Posting regularly to your practice blog can help keep patients informed about the latest procedures, allow you to share insights about the industry, and help you develop a professional online presence.
If you want to attract high-quality traffic, there are some specific things you can do when creating your blog posts. Here are some essential tips for maintaining a professional blog for your practice:
Start by looking at the traffic logs of your website. You?ll soon discover dozens of keywords or key phrases that people have used to get there. This data can help you create more content based on what people are already searching for. The more content you have in these areas, the better your chances of achieving a higher ranking on the major search engines. Narrow down your list of keywords to about 15 to 20 when you begin blogging, and start writing blog posts around these topics or phrases.
Make sure you narrow down your focus to practice-specific procedures, treatments and services. Write a blog post about just a single procedure or treatment, rather than a general post that features more than a handful of treatments. Narrowing down your focus to a single topic offers SEO benefits, and also makes it easier for the patient to learn something new. More >
Twitter is a micro-blogging tool, one of several social media applications that makes it easier than ever to communicate with prospective patients, other doctors and industry professionals.
The growth of Twitter in the past few years has enabled thousands of businesses to tap into a whole new pool of prospects. When you start using Twitter to market your practice online, you can start attracting a steady stream of new clients and prospects – without paying a penny.
Here are just six reasons to use Twitter to market your practice online:
1. Increase visibility. You may have an attractive practice website, and are posting to a blog on a regular basis, but you can generate even more interest from tech-savvy patients and potential clients with a Twitter presence and profile. Increase your online visibility by setting up a professional Twitter profile, and post updates about your practice’s treatments, industry news, or links to your blog posts so that more patients can find you.
2. Announce special offers and discounts. If you need to generate more business during a slow period, you can send out a Twitter-only special to attract more patients. You can post a special link to an offer page on your website, or introduce a discount code that patients must use when they contact your practice for a consultation. More >
