A bariatric surgery center needed help boosting the number of patients in their surgery pipeline, so they asked if we could help them. We said “yes”.

A bariatric surgery center with multiple locations in one state came to us in March of 2020. They wanted to increase the number of bariatric patients quickly with paid ads and compare our results to their current marketing agency.

With machine learning, results improve over time so next month the cost per acquisition will be less.  With a lower cost per acquisition, our ad budget goes farther so we can achieve more leads for the same ad spend.  We also update or change ads that did not perform as well as the top ads.  The updates include changes in the text, Call To Action and image in Facebook Ads
