In this day and age, with the Internet at their fingertips, consumers always have multiple choices for where to take their business. You can see this in your own life. For example, if you were in the market for a new car, you would find numerous brands, multiple car dealers, and various models that all promise to fit your needs. Even if you were specific about your preferences – for example, that the car should seat at least six people, should be black in color, should have leather seats, and should have an upgraded sound system – you would still have many options to choose from.
This variety can greatly benefit consumers. However, it can also make it difficult for you as a practice to stand out and attract new patients. After all, if nothing separates your audiology practice from another one that is just five miles away, how will patients know to choose yours?
The key is to create a real connection with your audience – that is, with your potential new patients. This can be done online – before a patient even visits your office – whether on your website or your social media pages. A connection is your ticket to drawing a patient to your practice. Here are a few simple ways to form a connection with your audience and gain their business:
For example, data may indicate that many patients who come to you from the Internet are experiencing hearing loss. Does that mean that all patients who find your practice online have hearing loss? Of course not. So, create marketing and website content that fits and attracts patients with hearing loss, but do not neglect patients who may experience other hearing disorders.
All of these strategies will help build a real connection between you and your audience. And when a person feels connected to your practice, they will feel comfortable in deciding to become your patient.
