Top Three Metrics:
Data is Everything
No, I’m not talking about the android. I’m talking about the essential numbers that tell you how well your practice is doing. Where are you rockin’ it? Where do you need to shore things up?
Obviously, your most important asset to reaching new patients is your website. But is it working for you the way you need it to be? We’ve put together some key metrics you want to be watching to make sure your website is putting new patients in your lane.
How many visitors are coming to your site? Where are they coming from? Are they local? Can you be sure that traffic is relevant to you? New patients aren’t going to come from three states over. Understanding your traffic is crucial.
This metric refers to how many people land on your website only to immediately leave without doing anything such as scrolling down, going to another page, etc. So, what counts as an acceptable bounce rate? This can vary based on location and whether or not you are running PPC ads, which tends to push it up. In general, a reasonable bounce rate is about 50% and 60% if you are running ads. Any higher and you need to look into what’s going on.
Of your website traffic, what percentage is actually booking appointments? If you aren’t tracking this, you have no idea how your website is performing. A 3% conversion rate is fair. 11% is amazing.
