MPW Places Client on CBS 2 New York

September 14, 2018

One of the strategies we utilize is helping to share good deeds performed by our clients with New York and New Jersey media outlets.

While we are not directly marketing the services or products of our clients, we are telling a story about their values and the caliber of their brand.

Yesterday, CBS 2 in New York featured a community service project sponsored by our client, a senior living retirement community here in New Jersey.

Our client wa thrilled with the 2-minute feature piece–as well as the added commentary at the end of the piece by senior news anchors Maurice Dubois and Kristine Johnson:

Healthcare Client Placement in NJ Monthly Magazine

November 17, 2017

NJ Monthly’s biggest issue of the year is the November “Top Docs” issue.

This year’s top-selling issue is an extended article about opioid-free pain treatment options in the NJ-metro area, “As Addiction Rises, Doctors Seek Pain-Relieving Alternatives to Opioids.”

We were pleased to place our Bergen County chiropractic and pain management doctor in this article, which has generated nationwide attention for its focus on non-invasive pain treatment alternatives which have no patient side effects.

Most importantly, patients are consistently reporting reduced or even an elimination of pain after therapy.

Congratulations to our client for boldly pushing forward alternative solutions to severe chronic pain.


If you healthcare practice or small business is also doing great things–and nobody knows about it–let us reach out to local, regional and national media to share your story.

NJ Pain Management Doctor Featured on The Mighty

August 22, 2017

We are pleased to place our doctor client on The Mighty, a global patient-targeted chronic illness site for support and education with nearly one million followers.

Our client uses an FDA-cleared device to help patients overcome medication and treatment-resistant neuropathic pain.

The device manufacturer has no branded advertising, marketing plan or public relations support.

To overcome this obstacle, we developed a ‘start-up’ brand strategy for this Bergen County chiropractor which included soup to nuts:

  • Logo and brand ID
  • Website and blog
  • Social media profiles including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+
  • Expert content on topics related to alternative medicine/pain relief
  • Media outreach and public relations

Today, the doctor is a world-renowned expert on the use of the device and his success rate combatting several specific pain conditions.

He maintains a patient base from as far away as Australia, South Africa, South America, Western Europe, Canada and across the U.S.

Older Seniors Still Turn to Print for Their News

July 19, 2017A longtime client, a retirement community affiliated with a regional hospital in Freehold, is home to older seniors who are increasingly open to using electronic media for their news.

But they are still going to read a print newspaper first.

And who could blame them?

(Some of us here at MPW still prefer to work on desktop computers, much to the chagrin of those half our age…)

To reach future residents, and let them know what a wonderful place Applewood is, we often pitch great editorial stories to print journalists first.

Today, the Newspaper Media Group (The News Transcript in our geo area) published a full-color, oversized image with caption and an article (created by us) about our client’s volunteer efforts.

Not only does the article herald the residents‘ volunteer efforts, it conveys to the reader what a great place Applewood must be.

Coverage like this (and this in the Asbury Park Press) trumps an advertisement any day, trust us.

How do you target your future customers

When you think about your brand, how are you reaching future clients and customers?

Do you have the expertise to present your products or services in a way that they will not feel like they’re being ‘sold?’

If you are befuddled by how to cost effectively reach more customers, we can help.

Reach out to us at info@mpwcomm.com or call our team at (732) 763-1866.

 

Senior Living Community Client in NJ Featured on News 12

November 2016

When seniors (or their children) are seeking retirement community living, they are not just looking for a roof over their heads, they are looking for an inspired, lively environment where the resident will thrive.

Our retirement community client, located in Freehold, Monmouth County, accomplishes this goal like no other continuing care retirement community (CCRC) that we have ever seen.

We placed the executive director and a resident on News 12 to talk about their brand’s unique selling points (USPs) and why senior viewers should be flocking to their comprehensive lifestyle program at this flourishing senior living community.

It was a five-minute designated segment devoted entirely to their community’s merits. The segment featured the director’s expertise and the resident’s (the customer’s) obvious satisfaction with the product/service she had purchased.

Can we help you promote your business to customers here in New Jersey? Call us at (732) 763-1866 to talk about your brand’s business goals.

We’ll take the lead and make it happen, sooner than you expect.

 

 

 

 

Our doctor client is now a contributing writer for the Asbury Park Press

November 10, 2015

app logo_plainIn central New Jersey, the daily publication everyone reads first is the Asbury Park Press, a Gannett newspaper. Their reporting is accurate, creative, forthright and educational.

On Tuesdays, they publish an in-depth health feature section called “Healthy Living.”

In partnership with the doctor, we created a proposal for the APP editorial team where our physician client would contribute his medical expertise as a featured writer for the section and, in turn, garner exposure for his medical practice.

The editors approval the plan and the client’s first article (supported by our research, content suggestions and editing) appears today:


“Manage your weight loss, look your best by the holidays”


Note our client’s calling card–his practice name, phone number and live link to his website–are all included at the end of the article Dr. Adeyeri's APP Bio_2015in his bio. This makes it easy for thousands of readers (online and print) to contact him for an appointment and more information.

The Power of Content for Your Private Medical Practice

November 5, 2015

Busy DoctorFor doctors, there are very few hours in the week available for private practice marketing. Sure, they would love to post important educational articles on their Facebook and Twitter feeds or share new research with medical colleagues on LinkedIn, but doing this takes a backseat to patient care (followed by the endless pile of paperwork, of course).

We help doctors manage Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn social media

That’s where MPW Communications can help–once you’re our client, our team’s first assignment is to become “experts” in your medical specialty.

Then we determine who your target patient is and create a plan to find them and help them get to know you.

Once this initial strategy is in place, we establish a multi-pronged strategy to position you as a “thought leader” in your area of medical expertise.

An emerging trend supporting this effort is collaborative articles that feature several doctors contributing content for one subject.

The media is seeking your medical content about pertinent healthcare topics (but you don’t have time to write it).

Here’s an example:

live-science-logoWe were honored to be part of an exciting new LiveScience.com Health educational commentary about the changing face of breast cancer treatment. The article is co-authored by four physician experts in the field of breast cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

My team and I helped these doctors put this article together through interviews, including medical documentation and research, and producing 2,000 words into a professional publication format.

LiveScience.com has proven to be a “feeder” publication to nationally-acclaimed news sources such as Huffington Post,
Fox News, Yahoo News, Everyday Health and other high-profile publication feeds which are read by just about everyone.

This particular document is especially valuable as it mentions / promotes the hospital with whom these doctors are affiliated, which will delight the PR team at the hospital who will also share the story through their local social media outlets and media contacts…

I want my voice to be heard in the healthcare area

If the time is right to have your voice heard, reach out to me directly at 732.763.1866 to discuss your medical practice’s marketing communications needs.

If it’s easier, complete the attached info below and I’ll be happy to contact you or set up a quick meeting.

Rest assured, the strategy we create will be tailored specifically for you and your medical practice’s growth goals.

So let’s chat.

One physician article, many national media placements

HuffPoLogoA hospital system here in central New Jersey has been one of our clients for many years. To support many of their high-profile doctors who are affiliated with the hospital, the public relations department will often work with the physicians to write topical health and wellness articles under the doctor’s name.

These informative and timely articles are then submitted to various media outlets.fox_news_logo_a_lyahoo-news-logo Recently, we were assigned to write an article for a pediatrician focusing on surprising dangers in the home for young children.

Within a week, the article was published on several nationwide media outlets (the Huffington Post had more than 700 likes and 100+ shares in less than 24 hours…) and her informative and educational commentalive-science-logory was read by thousands of people (hopefully lots of parents!).
