Internet Marketing for Doctors.

Nov 17, 2016

Ever sign up for anything online?  If you did, it was probably a result of a "call to action or CTA.

"Call to Action" is a marketing tool where an instruction is given to initiate an immediate response. There are examples of "Call to Action" everywhere; TV, radio and the Internet.

CTA marketing is very important to Healthcare and Medical Internet Marketing, too.

Listen to this episode of Russ & Randy Podcast to find out what your ultimate Call to Action is for your website. 

Read on.

Purpose of Your Website?

You have a website to grow our practice.  How does a Call to Action grow your practice (see below...)?

It's very simple, in order for you to grow your practice via your website, you need to have potential patients;

1.  Sign Up to your email subscription list
2.  Call to schedule an appointment

These are the two ways a website can grow a medical practice.  Building an email list and generating patient appointments are the only call to action examples you will need. 

A Call to Action simply invites your reader to complete 1 or 2 tasks which are the goals of your website.  They are simple reminders.

Other CTAs might include, but do not necessarily pertain to healthcare;

  • Buy now
  • Download Now
  • Talk to Us
  • Chat Now

Email List

Everyone in business should be building an email list.  Asking your potential patient to subscribe to your website via email allows you to;

  1. Educate them/provide value
  2. Increase your brand
  3. Update your patients with current practice news
  4. Most importantly - stay engaged with your patients

Placement of Call to Action

The Call to Action should be easy to find and obvious.

There is a special place on every website where your CTA should be placed.  Russ explains why this placement is so critical on both your desktop/laptop version of your site and on a mobile device.

Even on a mobile device, there should be ample room accommodate both an email CTA and a "call now" for an appointment.

Mobile Responsive Test

As we discuss, use to test your website on a particular smartphone or tablet.  This is much easier than manually searching your website on numerous phones and tablets.

And it's free.

Next time you go to a website, listen to the radio or watch TV - see if you can find the CTA!
