Ideas on how to market your practice

There are many options out there on how to market a medical practice. It can be helpful to have those options narrowed down and simplified to determine which strategies might be the best focus for your practice. This article provides some ideas: 17 Ideas to Market Your Practice

Here are some key takeaways:

Evaluate your website design

  • Ensure easy navigation, clear organization, and a clean simple user interface and design. Patients don’t want to work to find information or how to schedule an appointment. The goal is to make the process as frictionless as possible to get the patient through the door

Search engine optimization

  • SEO techniques relate to using key words relevant to your practice, to maximize the change you will be at the top of search results. Keys to SEO are the content, and regularly posting on your website (new content improves page rank results)

Create and update Google business page

  • Add photos, keep business hours up to date, incentivize reviews from patients

Where to advertise

  • Google Ads
  • Facebook Ads
    • “Remarketing” ads (ads for individuals who have already visited a website) are most effective on Facebook
    • Cold audience ads (ads for individuals who have engaged in content with similar interests as your practice) are also effective
  • Offline options including newspapers, billboards, and local TV or radio commercials
  • Get listed in online directories including Yelp, Yahoo! Local, etc. A quick note – you should not respond to online reviews, because this may be seen as compromising patient privacy (even though they posted the review themselves).

Providing patient platforms

  • Giving patients some control with appointment options, more payment options and checking prescription status
  • Email/SMS marketing lets you keep in touch with patients to provide updates, reminders, special offers and general information for patients
  • If you are deciding on an EHR that helps you do this, check out the EHR guide on our website! 

Passing out branded freebies

  • Pens, notebooks, magnets. Who doesn’t love free stuff?

Tracking marketing efforts

  • Look at data surrounding patient acquisition cost, conversion rates, search engine rankings, and customer retention to see what needs to be adjusted for your practice to be more successful. Marketing is an exercise in which you continue tweaking campaigns to find the right recipe, there is no one strategy to rule them all.

What Our Providers Have To Say...

Joining MedcoShare has been a true dream for a first time business owner like myself. Having the peace of mind of a consistent overhead month to month, while also having the freedom to sign up for as much or as little time as I need, has provided a wonderful combination of flexibility and simplicity.

The facilities at MedCoShare are clean, professional, and what you would expect from a high-quality medical office. My patients agree, commenting frequently on how nice the office space is. I have had the opportunity to interact with many members of the MedCoShare team... They will do what they can to help your practice grow and minimize the headaches of leasing medical office space.

Overall, if you're a physician interested in starting or growing your practice, I highly recommend MedCoShare. They take care of the administrative tasks, offer flexibility in office hours, and have a supportive and responsive staff. They have truly been instrumental in my journey, and I'm confident they will be for you too.

We joined MedCoShare about a year ago and I can say with great confidence that's it's been a great experience for us so far. It's been exciting to enter the Philadelphia market. Patient feedback has been positive. There's an easy check-in process, wait times have been minimal to non-existent, and the lobby has a medspa type of vibe. We look forward to growing with MedCoShare.

The MedCoShare team has been very responsive and easy to work with when my schedule changes.  When my clients arrive, they feel safe, comfortable, and the aesthetics have an excellent image for my business.  I don't have to worry about maintaining the facilities and can focus on my equipment and patients.

Being a new small business owner in the midst of a pandemic, MedCoShare has been a blessing.  Where else could I start a business, build clients, and have a flexible membership with no long-term commitments for peace of mind during the uncertainty?!  If business speeds up or slows down then I can adjust my membership accordingly.
