Partnerships are certainly worth celebrating!

We are happy to celebrate Top Practices’ anniversary -- 10 years and counting! We are proud to be a part of the Top Practices team, helping the company, and the medical practices we serve, continue to grow. While Top Practices has been hard at work coaching, developing, and marketing, the Virtual Marketing Director Services (VMD) team has been busy taking the internet side of things to the next level! When we first started out, we saw a need for helping doctors optimize their websites, but quickly learned that we could help with so much more. From implementing responsive website designs that are user friendly for all devices, to writing content, producing videos, designing graphics, creating email campaigns, engaging on social media, optimizing local search, and the list goes on and on! One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is our goal to help you succeed online and off, in every way we can.

Top Practice’s programs and services continue to grow, including all that VMD offers, and that means that we can continue to help you grow as well. In fact, our partnership with you is something to celebrate, too!

So, whether you’ve been with VMD from the beginning, or you’re new to our services, thank you for choosing and working with us. We look forward to helping you with continued success!

Go team!

Why This Matters for Your Practice

Ask Away
What does a content strategy involve?

When we do a content strategy, we first look at our current data to see what pages on your website are working best, and which are not doing as well. This helps us to determine the areas we can build on, and those that could use some extra oomph. This information doesn’t just apply to written content on your website, either. A strong content strategy incorporates all aspects of your marketing plan, including social media, email marketing, linking strategies, and more. We make sure it all works together to achieve your goals.

Tip Time:

You can help in building an awesome content strategy by providing us with your goals, what types of patients you want to see, any changes to your practice, and any areas on which you want to focus.
