The Best Local Campaign

The Semrush awards Winning Campaign was for Plus One Vet – A new veterinary clinic in Brisbane that opened in early April 2022. Since opening the campaign saw great success with a targeted local strategy. We were able to increase calls from Google Business Profile by 3400%. Clicks to the website increased by 1090% and Organic traffic increased by 39% in just 6 months. 

Starting with strong research to identify our target market allowed us to determine the best locations to target. As Plus One Vet speaks fluently in a range of languages we decided to target the geo location of the suburb next to that of the clinic. Due to the high asian population in that area this best suited the clinic’s ideal client and target market.

Our strategy consisted of an optimised Google Business Profile with regularly updated Geo tagged photos, on-going posts to boost Google local rankings and the addition of quality written content to the website in the form of informational pages & blog articles helped to increase organic traffic. This organic strategy was paired with a targeted Google Ads campaign to help increase overall traffic and drive conversions to the clinic. 

Since submitting the application for the Semrush search awards Australia, Plus One Vet has grown exponentially to the point where they now have 3 vets employed and have increased their active customer base to over 1000 active customers in just over 8 months.
