23 Effects of Psychological Mapping on Paid Advertising The word clinic vs. center has strong connotation and creates a 3X difference in CTR. The difference is understanding the psychology of the words. Clinic conveys Quick Cheap Informal Less-educated personnel Center conveys Expertise Research Formal Educated personnel The target audience is highly empathetic, social, caring, worried thus wanting a more formal, highly educated service with high interaction.
24 Effects of Behavioral Psychology on Value Prop 24 Customer Loved-One Profile Comm. Style - Mirror - Accepting - Fairness - Same compassion - Be Gentle - Tell Stories - Team up with them Personality - Selflessness - Investing in Others - Loves fairness - Hates Criticism - Agreeable - Needs lots of lead up to change Words to Use: We, Us You are doing the right thing They are going to be so much better We are going to help this person together Azure Acres is the most affordable and nurturing treatment center in Northern California.

25 Successes Placed Pressure on Other Areas of the Funnel Poor Reviews on Social Sites were undermining our value proposition 1-Star Rating on Yelp
26 Social Media Became Big Impact 3.5-Star Rating on Yelp We were forced to double our reputation management team and resources to implement effective campaigns: - Rating Monitoring - Proactive Updates - Suppression Management
27 Marketing Optimization Causing Funnel Issues for Phone System & Admissions Admits only related to inquiries created during time period Auto attendant shunts transfer volume away from service advisors Calls abandoned in queue dramatically lower CTC PPC Results 6/17-6/23 6/24-6/30 7/1-7/7 Answered Calls Abandoned in Queue Auto-transfer Total Calls Inquiries Admits % Abandoned 17.9% 5.6% 3.6% Adm/Inq 16.8% 17.8% 13.1% Calls per Inq PPC Spend 14,994 16,387 16,481 Cost per Admit ,268 Too early to tell as additional time needed for patients to matriculate In queue abandonment rates have improved dramatically. Effectiveness of PPC changes potentially promising but still too early to tell. Will need additional time for performance to stabilize before drawing additional conclusions.
28 Transforming the way the phone is answered Examples from call script Many callers are already sold on the program, in which case moving them to the next stage of the funnel quickly may be appropriate or reflecting back their concerns and allowing them to state why they chose to contact Sierra (avoid losing trust but no need to sell at this point). TRUST is biggest issue at this stage. If client was referred, trust is more likely than if they found us online. Will treatment be effective? (Use value prop here: we have been in business over 30 years) Letting people know that we are here and still care regardless if they are ready or not is important and what sets CRC apart from other programs and organizations.
29 Foundation Training was required to educate and enhance employee skills & performance We have developed a training program to help everyone understand the models we incorporated and to ensure consistent performance improvements across the organization. 5 phases of training covering Decision Making, Presentation & Communication, Quantitative Methods, TQM, and Marketing Frameworks Focused on core skills not taught in formal education Foundation Training Marketing Methodologies TQM Quantitative Methods Presentation & Comm.
