Marketing in Medical Tourism <br />Target your activitiesThere are many hospitals, clinics and medical tourism operators out there who don’t have a clearly defined service strategy.<br />What service am I selling, into what markets and to what demographics? Now is the time to think this through, and identify very clearly your market niche.<br />
  21. 21. Maximize your return on marketing investment<br />Measure your return on investment on all marketing activities. And invest in those that deliver results: <br />Invest in the web, because it’s the one area of marketing expenditure where you can measure your return and control your budget easily.<br />
  22. 22. Use PR. It’s a low cost and effective way of promoting your services to patients in other countries. (Become a Treatment Abroad client and we’ll give you our free guide to generating PR coverage!)<br />Take advantage of free web promotion. Send your news articles to Treatment Abroad (it’s a Google approved news feed for medical tourism – your news story will get indexed by Google within the hour, if published). <br />
  23. 23. Improve your conversion rate<br />Turn more web enquiries and leads into paying patients and customers. <br />If someone has bothered to complete an enquiry form for your service, then they have probably done the same for some of your competitors. <br />Respond faster, and respond better with an informative, personalised and high quality response.

  25. 25. Be brave!<br />Don’t cut back your marketing budget. In a recession, the strong survive. Use the opportunity to take market share from competitors who are less well equipped, and ill prepared to deal with a downturn. <br />Don’t cut your prices because you think it will bring you more business. Think about where you can add value to your service offering to give yourself a competitive edge and concentrate on customer service and service quality. <br />Put the above into practice. Then, whether we see an upturn or a downturn.... you'll be on the winning side!<br />
