Dable Native Ad is a platform where hospital advertisers can effectively expand their contact with potential customers online. Why should hospital / healthcare advertisers choose Dable Native Ad?
Article(Content) recommendation area: Dable Native Ad is exposed in the same form as actual articles in the ‘Recommended Articles’ section. Users naturally encounter advertisements during the process of consuming Dable’s affiliated media contents, so hospital’s expertise, which is difficult to communicate through regular search ads, can be smoothly communicated to users as content.
Reasonable ad billing: You can start Dable Ad regardless of the size of ad budget. Ad exposure is free and you are charged only when the user has an interaction (click) with the ad.
Effective and convenient ad operation: Dable’s algorithm learns and automatically optimizes campaign performance. You can also start and stop the campaign at any time.
Geotargeting by city/county/district: When customers in our neighborhood spend time consuming content online, you can deliver messages to them day and night.
How can hospital / healthcare advertisers utilize Dable Native Ad? Customers follow these stages before finally choosing a hospital: [Awareness] – [Consideration] – [Conversion (Visit)]. Here are some helpful tips on how you can use Dable Native Ad for customers at each stage.
1. Set your campaign objective.
Set the goals you want to achieve through advertising. In order to encourage the customers to move on from their current stage to the next stage, you can set the following objectives.
Awareness – Increase awareness: The objective is to inform the hospital to customers who are not aware of the hospital yet. It’s like putting up the hospital sign online. Customers see the ad or click on the ad and reach the landing page that is linked to the ad to get to know more about the hospital.
Consideration – Increase website traffic: Customers who feel the need for medical care are in the stage of exploring hospitals and the objective is to remind potential customers to choose our hospital by encouraging them to visit the hospital’s website, blog, etc.
Conversion – Collect cusotmer leads: The objective is to collect leads for consultation from customers who are ready to complete the consideration phase and choose a hospital. Request information from customers who click on the ad and visit the landing page. The hospital contacts the customer with the collected information and schedules the consultation appointment.
You can have more than 1 objective at once. You are able to run multi-objective campaigns at the same time.
As it is directly related to health, customers choose the hospital very carefully with sufficient information and time. Even if there is no immediate conversion through advertising, awareness and consideration-stage campaigns are important.
2. Create a campaign and content to achieve your objectives.
What is a campaign?
Campaign is a group that binds content together. You can set the budget, campaign period, budget distribution option and targeting by campaign.
① Upload at least 2 contents per campaign.
Until you actually run the campaign, you can’t be sure what kind of responses each content will bring about from the customers. Upload at least two contents to increase the probability of leading a positive response from the customers.
② Be careful not to duplicate campaigns with the same strategy.
A campaign is a unit of ad optimization. Duplicating campaigns create unnecessary competition within the same advertiser. For convenience, separate the campaigns and upload the corresponding content if the budget, campaign period and targeting are different.
Following are examples of campaigns and content.

③ If it’s a region-based hospital, set up geo targeting.
Select the area where the hospital is located and if possible, also the surrounding neighborhoods. Ad exposure may significantly decrease when setting up geo targeting. If you increase your CPC, you are more likely to get more opportunities for exposure.
If you include the ‘region name’ in the ad title without setting up geo targeting, patients who are able to visit the area where the hospital is located are more likely to click on the ad with nationwide exposure.
What is a content?
Content is an ad creative displayed alongside real-time recommended articles on ad spaces designated for personalized ads on Dable’s partner sites. Before you create a campaign, you must upload a content. Once you upload a content, you can use the same content for multiple campaigns.
Content consists of ad title, thumbnail image, ad description (optional) and leads to the linked landing page once the ad is clicked.
① Create a content that attracts customers' attention
Encourage customers to click on the ad by using fascinating copy and image. Provocative ad titles cause unnecessary ad spending with useless clicks and may result in high bounce rates. We recommend that you include all the important information at the beginning of the ad title since some parts of the title may be cut off depending on the ad space.
If you don’t have any images, you can choose from hundreds of images that available for free on the Dable Image Library.

② Link a landing page that is associated with the advertisement
You can use the hospital’s homepage, blog or a web page created specifically for the ad and so on for the landing page. The landing page and the ad clicked by the customer must be relevant with one another.
Customer encounters ads while exploring content to consume on Dable’s affiliated media. Rather than connecting to the main homepage, cusotmers can more naturally consume the ad content if you connect the ad to a page containing content related to the advertisement.
③ Create an environment to track the ad performance after the click
Dable provides transparent and detailed campaign performance data on the Performance Analysis page. By setting up the following methods, you can track customers who converted to the targeted behavior after clicking on the ad. By referring to the tracked performance data, you can run a more effective ad campaign. (i.e. Increasing CPC bidding on media with no conversion)
3. Operational tips by purpose
① Awareness – Increase awareness
