Chapter 5: How to Market Your Business With

How does MD marketing work? In this chapter, we’ll outline your MD marketing options, how much it costs and service highlights. First, let’s look at your marketing options.

  1. Profile Listing

When a customer is considering a business, they need to know basic information right away. If they become frustrated while searching for this information, it’s likely they’ll look elsewhere. Profiles should be easy to find and filter.

A profile listing through MD includes all the basics such as contact information, hours of operation, traveling range, whether you’re accepting patients, steps to get started, products or services available and more. There’s a space for a company bio to illuminate your unique characteristics and set yourself apart from the competition.

Also, customers can leave reviews and share your profile on social media. All of this is featured in an organized, user-friendly format, incorporating your business with MD’s established name and brand appeal.

  1. Banners

You can opt for banner ads on the MD site so patients can see your products as they search for information or resources. Whether site visitors click on your banner or not, your brand is still going to get noticed.

For example, in 2014, Google found that banner ads for the Android Wear campaign increased brand recall by 15.8 percent. Compared to other forms of advertising, banner ads are an effective way to catch attention and lead consumers directly to your site to purchase products or learn more about your company. Pricing for banner ads is customized based on your needs. Please contact Marijuana Doctors to learn more.

  1. Sponsorship

You can gain attention through MD’s social media sites or blog posts without the fear of getting removed or banned. You’ll also get to network with other cannabis companies, which is one of the most effective ways to grow your customer base and business.

  1. State-Specific Email Blasts

Email marketing is a highly effective way to quickly target a large group of supporters and prompt action. With MD you’ll be able to send state-targeted messages to subscribers. Email is a great way to market your business because:

  • Email is an easy, inexpensive way to reach mobile customers.
  • Many online shoppers subscribe to store or product emails to stay informed.
  • Email marketing is versatile and can be personalized with a unique message.

You can also send national email blasts through MD — whatever you need to meet your business goals.
