One of our longtime clients and a trusted CAB member, Dr. David Pearce, recently shared with us his experience with digital marketing as a dental professional. We asked him what qualities are important in a marketing agency, and this is what he had to say:
Dentists of all people understand that there’s a lot more that goes into the daily operation of a business than meets the eye. The front of the house, so to speak, is what the patients see, but it’s the behind-the-scenes that is really the lifeblood of the practice. An effectively planned, implemented, and maintained marketing strategy will pay dividends that far outweigh the initial investment and will continue to do so for many years.
The post-pandemic marketing landscape can be sensitive from a marketing perspective, but there are definitely opportunities for dentists to serve patients whose dental health has suffered over the last two years. Dental implants is one of those opportunities.
Marketing can mean different things to different people, and how someone defines it often has a lot to do with their personal and professional experience.
One of our clients recently wrote an article about how to build a successful dental practice, and we think he hit the nail on the head when he explained that marketing is a key factor in his success.
Prior to working with us, many of the dental practices we meet with aren’t certain how to know whether their marketing campaigns are really working. One of the questions we get asked most often is how to track what their campaigns are actually producing. To answer that question, we would like to talk a little bit about Marketing ROI — what it is, how to calculate it, and why you should be tracking it.
I’ve known from a young age that I wanted to be in marketing — didn’t know it would be dental marketing though. The Super Bowl ads I saw every year growing up were a huge influence on my choice to get into advertising. I’ve always been fascinated by their sheer creativity and their ability to engage viewers in a way that creates a lasting impression. It is no mistake that Super Bowl commercials have become the gold standard in advertising, and we can all learn a little something from them.
Instagram is one very popular social media platform — it has over a billion users. We love it and we think more dental practices should be using it as part of their digital marketing strategy. It’s an easy way to create awareness around your practice’s brand and reach more potential patients. Just follow the steps we have outlined for you here, and you’ll be on your way to becoming an Instagram aficionado in no time.
Women are making their mark in every traditionally male-dominated industry, from finance to space travel, and definitely in dentistry. Where just a decade ago about 24% of all dentists were women, now that figure is closer to 35%, and women graduating from dental school nearly equal the number of men.
Don’t make these ghastly mistakes. Heed my warning before it’s too late! Muahahahaha… Just kidding. Every dental practice has had a marketing setback or two. The good news is mistakes like the ones I just described don’t have to turn into a horrible nightmare.
