As an online marketing consultant, specializing in the healthcare industry, I work with doctors and other healthcare professionals every day. One thing I hear more than anything else is (phrased in various ways): How can I get my traffic to my website?

It can be a challenge getting traffic to their websites. Often the competition can be very fierce, and as a result, more expensive to get the results they want and expect. But, all of the professionals that I choose to work with understand the value of SEO and the great potential that it has to take their business to the next level. For healthcare professionals, SEO & word of mouth (which happen to go hand in hand these days with the explosion of online reviews) are simply too important to ignore.

So, what does a dentist, a doctor, or other healthcare professional need to do to build his brand online? Great content? Ya. Social Media? Yes, that too. But it’s more than that. There is an opportunity to better educate your patients, whilst saving you time, and building your online authority, as well as creating a relationship with patients and potential patients by using your ‘online voice’.

Let’s go over 15 marketing strategies that can be implemented for a doctor or other healthcare provider in order to improve their online visibility, increase their search engine rankings, and ultimately grow their practice.

Just a quick note on #10:
Are you currently having people ?check-in? to your office when they arrive? A visitor can check in on Yelp, Foursquare, Facebook, and other networks.
Foursquare check ins are now done in Swarm, which is technically still Foursquare... but it could confuse people :)
