Do you remember dental marketing before the digital age when it was made up of TV commercials and print advertising? Back in the latter half of the 20th century, the big dental consumer companies used catch phrases and jingles in their advertisements, some you would probably remember today if you heard them again.
Not many people think of going to the dentist as fun. As with most health practitioners, the dentist is usually thought of as a serious and professional place. Marketing your dental practice, however, can attract more people with the use of some light hearted humor. There are many, shall we say not so fun brands, that spice up their marketing to stand out and get noticed. Geico Insurance, for example, took a dull subject and created amusing advertisements that are well recognized across multiple media channels. Not all practices may be feel up to this type of marketing but if you like to think of yourself as fun, laid back and you are willing to stand out then a campaign that grabs attention may be for you.
When you write a book that becomes a #1 best seller on Amazon, your first reaction might be to pop the champagne corks and start celebrating.
