Lead-Generating Portals & Directories: Connecting You to Prospective Patients

Layer_827_copy

In today’s rapid-paced, high-tech world, consumers rely on the Internet for everything from phone numbers to information about sensitive healthcare procedures. Research shows that the vast majority begin their searches with global search terms such as LASIK and cataract surgery, Veneers, Breast Augmentation, Bariatric Surgery. Knee Replacement, etc.

The top results for these highly competitive search terms are almost always limited to government agencies and large educational sites. A single practice — even a successful, well-known practice — stands little chance of ranking for these highly coveted positions.

A listing in a Lead-Generation Directory that is part of one of these powerful sites will ensure that your practice is found by consumers searching for educational information and tips on choosing a doctor.

Lead Generation Basics

Why Be in a Directory?

Unlike individual practice websites, good directories are able to compete with other large sites (e.g., FDA) for first-page search engine rankings for core search terms. Since 80% of all healthcare searches are performed using core, or global, search terms, a healthcare practice that chooses not to be listed in a directory is forfeiting a large number of potential patients. Directories that feature credible consumer content build credibility for their practices listed. They also provide practice branding and visibility. A practice that is found multiple times during a potential patient’s search experience is far more likely to be contacted than a practice that appears just once, or not at all.

What Makes a Good Directory?

A doctor directory is effective only if it has certain attributes. A good directory makes it easy for prospective patients to contact your practice by providing highly visible contact information and links that connect directly to your practice website. Good directories also appear prominently in organic listings for heavily searched procedure-related search terms such as “Breast Augmentation,” “LASIK eye surgery” and “Veneers,” and secondary terms such as “Orthopedic Surgeons” or “Bariatric Surgeons.”

The Objective: Targeted, Qualified Leads

A successful directory website provides potential patients with comprehensive, reliable, up-to-date information about the procedures that interest them. A prospective patient who arrives at your practice from this type of directory is more likely to move forward with the procedure.
