Oral health is critical to general health, but there’s no denying that many people are afraid of dental appointments. As a dentist, do you simply stop there? Obviously not!
Here are tips to help you promote your dental practice:
Know your customer profile.
Before you start your dental marketing campaign, first define which types of patients you accept. You can’t mislead patients. People should be clear about whether you are the right fit for them, thus saving time for both sides.
Use appointment reminders.
People usually welcome caring gestures, especially if they come from a health care provider. Remind your patients before and appointment and thank them after through phone, SMS, or any other convenient method. There are actually free online services for this.
Be active in your community.
You can get attention in your community in many ways, like doing local volunteer work or sponsoring a local sports team. When you demonstrate care for your community, it adds to your good reputation.
Find other businesses to partner with.
Tie-ups with related businesses (for example, if you offer cosmetic dentistry, you can consider partnering with dermatology clinics) open new avenues where new customers can come in. But it’s crucial to know the history of any business you choose to associate with. Remember, their reputation can rub off on you, so it better be a positive one.
Create a good online presence.
Create a prominent web market presence – this is the best thing you can do if you want to promote your dental practice in this day and age. Even a simple website will do. As long as you put your vital info such as your address, phone number, email address etc., it can work fine. You should use social media too, not just to promote your practice but to engage with customers at the same time. Find an effective email marketing strategy and let it work for you. The Internet is the best place to anchor your marketing efforts these days. If you have time or the budget to start hire a writer, start a blog. Or make it a vlog better yet. This is the trend nowadays when it comes to marketing. Besides, who isn’t online? If your practice can’t be there, you’re missing a big deal.
Be on the directory listing.
Finally, make sure your practice is ranked in the offline directory and other options such as Yellow Pages. Provided you have a strong web presence, such directories will help funnel in more patients than any traditional marketing strategies can.
