Neurosurgery Marketing Ideas and Strategies
It all starts with getting on Google.
Don’t get it twisted. We’re not referring to just having a website.
That will come in later.
What we are talking about is the best free way to get traffic on Google and almost immediately.
Introducing, GMB or Google My Business.
This little free service allows you to do just that and more.
In fact, this where we want your clinic to show up:
See where that neurology clinic show up? Right on the first page when someone searches for it.
This is where you should be.
So how do you do it?
Just upload your information on GMB for free and you should be set. It’s actually free because Google wants it’s users to find accurate local results.
So simply add your address, the name of your neurology practice, along with some high quality pictures and you’re set.
This single service will allow you to start receiving patients almost immediately.
So once you get this going, what’s next?
Advertising a neurosurgery clinic requires the same type care and precision that you do when you are dealing with your patients.
If you don’t market properly, you won’t get the results and if you go to fast, you might incur penalties that can even ban you from popular platofrms like Google, Facebook and others.
Just like Neurosurgery, marketing a neurosurgery practice or clinic requires delicate yet determined work.
So how does it all work.
Let’s start with step one and that is someone looking for your clinic by name on Google.
When a potential neurosurgeon patient goes on Google and searches for ‘neurosurgeon clinic’ online, they get these results.
If you show up here, you’ll be getting patients all the time. Getting here is the challenege and that’s what SEO is all about. SEO is more of a long term strategy and we don’t encourage you to focus on it now.
However, it’s something you should keep in the back of your mind for now or at the very least, have your website up and running.
If you already have a website, don’t forget to add it to Google My Business (First step) so you can start to create some credibility in Google.
