Your online presence is the cornerstone of your veterinary practice’s digital marketing success. You may have a beautiful website and a smart social marketing strategy, but if what’s being said about you – both as an individual practitioner and as a practice is less than fantastic, it’s likely that you will have trouble getting tails through the door.
The reality is, though, that eventually you’re bound to get a less-than-ideal review. It happens to everyone, eventually; and the best thing you can do is prepare for that day to come so you can handle it with tact and grace.

In 2017, Beyond Indigo aimed to deliver the unexpected, with greater returns and more tails through the door then anticipated. And, just like Santa, we have delivered a few surprises this holiday season – namely the gift of increased business, all wrapped up with a bow on top.

They’re called practitioner listings, and they work a bit differently than Google’s other business listings. Here are some of the basics of how to handle these listings.
