HealthWare Systems – a software company that helps hospitals and patient care facilities improve their processes and thereby patient satisfaction – began working with PMG in 2012, with the goal of improving their organic search and creating better visibility. This client began revamping their pay-per-click advertising strategy in December of 2015. But after we joined forces on the PPC front, qualified traffic to the site nearly doubled.
PMG dove in with lofty and honest proposals that got the ball rolling on site visits. The thing is, HealthWare Systems’ sales process is a long one—sometimes it can take up to two years for buyers to go through the motions of passing sales and recommendations through regulations, as well as the politics of hospital staff. So it became extremely important to have a convincing and professional site while catering to as many prospect pain points as possible in order to drive more visitors through the conversion funnel.
The content that PMG had to develop is also very niche. And the challenge was pinpointing exactly who HealthWare Systems’ audience actually was, and who they were trying to sell to—which happened to be, in some cases, two different groups.
So how was PMG able to help HealthWare Systems achieve so many site visits and create content that resonated with their target audience? Based on data, we knew that once we could get a contact to fill out a bottom-of-the-funnel form, there was a 90% chance that the individual or company would end up closing as a customer. So we needed to drive visitors to these contact forms by increasing their confidence in HealthWare Systems. That meant we needed to do really, really good research.

So our PMG Team implemented a combination of marketing strategies. While the PPC work we were carrying out continued to drive a lot of traffic, we also increased traffic by:
The results of these efforts weren’t just "pretty good". Check out the steady incline of HealthWare Systems’ quality score (rated 1-10) on Google due to our team’s efforts:
After PMG and our client contact Patrick Murray successfully revamped HealthWare's marketing strategy, this higher quality score actually means they are now getting better views from better prospects through their pay-per-click advertising efforts.
With a little research and a lot of niche-focused promotion, PMG’s techniques helped HealthWare Systems start getting the views they needed in order to drive those long-term sales gains and get their visitors to a contact form. Go team, and congrats to HealthWare Systems!
