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.

Call MPW, located in Monmouth County, at 732-763-1866.

 

Promoting our NJ physician clients as doctors–but people too

Surgery imageJanuary 12, 2016

Choosing a new doctor is tricky–you often don’t have much to go on other than what you can find on the Internet.

If patients are going to be under the care of a doctor for a longer period of time, say for a chronic condition or long-term treatment, they’re looking for a healthcare provider who is:

1) highly skilled and qualified

2) enthusiastically recommended by other patients (within the past few months)

2) has a pleasant ‘bedside manner’ for the ongoing hospital and/or office visits ahead

NJ Doctor Public Relations

One of our Freehold, New Jersey – based surgeons has all of these assets–and more.  He is highly skilled technically, but also has a winning personality–calming, reassuring, smart and dedicated to his patients 24/7/365.

As his marketing and public relations arm, it’s our job to promote these unique attributes by  helping potential patients in the central New Jersey geographic area discover him and feel like they’ve known him even before their first medical consultation.

app logo_plainAs part of this strategy, we placed an article today by the surgeon in his targeted geographic area, detailing his personal New Year resolutions for 2016.

“A doctor’s personal health resolutions for 2016”


The goal of this article was to serve as an educational piece for readers, but also to present the doctor as someone who personally cares about maintaining his own heath.

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.

That’s where MPW Communications comes in.

If you’re our client, tell us what’s important to you that you want people the-huffington-postto know–new medical breakthroughs, techniques, procedures, resources and even an opinion piece about what matters to you.

Is It Time to Boost Your NJ Medical Practice Marketing to the Next Level?

MDJuly 17, 2015

Do you outsource medical billing or accounting functions at your medical practice?

Due to the increasing time constraints (thank you, ACA) on doctors, nurses and administrative staff, it’s a fact of life. And let’s be honest, once you partner with the right service providers, it’s one less headache to worry about.

Your reasons for outsourcing are probably because it is more cost-effective, faster, and so that the people who are really good at it can make it happen for you.

But what about your marketing, public relations and advertising needs?

Unless you have a large practice, you probably don’t have someone in-house with specific medical marketing expertise in the New Jersey geo area that includes:

    • Social media expertise in healthcare (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+)
    • Building relationships with your “Raving Fan” patients to help increase patient referrals
    • Using simple and effective tools to increase your visibility to referring doctors
    • Contacts with local reporters and editors
    • Expert-level content skills to craft patient testimonials and white papers about your medical expertise
    • Relationships with local organizations who would like to feature you as a guest speaker
    • 365 days-a-week ability to update your website and keep it fresh, exciting and educational

Social media management and marketing outsourcing are hugely beneficial to your private practice

Here at MPW HEALTH, our services generally cost less than a part-time employee and have BIG impact on clinic growth, whether you are located in Bergen County or Gloucester County, New Jersey.

Contact us at 732-617-9296 or info@mpwcomm.com and we’ll be happy to review your website, online presence and current marketing program at no cost. Then we can chat about your goals and how we can help achieve them–sooner rather than later.

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!).

Print Glossies are Far from Dead

ImageYes, yes, we know. Print media is dead. We hope our competitors keep believing this so that our team here can continue to win very valuable (free) editorial placements in these publications.

Regional magazines are especially important for our healthcare clients targeting a local patient base. 201 Magazine is a perfect example. This is a northern NJ monthly targeting upscale Bergen County residents.  In addition to this popular edition, they offer several additional spin-off publications including 201 Health.

We began pitching them in mid-2011 and in early 2012 they called us for an interview with our Bergen County client and its new pain therapy treatment. The end result was a three-page feature article which included on-site photos, an interview with the lead doctor and two of his patients. The article was beautifully written and the images  were right on target. Keep in mind, this article was published at $0 cost to the practice. (Incidentally, the cost for one full-page ad is close to $5,000).

Best of all, people suffering with chronic pain in northern NJ now know  this non-invasive pain treatment is available just minutes from home. Due to the success of this placement, our client is interested in launching an ad campaign in the magazine next year.
