Boy, have things changed in the world of marketing for new plastic
Not very long ago, it was enough to update your website, use key words
and backlinks and web traffic found you.
Not any more. The Internet has gotten too crowded and google has
gotten a lot stricter about who gets ranked.
For example, if you do a google search, “liposuction surgeon”, you will
most likely see ASAPS, ASPS and WebMD come up first way before you’ll
see a solo plastic surgeon’s website.
That’s because the big boys have authority over solo plastic surgeons.

- Social Media
- Banner Ads

But, instead you typically have a pay-per-click ad go to a webpage and
hope they call you.
You need to build familiarity with that prospective patient so they get
comfortable enough with you to actually call and visit.
Increase a Patient’s Value
It’s almost impossible to “burn and churn” through patients…it’s too
expensive and exhausting to constantly find new patients.
That doesn’t happen by accident. Everyone is too busy and focused on themselves
to care about growing your practice so they need your help.
Stay in touch with these patients so they become your sales ambassadors!
