Case Study
Discover how SynergenX grew from start-up to acquiring its largest competitor and becoming the nation’s leading provider of testosterone – in just 7 years!

Learn how SynergenX grew from start-up to the nation’s leading TRT provider in 7 years


SynergenX came to Healthcare Success as a start-up with only a few recently opened clinics. We decided it was a mutually good fit for a partnership and developed a comprehensive marketing plan that included branding, traditional advertising, and digital marketing recommendations.

With an unknown brand, a stigmatized product, and a competitive industry, we knew that SynergenX needed a comprehensive marketing program that represented a proprietary offering that was safe, ethical, and customizable.

At the beginning of our partnership, we launched a successful location-focused integrated marketing program, including a consumer-direct website and landing pages, paid search, and traditional advertising, including radio campaigns and sports sponsorships.

Over the years, our collaboration grew as the company expanded. While we handled the marketing, SynergenX brilliantly handled operations and reimbursement issues -- which were equally vital for success. We eventually developed a scalable, data-driven, and trackable marketing program that helped the company scale to 20 locations, which was large enough to acquire its largest competitor and become the nation’s leading provider of testosterone replacement therapy.

Our Paid Media Strategy

Optimizing SynergenX’s Paid Media Strategy with Nuance

Healthcare Success introduced a nuanced, data-driven marketing approach tailored around specific offerings and geographical areas.

A Strategic Approach to Paid Search

One of SynergenX’s main goals was to attract and convert new patients for testosterone replacement therapy. Our strategic approach included splitting up search terms into branded and non-branded terms. Then, we split up the non-branded campaigns by market to optimize each market area as needed.

Significant factors to the campaign’s success include:

  • Account restructure
  • Continued improvements to the latest landing page
  • Utilizing smart bidding
  • Extensive negative keyword list
  • High ad strength scores
  • New ad copy
  • New keyword mining/discovery
  • Restructuring keywords/match types
Attract New Audiences, Increase Brand Awareness
and Drive Conversions with Paid Social Media

We elevated SynergenX’s social media marketing to the next level by creating a unified, polished, branded social media presence with curated advertisements.

Major factors to the campaign’s success include:

  • Account restructuring
  • Broke out retargeting vs. prospecting
  • New ad creative rotated into account
  • Updated ad copy to minimize ad fatigue
  • Testing video & static against dynamic
  • Location-based ad campaigns
  • Continual optimization of digital efforts
  • Focused on bringing in more qualified traffic through lookalike audiences and custom audiences

Split testing was also a crucial component in conversion campaign growth. We incorporated different versions of copy, images, creative, and call-to-actions to see what was performing best monthly and utilize that to optimize and grow.

Branding, Website Design and Development

As part of the growth strategy, we developed a solidified brand and new website to gain confidence with the consumer in a competitive market. The mobile-first, SEO-friendly website captured the target audience's attention while educating consumers on the safety and efficacy of SynergenX’s proprietary testosterone replacement therapy.
