Doctors and Medical Marketing.

A digital marketing strategy should be part of every modern medical practice’s advertising plan.

Today’s advertising and marketing ecosystem is complex. You need a partner you can rely on to help you navigate it and make the best decisions for your medical practice’s marketing strategy.

MediaMax offers both print and digital marketing solutions for medical practices large and small. Some of the clients we typically work with include:

– Plastic surgeons
– Hospitals
– Addiction and behavioral healthcare providers
– Oncologists and cancer centers
– Primary care providers
– Dentists

And many more. If your business is in the healthcare space, you need a healthcare marketing strategy that connects you to prospective patients and that makes your medical practice stand out from the rest.


Today’s digital marketing strategies rely on consumer data to reach a targeted audience. Customer data is any information your brand collects directly from clients. It includes data they’ve provided on your website or social media channels, such as email addresses they’ve given you. It also includes data they’ve given your practice through surveys or forms.

Consumer data is usually the most valuable type of data, as it comes from the clients themselves.

MediaMax’s maxIQ lets you use valuable consumer data to enhance the efficiency of a digital marketing campaign. With maxIQ, your brand will be able to target specific users and serve them ads across multiple touchpoints. Your medical practice will enjoy increased brand awareness, site visits, and ideally, patient bookings.


Some medical practices, particularly those in the luxury sphere, who want to reach a high-end audience, might worry that digital marketing can sully their reputation or make their brand look cheap.

The truth is that the right marketing strategy can elevate a luxury healthcare brand, making it even more desirable. Programmatic advertising allows for that.

Programmatic advertising puts your practice’s ads in front of the right audience. Not only that, but it also makes those audience members feel like they are part of an exclusive club. Through programmatic advertising, your practice can reach a targeted niche of clients, based on their behaviors and demographic information, such as household income and age.

Print Advertising for Medical Practices.

Print Isn’t Dead

They say print is dead, but that can’t be further from the truth. More than 90% of adults read print magazines and nearly three-quarters of them say they find it more enjoyable to flip through a print magazine than to read stories on a device.

MediaMax is the exclusive advertising partner for Condé Nast. When your medical practice partners with us, we’ll get your brand’s message in the pages of the publications that are most likely to reach your target audience.

FAQs: Marketing for Doctors.

It’s true that everyone will need medical care at some point or another. When that time comes, you want to be the practice or hospital they think of. For that to happen, you need to get your brand’s message out there well before a client needs dental care, prenatal care, a facelift or any other type of medical treatment.

With an effective marketing strategy, your medical practice will be the first thing that comes to mind when a prospective patient needs to make an appointment.
