Market Image, a team of healthcare professionals and internet-savvy marketers, is extending its marketing services to medical tourism facilities around the world.
Founded a decade ago, it originally just worked with Canadian healthcare providers. It has developed websites for the international pharmaceutical industry, medical clinics, and pharmacies. The company restricts its clients to those in the global healthcare industry. It offers a variety of marketing services including web site design, internet marketing, search engine optimization, PR services and a Canadian based call centre service.
The company now wants to expand to provide services for hospitals, surgeries and agencies worldwide.
“Medical tourism is big business. The patients are there. The doctors and hospitals are there. We use our real-world marketing experience and knowledge of the healthcare industry to inform patients, insurance companies, employers and government market segments about these international facilities. We make sure prospects know that these medical professionals understand the unique needs of foreign patients and they are open for business,” says Market Image marketing manager Victor Tiongco.
The company offers packaged services like its Seahorse service, which includes 12 press releases per year, call centre services, 1-800-number on website for North American patients, and two blog entries per month.
