Ever wonder why some doctors get their name in print or appear on TV? Many have earned this special coverage with experience, reputation and luck. Others may have hired a publicist and created an effective PR campaign. Why would a doctor want to hire a publicity or communications expert? Hiring a publicist isn't it only for doctors wanting to appear on "Extreme Makeover" or launch their own product line. Public relations campaigns can be used by physicians wanting to secure coverage in regional or national publications, to increase community reputation and market their practice. The experts at MomMD can assist doctors who may want to:
- Enhance their reputation in their field or local community.
- Become an 'expert' commentator or writer for TV or print.
- Inspire others with their unique story or service.
- Write articles for magazines or newspapers - using a ghost writer or editor.
- Market their new book, product, research finding or study.
- Appear on television.
Did you know many of today's most well known brands began without spending money on advertising (for example, Starbucks)? Marketing and advertising are great, but good PR can be better. Good publicity has serious business benefits and is not just for those wishing to become the next 'celebrity doctor' or diet guru. Participating in a PR campaign can be fun and lead to opportunities one might never have imagined.
Over the past five years, MomMD and its members have secured coverage and interviews on national TV news, local TV stations and in national publications like The Wall St Journal, Washington Post, WebMD and many more. MomMD has developed an extensive media list and team of expert publicists who can position your story to the appropriate parties.
