There are players out there spending over $500,000 per month in PPC. A $5,000 to $20,000 per month budget gets eaten up fast and produces many Medicaid and Medicare Calls.

Centers need a proven and health marketing mix. Many centers do not have a clear understanding of what is a healthy marketing mix. Generating leads requires a mixture of proven strategies including;

  • Drug rehab marketing and SEO
  • Proper website development

There are many small to medium size addiction treatment centers that have been left behind. They cannot afford the Google AdWords and PPC game because its too expensive. It is critical that many adopt a proven business and marketing plan. They need to generate clients, and ancillary service providers need to generate more clients. The companies need to closely look at their infrastructure and provide tools to generate revenue and increase return on investment. The smaller players are going to waste a lot of marketing dollars to figure out that Google AdWords will not produce results. They need to rank in Google Maps and page one top 10 organically. Many do not realize there are 40,000 searches on google every second!
