Digital marketing for clinics and medical centers these days is not a choice but is a necessity – in light of the rapidly increasing number of Internet users. According to Google statistics, 77% of patients search online for a clinic or doctor before actually visiting them! The percentage is really large and requires thinking, do you want your name as a doctor or the name of your clinic to have a good online presence that it attracts patients or will you accept to be present unprofessionally and patients can’t find anything useful about you online? Of course, professional presence is the smart choice.
How Bad Marketing Can Harm Your Clinic?
You may think that all marketing and advertising are equal in quality, efficiency, and effectiveness, but this is not true. There is digital marketing that correctly accomplishes your marketing goals and connects you with the right audience and increases the flow of patients to the clinic. On the other hand, you have bad marketing strategies that don’t achieve any goals or harm your business. For example, suppose a patient searches for your name on Google and only finds the addresses of the clinic, in most cases, he will search for other doctors for comparison, but if he searches for your name and finds articles, videos, a complete data page, and high-quality photographs, then he will be more likely choose your clinic. So, it is not to be present online, but you should have a good online presence!
What Is the Right Method for Good Online Marketing for Clinics?
According to the recommendations of Google and the opinions of patients, when they search for you on Google and Facebook, the presence of a page in your name on Facebook or your data on Google does not affect them, but there are three main factors.
The first factor: the presence of high-quality visual content in the form of videos, photographs, and good designs. Video is the most powerful advertising tool ever and provides the best possible communication with the potential customer. So shooting videos for the clinic and putting them on the Internet with correct content and professional photography leads to great results. But watch out for the opposite results that may occur if the videos are poor or underrepresented with quality of medical service.
The second factor: the presence of written content that reflects the doctor’s experience and knowledge in the form of medical articles that answer the patient’s questions and reassure him. Articles here achieve an important goal and provide organic results in search engines without ads. High-quality medical articles make you gain the confidence of the patient when he finds that you have the answer to his question, and provides access to potential patients.
The third factor: Correct targeting of content and ads, and targeting is a term that simply means making the right content and delivering it to the right audience. You should not create poor content and deliver it to the right audience; this is not a correct targeting – nor create good content and deliver it to the wrong audience. But targeting is writing, photographing, and designing content in a way that the audience understands, and to communicate this content to the public in an influential way.
