Do you follow the “splatter” theory of dental marketing? Do you throw everything up against the wall to see what sticks? If so, you’re not only creating a mess, you’re throwing money away. After the break, I’ll tell you why more isn’t necessarily better with dental marketing.
– Welcome to the Patient Attraction Podcast.
– I’m Colin Receveur.
– My company, SmartBox Web Marketing, works exclusively with select dentists to help them attract more and better patients.
– I’ve seen a LOT of “pre-SmartBox” marketing plans.
– And the thing that always amazes me is that quite a few of them really aren’t plans.
– I see dentists on TV and radio, in the newspaper, posting flyers, sending out direct mailers, renting billboards, and everything else you can think of.
– Saturating your market with advertising may sound like a great idea, but it’s self-defeating.
– It’s absolutely impossible that every one of those forms of advertising is yielding a good return on investment.
– The ones that aren’t are costing money and not returning enough new dental patients.
– More isn’t better – more marketing that works is better.
– And the only way to KNOW how your marketing is performing is to accurately track where your new patients find you.
– Research shows that patients are lousy historians when it comes to remembering where they heard of you.
– You can’t rely on what they say to accurately track your ROI.
– The only way to do that is through website and telephone tracking.
– At SmartBox, we provide our dentists with our exclusive Zetetics® telephone tracking system.
– Every piece of advertising is given a unique phone number, and calls to that number are automatically forwarded to your office phone.
– The source of each call and the call itself are recorded in an easily accessible database.
– SmartBox reviews every one of those calls to let dentists know whether they’re losing new patients due to the front office staff.
– With Zetetics, you can zero in on what brings you the most new patients and de-emphasize or stop your marketing that’s not working.
– More isn’t better when it comes to dental marketing – better is better.
– Dr. Mitchel Friedman in Lincroft, New Jersey, is a believer.
– “I’ve been a client of Colin Receveur since 2013. I already had a prominent web presence. Colin and his brilliant team were quickly able to consolidate and automate our online programs – email responses, phone tracking and recording, press releases, blog posts, Infusionsoft integration with ortho and implant campaign sequences.”
– Stop losing money on your marketing and attract more and better patients.
