115% increase in monthly online form submissions
Our client is a comprehensive medical and surgical practice devoted to the care of musculoskeletal problems. They are a large practice with 9 physicians that have been serving the greater Augusta area for over 40 years.
Our client wanted to improve their website’s search engine optimization and increase the number of patients visiting their new website.
We plotted out a phased launch for the practice, starting with a new website and local SEO. We then created unique content about their specialties to add to the website. This content helps the practice educate patients and highlight the expertise of their physicians, while significantly improving their search engine optimization. Finally, the practice began a review-gathering plan to improve their online review volumes and word of mouth.
Keeping in mind that it can take several months for search engine optimization efforts to gain traction, we began to see significant improvements in the practice’s search ranking and traffic in September 2019. Traffic to their website increased by about 20%, and average monthly appointments increased by over 100%! This indicates that the content on their site is attracting more qualified patients who are ready to make appointments. Additionally, in less than a year of launching their reputation marketing strategy, the practice’s total number of online reviews increased from 113 to 1406 across all major healthcare review sites, and increased their average provider rating from 4.1 to 4.8. This kind of growth can help make a positive impression on patients searching online.
