How do you decide where to spend your marketing dollars?
Now, that’s a loaded question, right? No doubt, those of us that own or manage healthcare clinics and organizations get repeatedly bombarded by firms and agencies that offer some kind of marketing service. Whether it be websites, social media, pay per click advertising, or traditional print and direct-mail advertising, marketing expenses add up quickly with very little effort. Still, a website is a pretty good place to get started. In this day and age, not having a website is as good as not existing. Most prospective patients use the internet to search for, research, and select healthcare providers.
So, the question is: what do you need to make a website successful? What features are nice to have vs. need to have? My guest this week, Corey Hiben and I have a discussion about website design, digital marketing, understanding the healthcare sales cycle, and direct-to-consumer marketing. Corey is an OT turned website designer and helps healthcare and fitness professionals get their digital marketing started through website design.
What we cover in this Episode:
- The importance of direct-to-consumer marketing for independent healthcare clinics
- Applying the Biopsychosocial Model to healthcare marketing & sales
- Getting prospective patients to access your Digital Front Door
- Lead Generating & Marketing for private practice clinics
- The importance of trust & building relationships with prospective patients
- The role of experience & engagement when marketing to new patients
- Using data to improve conversions through your website and digital assets
- How to achieve Better Outcomes for patients experiencing chronic pain
