Marketing Frustrations: Spending More Money Trying To Fix It

Rate this post

Just a couple of days ago my coaching team had another one of these types of conversations:


“When I first started Google Ads I didn’t get much response. I assumed that the reason was that I wasn’t spending enough money.

I doubled my budget, and then again and again, and yet still there was no real improvement in the response I was getting.

After three months, I’d spent over $3700 and got nothing in return.

I thought that if I just spent more money on marketing that I could make it work.”

– Andrea Novack, PT, Arkansas.


This type of conversation happens a LOT on our Free Marketing Plan Strategy calls…

…PTs basically telling us that they THOUGHT/ASSUMED that the way to solve their marketing problem was to spend more money on their marketing – even though it’s not working.

Winning the lottery won’t fix an unhappy marriage and neither will spending more money on a marketing strategy that isn’t right.

Getting up an hour earlier and going to bed an hour later won’t automatically solve the problems in your business.

You just end up more TIRED while you are working on the wrong things and so the downward spiral begins.

Work even harder, make more mistakes, get no results.

Work even harder than harder, make more mistakes than before – still get no results.

In the case of Andrea, it was a WEBSITE issue…

To be more specific, it was a MESSAGE issue on her website…

And to be even more specific, it was a lack of matching up the message in the Google Ad to the Website.

Easy to fix – once you know how!

And yet, this type of thing is happening day after day after day after day to clinic owners who will wrongly assume that Google “doesn’t work for them”.

What’s the answer?

Have a PLAN in place BEFORE you spend any money on marketing.

When it comes to Marketing, if you do not have a PLAN for who you’re going to attract, what the message is, how many times they’ll need to see the message and many other factors that need to be considered when it comes to marketing your clinic, it really is doomed to fail.
