Addiction-Rep’s Jim Peake To Speak on Ethical Marketing Practices in the Addiction Treatment Industry
There have been a number of changes in the addiction treatment industry in the past several years, both from an insurance standpoint — with the...
Some of the best leads that can be had on the Internet are the folks who are “local,” or within a day’s drive to your treatment center. We can assist you in setting up in many of the local directories including Google Places.
If you want a stronger presence on the Internet, it’s critical to get “citations” from other higher ranking websites. A majority of these websites tend to be directory type of sites. Addiction-Rep.com provides a beneficial service called NAP (Name, Address & Phone). It’s best to manually submit your listing with NAP to as many directories as possible. In doing this, you want to be extremely consistent with your listing information.
For example, there is a big difference if your listing says:
123 Main Street
My City, ST 00000
123 Main St.
My City, ST 00000
To a computer these are two different listings. It doesn’t matter which one you use, but it is important that your rehab name and address stay consistent throughout.
If you are an IOP, it’s important to get directory listings as your target audience is between a 15-50 mile radius at most. In order for you to get you started, I recommend you start listing your addiction treatment center with drug rehab directories first, then other normal business type directories second. Some are more important than others.
Keep in mind that many of these listings are owned and run by other treatment facilities. Hence, they can play games with your listings if you are not paying attention. Make sure you know exactly what you are getting before you post your rehab on these directory sites. Some of them charge a monthly fee and others are free.
