CENTENNIAL, Colo., Aug. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MDValuate, a leading patient feedback and marketing platform, today announced it is publishing a guide to help healthcare organizations use the Google My Business online presence tool. The e-book, Healthcare's Guide to Google My Business, is available for free download at http://www.mdvaluate.com/download-the-healthcares-guide-to-google-my-business.
Google My Business is arguably the most important and effective digital touchpoint to elevate a patient's first impression of your physicians and facilities; improve the search rankings of these digital marketing "assets"; and also garner more star ratings and reviews for them.
The content that users find through Google My Business is relevant to local searches on many levels, allowing people to access a wealth of information about your physicians and facilities —or those of competing organizations.
Healthcare providers can quickly take advantage of the powerful platform to help drive the bottom line, but only if it's correctly understood and set up. MDValuate's new guide helps organizations make the most of Google My Business. Among the e-book's features:
Common Google My Business terminology
Guidance for configuring physician and practice location profiles
Strategies for increasing physician reviews
Advice for responding to negative reviews
"When properly configured, Google My Business can prove incredibly effective in increasing awareness of your organization's brand and physicians' brands across multiple top-of-the-funnel touchpoints," says Tod Baker, MDValuate's CEO and co-founder. "Integrating the platform into a digital marketing strategy can truly benefit potential patients by delivering relevant, helpful information, which ultimately helps organizations increase patient acquisition and revenue over the long term. Our new guide gives readers a blueprint for realizing the benefits Google My Business can offer."
