With the popularity of internet marketing on the rise, you may feel that conventional marketing is a thing of the past. This could not be further from the truth. Television, radio, newspaper and magazines are all viable mediums for your ad campaign. Your patients still listen to the radio, watch TV and like to have printed marketing materials in their hands to learn about their elective surgery options. The more often they hear your name and see your logo, the more ingrained your practice will become and the more likely they will contact your practice when they are ready to move forward with a medical procedure.
Even if you have produced an amazing radio or television ad, if your ad isn’t seen or heard by the appropriate audience, it is money wasted.
Negotiating media buying and identifying the most effective placement of your ad can be very confusing.

We work closely with media outlets so can stretch your marketing dollars to maximize your investment. We can help you decide where best to place your ad, when best to place it, how often you should place it and which channels your target market tunes into.
Let’s face it: television ads are impressive. If your elective surgery practice is featured on TV, you will gain a certain amount of credibility with prospective patients.
Of course, your TV spot should be professionally produced and relevant to the viewer.

Think Outside the “Waves:” Internet Radio
Internet radio stations like Pandora are becoming increasingly popular and can be highly effective in producing qualified leads. Fast Track has a strong relationship with Pandora so we can negotiate lower rates for our clients.
Most internet radio is free. You simply log on to the station, choose songs or genres you like and the site will feed you similar songs. The sites allow you to weed out the songs you don’t like so you end up with a unique radio station that only plays the music you enjoy. You can “design” dozens of stations to fit your moods. The best thing about internet radio is that you can listen to it on your desktop PC, smart phone, tablet, car – wherever.
Advertising on internet radio allows you to hyper-target listeners based on age, gender, lifestyles, hobbies, location – literally hundreds of audience segments. Your short 30-second message temporarily interrupts the music with an audio and static banner image to connect with highly-engaged listeners.
