Generating Targeted Leads with PPC
Pay Per Click Advertising Program
Terryberry specializes in employee recognition programs with high-quality, custom employee appreciation products, awards and retirement gifts for companies. Their programs & products provide creative ways to reward achievements and loyalty, recognize years of service and motivate employees. Terryberry partnered with TopSpot for both Paid Search and SEO. The goal of their PPC Program was to generate new business leads for Terryberry while reducing spend.
Terryberry partnered with TopSpot with the goal of decreasing their overall PPC spend while increasing their PPC driven form submissions via the Contact Us, Quick Contact, Demo Request, Request Awards and Product Information Forms.
Terryberry's Customer Relationship Team felt that the company's high consideration product was not being conveyed effectively by the orphan landing pages previously used for their PPC program. Instead, they recommended directing their ads to internal pages that provided more information.
Within the first 4 months, Terryberry saw a 195.00% increase in the number of Contact Us, Quick Contact, Demo Request, Request Awards and Product Information Form Submissions driven by their PPC Program while also producing a 16% reduction in Google & Bing Ads spend.

In-Depth Analytics Installation
Prior to launching Terryberry's PPC Program, TopSpot's Analytics Implementation Engineers spent a total of 27 hours on the initial analytics audit and installation.
Google Analytics, Call Tracking & LOOP Analytics, TopSpot's proprietary form analytics platform, were all installed to assist the team in monitoring and refining Terryberry's program on an ongoing basis.
Our in-depth analytics installation gave the Terryberry team a better understanding of how users were interacting with their website and the online & offline lead quality being generated. This helped both Terryberry and TopSpot create a clear path to a successful long-term strategy that matched their business strategy.
Aligning User Intent & PPC Strategies
Terryberry’s product is a high consideration purchase that companies are spending time researching and learning about prior to making a decision. This was not something that their TopSpot Team felt was being conveyed through the orphan landing pages previously being used for their PPC program that TopSpot inherited.
The orphan landing pages created for the PPC program did not contain any navigation to the rest of their website, contained minimal content and featured a large form on each page.
This strategy was meant to drive conversions, but by providing the user with very little information regarding their platform, was not meeting the needs of the user and likely causing them to leave the site without learning about all of the benefits that Terryberry’s platform could provide.
Instead, the team recommended sending users to internal website pages that contained more content, multiple calls to action to different form options and the ability to navigate throughout the website.
By providing more information for each user finding their website through PPC, the TopSpot Team felt confident that update would get them closer to their post-launch PPC goals.
