Miranda Smith

Founder

In 2016 I founded Marketing for Health Practitioners, a boutique marketing agency focused on working with small to medium private practices to help them with the marketing essentials they need to grow and create a long term thriving practice.

I understand that as a health practitioner and practice owner, the idea of having to market yourself can sometimes feel quite uncomfortable. An important aspect of my role as a marketing coach is to help my clients change the narrative when it comes to marketing, and help them see that when using value-based marketing, marketing is simply making sure that people and their loved ones make good healthcare decisions, and choose a practitioner that’s right for them.

What was really important to me when creating my agency was to also incorporate training and resources, and to empower practice owners with marketing skills and knowledge to give them more control over their marketing and practice success.

Over the past 5 years we've worked with a variety of practices and health practitioners across Australia and the USA, including Fertility Specialists, Cardiologists, Acupuncturists, Nutritionists, Aged Care Providers, Psychologists and other mental health practitioners. As you have probably gathered my main passion is mental health, so in 2020 we decided to only work with mental health practitioners.

As a boutique agency, we are a small team, and work with a small number of clients at one time to ensure we can be highly accessible and give our clients our undivided attention.
