Big Buzz’s Approach

Big Buzz began with research, surveying residents, family members and internal team members at the organization. Data related to why Bartley Healthcare was chosen, what stood out most about the organization and where the target audience sought out related information was uncovered in order to create an effective marketing plan.


From that research, Big Buzz crafted a brand strategy for the organization that would articulate what made Bartley Healthcare superior and unique in senior care, using uniform language and key phrases to ensure consistency across all marketing efforts. The brand strategy consisted of developing brand messaging, creating a mood board, implementing website updates and applying the refreshed brand design across new marketing materials. Those materials included social media advertisements, website popups, newspaper ads, flyers, and more.

Create, Implement and Optimize

Big Buzz used the survey data not only to create the brand strategy, but also to identify which marketing tactics would most effectively help Bartley Healthcare reach its goal. The results identified a multi-pronged marketing approach which included search engine optimization (SEO), a referral program, online advertisements, newspaper advertisements and a content marketing strategy. Big Buzz helped restructure the website to improve search engine result rankings using proven methods designed to cater to the complex and demanding algorithms of major platforms like Google and Bing. Online advertisements were created and optimized by Big Buzz’s analytics expert using data-driven targeting to focus on the exact audience the organization wished to attract. The agency then used its proprietary Target Persona process to distill this audience into an individual identity towards whom content marketing would be directed, using topics that both addressed the persona’s fears and concerns while positioning Bartley Healthcare as a thought leader in senior care.
