Let’s discuss amongst ourselves:

In order to make your medical practice or business stand out these days, you will need more than a website. You just do, even if it’s a beautiful one, and here’s the reason why: there are many of you out there, I’m sorry to say. There are many of me out there as well, if it makes you feel any better. So, what, in this new world of information/media blasting overload and intense competition, will make you and your business stand apart and get noticed? The number of business websites and blogs have more than quadrupled in the last 4 years. Getting noticed as the clear choice is getting harder and harder, unless you are in an industry with no competition.

So what sets you apart?

  • Your reputation-hopefully a good one- for sure,
  • The quality of your work or products,

As promised in last weeks blog on the ongoing Organic Traffic Vs. Pay-Per Click debate,  once you have people on your blog, how do you keep them there? Here are some key design tips that make a big difference in keeping people on and interacting with your blog or website:

 

  • Provide direct, concise, clear and very useful content.  In other words, the type of information that can’t be found elsewhere.
