Free Pregnancy Test campaign

DON’T BE SCARED, BE SURE

Pregnancy can be one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life, but it can also be one of the most confusing, frightening and stressful. San Antonio’s Methodist Healthcare System had established multiple Family Health Centers across the city to provide potentially pregnant women with access to confidential, non-judgmental, FREE healthcare and information services. However, in order to learn about these services, women had to scour the net for information, looking far beyond the first page of the typical search engine results list or hospital system homepage.

Seeking a complete and effective solution to this gap in patients and resources, Methodist Healthcare System called upon esd’s comprehensive marketing services.

create the information destination

esd tackled the situation with the long term results in mind. We began by building www.SAFreePregnancyTest.com, an independent, micro-website designed to educate potentially expectant mothers about the early stages of pregnancy in an organized, single-page format. By structuring the information this way, we created a page that was specific, focused and information-rich ie pre-optimized for online searchability.

and point the way there

No matter how impressive your website or micro-website, if no one can find it, it’s worse than useless: it’s a bottom-line assassin. esd refused to let Methodist Healthcare System’s new site go unnoticed. After testing and retesting a rotating roster of keywords and phrases, we implemented year-long search engine optimization (SEO) and search engine marketing (SEM) campaigns.

coming out on top

While our SEO efforts were rewarded by our information-rich page design and the Googling priorities of our target audience, our SEM contributed to the site’s overall success, proactively reaching out to young women while they browsed the web. At the end of the campaign’s 2010 run, and grew the Family Health Centers’ new patient list an average of 7%. Now,  www.SAFreePregnancyTest.com consistently tops search engine results pages compassionately encouraging potentially pregnant women to be sure, not scared.

Meet Our Intern Madison! "As an intern at esd I was welcomed with my first real office work environment. I was able to use what I have learned in my courses at school and put them into real world projects. Networking, filming and editing for our big name clients has really helped me fill out my film reel and resume. Using new equipment and software outside the classroom has been a real perk of this internship. I have been taken in by all parts of the esd team, helping across all departments for projects, and learning things from everyone and their jobs at esd. Gaining as much knowledge and more skills to make me more well versed in my field. After college, I am looking forward to working on more video productions for film in Austin and making a name for myself as a director."
