PUBLIC RELATIONS FOR Physicians
COMMUNICATIONS AGENCY FOR PHYSICIANS
HOW TO PROMOTE YOURSELF AS A Physician
Your first impression might be that they’re either a trailblazer in their subspecialty, or they got lucky. But that’s probably not the case. What’s far more likely is that they have a medical PR team pushing their medical practice to the general public. Today, physicians leverage healthcare PR firms to build their name recognition. With the right PR agency behind your practice, you can become the medical expert people trust and rely upon. This quick guide discusses how to broaden your media coverage with the help from a media relations team.
How Public Relations for Physicians Works
In an era where news media is ubiquitous in American life, advertising is no longer the ideal medium to build your brand. For the most part, the public has become jaded to “salesy” messaging, especially if communication is static, manufactured, and inauthentic. Given advertising’s echo chamber, a media appearance sets apart the “notable” from the “everyday.” In other words, it’s a powerful PR stratagem and marketing strategy that can solidify your name as a medical expert in an authentic and digestible manner.
PR for Physicians Isn’t the Same as Advertising
Advertising focuses on the “sale” or the “conversion.” Yet, most people don’t like being told—even indirectly—to buy something. However, people are far more receptive to celebrities or influencers providing suggestions or advice. To them, it’s an honest source of information and a better form of content marketing. It’s first-party data they trust. A specialized public relations department can leverage digital media, press releases, and editorial coverage to highlight your work in medicine. By appearing as a media commentator, you can build awareness and trust, which allows you to retain current patients and guide new patients into your medical practice.
You don’t have to be a public speaker, a savant in your subspecialty, or a big city doctor. You just need to have a winning personality and the capacity to boil down complex medical topics into palatable sound bites. If you educate, people will listen.
