Pay-Per-Click Campaigns That Increase Private Home Care Hours
Whether your carers work in one specific area or across a large section of the UK, providing general or highly specialised care, pay-per-click (PPC) advertising has become an essential part of home care marketing campaigns. In fact, it’s so effective because of the different niches home care providers can occupy – you can ensure you’re finding the people for whom you’re the perfect fit.
Types of Online Paid Advertising
These types of paid ads all operate under a pay-per-click bid model. This means that you don’t pay for the ad so much as you just pay a certain amount of money every time someone clicks on it. It’s a bit like an auction – the more you’re willing to bid for that click, the more likely it is that your ad will be served up to your targeted audience.
And paid search ads can indeed be highly targeted based on a huge range of factors from a user’s identity and behaviour. Ads can be targeted at people searching for home care in specific areas, or for certain types of care, such as elderly care or disability care, for example.
Google Ads for Home Care Providers
Google Ads, or Adwords as it was formerly known, is Google’s PPC platform. As you might expect from the most-used search engine in the world, it’s very widely used and very competitive.
But the potential it provides when you get it right is incredible – you can position yourself right at the top of Google based on really specific criteria, and start generating leads almost instantly.
But to make the most of it, you need someone who understands not just the platform, but also your audience, your services, your competitors and your industry – and that’s us.
Microsoft Advertising for Home Care Providers
With around 21% of the UK’s market share, Bing isn’t to be sniffed at – and its Microsoft Advertising (formerly known as Bing Ads) is worth a look.
With a similar setup to Google Ads, but generally with far less competition, there’s great potential on Bing for cost-effective digital marketing that often goes untapped. Particularly when you consider that Bing tends to have an older user base – its users are more likely to be the age of the sons and daughters who need to arrange home care for elderly parents, or even themselves.
Home Care Display Advertising
Display advertising is a part of Google Ads, but instead of showing ads in search results, they are displayed (get it?) on third-party websites. Yes, the dreaded banner ads. While many people dislike them, they do work – and they’re fantastic for brand and name recognition.
Positioning display ads on the websites your potential customers are using helps build trust, and if they don’t actually click through from the ad, it keeps you at the forefront of their minds when they come to search for a home care solution.
Home Care YouTube Advertising
YouTube is technically the second biggest search engine in the world, after Google – it just searches its own database, rather than every corner of the internet it can reach. In terms of the number of times people type a query in the box, it’s the second highest. That means there’s a huge potential to be seen.
Pre-roll ads before other videos give you five seconds of someone’s time – often while they’re on YouTube to search for a solution to a specific problem, as we all do. We can help you be seen by the right people, at the right time.

I got my first care enquiry 10 minutes after getting the call to let me know that the campaign was live & about 2 weeks after going live I secured my first client from a lead that Smooth generated!!
