How to have effective dental websites

When you are running a dental practice, it is important to promote it and become visible on the internet. Billions of people around the world use the internet every single day, for endless reasons, this means there are plenty of new people to view your dental websites, therefore becoming a potential new patient. There are a few things you can do to boost the likelihood of your website being seen, and ways to keep people interested whilst they are on your website.

The appearance

How your website looks is massively important in keeping people interested in your website, as the better your website looks, the more professional it seems. Making sure that you have a good mix of information, pictures and colours, can really help someone trust you and your practice more. It may sound small, but if someone came across your website looking for a dental treatment, and your website was messy and unorganised, this could reflect badly on your practice as it looks unprofessional.

User-friendly

As well as looking good, it is important to make sure that your dental websites are smooth and easy to use. This is helpful because it will give the potential new patient a good and inviting experience whilst finding information. If your website is glitchy and slow, and does not function correctly, this can deter someone from continuing to use it. A good use of things such as drop-down categories, easy to find information, and smooth transitions will make your website stand out from the others.

Social media links

Having links to your social media accounts can also really help bring in new patients due to social media being more of a personal experience. When someone looks at your social media page, they will see that you have interacted with people on there and post helpful information, meaning that person will be more likely to contact you for an appointment. Having social media accounts, helps the patient to trust you more as you can connect with people and they can also post reviews on your page which helps massively.

Advertising

Promoting and advertising your website can help massively with gaining visibility. You can do this by using certain SEO methods, paying for advertising, or promoting in your local community. SEO means search engine optimisation, this simply means using certain keywords and links in your text to boost your website to the top of Google. An example of this would be that if you were putting information on your dental websites about Invisalign treatments, using phrases such as “Invisalign in London” or “Invisalign near me” can be helpful as short phrases like this is what people are most likely to search into Google. Paying for advertising is also very effective, and this can be done on a wide range of platforms such as Google, Facebook and Instagram. By doing this, it makes your website more visible to people who are browsing for related topics.
