We meet so many dentists who are just completely over insurance companies and their limitations. If you take the time to break it down, the pricing restrictions they impose can be very costly. That’s why some dentists are ditching insurance and running their practices on their own terms. How are they doing it? With the help of Dr. Lee Brown and Freedom Dental Coaching.
Have you recently tried to search a business, service provider, or medical professional on the internet only to find that they don’t have any real online presence to speak of? Maybe you can find the phone number and address on Google, but no website. Maybe you find them on Facebook, but there hasn’t been a post in over a year. Maybe you locate a website, but it does not contain much useful information other than contact details. How likely are you, as a consumer, to trust that business or professional?
When it comes to marketing any business, data never lies. However, it is easy to let our personal tastes and inner voices prevail, even if we do not have the data to back it up. The business owner’s opinions certainly have a place in devising their marketing plans, but they should never become an obstacle to success. And that is why I always use hard numbers to guide my marketing plans rather than gut feelings.
Summer is drawing to a close, and fall will soon be here. It might seem a little early to start thinking about the end of the year, but when it comes to marketing, this is the perfect time to begin planning year-end and holiday campaigns to avoid stress and prevent things from falling through the cracks. Here are 3 things that every dental practice should be planning for now to be well prepared for the last quarter of the year.
Our team is small and very close knit, and we want people outside of MDA to get to know us a little more so they can see why we all work so well together. Every so often, we highlight one of the team members to show how special they are to us and our clients. So, please allow us to introduce Melissa Andrade, one of our hard-working project managers.
Patient success is the mark of a successful dental practice. There is no better way to prove to the public that you’re as good as you claim to be than by showing real results with real patients.
In a perfect world, a marketing agency isn’t just another vendor that your practice hires to perform a service. A marketing agency is a partner that understands the unique characteristics of your practice and knows how to leverage them to create effective strategies that produce measurable results. But why only in a perfect world? Why not in the real world? Any marketing agency you choose should be able to work with your practice in complete synergy. Unfortunately, that is not always how it goes, as MDA CAB member and highly respected owner practitioner Dr. Lee Brown explains in this informative video that you won’t want to skip.
A lot of dentists feel that marketing isn’t all that important in dentistry. Perhaps they’re used to the traditional word-of-mouth way of doing things. Most of the dentists who do see the benefit in marketing their practices don’t tend to care that much about the quality of the marketing they’re putting out.
Of all the available digital marketing options, which one is the most effective, the most pervasive and the most important? It’s a trick question. Here’s the real question: Is it possible to achieve all of your dental practice’s marketing goals with a single digital marketing channel?
Dental practices continue to rely heavily on referrals, and each practice needs a strong referral network in place as part of their new-patient pipeline. It may seem odd that a digital marketing company is advocating for an analogue approach like a referral network, but it makes sense if you consider referrals as one piece of a practice’s overall marketing strategy. Having a robust referral network will contribute to a practice’s success and enhance its digital marketing efforts.
