"81% of U.S. adults use the internet and 59% say they have looked online for health information in the past year. 35% of U.S. adults say they have gone online specifically to try to figure out what medical condition they or someone else might have."
2013 Pew Internet - Health Online Report
Everything we do online is being integrated and intermeshed into a unified platform that can drive traffic, generate leads and patients, and encourage high-value brand interactions. Social Media Optimization (SMO) is the term that was coined by Rohit Bhargava and has since been taking on a life of its own. Many medical practices have been interested in how social networks or social media websites can help their practice gain notoriety. Glacial Multimedia Inc. takes a custom approach to Social Media Optimization for our practices.
Despite the fact that social media is now a prominent force in everyone's daily lives, there still seems to be a lot of confusion associated with the concept of social media maintenance. Maintaining social media sites requires a lot more attention than just posting an article or a photo every once in a while to a Facebook or Twitter page. To make sure a social media site is working properly for your practice you must monitor it daily and post engaging content on a regular basis that will ensure followers keep coming back - and eventually turn into leads for your practice. Here at Glacial Multimedia, our Social Media Department works on a variety of different levels when it comes to properly maintaining clients' social media sites.
Although we are well known for creating great websites our core strength resides in lead generation for our clients. A solid grasp of Internet marketing and the orchestration of a marketing mix strategy enables a perfect storm of engagement for our clients. Our digital inbound marketing strategy has proven successful for many of our medical clients.
Inbound marketing is promoting your company or practice through a series of digital media in a very educational way. Examples of inbound marketing include blogging, video distribution, youtube channels, white paper reports, e-newsletters, social media marketing and more. This type of publishing marketing differs from traditional marketing and cold calling because inbound marketing is designed to bring customers in to ask questions instead of interrupting and broadcasting. Inbound marketing techniques are used to reach customers at varying levels in their decision making process to educate and assist with reaching the best purchasing decision. Today’s buyers do a lot more research, read reviews and listen to what friends have to say.
Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising can guarantee your website appears on the first page of results for every applicable keyword search on Google, Yahoo! and Bing. To achieve the highest position, you bid against other advertisers for the same set of keywords or phrases. Careful planning and execution is necessary to manage budgets, optimize cost per click (CPC), and maximize site traffic and conversion rates. After years of experience in Paid Search Marketing we have achieved success in using this as one of the top lead generating services for our clients.
We manage PPC keyword advertising campaigns to be used in tandem with custom designed landing pages with calls to action or main websites. Our keyword lists are custom developed based and matched according to targeted traffic. All traffic is tracked and reported on a monthly basis and delivered to clients by report via e-mail. Our Google Adwords and Bing Search Marketing PPC advertising campaigns are derived from extensive research based around competitive analysis and optimum keywords. The ultimate objective is to increase targeted traffic that will result in more business for our clients. Prior to starting this specific project we work carefully to plan a list of goals in order to maximize the success of your campaign.
Glacial Multimedia can be your Internet marketing quarterback! With over 15 years of Internet marketing planning experience our top consultants can develop customized game plan that will generate leads for your practice. After reviewing your marketplace and doing an Internet presence SWOT analysis we start to carefully choose the media that will be rolled out in the BLITZ package.
Looking for doctors has never been easier than it is today. In the old days, you had to look in the yellow pages to find a eye care practitioner near you, and there was no way to know what kind of service they offered. You had to choose whatever was closest and easiest. Now, the Internet offers you a number of ways to not only find eye doctors online, but to find out more information about them.
From various amounts of research we are able to ascertain that patients are now researching significant amounts of health care information online. By the end of 2011 over 83.2% of the baby boomer population was using the web to find health care information. So whether you are treating young or older patients you can bet they will be using the web to not only find physicians but to also research a particular health issue. According to Pew Internet and American Life Research Projects, 40% of e-Patients with chronic conditions say they or someone they know has been significantly helped by following online medical advice. Additionally 46% of Internet users interviewed say they will use the web the next time they have a medical inquiry.
Glacial Multimedia was the very first ophthalmology website design company to benchmark over 100 practices and can provide critical benchmarking data for practices hoping to understand what all this data actually means to their business.
Glacial Multimedia takes a hands on approach with website analytics offering both hosting control panel data and Google Analytics data. Every Glacial Multimedia customer gets Google analytics automatically installed.
Understanding your medical website visitors is vital in running a successful website. Knowing where your visitors came from, what they are looking for, and how easy or difficult it was for them to find what they were looking for is very important in maximizing your website’s potential. This key information can allow you to guide visitors to education or service areas they might not have otherwise found. Google Analytics is particularly useful understanding how your search engine optimization is working by identifying popular keywords and traffic volumes from particular engines.
We believe in sharing information. We believe in education. We believe in enlightenment. We believe in evolution.
