practice performance approach, with advertising materials that practices could download
to use in their marketing efforts. As a result, this mid-size manufacturer could give their
surgical customers the ability to market to patients themselves with a unified campaign.
How we did it.
• We developed a fresh new consumer campaign with stopping power and versatility.
The campaign broke the mold among traditional aesthetic consumer marketing
campaigns in terms of tone and design.
• The campaign was leveraged in a “practice marketing toolbox” — a value-add from
VASER® for surgeons to market their practices.
• Elements such as print ads, postcard mailers, outdoor display advertising and
more were available for download so physicians could easily advertise in their
individual markets.
• We also launched a new consumer website as part of the campaign; web traffic
was driven by search engine marketing (SEM) strategies.

Results? Big boosts in surgeon advertising and website traffic.
Since the campaign’s launch, 45% of SST’s surgeon customers have requested access to the campaign and
marketing tools to use for their advertising.
The SEM initiative for the consumer website yielded an all-time high in site traffic. Extensive tracking revealed that
the physician locator led to over 1,000 impressions each for the top 25 doctors. Those doctors also received an
average of 50 click-throughs to their practice websites.
The campaign received multiple creative awards, including a MedAdNews Manny Award for
“Best Medical Device Campaign,” a Silver Rx award for “Best Consumer Print Campaign” and a Silver ADDY
award for “Best Consumer Print Campaign.”
