One of the most common questions we get from new clients is, “Should we have a newsletter?” The answer is (probably) yes. So, should your practice have a newsletter? The answer is also (probably) yes.
Dollar for dollar, well-crafted and planned newsletters are a great way to reach potential patients and solidify relationships with existing ones. They form a key part of your medical practice’s content strategy with the ultimate goal of driving patients to your website and through the front door. Newsletters keep patients interacting with your practice long after their appointment is complete, and it helps them easily share your practice information with friends and family either digitally or physically depending on which route you take.
We work with dozens of medical practices ranging from single providers to multi-location practices with 25+ physicians. The majority of them use at least email newsletters; however, around a quarter of practices also employ a printed copy.
How can you easily determine which format is right for you? Tune in to find out. In this episode we’ll answer that question and much more, including:
