People want to see the face behind the name before they book an appointment. Whilst stock images do the job, photography takes your practice a step higher by building a genuine connection and personal relationship with your visitor before they’ve even met you. It’s also an opportunity to showcase your practice and build familiarity for your patients to make them feel more at ease when they arrive.

How you stay in touch with patients and convey important information to them about your practice is vitally important. Medimark can develop and execute a marketing communications strategy that aligns with your vision and your values. We understand and work within the APHRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) regulations to achieve your goals.
As well as having consistent branding, you should have other material that you can distribute to your patients and referrers. Branded material keeps your medical practice front of mind. Patients will see you as a reputable source when provided with information about medical conditions and treatment options. Consistency in branding builds brand equity and an increased level of professionalism.
– Branded stationery – Flyers – Brochures – Merchandise – And more
Public relations, when done correctly, can be picked up by many media outlets giving your practice more exposure to a larger audience. Patients who may not otherwise know your practice become familiar with your brand through solid public relations efforts. PR builds your brand equity, trust, credibility and perception as being honest and reliable. When you have been featured by a third-party source, subconsciously people feel more comfortable with you. People who are seen in the media (for the right reasons) are regarded as an expert in their field.
Medimark can help you gain visibility through various channels including:
– Television – Radio – Social Media: (Facebook/Instagram/YouTube) – Newspapers (paper/online)

Physicians aren’t given the same level of support as other professionals with respect to business development. There is a stigma surrounding medical marketing makes it difficult for medical specialists to see the value in business development. While this mentality is slowly changing, it’s not evolving fast enough. Medimark wants to know what your practice growth goals are so we can effectively go out and invigorate your untapped referral network in person.
Strategic marketing is a process of planning, developing and implementing initiatives to differentiate from your peers to gain a competitive edge and preferred choice for referrals. This is achieved by focusing on your strengths (both current and potential) and mitigating your weaknesses to provide consistently better value to patients.
Social media is an important part of any digital marketing campaign as it enables your practice to build your brand personality and communicate with current and potential patients and referrers. When you regularly post your own health-related articles or share news stories through social media channels, your practice becomes the authority and leader in the field, so you’ll be referred to as a source of expertise. It’s also a great tool to keep in touch with your referral network.
– Build your brand
– Promote your accounts
– Curate valuable content
– Engage your social network and community
Most users will look no more than the first 5 pages of a search engine so you want to be ranked higher than your peers. When SEO is done correctly, your medical practice will appear higher in search engine rankings. This increases your listing position and drives more traffic to your website from keywords people are typing to find the services they are looking for.
For example, when looking for a doctor, people would prefer to see one nearby, so using local SEO to optimise your website for these types of searches, enables you to reach more potential patients.
– Optimise your practice for local search
– Create original content
– Build high quality links
