Healthcare Marketing and Keeping Schedule Full
Wouldn’t it be nice to partner with a healthcare marketing agency that understands that keeping your schedule full is your primary concern? We get it. Every decision is designed to make it easier to market your practice, increase “word of mouth” advertising, make you stand out against your competition, facilitate gaining new patients and and most importantly keep your schedule full.
Getting and Keeping Loyal Patients is the Whole Point of Healthcare Marketing
The most important aspect of healthcare marketing is turning your patients into happy advocates. They will gladly bring you more patients. You do that with the right internal systems. You use marketing systems that highlight your compassion, dedication and repeatedly show how valuable they are to you. It’s no longer good enough to just treat your patient or sell them their healthcare products. You have to earn their loyalty and repeat business through amazing customer service and care.
Why Impeccable Care and Customer Service is Critical For Healthcare Marketing
This is the first step to growing any business. Great service is built upon providing a level of care and customer service that delights and surpasses expectations. The healthcare industry is more personal than others and as a result you need to offer more personal service. Even if you offer great service, it’s always worth a second look. For example… How long does it take to get a call back? Do you send them birthday cards, etc? Make sure every interaction counts. You need to continually improve and optimize your customer service systems. The quality of care and service directly impacts your word of mouthing marketing.
Word of Mouth Has The Highest ROI for Healthcare Marketing
It goes without says that a personal recommendation from one of your delighted patients is the best way to get a new patient. But it isn’t free, and it has to be earned. It is frequently discounted as something that just happens. It doesn’t just happen. It’s a tool, and you have to use it. Are you asking your patients to recommend their colleagues, and their friends and family. Have you given them a reason to? Don’t let those recommendation opportunities go to your competition.
Stand Out From the Background Noise of Your Competition
In today’s market it’s no longer possible to just wait around for your schedule to fill. Your competition is fierce and their actively scheduling your potential patients. You need to actively engage multiple platforms to get your message out. You need to draft your current patients into recruiting for you. You do this by working on multiple marketing fronts. A few possibilities are your website, social media, doctor referrals, YouTube, print media, and speaking engagements. All of those give you an opportunity to talk about why you are different (your point of difference) than your competition and how that benefits them personally.

Attention Getter Guide
The Attention Getter adds an optional animation to the !mpactMEDIA Call-to-Action when it scrolls into view. This draws the eye of the visitor
and helps facilitate brand engagement. These animations are short, so they won't be annoy your visitor with long or incessant movement.
We've made it very easy to use this feature, just select the animation type you'd like from the select box. If you don't want it animated just set the select box to 'none'.
After changing the animation to see it in action just scroll the !M Call-to-Action off screen then back on. This is because it doesn't animation until it scrolls onto screen.
This animation shakes the !M Call-to-Action left and right for a couple seconds.
This animation bounces the !M Call-to-Action up and down for a couple seconds.
This animation makes the !M Call-to-Action beat or pulse in and out for a couple seconds.
The animations are placed in the !M Call-to-Action element container as shown below. The class choices shown within the [square brackets] will be
inserted based on the animation selection. If no animation is chosen none of the listed animation classes will be inserted into the element.
The !M Call-to-Action is set to .mpact-animated-pause and when it scrolls into view the pause class it removed and the class .mpact-animated-play is added.
Keep in mind these classes are always available and can be used on other elements if you want. Just place the classes into the class field of the new element as desired.
