Areas Served / Scope of Work

Our SEO and SEM efforts are largely focused on initiatives identified as institutional priorities by UTMB leadership. We do advise, review sites and share strategies with broader areas of the university. For online marketing, most of our energy and dollars are dedicated to driving clinical revenue in specific types of services with demonstrated capacity and where patient preference is known to be heavily influenced by web research. The group also supports other research and outreach initiatives that fall under the scope of the Office of Marketing and Communications, and coordinates data sharing with the market research team. Our quality and traffic analysis tools are available to all areas.
