The Canadian Lung Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting healthy lungs and fighting lung disease. As a long-time client, CLA approached Cyan Solutions to help them increase website traffic, raise awareness of lung diseases and drive more donations to their website, through their Google Ad Grant Account.



The Canadian Lung Association was seeking to make better use of its Google Ad Grant Account, which provides up to $10,000 per month in free advertising on Google Search. The Ad Grant Program requires a Click-Through-Rate of 5% minimum to keep the grant privileges. Cyan’s job was to create compelling campaigns and keep them serving well above the minimum benchmark while striving to increase overall website traffic, online donations and general awareness. 




Cyan Solutions developed a comprehensive strategy to help the Canadian Lung Association make the most of their Google Ad Grant Account. The team conducted extensive research to identify the most effective keywords for the organization and developed a series of targeted ads that would be displayed to potential donors when they searched for these keywords.

Our team focused on creating ads that would appeal to the emotions of potential donors and encourage them to take action. We also wrote compelling ad copy to increase the audience size of website users visiting the general Lung Disease section of the CLA website. 

The ads were designed to be eye-catching, informative, and easy to understand, with a strong call to action to visit the Canadian Lung Association’s website.




With Cyan Solutions’ help, the Canadian Lung Association was able to achieve a spend of nearly $90,000 through their Google Ad Grant Account. The organization saw a significant increase in website traffic, info sheet downloads, increased time on site and increased user sessions. This increase in traffic was largely due to the success of the ads, which achieved click-through rates (CTRs) of over 20%.

Additionally, the team was able to drive more traffic to the Canadian Lung Association’s donations page, resulting in more online donations. These results were achieved through a combination of carefully targeted ads and ongoing optimization of the ad campaigns to ensure that they were as effective as possible.
