healthcare marketing tips for physicians at social media

Why should physicians claim their online presence

We get it! Some physicians aim to be instafamous, while others – literally- use an impossible-to-pronounce nickname for their accounts trying to make it hard to find.

While we support any of these two (2) online behaviors, in this blog we want to talk to the healthcare practitioner who finds themselves in the middle ground.

What middle ground? The spot where you are recognizable at social media, but you control what for!!!

As an MD, DO, Dentist, or Chiropractor you will have an online presence whether you like it or not. Your practice reputation is in this moment at the expense of pages like Yelp, Healthgrades, Doximity, RateMDs, Vitals, etc.

There are multiple pages publishing indexed lists of healthcare practitioners and their corresponding academic / professional information. Many of them provide space for patients to create reviews, share pictures and testimonials of your medical practice without your awareness.  

One of the best methods to reclaim your overall online presence is by creating a strong, intentional, and strategic social media presence. When you have a strong, SEO-optimized social media dedicated to your medical practice, you will position yourself higher at the search engine and will attract the right patients for your practice. Of course, we want to help!

The number of patients that search online for doctors has been continuously increasing. A study published in 2014 found that 85% of respondents said they would likely choose one doctor over another based on positive reviews found online.

The probability of a patient writing a positive review increase if patient found you over the internet, specially at your own social media.
