🎁 Product

The product you offer is the very essence of your medical practice and what sets you apart from other specialists. It is important to highlight the different aspects of your practice, such as specific treatments, technologies you use, or services you propose, like video consultations. These arguments can attract new patients to your practice.


💰 Price

The price is another aspect of your medical practice that will be particularly important for your patient. It is important to understand the costs associated with your practice and to reflect these in your fees, while remaining competitive with other practitioners in your area.


📍 Place

The place, or rather the location of your medical practice, is crucial for attracting new patients. It’s not just about accessibility but also visibility. Good search engine optimization on Google or on specialized platforms (like OneDoc) can help. This will help your potential patients find you and make appointments. Please note that here too, thanks to teleconsultation, it is possible to follow up patients even when they are not in your region.


📢 Promotion

Promotion, or more specifically advertising, is critical in attracting new patients and promoting your practice. Show that you exist, whether through social media, online ads, email campaigns, or blogs. Depending on your profession, you may even be able to offer seasonal discounts. In any case, it is important to target your promotional messages to your target audience and adapt them to the different channels used.


🧑🏼‍🤝‍🧑🏾 People

People, or in your case, staff and patient population, are another aspect to consider in marketing. Both are indeed essential to your success. It is important to understand what your patient population expects so you can offer them a solution to their needs. On the staff side, competent and qualified personnel will make a difference in managing the different aspects of your practice, from appointment scheduling to billing.


🎯 To sum up the 5P’s of healthcare marketing

By focusing on the product, price, place, promotion, and people aspects, you will be able to target your marketing efforts. This can help you reach your patients and attract new ones.
