The Client

Who Are They?

Target Ovarian Cancer are the UK’s leading ovarian cancer charity. They work to improve early diagnosis, provide extensive support to those affected by the disease and fund life-saving ovarian cancer research.

The Aims

What Were Their Objectives?

Despite already having a presence within the charity’s sector, the team at Target Ovarian came to WRD with the goal of improving awareness around the disease and its symptoms, wishing to reach women of all ages across the UK. Other key objectives included accelerating conversion rates for donations, increasing charity event and newsletter sign-ups and improving the number of users reaching out with support requests.

What Did We Do?

Our PPC team engaged with the client to build an account structure that would gain the maximum number of impressions and visits to the TOC site from searchers wanting to find out more about the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer as well as the those wishing to join in activities to raise donations for the charity. The team also engaged with Google’s Grant Aid division to explore ways to utilise the allowance for charitable organisations.

We found that the most efficient way to draw maximum impact and visits from the $10,000 monthly allowance in the grant was to bid algorithmically for maximised conversions. This was then paired with ad copy carefully curated in order to reach and resonate with both people directly affected by the disease and their loved ones. As a result, we were able to dramatically increase the volume of visits (see below) and interaction to the charity online.

Thank you so much for all your support over the years – you have helped to raise awareness of ovarian cancer across the UK and we wouldn’t be where we are now without you

Target Ovarian

What Were The Results?

Using Target Ovarian’s Google grant, and our extensive experience within Google Ads and paid media, we were able to drive significant volumes of qualified traffic to the website. As the account developed, we achieved overall click through rates (CTR) of 11.47%, an average conversion rate of 54.09%, a 60% decrease in cost per conversion and were reaching the top of the page for 76% of our targeted searches.

Our Pro Bono support ran over a period of many years and has resulted in an incredibly solid campaign, alongside a significant increase in the charity’s UK profile.
