FAQ’s

What is medical GP local area marketing?

GP local area marketing is a strategy that targets potential clients within a certain radius of a practice’s physical location. It is especially important for locally based services whose primary mode of service requires in-person interactions. By using carefully chosen localised keywords and deploying SEO strategies, a medical GP can more effectively reach out to new patients seeking out services in their area.

Common keywords searched by potential patients looking for a GP

Most patients consider location as a priority when searching for a GP. Common searches include: “Doctor near me”, “GP near me”, “GP open now”, “GP & suburb name” (eg: gp near Malvern).

Why should GP owners consider Google paid ads?

A large number of potential patients use Google to search for a GP. Google paid ads allows you to target your ads towards people searching within a certain location and puts your medical practice right at the top of their results page.

When should a GP Practice run social media ads?

Social media ads are an ideal way to increase brand awareness for newer medical practices, but are also useful for introducing new services.
