Have you started to create an email address list of your patients and your Internet followers?  How do you use this list to best connect with your followers and patients?  An easy and effective way to take advantage of your email list is to automatically notify your subscribers of new content on your website.  In essence, they receive an email newsletter containing a link to your new article on your website.  This can be automatically set up requiring no extra work on your part.  There are so many advantages!

Russ and I talk about the importance of writing to your patient persona.  What is your patient persona? The patient persona is your perfect patient, or your avatar.  When writing to your patient persona, your writing becomes more directed, engaging and valuable.  As physicians, we must remember we are not writing to the world, but just one patient at a time.

The three most important pages of your website are the Home, About and Contact pages.  Each has an important function in the process of patient engagement.  The Home page gives you the opportunity to convey what services your provide.  The About page should convey personal and business information and Contact page, perhaps the Call-to-Action to allow your next patient to contact you and make an appointment.

Wordpress is the most popular CMS (content management system) in the world for your website...and without exception. There are two versions.  We are really only discussing the advantages of Wordpress.org.  (The Wordpress.com version has too many limitations and we do not recommend this platform at all.)  Wordpress is cheap, easy to use, the best for SEO and provides turn-key themes which can be customized.

There are only 3 types of websites.  Static websites, those which rarely get updated, function as online business cards and are known only to your existing patients.  Static sites have no marketing value because they will not get ranked by Google.  Dynamic sites, those with fresh content, have marketing value because they can get ranked.  Dynamic and interactive sites, those with fresh content and which allow comments to be asked have marketing value and are most likely to engage and convert your next patient.
