Patient Feedback and Marketing

Patient feedback can be used as a marketing tool to add credibility to a website. Beyond assessing feedback to better understand your audience, you can use comments or reviews as content for attracting new potential customers. Patient feedback can also be useful when showcasing your business and gaining an advantage over your competitors.

Defining Feedback Marketing

Feedback marketing is a strategy that allows patients to share their experiences with your business. Patients who are highly engaged are more likely to purchase goods or services, and using feedback as marketing can also create a community between the company and its customers.

This type of marketing can be helpful when improving customer retention and satisfaction. When your target audience sees feedback that resonates with them and their values, they are more likely to choose your practice.

Understanding Customer Perspective

Understanding the customer or patient perspective is crucial for any business. This perspective allows you to adjust to the customer’s current needs and highlight them within your marketing campaign. Adapting to your audience’s wants is an essential way to improve customer retention and acquisition.

Using Feedback in Social Media and on Your Company Website

Feedback can also be valuable content in advertisements or social media posts. Customer feedback and reviews can be in quotes or testimonies displayed on the company website, social media, and/or YouTube page to maximize audience reach. Observing patient feedback can also help businesses understand current trends that can be levied within their marketing plans.

Boosting Google Rankings

The use of patient feedback through Google Reviews can increase Google rankings. Although it is unknown if Google reviews influence the search engine results page (SERP), feedback does affect rankings for local search. Positive reviews are an influential aspect of digital marketing, especially in healthcare. Patients rely on others’ experiences to compare between providers and determine which practice is right for them.

Focusing on Current Customers

Feedback allows you to focus on your patients and tailor your services to their needs. Responding to both positive and negative feedback shows that the company values the customer and their opinions. Responses to customer feedback should always be as personalized as possible.

Utilize Patient Feedback in Your Marketing Plan

Patient feedback should be an essential part of any marketing strategy. Feedback can be highlighted in social media and advertising through patient testimonials and reviews. Feedback can also help boost local SEO and ranking against competitors. Posting reviews on your company website can also be a great way to link in keywords and increase website visibility.
