Quick & Easy Tips for Growing Your Practice through Online Marketing

1-HOUR WEBINAR: Online Marketing

Want to rapidly expand your practice through online marketing?

The list of online marketing options can be overwhelming: Social media (SM), Search Engine Optimization (SEO), pay per click (PPC), adwords, directory websites, blogs, Facebook pages, YouTube videos, search engines, profiles…In addition to understanding the best approaches to online marketing, behavioral and mental health care professionals have legal, ethical and clinical sensibilities that must also be taken seriously.

Special guest, Dr. Joe Bavonese, can cut through much of the tech-talk related to online marketing — and do it all in less than an hour. Join him as he is interviewed by Dr. Maheu for this must-hear webinar.

You’ll quickly learn the differences and functions of the most effective online marketing strategies. You’ll get to hear about their relative success rates, and the important elements that you will want to consider as you think about the specific clients and patients you serve. You’ll walk away with a few approaches that are optimally suited to your particular talents, interests, budget and needs.
