Google Trends Can Help Guide Practice Marketing Efforts

Online Tools To Understand Patient Needs

Google Trends, a free online tool, can help medical aesthetic practices identify patient interest in specific procedures both by region and season. In the August 2019 issue of the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, Jonathan D. Tijerina, et al, reviewed Google Trends search terms from January 2004 to December 2017. Then compared that data to annual procedure statistics reports of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) from 2006 to 2017 and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) from 2004 to 2017.
