Medical Content Marketing
Build barriers against competition and commoditization by becoming your patients anchor of expertise.
Content Creation & Marketing
Content isn’t just a department within marketing; it’s the emotional and information bridge between patients and revenue. Critical to the success of your medical online marketing is the quality of your website content. The longer you keep potential patients on your site, you more increase chances that they’ll end up calling you for an appointment.
The Impact of Content
Our full-service SEO team integrates content into a complex strategy to increase your site’s visibility, raise your rankings and build your patient base.
Your current clientele and potential patients have questions. They want to learn:
- What their symptoms mean
- More about medical conditions that match those symptoms
- Best practices in your specialty, including diagnostic procedures
- Your treatment options for dealing with their symptoms and conditions
- How your practice differs from the doctor down the street
To get these answers, they look online more often than not. In fact, according to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, from July 2015 to July 2016, nearly 80 percent of all Internet users, about 93 million people in the United States, looked up a medical condition online.
