Digital Marketing in a Pandemic

To put this conversation in perspective, Dr. David played a major role in the incredible growth of Josh Axe and Jordan Rubin’s company, Ancient Nutrition. In medicine marketing and other niches, Dr. David oversees more than a million dollars per month in advertising and marketing spend. Out of necessity, this scope has forced Dr. David to stay on top of industry trends and keep his finger on the pulse of the marketplace. Now more than ever, digital marketing is a critical lifeline of brick and mortar businesses like FM practices. David’s expertise provides a better understanding of what we can do to start working toward mastery.

Now is the Time to Pursue Warm Leads

As we get our engines up to speed in 2021, we need to make sure our functional medicine marketing strategy is focused on warm leads. Whether it is our email lists, previous patients, or prospects that never started treatment, we need to leverage all of our resources to add value to the people who already know about us. This means diversifying our marketing spend so that we are not relying on one platform or one stream of content to drive traffic and win patients. 2020 has shown us the sheer power of digital media, and the very real impact it can have on people’s decisions and worldview. You want to make sure your efforts are in the right place so you can drive growth and maximize your results.
