The Challenge

Cerba Research partner with two key industries, pharma and biotech, but these sectors face very different challenges, with five different buyer persona’s in each sector with unique needs.

Drive ROI from Paid Search activity

Frustrated with industry average conversion rates for their PPC activity, Cerba Research needed to simplify the B2B buyer journey to convert more of this high intent traffic visiting their site.

Our Solution

With increasingly complex B2B buying cycles and additional decision-makers becoming involved in the buying process, Cerba Research recognized to maximize ROI from paid search, landing pages were no longer going to cut it.

Cerba Research chose to build tailored online journeys for their paid search campaigns, prioritizing the campaigns that generate the most traffic, enabling them to capitalize on high-intent prospects.

Cerba Research did not initially plan to use personalization for paid search activity, but when they saw the impact tailored, relevant content had on the rest of their marketing channels, it became a no-brainer to use personalization for this channel too.

Personalization in action

They started broad with their first campaign, focusing on referencing the company name and the industry of the visitor and how Cerba Research can help them specifically. Then they went narrow, by creating campaigns focused on specific keyword searches and making the entire online experience relevant to those keywords.

This achieved two things:


An extremely relevant, highly tailored online experience for high-intent prospects searching for their solutions


Increased MQL’s for sales
