Understanding Target Audience Insight

Facebook Ads is a useful tool that allows therapists to customize their targeting based on demographic, behavior and interests, helping you tailor your ads to suit your services. However, to get more specific information, you need a specific strategy. Here are some methods that I can suggest.

Understanding Target Audience Insight

  • Predict Customer Files and Run Test Ads. To find potential clients on Facebook Ads For Therapists, try running some low-budget ad campaigns to gather data. The main goal is to get a basic overview of the client file. For example, young adults need more psychological therapy services, treatment for depression, or career counseling, while older people have a demand for physical therapy and functional recovery. Experiment to identify the most suitable audience for your product.
  • Join And Interact In Facebook Groups. Search for keywords related to therapy and your services, then join groups and interact with the community. You can use the tool AdTargeting to search for keywords, and the results will provide information about customer files and related Facebook groups. The more you interact with them, the better you understand them and propose helpful solutions.

Real-life Example Of Running Facebook Ads For Therapists

Approaching me with less-than-optimistic business results, Kristen Joey, the CEO of Mallone Therapy based in Oklahoma, hired our agency’s account to run conversion ads for aromatherapy products from November 2023 until now.

In 2023, his business mainly ran lead ads, along with some A/B tests and brand awareness campaigns to expand into new markets, resulting in surprisingly impressive outcomes. Take a look at the ads report Kristen shared with me below:

Just three months after reaching out to me, Mallone’s lead generation increased by over 11 times, CPL decreased from $7.4 to $4.16, saving half of the expenses.

Despite a slow start with no results in the early days, he ran trials just to collect customer files and didn’t optimize the initial lead campaigns. 

Later on, he decided to increase the budget and launch a Christmas promotion precisely when spending needs were highest, with a peak of 300 leads on December 22. During this period, I provided marketing strategies, targeting guidance, and advertising optimization, resulting in consistent daily leads of over 60, along with 20 conversions. Finally, he reduced the budget and maintained successful advertising with 40 leads per day until now.

Choosing Appropriate Ad Templates

In my opinion, Facebook Ads For Therapists align best with video and image formats. This is an opportunity to leverage the power of visuals and effectively communicate with your patients.

Choosing Appropriate Ad Templates

Choosing Appropriate Ad Templates

The advantages of images and videos lie in their ability to convey clear, visual, memorable information, aiding in emotional communication and creating the strongest impression. Therefore, use images or videos capturing your clinic or the therapeutic process, or utilize instructional therapy at home as resources for your ads. Additionally, share customer stories to provide a sense of closeness and higher authenticity to your advertising.

Finally, choose the platforms where your ads will appear. Avoid selecting too many to prevent overwhelming advertising, which might make customers uncomfortable if they don’t have specific needs. Instead, diversify your location choices from newsfeed to stories, reels, in-video, and on the right column.
