As a medical practitioner, an integral part of your job is attracting patients to your practice. This is something that can be a bit tricky if you do not understand the importance of digital marketing. In our modern world, video marketing is one of the most important parts of any digital marketing campaign. There have been many doctors who have become extremely popular on social media due to their videos of procedures they perform. This can be a wonderful way for new patients to learn about your superior skills in your chosen medical field and the services your practice offers. Marketing for doctors is a fun thing to do once you start incorporating video into your marketing plan.

Regularly Post High-Quality and Engaging Videos

It is very unlikely that any of your videos are going to go viral if you are rarely posting. You need to raise your chances of going viral by constantly uploading videos that will captivate your audience. YouTube’s algorithms reward creators who are posting on a daily basis. As a busy doctor, this may be a difficult thing to do. However, if you can post a video a week, you will still be rewarded somewhat by these algorithms. Make sure that your videos are informative, exciting, entertaining, or engaging. A video with all of these elements will have a much better chance of being shared by your viewers and then going viral.

Know Your Target Audience

Knowing as much as possible about your target audience is key for video marketing. You will need to be as specific as possible when breaking down what that audience looks like. Everything from the age, gender, where they live, their interests and how your practice meshes with their lives and needs. It is also important to make sure that your videos focus on areas that are of interest to them. The focus should be on educating and training your target audience on issues relevant to their lives. The overall goal is for prospective patients to think “Yes, this issue is relevant to my life, and I want to learn more about it.” When someone sees a marketing video that resonates with their life and needs, they will be more likely to contact you for more information.

Promote/Boost Your Videos

Boosting lets you target specific demographics and gives you an estimation of the reach it will have.

When you want to start gaining views quickly, it can be a good idea to invest in promoting your video. Learning how to promote your videos on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube can be an essential part of a viral video. When you do not have a large following on social media, it is important to start getting viewers in front of your videos. Post promoting/boosting allows you to specify exactly who your post targets, making it more likely that your target audience will watch and engage with it. Allotting a portion of your advertising budget to promoting your videos can be a great way to get the ball rolling. If your video is a hit, these viewers who landed on your video due to your advertising will quickly share it with their friends and colleagues over social media.
