had some awareness, its website design needed to be updated, and mobile loading speeds needed to be faster. So, we started working on recommendations to improve the site design, which were implemented gradually.
As a result, many elements were reworked, including creating separate pages for areas where SMS service was in high demand. Moreover, we provided examples of calculating the effectiveness of SMS campaigns for each area.

In July 2021, our inbound B2B marketing agency assigned the following tasks to our PPC specialists:

– Creating and scaling ad campaigns
– Reducing the cost of conversion by 1.5-2 times
– Doubling the number of leads

The results of the 3-month advertising campaign are: leads increased by 104%, and cost per conversion decreased by 36%.

Before that, the agency had made some updates to the service, including adding answers to frequently asked questions, creating a Messanger mailing page, registering an extended price list, and configuring the site for mobile devices.

Execution / Optimization Process

After finishing all the work on the website, our B2B digital marketing team established our goals and started advertising in various directions as per the client’s requirements. We used all the relevant keywords to ensure successful scaling. However, during this process, we came across the following challenges:

  • High competition
  • High CPC in the niche
  • High website bounce rate.

We performed several tasks to improve the advertising account, which included:

  1. Rewriting the ads to make them more informative and focused on unique selling points.

Summary / Conclusion Takeaways

We have discovered that attracting traffic and leads at an acceptable cost is possible even when facing fierce competition. To accomplish this, it is essential to follow these steps:

  • Do not hesitate to increase budgets in campaigns.
  • Analyze reports carefully to draw the correct conclusions.
  • Utilize tools like Ahrefs to parse competitor keywords and expand your campaigns accordingly.
  • Conduct additional analysis of search and display campaigns over various timeframes to reallocate the budget and increase the number of conversions properly.
  • Choose the right strategy for each campaign level through experimentation to increase the number of orders from search campaigns and lower the CPA (cost per action).
  • Understand the importance of site usability and adaptability and be able to compose technical specifications for a designer or developer to create an effective sales tool.

We followed these recommendations by redesigning and improving website usability, updating keyword research, posting new ads, and launching Google Ads. As a result, we received 593 leads in less than three months.

In a competitive SMS service market, Netrocket’s strategic approach met and exceeded client expectations. The results showcase the effectiveness of a well-optimized Google Ads campaign combined with a focus on user experience, ultimately generating a remarkable 104% increase in leads and a 36% reduction in conversion costs.
