Patient’s Guide Sees Surge in Delivery Speeds by +75%, Monetization per Lead by +50%, Reduces Client Onboarding Time by 400% with CAKE Implementation
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – June 12, 2015 – Accelerize (OTCQB: ACLZ) (OTCBB: ACLZ) and its digital marketing software division CAKE, today announced that Patient’s Guide, a leading performance marketing and lead generation network in healthcare, is using CAKE to track, attribute and optimize lead-generation campaigns for its growing client base. After implementing the CAKE SaaS solution as its primary marketing performance platform, the Patient’s Guide is driving improvements in time to value, improving the patient and client experience, as well as making strides to consistently match lead buyers with the sellers who deliver the best results.
With over two million monthly visitors and 20,000 connected patients monthly, Patient’s Guide helps medical practitioners, pharmaceutical and medical device companies reach their ideal customer at the opportune moment. Prior to using CAKE, the organization’s lead generation program was partly programmatic but largely a manual process. From routing leads to accounting, this method required substantial human resources. In addition, after onboarding a client, Patient’s Guide required up to five days to build out code to connect its system to their API for lead transmission. After implementing CAKE, that process is completely automated. Not only did it streamline the entire flow – from the moment the lead is generated to the reporting dashboard – it minimized errors and provided greater capability to monetize each lead.
“CAKE has transformed our lead generation program,” said Jasson Gilmore, CEO of Patient’s Guide. “The marketing platform has allowed us to streamline our process to deliver quality leads, while also significantly reducing our costs and management time regarding logistics and reporting. As a result, we can focus on other vital aspects of our business – provide a better service, dedicate more time to our clients and ultimately, increase profitability. It’s hard to imagine working without CAKE.”
Marketers in the US healthcare and pharmaceutical industry will invest $1.64 billion in digital advertising in 2015. By 2019, eMarketer expects total digital spending will reach $2.55 billion. New products and more sophisticated data targeting are fueling growth, especially in mobile, video and native formats.
“Healthcare is a rapidly growing segment for digital marketing,” said Santi Pierini, CAKE President and Chief Operating Officer of Accelerize. “And as the demand for data-driven insight continues its upward growth trajectory, performance marketing is steadily becoming integral to the overall media mix. Enterprises across all industries, including healthcare organizations such as Patient’s Guide, trust CAKE to accurately track the performance of their digital marketing dollars. Patient’s Guide user base is growing at an incredible rate and we are pleased that CAKE is helping uplift its lead generation program to the next level.”
