Knowing how to communicate your medical business or practice your key points of difference is paramount to a growing a successful medical business! Just how you differentiate yourself in the eyes of your customers is key!

While there are a myriad of marketing activities that you can undertake to grow your business, setting a comprehensive medical marketing strategy before undertaking your marketing activities will ensure that they are in-line with target markets, your business goals, and are realistic in terms of delivering leads that will turn into sales.

The ability to think strategically about your business is very different to planning day-to-day activities. Your marketing strategy is the overall guide as to what you are trying to achieve – your goals – and your marketing plan is the more detailed translation into what exactly you are going to do to deliver your business goals.Medical Marketing Strategy

The short answer is yes. Hospital marketing shouldn’t look too different from other methods of marketing, yet there are streams that are more effective than others.

If we had a prescription for hospital marketing it would be something like:

Take a business unit (i.e. maternity) as a patient. One does traditional marketing, one does digital marketing, another public relations, and someone undertakes word of mouth. Review regularly.

We need to always remember that marketing is not set and forget and that hospitals in particular can find many PR and word of mouth opportunities. One of the first steps to determining the right marketing for your hospital is to develop an overarching corporate strategy as well as individual business unit strategies due to the different natures and features of each of the areas of the business and how they need to be dealt with.

If we look at maternity, mental health and surgical – they are unique “products” with completely different target segments so the marketing messages and marketing mediums need to match appropriately. Your strategy should take into consideration an integrated approach to your hospital marketing and it shows how both digital, traditional marketing, public relations and word of mouth can work together. A strategy will help you determine what is important for your hospital from a corporate and individual business unit view point for both short term and long term.

A key form of hospital marketing lies in ‘word of mouth’ marketing. To ensure a positive review from patients, hospitals need to offer a great experience. People are more likely to complain than to give praise, particularly when it relates to an experience they have had. What you offer in your services and the delivery of your services is as great a form of marketing as any. Starting from here for hospital marketing will see you ahead of the competition; putting you in a better position for establishing your medical marketing strategy.



He's making a list, he's checking it twice.......

Referrals are key to a successful medical business so it makes good sense to monitor our referrer's patterns. But it often doesn't happen, and the first realisation that referral has dropped is when the accountant advises of a drop in revenue at the end of the financial year.

It's easy to prevent this by making it a monthly habit to monitor your referrals. Most practice management software provides reports on referrers. Schedule time each month to pull reports and check on changes in your referrer patterns. You will quickly identify who has dropped off, who has increased and who is new.   

Then take action. Strengthen the relationship by getting in touch. Make a call, send a note or schedule a visit.  Retaining and strengthening a referrer is much easier than gaining a new referrer.

Follow Santa's tip. Christmas is the ideal time to add more to your professional relationships with your referrers. A card or a gift with wishes for the season lets them know you recognise and value them and sets up a continuation of the relationship in the year ahead.
