By   |  January 21, 2015

While building and maintaining a successful practice, a digital presence might not be a physician's top priority. But given today's Web-centric world, online branding is a must. As with any small business owner, it is crucial that physicians build an attractive, cohesive brand that fits in line with their practice's philosophy and goals.

Whether you're just getting started or looking to take your branding efforts to the next level, here are some key points to consider.

Elements Of A Cohesive Digital Brand

  • Logo: While a logo isn't everything, it is the identifying symbol of your brand, and should be designed accordingly. Logo creation should be approached with great thought and execution. Its important to consider what you want your brand to communicate. Once the logo is created, make sure it is featured prominently on your website as well as across your practice's social media channels.
