81% of people click on a sponsored link when looking for health information online. If you have not yet dabbled with digital advertising, it’s time to give it a try.
Leverage the ad-targeting tools that are available through Google and Facebook, such as location-based advertising. Ad targeting will show your ads to the right users at the moment they’re in your area of interest.
Mobile ads also have click to call technology making it easy for patients to call your practice. Digital advertising is not only more targeted with clear returns of your expenditure, it is also less expensive than you may think!
