What Does Changing Thought In Audiology Marketing Mean To Website Design
I think that there is the beginning of a shift within our profession towards content marketing as part of an overall audiology marketing strategy. I know that I and some others have been proponents of content marketing for some time. But the changes in Google’s search algorithms has really forced the issue to the fore.
Content Marketing In Audiology Marketing
Content and content marketing is key to your online success. Meta tags and keyword stuffing will in fact damage your audiology marketing. So in order to succeed you need to produce good content, un-plagiarised content, content that has been designed and deployed for SEO value. Above all content that your prospective customers want to read.
If you have followed these outlines you will produce content that will drive traffic to and support your website and eventually your Practice. Because that is the key to all of your audiology marketing strategy, driving people to your Practice. Your key conversion metric is people who either book an appointment through your website or mention your website as the referral point.
What Does A Blog Mean For Website Deployment?
That is the crux of this article, if you are really utilising a blog, you are posting about all and every aspect of the profession. New products that become available, reviews of those products and their on-going efficacy. Types of products, types of hearing loss, advances in technology, cleaning and care of instruments etc.
So if you are doing this on a blog, do you need the in-depth product pages on your web-site? Does it make more sense to keep your website pages more general and link back to your blog with a more information link? Almost a seamless integration of the blog and website, this would remove the pain of doubling content. It would also allow you to concentrate on keeping your site clean, fast and attractive.
It would also allow you to concentrate on special offers, customised calls to actions and focusing your site on the consumer. That is actually another bug bear of mine, most sites are all about the Practice. Not focused on the consumer or what the consumer wants. That is also something that we need to think about, but that is for another post.
So what do you think, does a well deployed blog give us licence to radically change our website structure and content?
