If you're subscribed to this podcast, it's a fair bet you're a business owner.

So, question for you: if you knew for sure something was a complete waste-of-money, would you continue to spend on it?

It defies logic, but that's exactly what 99% of treatment marketers who advertise on social media are doing.

This week's guest is Jan Roos, whose official title around the halls of Admit Scout is VP of Marketing.

  • The reason the two primary social strategies treatment marketers are using don't work to generate admits

  • A breakdown of some real treatment ads we've seen on Facebook, complete with an explanation for why they probably don't work

  • The only metric that matters when you're marketing your treatment center
