Use the New Year to Your Advantage

On New Year’s Eve, it’s all about the ball dropping in Times Square, fireworks with friends and neighbors, and stealing a kiss from your loved ones at midnight. When we wake up on New Year’s Day, it’s a whole new story. The first day of the new year provides an opportunity for everyone to start fresh: We will eat better, make a new commitment to exercise, and save more money, among other resolutions we make. When it comes to the New Year, there is no better time to capitalize on the instincts we have to be a better version of ourselves.

New Year, New You

Many of the top resolutions — such as quitting smoking or losing weight — have to do with health and appearance. Since we know that dental health is directly linked to both, why not take advantage? Goals like having whiter teeth, straighter teeth, better breath, or even following through with semi-annual cleanings fit right in with “going to the gym 5 times a week,” only they’re more realistic because YOU can help patients achieve them.

A Marketing Countdown

There are many ways you can help people have a healthier smile and feel better about their appearance this new year. Here are just a few suggestions:

5 …
Create Facebook or Google ads with wording that appeals to those interested in feeling and looking better this year.

Offer free consultations for a limited time.
