Title: Marketing Websites and Domain Names
Post by: williamportor on March 11, 2021, 05:33:05 PM
A suggestion to all those who have recently launched their medical billing business, or are thinking about it: Professional looking websites and domain names can be helpful in marketing your business, but they are not going to be a major factor in your success (or lack thereof) In the 7 years since I started my business, and having spoken with several thousand medical professionals since then, I can count on one hand those who have even asked about my website. JMHO - The best ways to attract new clients are: 1. Do excellent customer service work for your existing clients 2. Face to face contacts (door to door) 3. Direct mail. 4. Distributing your business cards to clinics. If you have a nice website and/or domain name, and are happy with it, that's great, but for those who don't - don't worry about it.  I'm bringing this up now, because we're not living in the best of economic times, so don't let the expense of a flashy website and/or domain name stand in the way of building your business. A freebee website and Gmail account for email will be enough to get you started. If you're set up and ready to bill, then grab your business cards, get out there and market!    :)

Thanks for sharing Williamportor.  Number 1 on your list is definitely by far the most important!

What are some the free website companies out there? I recently opened and I did have a website but I let it lapse (due to lack of funds). Please and thank you for the info. I also agree that #1 is the most important. Thank you again.

You can do a wordpress site.  They have a free option.  You can make it look very much like a traditional website.  Then once funds start coming you can purchase a URL and redirect it to the wordpress site.

I use WIX, but some of these will do nicely:
