A locally owned Spokane Valley health care facility offering a multi-service approach to rehabilitation, therapy, and senior living wanted to acquire more patients and residents. Our team developed a multi-channel campaign to enhance branding; familiarity; and target patients for home health and adult family homes.
The campaign was comprised of billboards, print advertising, online advertising (search, retargeting, display) and landing ages that engaged viewers in a clever, approachable manner, conveying the facilities professionalism, personality, and expertise.
The advertising text invited viewers to get to know the brand and the services they offer. Visuals included their logo along with photos of patients and their caregivers.
Billboard locations were strategically chosen to provide maximum coverage for the facilities Spokane Valley location in highly trafficked arterials. Using Google Analytics, we saw an increase in visits to the website and search term queries that correlated with the billboard messaging.
The entire campaign was a success. From December 2017 to July 2018, the online campaign generated 1.4 million impressions over 3,500 clicks. On average, online ads were viewed nearly 45,000 times a week to effectively promote and enhance their brand awareness and service offerings. The online campaign also generated user form fills and phone calls requesting more information about adult family homes and home health services.
