Step 2

Optimize Your Cannabis Clinic's Website.

Optimize your website: Make sure that your website is user-friendly, easy to navigate, and contains all the information that potential patients might be looking for. This includes information about your practice, services offered, and any relevant medical marijuana laws and regulations.

The more relevant your website content is to a potential patient’s Google search, the more likely you’ll show in a higher position among search results – and at a lower price too! This can also be referred to as Search Engine Optimization or SEO. SEO allows you to rank organically for relevant searches, which earns you quality traffic, free-of-charge for eternity.

You can be found at the top of Google search results.

Step 3

Use Relevant Keywords.

Use relevant keywords in your website content and metadata to improve your search engine rankings. This will make it easier for potential patients to find your website when searching for cannabis doctors in your area. This also helps earn a higher “quality score” on your keywords, which ultimately reduces your average cost per click.

Step 4

Utilize Social Media

Social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram can be powerful tools for reaching new patients. Share information about your practice, relevant medical marijuana news, and helpful resources to engage with your audience and attract new patients. This also helps you become more familiar and top-of-mind when it comes time for them to vet a qualified cannabis doctor nearby.

Step 5

Paid Advertising Makes a Difference

Paid advertising on platforms like Google AdWords or Facebook Ads can help you reach a wider audience and attract new patients. Be sure to carefully target your ads to the right audience to maximize the effectiveness of your advertising budget.

Step 6

Collect Patient Reviews

Patient reviews can be a powerful way to attract new patients. Encourage your current patients to leave reviews on your website, social media, and review sites like Google and Yelp. This reinforces that your next patient is making the right choice to click on YOUR search marketing advertisement on Google- and selecting YOU as their preferred, local, medical marijuana doctor.

By following these tips, you can effectively market your cannabis practice and attract new medical marijuana patients.
