WHY INVEST IN SEO?
Increase Traffic and Improve Organic Growth
A Look Into Our SEO Process and Workflow
To convince search engines like Google or Bing that your company website is the most relevant to the searchers need, it needs to be optimized with correct keywords and content. This process is called search engine optimization (SEO). Search engines like Bing and Google loves to show the most relevant pages on the 1st Page of their SERP and this ensures your website is shown when potential clients are searching for products or services you offer.
Considering there are so many different digital marketing techniques, it can be difficult to know which deserves your attention. Don’t fear, we can provide advice when it comes to SEO!
Search engine optimization or SEO is still the top online marketing channel and strategy today. It’s safe to say that if you’re not including SEO for your digital marketing campaign, you’re doing it wrong. SEO is the total sum of tactics and strategies you execute to ensure your rehab facility shows up high in search engine rankings for certain keywords.
Basically, you want to rank high in Google and be on the first page – by doing it organically. This is important because 75% of online users never scroll past the first page of search engines.
While it’s never a bad idea to optimize for other search engines, the majority of your SEO efforts should focus on Google because it has the lion share of the search engine market. Optimizing for higher search rankings will not only allow you to get more traffic but it’s more cost-effective as well. SEO is a long-term strategy that could provide beneficial results for months and even years down the line.
We can match our client’s budget and desired growth with our SEO marketing efforts.
Here’s our standards pricing:
- Basic: $3,500/monthly
- Standard: $5,500/monthly
- Premium: $7,500/monthly
Getting results from SEO strategies will not happen overnight. In our experience, any SEO agency that guarantees quick results and top rankings is misleading its customers. The timeline for SEO strategies and projects will vary depending on your specific needs, budget, and expectations. The regional competition, vertical, and maturity of your online presence also factor in significantly.

CHICAGO WEB DESIGN
A Website Made For Growth
Chicago Web Design Agency
Other than your website’s content, the most important aspect of it is the website design. If your website design is hard to navigate, overcrowded, or simply doesn’t function properly, you will not be creating a good user experience. We have all heard the popular saying, “You can’t judge a book by its cover”. But, when it comes to website design, this saying doesn’t apply.
If your Chicago based company’s website design is not appealing, those potentially interested in finding addiction treatment will move on to websites that are easier to navigate and thus seem like a more appealing place to stay. The good news is that 12SM digital marketing agency has a great team of website developers who can help you create an excellent, user-friendly website design at very affordable pricing. Pair that with your SEO marketing campaign and a ROI focused website, you will ensure that your business is built for long term growth.
Short answer: It really depends. Some clients just need a quick design upgrades, which can be finished in less than a week. While others want a brand new design, complete with a new marketing automation system on the backend. This can take several weeks to months with reviews, iterations, and testing along the way. Your dedicated project manager will assess your goals and needs, and set expectations on how long it will take to deliver on your requests before starting anything.
Not a problem. We’ll do a proper conversion rate optimization and improve user experience to dramatically increase your conversions and get the most out of your visiting traffic.
Pricing will vary depending on the complexity and size of the project. Our standard pricing for full web design and development starts at $4,500/one-time fee and it can go upwards of $10,000.

CHICAGO PPC MANGEMENT
Drive More Leads & Admissions
Google Ads (PPC) Management for Chicago Companies
Pay-Per-Click (PPC) marketing is one of the fastest digital marketing channels to generate leads and admissions for your addiction treatment center. However, speed does not equal simplicity. Making your campaign profitable can prove incredibly challenging, owing to the high level of competition online.
Chances are you might be bidding on too many high-costing ‘vanity’ keywords that looked good on paper, but are terrible at converting. The possibility of burning through your ad spend budget like a hot knife through butter is very high.
When you partner with us, we’ll create a proper sales funnel and AdWords campaign so your PPC investment is spent wisely.
If you have ever searched anything on Google, you may have noticed that some websites appear at the top of your search with the word “ad” beside them. This is because the owner of that website bought advertisement space with Google. Unfortunately, this is not a straightforward process as users must bid on keywords. Then, Google will choose websites to appear at the top of searches based on the quality and relevance of these keywords, the website’s content, and how much the advertiser is willing to bid. Essentially, using Google Ads is a type of auction and if you have never worked with them, it can be a confusing process. Fortunately, 12SM can help you navigate the process and set up Google Ads for your website.
Depending on the target region’s competition and desired growth, our monthly PPC retainer can range anywhere from $1,500 to $3,500 / monthly. Which includes full campaign audit, campaign setup and ongoing management. We do not charge initial setup fees like most PPC agencies.
We use measurable KPI metrics such as product sales, online leads, PDF downloads, and phone calls to measure your PPC marketing success.
