Create an everlasting first impression through a well-planned intake process that is complimented by customer service and a seamless journey for your new patient. You can ask past clients for feedback on your intake process to help manufacture this process over time, but spend a lot of time at this stage in your operations, it is bound to pay off in the long run.
In the 2023 local ranking factors, many experts believe garnering a cohesive process for consistently gathering reviews will send the right signals to Google. Creating a program for employees to go after these reviews will create more diversity in your reputation online. In the past, I have had clients create raffles for employees that have given away iPads and 70" flat-screen TVs, big prizes!
Create a unique plan and schedule for where and when your content will be sent out. You've done all the hard work of creating great content for your new patients, now go out there and tell them how awesome your chiropractor office will be for their next visit.
Creating unique content helps build trust with your readers. Create a consistent tone of voice within your content, this can include speaking professionally in your content to be taken as a leader in your medical field or showing compassion within your content. Don't be afraid to interview your past clients to get feedback about your content and ID areas that you can improve.
Work with your web designer and developer to ensure that your website looks gorgeous on all types of mobile devices.
Keep your business hours, appointment links, holiday hours, etc., up-to-date. Make sure there would be no confusion about your business to potential new patients
Every review deserves a response, if positive pay them a nice thank you. If it is a legit bad review be sure to respond to the review in a professional manner and give them an opportunity to resolve the issue through a dedicated customer service line. It could lead to the person turning the poor star rating into a five-star rating.
Avoid stock images, they went out with AOL. Work with your designer to create unique images with awesome call-to-actions to attract more patients
Always be sure you are asking for new keyword ideas, these ideas can inspire other ideas in your marketing strategy.
Web analytics can tell a story about the health of your website and show you opportunities to improve. Look at under-performing content and find ways to create a great outcome for a person.
People won't know you offer a level of service if there is no story to tell. Make sure you are covered and let your content team know about every department in your business operations, you may just find an untapped market.
Like asking for reviews, create more unique content through testimonials on your website. Client testimonials tell the MasterCard story of the ever-lasting experience for a new patient.
This idea requires some work and typically best to hire someone to help with your marketing. But, if you take all the steps and create some unique content on this front you could create a ton of trust with potential new patients. Sit down with clients and conduct a video interview and have them walk through their experience with your practice and how/why they decided to hire you. Creating that journey for new patients demonstrates a strong first hand shake and will help with the hiring decision. Ask yourself, what makes my practice unique?
Write out your mission statement and then have it reviewed. Don't be afraid to hire a business strategist that can help you with this.
Find out what makes your practice different. Ask past clients, ask your chiropractor network, ask your friends. Then collect the data and find the commonalities with your practice.
Titles carry a lot of weight with a person deciding to click AND digest the content on your website. Make them unique, find a party with copy writing experience.
Start gathering emails to promote your content and business, keep your brand top-of-mind when it comes to showing off your practice.
I don't usually provide this to the public, usually, I will keep this to a strategy call. But this is a good opportunity to find unique questions and publish them on your website.

Find some old articles where you are mentioned and reach out to the webmaster and ask if they will update the post with a link.
