Course Title:  Website Design and Internet Marketing: Building Your Practice in a Digital World 

Presenter: Dr. Joshua Gindea

Course Time: 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST

Course Description:

While health professionals are among the most highly educated, talented and intelligent groups, most will admit to be totally uninformed about best business practices and how to grow their practices. The business of medicine, dentistry, podiatry, optometry and other health fields is never discussed in professional schools and must be self-taught or learned through sometimes very uncomfortable experiences.  Among the most under-utilized tools by the health professional is the use of website and internet marketing techniques. These tools can be used by every doctor to greatly expand their communication with patients, increase their internet presence, build their online reputation and vastly expand the scope of their practices.

  • Among the topics that covered in the lectures are:
  • Website Design Dos and Dont’s
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • How to list your practice/business across the internet
  • Social Media Management
  • Maps Listings
  • Search Engine Submission
  • Generating Reviews and Monitoring Your Online Reputation
  • Pay-Per-Click Advertising
