Original High-Quality Photography Boosts Consumer Confidence

February 02, 2021

The use of high-quality original photos in marketing has not only become a common practice but is an essential component you will need when it comes to Google authentication and authority. Even though consumers recognize healthcare practices as places they can trust and hold accountable, the website photos may not reflect the professionalism they promise. With advancements and frequent updates in Google’s ranking algorithms, businesses must continually improve and adhere to these requirements, or they may be left behind.

Google Trust Signals

Google TrustRank allows Google to assess trust signals and combat web spam by evaluating whether these signals are legitimate. Trust signals are online elements displayed by businesses or brands that automatically assure consumers of their authenticity. Logos, guarantee symbols, social proofs, and membership stamps are all examples of qualified trust signals.

Patients who find trust symbols on business sites are more likely to click through or initiate contact as they provide an alternative to fall back on if the consumer is unsatisfied. Original photos qualify as trust signals as they communicate authenticity and, if authenticated by Google, receive an “assignee” attachment to Google.

Trust signals can come in the form of photos such as:

  • Interior Space
  • Exterior Space
  • Patient Waiting Area
  • Staff
  • Operating Room

Providing photos of other essential areas or additional spaces provided for consumers, such as parking space and playrooms, enhances trust and satisfaction. Consumers who feel they are viewing real, accurate, original photography are more likely to click through and visit the business website. It is a good idea to post as many photos of your practice as possible and eliminate any guessing on the part of the consumer.
