Paid Search (PPC) and Social Media Advertising

Kaitlin King-Lamas
Kaitlin King-Lamas
Senior Manager of Marketing Operations

Where organic search is the long game, paid search is a lever we can pull when we need faster results. By utilizing paid advertising channels right away, we begin to establish a footing among competitors and start to generate leads independent of organic search. When we employ paid advertising in Google and Bing (Pay-Per-Click, or PPC) for the doctors and medical spa clients we serve, we target people much further down the sales funnel. These are consumers who have moved beyond searching for information about specific products or services, and are much closer to making a purchasing decision.

Bing Ads Accredited Professional

Partner With the Best & Brightest

Based on expertise, performance, and volume of paid advertising, we have earned distinctions as a Google Premier Partner and a Bing Ads Accredited Professional.

We also support social media channels which have evolved into “pay to play” networks. When social media first became popular, businesses knew they had to have profiles but they didn’t know exactly how to leverage them. It was sort of like free advertising as it was a platform to share whatever you wanted with people who liked your business. As it matured and captured more than a billion users across multiple platforms, developing advertising channels within these networks became a very obvious opportunity. Now it’s likely businesses won’t see reasonable ROI without investing some budget into these channels.

So, what does that mean for your business?

Understanding PPC

Pay-Per-Click or PPC. It’s the common terminology for search advertising, and means as an advertiser you are paying for every click you receive. The rabbit hole is deep in the PPC world, and while our clients don’t need to know the details about the numerous variables like negative keywords, quality scores, and ad extensions, it’s important that our team understands all of this to utilize our clients’ budgets most effectively.

PPC is widely misunderstood. It’s not a “set it and forget it” service. You can’t just turn it on and turn it off. It tends to see results much more quickly than other services, but to maximize your investment it must be constantly managed. Our teams know this, and that’s why we have eyes on our clients’ campaigns at all times. Our teams are behind the scenes adjusting keywords, managing bids, testing landing pages, editing copy, reviewing demographics of regional targets, and even adjusting the days and times our clients’ ads are displayed.

Because PPC can be so finely tuned, we believe it has a place in every client’s marketing strategy.

We do uncommonly good work based on customized strategy, but that’s just the beginning.

The Etna Approach

Why Should I Advertise on Social Media?

As we said, social media has become a “pay to play” platform. Simply having a profile and posting updates to your fans won’t maximize the potential. Engagement is still a key part of social media, and as a business you must be active and interact with your fans. However, you must understand your reach, and with nearly 2 billion users on Facebook, how can your one post remain relevant and alive to ensure people actually see you? That’s where advertising comes into the picture.

By advertising on social media, you can target your audience to the smallest details because Facebook, for example, is a platform built upon understanding people’s likes and behaviors. You can show your ads to people who have chosen to follow you and to those who don’t even know you exist, but may be looking for your products or services. The reasonable cost for advertising on these platforms also makes them very appealing.

One more exciting aspect of advertising on social media channels in the healthcare industry is that retargeting is an avenue open to you, unlike on Google. This allows us to specifically show your ads to people who have previously clicked one of your ads or visited your website.

How Paid Advertising Is Different at Etna

At Etna, we don’t just check the box and tell you we’re doing your marketing—we set goals with you, create a marketing strategy that utilizes the tools you need, and set performance targets for ourselves, monitoring our results and adjusting course if necessary. That means when it comes to paid advertising, we have to be aware of performance at all times. We have to know when to scale up, scale back, or add variants at our disposal.

We have three different levels of paid advertising service based on your specific needs. Some clients just need light support with singular channel advertising, while others need all four channels fully engaged with unique landing pages built specifically to speak to the ad content. Our strategists and marketing teams will assess your needs and create a strategy and marketing plan designed specifically to meet your goals.

This team is like family to me! 3 years ago I was looking for a knowledgeable and foreword thinking marketing group and a very successful surgeon recommended ETNA for me! Best decision EVER! The kickoff started with the etna team taking a HUGE amount of tile interviewing ME! It wasn’t sales....it was the etna team determining what my needs would be and how they might fit in. Their programming is awesome! We have done a complete overhaul of our site since then (which I highly recommend) that has helped out performance. My SEO and leads have skyrocketed for the first time in over 15 years of working with website and marketing teams. They respect your budget and maximize your return on investment with very careful analytics! I could not give any higher recommendations! I am proud to be an ETNAN! Feel free to reach out to me if you’d like a personal recommendation. I always have energy to share for this awesome group of people.

Love the Etna Team! I enjoy working with Shannon and Kristin on the website! Always quick responding, encouraging and engaging! They really spell things out for me and answer all of my questions, as it is very tricky when managing a website! There are so many things that aren't seen on the front side and it is nice to know that the ETNA team is always on top of optimization and encouraging best SEO practices and managing and watching all of the things we can't see. I was so thrilled to attend the ASAPS Aesthetic Meeting this year in NYC and was able to take Ryan's class about "Cultivating Authority Online: Where Reputation and Rankings Intersect". It was truly a joy to pick his brain and learn some new information and solidify that ETNA is a great team to work with and has the right stuff to optimize and skyrocket your website to the next level! Thanks Etna TEAM!

I have been fortunate to sit in on Ryan Miller's presentations at the Vegas Cosmetic Surgery Meetings these past two years and can't say enough about how engaging a Speaker he is and how generous with his IP. His impressive knowledge of the Plastic Surgery space from a business and marketing perspective is phenomenal. Given I am in Australia its hard to feel connected but the regular news blasts are incredibly helpful. I look forward to having the opportunity to hear from Ryan at future events.

I am the Operations Manager for a relatively new plastic surgery practice in Kalispell, MT.

Not only was I fortunate enough to have had that opportunity; our practice has worked with Etna over the past year creating a beautiful website!! They are an awesome company that obviously has had outstanding leadership and direction. I look forward to any future events that I might be able to learn more from Ryan and his team!

Ryan is great! I am a Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon. I have heard him speak at many meetings around the United States, most recently this weekend in Las Vegas. I approached him at the last meeting to inquire about working with his company, and he told me he limits his clients to a small number per city, and already had a Beverly Hills client. This remark told me that this company values each of their clients and isn't about numbers, rather quality. Sadly, it made me want to work with his company even more, as this was a testament to what the company stands for.

We used etna interactive for a few years for our cosmetic surgery practice. Initially our experience was positive, with etna building a nice website (although in an arcane language called cold fusion that really limits who else in the future can work on the site). Subsequently, we had four different account managers in a short period of time with our account always getting a newbie manager. Meanwhile the charges became astronomical and billed at a minimum of 15 minutes in addition to very high monthly fees covering just reporting functions and not actual website enhancements. A colleague got a quote from etna about two years ago for $80,000 for a new practice website for a new grad. That really seemed exorbitant. They may be a good company for industry but I wouldn't recommend them for single physician cosmetic practices who are trying to maximize their marketing dollar

Ryan Miller and his team at Etna Interactive are simply the best at what they do. I have worked with Etna for the last 5 years. Picking them has been one of the best decisions I have ever made for my practice. First we redeveloped my main web site, then we developed a liposuction site, a breast mini-site, and a blog! They have met all deadlines and exceeded expectations. Results are fabulous. My websites rank higher than local competitors and my patients love my sites. Cheaper vendors will cost you much more in the long run not only in terms of lost clients but also in terms of headache and aggravation. My account manager is always reachable (as is Ryan who responds to email very quickly even on weekends!) I am in the business of marketing a quality product, and Etna Interactive has the capability, knowledge, and experience to do this in an artistic way!

I am a plastic surgeon and have employed Etna Interactive to build and coordinate all of my web efforts for over five years. They dominate the arena of plastic surgery web site building and marketing. The CEO, Ryan Miller, is the absolute leader in his ultra-specialized field and has been recognized as such by being invited to lecture at national meetings. He and his staff are intelligent, responsive, professional, courteous, ethical, well-researched and always have thoughtful reasoning backed by data to support their recommendations. Additionally, they provide all of their clients with a wealth of tracking evidence to prove their results and back their recommendations. For several years now, I have trusted Etna to make and negotiate all decisions on my behalf related to the multi-armed web marketing attack. They have built three web sites for me and marketed all of them to the top of search engine rankings, and this is just the beginning, They develop and employ web marketing techniques that I would not even know about unless it were for their vigilance in understanding the intricacies of the web world. Bottom line, signing up and spending money with Etna Interactive is a no-brainer as their service will allow a good surgeon to dominate over his or her regional competition. Anyone who has the opportunity to hire Etna should do it before someone else in the region does first.

I have worked with Etna since starting my plastic surgery practice in 2005. They have consistently yielded excellent results, and allowed me to reach a huge number of new patients (including many out-of-state and out-of-country patients).

To Whom It may Concern: I have worked with Ryan Miller for years and years...and to this day, he never ceases to amaze me. In the business world, I feel it is relatively easy for anyone to present an occasional impressive result, but, to do so consistently, as Etna does, is admirable and passionate. THAT is how I would describe Etna's efforts-- passionate. Best of all (for me personally) is that I have a real love for creative design-- and yet have no clue how that gets interpreted into 'html' IT/lingo...yet-- Etna consistently interprets my ideas and design concepts to a "T"..as if they were looking into my mind. That makes me a very happy client! Kudos to Scott Tobin -- who has put up with my last-minute time-frames, and exhibits endless patience with my immediate needs. He is a consummate professional! To those considering Etna: You will be thrilled ...not only from the standpoint of web design -- but also with respect to their loyal customer service, along with impeccable web optimization and success. If I brag much further...you'll think I'm related..so - I'll end with: Pricey but worth it. A+ Charlie Sheridan

August 11, 2008 Etna Interactive Att: Nancy Bruce Dear Nancy, It is with pleasure that we forward these comments and observations of Etna??s services to us over the last four years. Prior to our relationship with Etna, we had worked with three other web service companies with very marginal results. Although they indicated they were ??medical? experts, the results were are less than what we have enjoyed with Etna Interactive. Since we receive the majority of our patient leads through the Internet, it has been imperative that our web development and support be top notch. Etna has succeeded in providing not only a graphically appealing web site but also great consulting services on everything from page content, to color selection and patient contact protocols via email blasts, etc. The project management skills from Etna have enabled us to manage multiple marketing campaigns in addition to the many periodic changes required in order to keep the sites current. Jobs have been completed within the stated target dates. Phone call or email requests for support are answered same day. We strongly recommend the services of Etna Interactive. Prospect clients of Etna can contact me for any clarification of the above. Sincerely, Jeff Lewis Business Manager 619-437-1388
