Resources for Business and Drug Rehab Marketing Strategies

business and marketing education for drug rehab ownersThe addiction professional referral group is a trusted resource for business, drug rehab marketing, and administrative operating strategies. Our industry is experiencing unprecedented changes affecting the administration, business, and marketing operating procedures. Laissez-faire business strategies are no longer effective. Using the old business and marketing strategies puts organizations in our industry at great risk of closing their doors. We are seeing many addiction treatment centers and opiate detox and sober livings closing their doors. The organizations that are closing all have one thing in common. They stayed with business as usual tactics including boots on the ground marketing, call centers, and Adwords as their main strategies. They all suffered from Digital Darwinism.

The Internet is the #1 Source for Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Centers

internet the number source for drug rehab marketingThe web is the absolute #1 resource to reach potential clients in any business. The number of people using the internet is growing astronomically every day. The lightspeed growth has caused severe marketing problems for almost every industry. Understanding how to effectively utilize the web to generate clients or customers is an overwhelming task. Almost all treatment centers and ancillary service providers in the substance abuse industry do not understand web marketing. Our industry has traditionally resorted to short-term solutions to their long-term problem of maintaining a census. They, almost always are looking for an instant return (30 days) on their marketing.

Over 90% of our industry suffers from digital Darwinism. Digital Darwinism is when technology moves faster than industries can adapt. Why does web drug rehab marketing outperform all other marketing combined?

  1. Currently, the average person spends nearly 10 hours a day online. Unbelievably, we now spend more time on the Internet than we do sleeping (8.4 hours).
  2. Today there are approximately 7.4 billion people living on the planet, and ~ 23 billion internet of things (IoT) connected devices, which is an average of 3 devices per person. By 2025 it is estimated that there will be over 75 billion IoT connected devices worldwide.
  3. There will be at least 3.5 billion Google searches performed every day. Google also processes over 40K search queries every second. That translates to 1.2 trillion Google searches per year.
  4. Google.com is the most popular website in the world. Youtube.com is second and Facebook.com is third.
  5. Internet users have an average of 7.6 social media accounts
  6. The average daily time spent on social is 116 minutes a day
  7. There is a new social media user every 15 seconds.
  8. Facebook Messenger and Whatsapp handle 60 billion messages a day
  9. Facebook: 2.072 billion users
  10. Youtube: 1.5 billion users
  11. Wechat: 1.12 billion users
  12. WhatsApp: 900 million users
  13. Instagram: 800 million users
  14. Weibo: 600 million users
  15. LinkedIn: 500 million users
  16. Twitter: 330 million users
  17. Reddit: 234 million users
  18. Pinterest: 200 million users
  19. Snapchat: 178 million daily users

Understanding Drug Rehab Marketing Like You Understand Addiction Treatment

Business and drug rehab marketing strategies for drug and alcohol addiction treatment centersAlmost every addiction treatment center owner understands addiction treatment and has an extreme passion to help others. However, this is only 1/3 of what is needed to run a successful drug and alcohol addiction treatment center. Owners of treatment centers and sober livings also need to completely understand the business and marketing components. They have to be extremely educated in these two areas. Relying upon a drug rehab marketing agency and drug rehab business consultants is extremely risky if they are not educated in these areas. Having a solid education in these areas is paramount for owners and operators. With this key knowledge, operators will be able to tell if these professionals are performing for their organization.

For example, over 90% of substance abuse provider websites are not structurally correct. Poor website development is the #1 and most costly mistake made in web marketing. If a website is not structurally correct, you are leaking Google juice. Every marketing dollar you are putting into web marketing, without having a structurally correct website, is being wasted by leaking Google juice and the opportunity to get on page one of Google organically. It is extremely easy to tell if a treatment center understands web marketing by looking at their website. A website is the foundation of web marketing. If your website is not structurally correct, you are wasting every marketing dollar you put into web marketing.

The top 3 organic slots and Google maps account for 70% of page one click-throughs. To put into perspective, AdWords or PPC only accounts for 2% of the click-throughs. While AdWords does produce calls, many of these calls are poor with many asking for Medicaid and Medicare. The top 3 organic leads are much more qualified for the services and insurance provided.

Why is a Website the #1 Mistake in Drug Rehab Marketing?

number_mistake_made_in_drug_rehab_marketingThe # mistake in drug rehab marketing is website development. When you build a house, you build it on concrete. Almost all drug rehab websites are built on sand. Almost all websites in our industry are built by website designers, not website developers. This critical and costly error is the fault of the treatment center owner and the marketing agencies they have used. As an owner, if you understood what needs to be done for proper website structure and drug rehab SEO, you would be able to tell if the professionals you hired are doing their job.

The important difference is a designer will build a beautiful, aesthetically appealing website. A website developer opens the golden Google doors for Google to effectively communicate with google’s searcher. Many addiction treatment centers websites are ascetically beautiful. While this is somewhat useful for the target market, it is not very useful in Google ranking your website on page one. The first part of getting on page one of Google is to have a website that communicates to Google that you can answer the terms that are searched.  Here are some of the common mistakes made substance abuse websites;

  • Is the hierarchy of our website good for Google?
  • Do we have schema (Sign Posts for Google) incorporated into our website?
  • Does our website have a sitemap and have we told Google it’s there?
  • Is our website fast enough on mobile for the new speed update released on July 9, 2018?
  • Are we using Yoast to check the bare minimum for our drug rehab SEO?
  • Are the URL’s for our website correct for SEO?
  • Does our website have an SSL certificate?
  • Does our blog have SEO for our keywords? If so, what are those keywords and how many of the blog posts have made it to page one of Google?
  • Do the main pages of our website have SEO for these keywords?
  • Have we done an H-Tag audit on our website
  • Do our pics have ALT tags and are they geocoded?
  • Have we done a hyperlocal page?
  • Do we have a skyscraper article?
  • Are our Google maps properly coded and placed on our website?
  • How are we building quality back-links?
  • How many citations do we have?
  • Do we understand and utilize your Google Analytics?
  • Do we understand and use call tracking metrics?
  • What is our list of keywords based on our organization’s services? And, out of those keywords which ones can, we easily rank for on the first page of Google?
  • Do we understand Google analytics and how to use it to build our marketing campaign?
  • What posts are producing the most calls from our call tracking metrics?
  • When was the last time we posted in our Google My Business?
  • When was the last time we uploaded pictures in our Google My Business?
  • Are our pictures on the website optimized (GEO and Keywords)?
  • Is our blog attracting and engaging for our target audience?
  • Are we building a targeted and captured social media audience (from SEO visits) of professionals and individuals seeking treatment with our drug rehab marketing on Facebook and LinkedIn?
  • Does our cuurent drug rehab marketing agency provide SEO training?

How Does Boots on the Ground Compare to Web Marketing

Poor-drug-rehab-marketing-strategies-boots-on-the-groundThe industry trend has been traditionally relying upon boots on the ground marketing. While this should be a part of your marketing mix, it should only be one piece. Above you see the astronomical numbers of people using the web and the amazing activity that is produced every day. It is impossible for outreach to obtain even 1% of these numbers. The small to medium players consensus is that we cannot compete with the big players because they are spending too much on web marketing. This is a huge misconception in our industry. The small to medium players can outperform the big players in some areas if they have;

  • Proper website structure
  • On page and off page SEO
  • Use of key long tail keywords
  • Knowing where and how to get PR7, PR8 and PR9 backlinks

Understanding the Business Side of Addiction Treatment

business-and-drug-rehab-marketing-educationOur industry is experiencing many paradigm shifts. It is critical that operators of drug rehabilitation centers, opiate detox and sober homes get educated on proven business strategies. The conversations on the business and operation side of our industry are much different than the conversations that outreach professionals have. Only the best-educated CEO’s, Executives and Directors will survive the extreme competition in our 40 billion dollars a year industry. These leaders need to completely understand many different areas;

  • Marketing
  • Billing
  • Insurance Reimbursements
  • Laws and Regulations
  • EMR’s
  • CRM’s
  • Licensing
  • Accreditations and Certifications

Press Release; Governor Scott Declares Opioid Public Health Emergency

 

Here is Gov. Scott’s Press Release Declaring Statewide Public Health Emergency for Opioid Epidemic

 

Tallahassee, Fla. — Today, following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) declaring a national opioid epidemic, Governor Rick Scott signed Executive Order 17-146 directing a Public Health Emergency across the state. By signing the Emergency Order, it will allow the state to immediately draw down more than $27 million in federal grant funding from the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Opioid State Targeted Response Grant which was awarded to Florida on April 21 to provide prevention, treatment and recovery support services. Without the order, it would have taken months for the state to distribute these funds to local communities. In addition to declaring a Public Health Emergency, Surgeon General Dr. Celeste Philip will issue a standing order for Naloxone, an emergency treatment for opioid overdose. This will ensure first responders have immediate access to this lifesaving drug to respond to opioid overdoses.

Governor Scott said, “Today, I issued an executive order which allows the state to immediately draw down more than $27 million in federal grant funding which will immediately be distributed to communities across the state to deal with the opioid epidemic. HHS Secretary Dr. Tom Price awarded the Opioid State Targeted Response Grant to Florida and I want to thank the Trump Administration for their focus on this national epidemic. I have also directed State Surgeon General Dr. Celeste Philip to declare a Public Health Emergency and issue a standing order for Naloxone in response to the opioid epidemic in Florida.

“Last month, I directed the Department of Children and Families (DCF), the Department of Health (DOH) and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to meet with communities in Palm Beach, Manatee, Duval, and Orange Counties to identify additional strategies to fight the rising opioid usage cases in Florida. They have gotten a lot of feedback this week and we will continue to look at additional ways we can fight this national epidemic which has taken the lives of many Floridians.

“I know firsthand how heartbreaking substance abuse can be to a family because it impacted my own family growing up. The individuals struggling with drug use are sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and friends and each tragic case leaves loved ones searching for answers and praying for help. Families across our nation are fighting the opioid epidemic and Florida is going to do everything possible to help our communities.”

Attorney General Pam Bondi said, “This declaration will help strengthen our continued efforts to combat the national opioid epidemic claiming lives in Florida by providing additional funding to secure prevention, treatment and recovery support services. I want to thank Governor Rick Scott for his continued partnership in combating drug abuse in our state; from shutting down pill mills to outlawing deadly synthetic drugs, Governor Scott has long supported efforts by my office and law enforcement to raise awareness, stop drug abuse and save lives.”

See the Executive Order and Public Health Emergency here.

Behavioral health thought leaders have been attending addiction conferences to get better educated on the drug rehab marketing changes. Other government leaders have been pushing legislation fighting the epidemic reducing the gray, illegal operating areas of treatment centers and sober living facilities. Dave Aronberg, Florida State Attorney, and Al Johnson, Asst. State Attorney have put an army of law enforcement in place closing down operators who are participating in illegal patient brokering and putting many lives in danger. They have also been the driving force for tighter laws by pursuing legislation that protects those seeking treatment, and those in treatment.

These key players fighting the epidemic are making changes to industry marketing and operating regulations with House Bill 807, and 65D30. All industry Executives “Need to Know” the extreme changes that are coming, get involved now, be prepared for the changes about to occur, and get educated on ethical business practices. 

You can speak with 5 Thought Leader Addiction Panelists on the coming changes to our industry including Asst. State Attorney, Al Johnson in an open Town Hall Forum on the Sober Homes Task Force on how it was formed, where it is now, and what’s in the future. Get the landscape of the legislative changes coming from the Director of Special Projects at Palm Beach County Substance Awareness Coalition and the groundbreaking work they are doing in re-molding the Administrative and Marketing Changes that are coming soon.

You can check out the entire 5/10/17 addiction conferences in Riviera Beach, Florida.

 

 

 

 

Where are your addiction treatment marketing dollars

Where Are Your Addiction Treatment Marketing Dollars?

Addiction treatment marketing dollars are plentiful in the 40 billion dollars a year industry, but many are unaware they are wasting their drug rehab marketing budget. There are many layers of their marketing mix that need to be in place to be effective and understood to not waste their marketing budget.

Allocating Addiction Treatment Marketing Dollars is Complicated

How to allocate your Addiction Treatment Marketing DollarsMany drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers don’t realize the base number that they must invest yearly with their addiction treatment marketing dollars to grow ethically. There is a baseline number that addiction treatment centers and addiction sales/service organizations should be spending on their marketing budget. There are many components needed in their marketing mix; website, drug rehab SEO, pay per click, “DRIP” Campaigns, and mobile optimization. These are just a few of many. Some other areas are; call center lead generation, snail mail, email mail marketing, organic rankings, and gorilla marketing.  As the list goes on it also includes Facebook, LinkedIn, addiction professional conferences, branding, networking, knowing all the search engines, listings on high traffic addiction sites, being a thought leader and many more.

One more extremely important piece is putting into place analytics; Google analytics, and call tracking. Google is free, and call tracking is very inexpensive. The information that these give will save treatment centers big dollars. They must be able to tell what is working, what is not working, and adjust quickly to these situations.

Addiction Treatment Marketing Dollars It’s in the Mix

There are many that are not using a marketing mix, and not spending enough while expecting results that they will not be able to achieve with what they have allocated for their marketing. There are big dollars that can be generated in profits. However, there is a cost to marketing in our industry. Being wise with their treatment centers addiction treatment marketing dollars is becoming paramount.

Addiction professionals getting educated on saving Addiction treatment marketing dollarsMany behavioral health organizations put all their marketing dollars into boots on the ground strategy. This tight-knit network can only produce a limited amount of referrals. This is extremely risky considering they are trading the same referrals. This is the #1 reason the turn over rate for outreach professionals is 6-12 months. At some point, treatment centers must generate new referrals. Web marketing outperforms all other marketing combined, however, it requires a foundation including proper website development, SEO, and social media marketing. Owners must provide education and resources for their outreach professionals and provide them with useful tools instead of hiring them solely based on their referral sources. Contracting an experienced drug rehab marketing consultant can provide these tools in addition to guidance on how to properly set-up your website, SEO and social media marketing.

Caution with Valuable Drug Rehab Marketing Dollars

We have a client, that is utilizing our drug rehab social media marketing to maximize his treatment centers addiction treatment marketing dollars. This client is brand new to web marketing in our industry. They were shocked at how complicated and expensive it is to have a successful marketing campaign, and the many different components it entails.

We explained, there are about 75 big players spending $500,000-$1,500,000 per month just in PPC/ADWORDS. This makes it extremely difficult for small to medium players.

 

Common mistakes made with addiction treatment marketingThe smaller players often make a critical mistake when that are investing in their marketing. Their mistake is the very 1st step needed and is often skipped or not respected. The thought that this is too costly is extremely short-sighted because they burn much more than that before they figure out that what they are doing is not working.

Drug Rehab Marketing Revenue Saved by S.W.O.T.

Addiction treatment Marketing Consultant examining marketing plan to save addiction treatment marketing dollars

 

We suggested to do a S.W.O.T analysis and explained, a SWOT analysis digs deep and reveals many cost-saving avenues for marketing. This is important because we need to know where the big players are spending and the players that are on your level. Without this crucial piece of intelligence the marketing it is just a guessing game and dollars are being wasted. This analysis also looks at where your web assets are leaking Google juice. Website development and SEO are the top mistakes made by organizations in the addiction treatment industry. Without these be set-up properly you will continue to waste marketing dollars.

This client knew we were thought leaders in marketing in the addiction treatment industry by our activity and exposure.

 

We carefully explained the many pain points in a treatment centers addiction marketing. I went in depth on the many avenues to consider including PPC, call center lead generation, “drip” campaigns, mobile devices (#1 in conversion rates, and if your site is not mobile friendly GOOGLE will no longer index your site), Facebook, LinkedIn, organic site marketing vs paid site marketing, crowdsourcing organic model, and many more. It critical to find a way to follow-up with and keep putting all the individuals that called, inquired, or clicked through on their services through the sales funnel again, and again until they become a client.

This client with the help of our web marketing partners is now enjoying 4-6 new clients every month with an investment that is only a fraction of the revenue they are generating.

Learn Where Your Addiction Treatment Marketing Dollars Are

Addiction treatment marketing dollars can be saved. Many drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers take short-cuts, and many times take the lowest bidder for their marketing. Some hire a large drug rehab marketing agency thinking they are covered. Understanding why these mistakes are being made is paramount. These are critical mistakes that cost big money. Many owners do not like what the experienced marketing leaders in our industry tell them, and the investment that is needed to generate clients. Taking the lowest bidder, and short-cuts costs twice as much than if you invested the time, money, and resources to get the many mechanisms in place for effective marketing. If these are not in place your web marketing efforts will be ineffective.

Addiction-conferences-educating-on-moments-of-change-with-addiction-treatment-marketing-dollars-by-behavioral-health-network-resourcesAddiction conferences are educating on the moments of change with the drug rehab marketing and business side of behavioral health. You can get valuable ethical marketing and business education at our addiction conferences educating on ethical business and drug rehab marketing.

Lack of experienced addiction treatment marketing specialists is costing you drug rehab marketing dollars

Addiction Treatment Marketing Specialists Save Dollars

Addiction treatment marketing specialists are extremely valuable in addiction recovery marketing. Without a specialized drug rehab marketing agency, drug rehab marketing consultants, website development specialists and experienced drug rehab SEO you’re wasting your addiction recovery marketing dollars. If you’re a new start-up or have been around for any amount of time, you realize the need for experienced addiction treatment marketing professionals and drug rehab marketing consultants to one degree, or another. Without an addiction treatment marketing specialist as a guide, your addiction treatment marketing is costing you more than it should. There are so many components you must consider when operating an addiction treatment center, and it’s too costly to make mistakes.

What Are Addiction Treatment Marketing Specialists

Addiction treatment marketing specials provide valuable information for drug rehabsMarketing is the most important aspect of any business; it’s the hand that feeds you. There are many areas that expertise is needed to achieve results. The most successful drug rehabilitation recovery centers have drug rehab marketing consultants, drug rehab marketing agencies, addiction recovery website developers and drug rehab SEO experts. Even with the following in place, many centers fail to use, or understand Google analytics, and call tracking. These are a MUST have for every drug rehab marketing plan. They must understand how to use them to quickly adjust their marketing efforts. If you not utilizing these, you’re wasting some of your addiction recovery marketing dollars. Addiction treatment marketing specialists prevent costly mistakes in the 35 billion dollars a year industry.

What Useful Information do Addiction Treatment Marketing Specialists Provide?

Addiction treatment marketing specialists provide some of the many things that should be in your drug and alcohol addiction treatment center marketing. These drug rehab marketing specialists are experienced in web development (with a respected and industry experienced firm), Call Tracking, SEO, ADWORDS, PPC, Call Centers, Social Media Marketing (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, G+), email marketing, Blog Writers, Outreach professionals, etc… Many do not use these specialists or a drug rehab marketing agency.

Addiction Treatment Marketing specialist educate on Google 70% click rateMany that do, use individuals or companies who have little or no experience in Drug Rehab, or use agencies that provide a cookie cutter solution. Did you experience Google vacuuming out your wallet with the outrageous costs of AdWords, and returning very few treatment calls and admissions? You are not alone. In fact, pay per click only accounts for 1.91% of the click-throughs on page one of Google. Can you guess how may click troughs organic results get? A whopping 70% for the first three organic slots. Also, we must consider the coveted Google 3-pack in the maps listings.

 

The quote below is just a more sophisticated way of saying “you get what you pay for.” If you are considering hiring addiction treatment marketing specialists for your substance abuse marketing, then hire a team with deep knowledge in the addiction treatment industry. While there are many addiction treatment marketing mistakes, the #1 mistake is experimenting. Trying to use inexperienced individuals, or teams who are new to the drug rehab industry. This will cost you twice as much to correct, then using an experienced marketing organization. We see this all the time with the #1 reason web marketing fails for many drug rehabilitation recovery centers.

“Vision without execution is a hallucination.” – Thomas Edison

Addiction Treatment Marketers; Bad Boys, Bad Boys, What Ya Gonna Do When They Come for You?

Addiction treatment marketers are feeling the heat from the national spotlight on West Palm Beach, Florida. However, the issues are nationwide and will continue unless we have industry regulation. Florida is the national leader on industry regulation by providing a formula that many other states will adopt with the exceptional legislative work that is being done here.

Addiction Treatment Marketers Be Aware

Addiction treatment marketers must be aware that the Sober Living Task Force has demonstrated Florida is serious about cleaning up the addiction treatment industry. Dave Aronberg (Florida State Attorney) Head of Sober Homes Task Force, and his army have raided many sober homes, treatment centers, and labs with many more to come. They have made it abundantly clear that if you are patient brokering, endangering lives, and operating outside of the law you will be in serious trouble with legal issues and possible jail time.

Addiction Treatment Marketers and Patient Brokering with the Florida Shuffle

Many addiction treatment marketers are well aware of the laws coming. Mr. Aronberg and his army are putting legislation in place (House Bill 807) to protect and save lives from patient brokering and bring regulation to the Wild, Wild, West. Everyone in the addiction treatment industry needs to know and clearly understand the changes in the law that are coming soon. These changes will drastically affect the current marketing and administrative practices of treatment centers and sober livings.

Florida law against addiction treatment marketersWhile some green “marketers” are still unaware of the current law, 2017 Florida Statute Chapter 817 Fraudulent Practices or in common language “patient brokering” (stricter laws and regulation in House Bill 807), that they are patient brokering, the press and social media exposure have made it difficult to have any compassion for anyone (patient brokers, or recovery advocates) who is in the gray area regardless if they are new to the industry.

The vast national “black market” of illegal addiction treatment marketers that have been abusing vulnerable and desperate individuals seeking treatment are being watched and investigated. These new laws affect many “patient brokers” and “recovery advocates” nationwide with the new Florida laws because many are tied into the treatment centers and sober livings in Florida that are getting busted. The new “Florida Model” laws will certainly be adopted nationwide especially in CA, TX, NY, and AZ to name a few. However, this is also going to affect the addiction treatment centers West Palm Beach.

It is paramount for West Palm Beach CEO’s, Owners, Directors, and Outreach to understand the new drug rehab marketing landscape and adopt ethical marketing and operating practices. Many in our industry have their opinions of what is ethical from second-hand information. This new era will ensure much-needed regulation, ensure everyone will understand the new laws, and generate true professionals in our industry that are qualified to make assessments for treatment and be labeled “professionals”.
