Can I customize the website to reflect my branding and preferences (my photo and bio)?
Yes, please send us any photos and a bio you have, and we'll get started on making it uniquely yours. For our upper-level plan clients, your Digital Marketing Specialist will be happy to schedule an interview to have a new bio created.
Is there a support team available to assist during the transition period?
Yes. Either our client support team or your Digital Marketing Specialist will be available to assist you throughout this transition period.
Do I have ongoing SEO support?
Essential sites are optimized to be easily found by current and referral patients. For Premium and ultimate plan clients, website performance is monitored regularly with aggressive Google ranking goals of the most profitable new patient search terms. Ultimate casts the net wider for higher Google rankings in more competitive jurisdictions and/or a wider selection of keywords. Each jurisdiction and new patient drawing area is different. Book a consultation to discuss which plan is right for you.
What analytics and tracking tools are provided to monitor website performance?
For our Premium and Ultimate clients, we will provide you with a report monthly, sent on the 10th of the month that will include all of your website analytics. You will also have access to your Digital Marketing Specialist, who monitors your account and can explain what all those numbers mean. …And don't worry, we will reach out if something doesn't look right.
What is the process for transferring ownership of the website and domain?
If we are managing the domain name, we can continue to manage it on your behalf. If the outgoing owner has ownership, please make sure to have them transfer the domain into your name.
Are domain-based emails included in my plan? If so, how many?
Yes! Essential Plan includes 5 domain-based email. We will provide set-up direction and troubleshooting support. Premium Plan includes up to 25 email accounts.
Will there be any downtime during the transfer process?
There is no downtime when transferring the site from one owner to the next.
Do I own the GBP (Google Business Profile) for my new clinic?
We will need to check who is the owner of the GBP. If it is in our SEO team, we will be happy to add any email you use for Google products as an owner. If the old owner is the owner of the GBP, you will need to arrange with them to have your email added as the new owner.
Can I integrate my existing practice management software and/or booking systems with the website?
Please feel free to send us the link to your management software and or booking system and we will be happy to see how best to integrate or link to it.
