More than Just Facebook: Secondary Social Media Platforms for Veterinary Marketing
In the ever-changing world of social media and veterinary marketing, it can be tough to get a handle on everything that you need to manage. Sure, we’ve all heard of Facebook – but what about all those Twitters and Snapchats? There are many more secondary social media platforms than just Facebook, and each has its own strengths and weaknesses. While these platforms might not have the granular control over ad targeting that Facebook does, they each serve a particular niche and can be great complement to Facebook, especially when reaching younger demographics.
Let’s look a bit more closely at three additional social media platforms and how to best use them to reach your intended audience with the content they crave.
Retrospective Results: Beyond Indigo’s Top 10 Blogs of 2017
With 2017 officially on the books, many of us are setting intentions for the year to come. The ceremonial changing of the calendar offers us an opportunity to reflect on the results and revelations of the past year and to use that insight in planning for the year ahead.
In Beyond Indigo’s blogging department those reflections and results manifest as Top 10 lists – both for the company and for those clients who subscribe to our blogging service. Compiling these lists is an interesting task. Not only can I see the readership and growth rates for our blogs, but I can also see which topics resonated with our readers (and which ones didn’t) and use that information to shape the editorial calendar in the months to come. Talk about real results in action.
This year, Beyond Indigo’s company blog (the one you’re reading right now) saw a 98% growth rate in readership and accounted for approximately 30% of our website’s total traffic. So what posts drew you in and kept you coming back for more…?
A Feline Festivus
You don’t have to be a Seinfeld fan to celebrate feline Festivus. A made-up holiday celebrated on December 23, Festivus has three main components: the pole, the airing of grievances (only during/after a tasty, meaty meal), and feats of strength. What’s not to love for a curious, clever cat?
Whatever ways you choose to celebrate, your cat probably wants a front row seat and we’ve got the best ways you can make the most out of this grand event.
Delivering the Unexpected: The Gift of Results-Driven Veterinary Marketing
The holidays are a strange mix of emotions and expectations, aren’t they? People hope for the best, want to be surprised with the unexpected, focus on the positive, and try to bring out the best in themselves and others.
Marketing is much the same way; but in the past, people have tended to focus on the negative aspects of marketing, instead of the positive. Most folks generally perceive marketing as a black hole, assume the worst, and just wish the whole darn thing would go away. But gone are the days of the YellowPages ad, when all you had to do was write a check once a year and decide which size ad you were going to buy.
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.
Beyond Indigo Webinar Series: The Four Ingredients of Search Engine Success
Maximizing performance in the digital space can be hard if you don’t know where to focus your attention – especially when it comes to Search Engine Optimization.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is based on a complex set of algorithms put forth by Google that are designed to help direct users towards the search results that best match their query. To help make sense of all things SEO, Beyond Indigo has developed a few simple four-ingredient recipes for maximizing success.
Best Keyword Match Type Strategy for Veterinarians
When creating a text ad in your AdWords pay-per-click marketing campaign, you can select broad match, modified broad match, phrase match, or exact match for your keyword match type.
Each match type in your Google Adwords Account has its advantages and disadvantages, but do you know what they are, or what they mean?
How Do Keyword Match Types Affect Your AdWords Results?
Match types can have a major impact on your account’s performance: they’re the control you use to determine exactly which search queries you’re bidding on. As you determine which match types to use for each keyword, there are a few key components to consider:
Landing Pages: What Are They And Why Do I Need One?
If you are working with one of Beyond Indigo Pets’ Pay-Per-Click Specialists or Social Marketing Analysts, you’ve likely heard the term ‘Landing Page’ bandied about. But do you know what landing pages are, and why they’re important for your marketing campaigns?
What Is a Landing Page?
A landing page is where a visitor will “land” on your website when following an AdWords or other specific-purpose marketing link. A landing page can either be a specific service page within your website, or be built out separately if the ad is specifically targeted or specialized (e.g.: for a particular promotion or event).
While landing pages can be used for many different purposes, the main goal is to entice visitors to use the service that landed them on that page to begin with. For example, a veterinary practice that offers premium dental services and is targeting its PPC marketing toward those services, would want potential clients following that AdWords link to land on their dental services page, specifically.

“Near Me” Searches and How to Rank on Google
People demand instant, accurate, and helpful information on Google. Because of this, it likely comes as no surprise that Google has had to make many complex updates to its algorithm to keep up. Gone are the days of “cookie-cutter” search results. Google near me now strives to deliver the most customized, local search results possible. A Brooklyn pet owner, for example, searching for “veterinarians nearby” will get totally different results than a pet owner in the Bronx searching the same keyword phrase – all thanks to Google’s local-search result algorithms.
When it comes to the veterinary industry, near me searches has many applications. A pet owner who has recently moved to a new city and is looking for a new family practice veterinarian, for example, may Google “veterinarian near me.” Meanwhile, a person worried about the chocolate their new puppy just consumed may hurriedly Google “nearby emergency vet.” It is crucial that your veterinary clinic or hospital show up in positions 1-3 during these deciding moments.
