Weight Loss Solutions Australia Achieved 55% Higher Conversions In Less Than 10 Months


WLSA predominantly sell surgical weight-loss services such as Gastric Balloon, Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty, Gastric Banding and Gastric Sleeve. As these services may be invasive and non-invasive operations, with short-term and long-term consequences (and commitment!), it takes a lot of physical and mental preparation to say yes to such big surgeries, which makes the sales cycle quite long! To combat any nerves that come with committing to such weight loss solutions, WLSA spend a lot of time educating their clients about the offered procedures to ensure they fully understand their services and regard them as high quality.

WebSavvy’s support has been amazing – and these numbers are a testament to the great partnership.

Our Work

Campaign Goals:

WLSA were struggling to get leads and consultations for their NSW and QLD clinics within their target range, determining our goals:

  • Increasing spend on Google Ads to capture a larger market share in their industry and specific geographic locations.
  • Increase Lead Conversion Volume by 10% & Conversion Rates by 5% for form submission enquiries & calls.
  • Ideally – reduce Cost Per Acquisition (CPA), whilst remaining in the profitable CPA range.

Our Action:

After meeting with the CEO and presenting our recommendations, we began running the agreed experiments in March 2018. Firstly, we experimented with Target CPA smart bidding strategies to beat our original Manual CPC bid strategies. The Smart Bidding strategies grew Impressions and Clicks, and saved time to focus on strategy and creatives.

Once a Target CPA became the winning strategy, we tested different CPA targets to ensure we were able to maximise revenue. We continued tests until we had enough data as proof of the best strategy’s success, then began working towards moving all our campaigns to automation strategies.

The Results:

Since transitioning all campaigns to Smart Bidding strategies, we were able to spend more on Google Ads within the profitable range of cost per lead. WLSA experienced continuous and huge growth in revenue.

  • Increased Gastric banding campaign: Conversions by 55%, Conversion Rates by 32%, Google Ads Spend by 31%, Impressions by 11% and Clicks by 17%
