Dentists Who Don’t Do Follow-up Right Lose Prospects

Barring dental emergencies, the decision to choose a dentist is rarely a snap decision. Google has noted that people consult an average of 10.4 online sources of information before making a buying decision.

If you’re going to get your share, and maybe more, of the prospects in your market, you have to remain in front of them until they’re ready to choose. People who visit your website once ...

Dental Email Strategies That Work

Accordingly to Google, people consult an average of 10.4 online sources of information before making a decision to purchase goods or services. That’s a mixed blessing for dentists.

How’s That Monthly Dental Advertising Thing Going?

I’ve met many dentists who can’t escape that “hamster on a treadmill” feeling. They’d prefer to spend more time solving patients’ dental problems. Instead, they have to take time away from clinical practice every single month to figure out their advertising for the next month. This is not why dentists spend four years in dental school. Not only that, marketing wasn’t on the curriculum. Not only is a traditional advertising approach annoying to dentists, its value is questionable. Dentists advertise on price, specials, coupons, and availability. So does every other dentist ...

Your Online Dental Content Should Guide Your Prospects

The decision to purchase a product or service, or to choose a dentist, is a journey. The decision begins with the identification of a need or want. That may come as a sudden realization, such as the rapid onset of dental pain. Or the realization may grow slowly over time when a prospect has faced an unattractive smile for too long. The identification doesn’t necessarily lead to immediate action. Even patients in significant pain can delay seeking help for any number of reasons. There’s a period of deliberation where the pros and cons of taking action are weighed. Eventually, ...
