Bariatric Website Development

By partnering with Glacial, you are working with the best website design services available, ensuring that your business stays ahead of the competition and continues to grow. Investing in a top-notch website design is an investment in the long-term success of your bariatric practice.

Branding and Design on Bariatric Websites

Does your website stand out from the competition?

The way that your website looks and feels is all about your practice's branding and design. Branding is an integral part of any successful website design.

Good branding means designing something that stands out from a sea of competitors. For your new website, it means creating a functional design that's not only beautiful, but functional and one of a kind.

Paid Search for Weight Loss Leads

Are you capturing high intent leads?

Brand awareness and being seen when a high intent lead is looking for your services is a key driver of additional revenue and patient volume.

A fundamental part of why PPC is so successful for so many bariatric practice's is our use of landing pages and optimizing for conversions. Landing pages involve creating a custom page for use in paid search and social media advertising campaigns.

These landing pages keep potential patients from getting distracted on other pages of your website and are very deliberately designed to increase conversions (in this case, form fills). These targeted pages usually include an engagement object, usually in the form of a self-test,  to keep the user's attention before capturing their contact information in a quick and concise way.

SEO for Bariatric Surgery Procedures

Can patients find your website online?

What's the point of having an award winning bariatric website design if it's not going to be found in search engines? SEO (known as search engine optimization) uses on-page, off-page, and Local SEO tactics to help increase rankings and ensure you are at the top of search results.

On-page optimization for a bariatric website refers to making sure the technical aspects of your website are in order, and optimizing the content and meta data around the patient search queries related to the services and geographic area your business serves.

Local SEO is another crucial component, which refers to business profiles in map results on search engines. Winning in the map pack is one of the top ways a local area bariatric clinic can drive traffic and increase patient bookings.

Content Marketing for Gastric Clinics

Are you providing helpful information?

At its core, content marketing is about creating content, though the focus is typically on web copy and blogs. Content should be educational and informational and something that patients can understand, no matter what level of schooling they've completed.

FAQ style content is the easiest way to achieve this, with the goal being content that answers questions like: What is Peyronie’s Disease? What causes UTI's? Am I a good candidate for ED treatment? Within the content, these questions, at the very minimum should be answered in full to avoid patients feeling like they've been duped or taken advantage of in any way.

Besides creating website copy, blogs are another excellent way to support your website. Blogs are not only a great way to answer questions, but they are also a fantastic way to consistently add high-quality content to your website.

This is the kind of activity that Google takes notice of. If your practice is consistently creating high-quality content in the form of blogs, it can help with rankings.

It can also help these blogs posts potentially rank on their own if they are answering something that Google considers to be highly-authoritative. The more authoritative content a website produces, the more authoritative that practice starts to look to Google over time.

Engagement Objects on Bariatric Websites

Are patients interacting with your website?

Do you want a website that outperforms the competition? One way to stand out is by creating a website that features educational engagement objects for your patients.

Engagement objects are things like self-tests or symptom simulators that invite visitors to interact with your website and learn in the process. Self evaluation tests both educate users, and act as a funnel to collect information about the potential patient so practices can contact them and begin their consultation process.

Other important engagement objects your website should have include CTAs like online scheduling and click to call. Engaging with a practice should always be as easy as possible, whether the user is on mobile or desktop. Concise call to actions make it simple for a patient to reach out to the practice the moment they decide to. Medical websites also benefit from videos that show a more personal side of a practice and email collection to bolster existing email marketing efforts.

Reputation Management for Weight Loss Surgeons

Do you show testimonials on your website?

Social proof is a powerful force when it comes to attracting new patients. Many patients determine a first impression of your practice before they even step foot in the door, so collecting and displaying reviews has never been more important.

Software for online reputation management and engaging in review response have become valuable tools, and almost all bariatric practices are now utilizing these both on their website and in their overall digital marketing strategy.

Online Scheduling and Lead Management for Bariatric Providers

Can a patient book an appointment on your website?

Once your practice has potential new leads, do you have a way to collect lead information? With tools like MDprospects and Appointec it's never been easier. Patients want the ability to schedule appointments on their time, and with real time appointment scheduling, you can reduce the chance of double booking.

MDprospects gives you the option to schedule directly through a simple-to-use form that feeds into your database of leads. MDprospects also gives you the greatest control over leads from consult to surgery, allowing you to continue keeping your leads warm and eventually turn them into patients.

Appointec takes scheduling one step further by offering an easy and convenient way for patients to schedule appointments. Appointec integrates with your practice management system, allowing your patients to see real-time appointment availability and the convenience of booking appointments when it's most convenient for them.

From start to finish, the team at Glacial Multimedia was attentive, professional, and highly skilled. They took the time to understand my unique needs and goals, and worked closely with me to create a website that accurately reflects my practice and expertise.

Common Bariatric Surgery Website Design Questions:

The cost of a bariatric surgeon website design can vary based on several different factors, such as complexity, number of pages, functionalities and customization. Generally speaking, basic websites usually start around a few thousand dollars while more complex custom designs can cost tens of thousands or even more.

When planning the budget for your new website, it’s important to take into account not just the price but also who will be the owner once it is built: you or another party? Additionally, make sure you know if your website is being built with an open source platform or proprietary software; this could potentially limit your ability to move and update the site in case you ever need to do so.

For these reasons it’s very important that when spending thousands of dollars on a web design project you read all terms carefully and ensure that you will be its final owner when complete.

Building a website for an bariatric surgery provider can be a complex and time-consuming process. At Glacial, we work to ensure the development process is as efficient and straightforward as possible. Our standard design process consists of four phases that typically take three to six months to complete, depending on the complexity of the website, customer needs, availability of all parties involved in the project, and any customizations requested.

If you’re looking to build an bariatric website, there are four main phases that can help you get the results you desire. Each step is essential for delivering a high-quality product and making sure your website meets all of your expectations. From initial planning to post-launch maintenance, each phase helps ensure that your website reaches its full potential.

  1. Discovery
  2. Design
  3. Coding
  4. Final Edits

  1. Take a look at competitors’ websites. Find out what’s already out there and take note of the design elements you like and don’t like. Also this research will ensure that your website does not end up looking identical to another in the same industry.
  2. Check other medical websites for inspiration too! Have some fun with it and explore sites in different verticals – you may find unique features or designs that will work well on a weight loss surgeon site as well.
  3. Talk to web designers who specialize in bariatric website development. These experts can provide helpful insights, suggest creative solutions, and guide you throughout the whole process from start to finish.

  1. Usability: A website should be easy to use and comprehend, allowing visitors to find the information they need quickly and without difficulty; particularly when looking for ways of contacting your practice or scheduling an appointment online.
  2. Aesthetics: The branding should be aesthetically pleasing, with cohesive design elements such as color, typography and imagery creating an attractive overall look that encourages exploration and interaction.
  3. Branding: A brand encompasses both visual aspects as well as what people perceive about your practice’s values – having a strong verbal brand coupled with a distinctive website design is the fastest way to indicate quality care to patients.
  4. Functionality: Designing with users in mind, websites should be responsive so that pages load quickly across all devices, while buttons, links and navigation menus must work properly too!
  5. Content: Website content ought to be clear-cut, concise yet factual; written at no higher than a fifth grade reading level for best results!
  6. Search Engine Optimization (SEO): To ensure potential customers can easily locate it online through search engines like Google or Bing; SEO optimization is necessary on any website build! Where’s the best place for hiding one? Page two of course!
  7. Accessibility: Websites must also remain accessible for disabled users or those using assistive technology – keyboard navigation along with appropriate content structure plus colour contrast are integral components in adhering to web accessibility guidelines set by organizations like WCAG 2+ AA/AAA standards).
  8. Call to Action (CTA): Clickable ‘call’ buttons alongside online scheduling options plus important announcements or ‘Contact Us/Learn More’ call outs should all appear visibly in strategic positions designed to lead visitors towards taking desired actions effectively
