Patient Attraction Episode 82: More Proof That Google Will Know Everything About Everybody One Day

Colin Receveur here to forecast, on March 13, 2014, that someday soon a person will turn on their air conditioner, and an hour later every ad they see online will be about insulation or swimming pools. I’ll tell you why next.

– In January, Google paid $3.2 billion cash for Nest, a company that designs and manufactures sensor-driven, Wi-Fi-enabled, self-learning, programmable thermostats and smoke detectors.

– Why you ask?

– Google is really good about selling advertisers information about users’ behavior.

– That is why when you search for a particular need or service on Google, most of the advertisements you see on other web pages relate to that search.

– But that reach only extended to what you search for online.

– With the purchase of Nest, Google will know when turn your thermostat up or down, or when your fire alarm goes off.

– Nest’s founder says customer information won’t be shared and the company puts puts privacy first, but Google also used to sing that song.

– As one tech industry blogger tweeted, “If your house is burning down you’ll now get gmail ads for fire extinguishers.”

– How does this relate to dental marketing?

– Google is the key to marketing your practice.

– Thanks for tuning in, and until next time, keep moving forward.
