Whole-Brain Marketing for Specialty Healthcare Providers

Practice growth guaranteed

Two ways to find more patients

Vanguard Communications has developed two distinct programs – MedMarketLink and MedSocialLink – which have been carefully formulated to meet the needs of medical practices by incorporating key components of Internet marketing and patient communication proven to build practices.

We don’t advertise. We educate.

With more than 20 years experience in healthcare marketing and finding new patients for providers, we know that patients look for health information first and doctors second. With data from Google and other sources behind this idea, we know that today’s savvy e-powered patients look for information about their health much more often than (and long before) they search for a provider. When patients do find a doctor, they choose the doctor based on information they can trust.

Patients want to be told, not sold. For this reason, Vanguard’s carefully crafted healthcare marketing programs are content-centric, emphasizing online health education through multiple channels: the practice website, public relations, social media and more. This content marketing strategy positions each practice as an expert in the field and an information resource, offering meaningful information that develops trust and makes searching patients your patients.

We guarantee it.
