It takes about 50 milliseconds (that's 0.05 seconds) for users to form an opinion about your site, that determines whether they like your site or not, whether they'll stay or leave.

We provide custom-tailored solutions and invite each client to become an active participant in the website design process.

Of users expect a maximum of a 2 second load time for an average website
One basic second of delay in load time can result in a 7% loss in retention. It is safe to say that speed is incredibly important. There are actually 2 main reasons that speed is important and moreover why we are talking about it.
First, as we have previously mentioned, speed is important for the user experience. The user experience is vital for everything done with medical internet marketing and patient acquisition. If the visitor aborts the visit because the site won’t load, then there’s no chance at conversion. It does not matter if you have a beautiful site if load speed is not considered.
Glacial's development team is not only skilled at fixing load speed issues, but also in building sites with speed in mind at the beginning of the design process to avoid this issue. If your website load speed is slow, please call us and we will provide a free consultation on the issues.
Part of the reason doctors choose Glacial Multimedia to be their webmaster and build their websites is because of our 20+ years of experience. We understand the technical and medical components of making a high performing, and secure medical website.

For over 20 years, we have been studying patient habits on medical websites. We have reviewed Google Analytics, Google Webmaster tools, SEO audits, dashboard programs and more. The result is we have created a system that works to acquire patients for our practices. Good marketing, tracking results, tracking patient conversions, working with internal staff, solving bottlenecks, using CRM systems and flushing out ROI is what doctors expect of us and we aim to deliver results.
Our journey began years ago but by 2007 doctors kept asking us more about lead generation and conversion to surgery. It was less about things like bounce rate and general analytics questions. They wanted to know if their marketing was working. At the time, we did not have the answer. Now we do.
We created a lead tracking CRM system known now as MDprospects. This system enabled us to perform marketing automation on cold leads, track conversion to surgery and measure media source to surgery.
Practices loved it and continue to love it today. Recently with changing times we have been hit with more lead to consult bottlenecks than ever before. Working directly with practices to move more people to consults and appointments has been a big initiative. If you are experiencing a lead to consult bottleneck, please feel free to call us and we can explain how we collectively handle this.
