Health services are an incredibly important and incredibly lucrative industry. If you own a TV or listen to the radio, then you probably have a pretty good idea of what health services are available in your area. But it has become so lucrative for some select companies and corporations that they seem to dominate the television and radio airways.
But here’s the thing: even the largest health services companies that you hear and read about don’t have the best internet presence. For whatever reason, a lot of the biggest names in the health industry haven’t yet fully harnessed their online potential yet.
So what does this mean for you? It means that you now have a very small window of opportunity to get online with your business and start building up your site so that you’ll outrank them in the search engines.

Keywords and SEO
Everyone knows that a website is necessary for each and every business that is in existence, but a lot of businesses create websites that are almost a complete waste of space. Sure, telling visitors about your company and what your mission statement is should be posted on your site, but what’s almost just as important (or, in my opinion, even more important) is properly optimizing your site so that it appears in the first few pages of a search engine. After all, you could tell a great story about how your company got started, but if no one’s able to find it on Google, then what’s the point?
Inbound marketing is exactly what you need to take your website from just sitting parked on the web for a few people a month to see, to being a site that hundreds if not thousands of people are viewing each and every month. And as you know, the more traffic you get going to your site, the more business you’ll get, and the happier everyone is. Keywords and keyword phrases play a huge role in bringing your website from the back of the line to the front, and only inbound marketing keyword tools will be able to help you determine which keywords are going to work best for your company and get you found.

Blogs Create Experts
Don’t think that you need a blog? Think again. Blogs aren’t just for hobbyists to talk about tech gadgets or birds that they’ve spotted; they’re a great way to share your knowledge and tell people who are visiting your website that you know what you’re talking about. Having a regular blog that provides useful and insightful information and opinions to your readers will catapult you from just some Joe Schmo to an expert in your niche.
Who would you rather purchase a product or service from – Joe Schmo or an experienced expert? Chances are you’re going to want to go with the expert. Blogs give people a reason to buy from you rather than your competition. People want the best for their money, and if you are seen as “the best” in your field, then you’re bound to see thousands of dollars more each year – all because of your blog.
Get the Word Out with Press Releases
Health services are well known to release regular press releases. When we think of press releases, we tend to think of older, more traditional techniques like press conferences and radio news reports.
Forget those archaic and expensive tactics. Leave that to the more established health services if you don’t have room in your budget, and hire on an inbound marketing firm to prepare and distribute press releases online on your behalf instead. Releasing press releases online is significantly more cost efficient and is often just as effective as traditional methods.
This is really just the beginning of how inbound marketing can work for anyone in the health services industry. Inbound marketing isn’t just about your website, blog, and press releases; it’s also all about online marketing techniques that work. Pay per click, pay per impression, landing pages and proven statistical and analytical methods are also important services that inbound marketing can offer to any company in the health services niche
