Many websites are not equipped well enough to support foundation marketing requires. Not only are they not equipped to support marketing efforts, but there is also little chance the Google spiders will visit, or rank them. Outreach professionals and CEO’s need to get more referral sources.

Many are quick to say drug rehab marketing on the web doesn’t work. Many owners have been burned by the large drug rehab marketing agency cookie cutter options.

Addiction Conferences EMP Educates on Google Affecting Drug Rehab Marketing Efforts

How to rank organically and in maps on Google.

Some treatment centers are racing to get legit script certification due to Google’s healthcare and medicines policy. According to the policy, this certification is only needed if treatment centers, sober livings, lead generations, referral agencies, and crisis hotlines wish to do paid advertising.

In the United States, advertisers will need to be certified by Legit Script as addiction services providers before they can advertise through Google Ads. Google advertising policies.

These centers are racing and fighting to get paid search ads on the first page of Google. These paid ads only account for 2% of Google’s page one click-troughs. The top 3 organic listings get a whopping 70% of the click-throughs. The legit script certification is not needed to get on page one of Google organically or to rank in the 3 Google maps listings.

Centers need to be better educated on how to get on page one of Google organically. Many drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers and opiate detox West Palm Beach centers need more education on proven drug rehab marketing practices to survive. Many are making fundamental mistakes in their drug rehab marketing. These mistakes are preventing them from ranking on page one organically and in the 3 coveted Google maps listings.

California Addiction Conferences EMP Series Provides Tools to Survive

Many treatment centers have gotten away with a poor marketing strategy. 90% of addiction treatment centers have poor drug rehab SEO. The new marketing laws in place will affect ethical operators as we have seen in Florida. Only the smartest and best educated will survive. Relying on old strategies puts your organization at great risk during this unprecedented time. Learning how to operates more effectively, internal restructuring and having a healthy marketing mix are paramount.

Web marketing outproduces all other marketing combined. However, our industry has done a poor job overall with web marketing. Poor website structure, SEO, social media, and content that is not attracting and engaging are just some of the areas that centers need to focus on. They also need better administrative, business and billing strategies.

The California Addiction Conferences EMP Series is an outstanding event for California treatment centers, sober homes, detox’s, private clinicians, and any sales/service related organization. We are working on bringing these events to other cities and educating California drug rehabs, Texas, and Atlanta to name a few. Contact us if you are interested in co-hosting an event.
