In the meantime, check out our top marketing tips to help you attract your new ideal patients in 2021: 

 

Tip 1: Great Leadership and Communication

 

Every practice needs great leadership. As a dental practice owner, you need to set aside time in your calendar to create, and then articulate to your team, a clear vision for your practice in 2021. 

 

At Dental Focus, we can help you build a strong marketing strategy, create the right focus for your practice, and stick to the plan before reassessing later in the year. The most successful practices that we work in partnership with have great principal dentists driving them forward. These principals understand the importance of getting the right marketing strategy in place for success. Whether it be your website, SEO or Social Media.

 

Tip 2: People Trust People

 

Remember that people trust people. It sounds cliché, but it’s very true! In all of your advertising, whether it’s on your website, in your social media posts, on dental flyers, your prospect patients want to see that there are real people behind the words and images. They want to know that you are the experts at what you do and can deliver great customer care and service. Personalise your communication as much as you can. And remember, try not to bore the public with just dentally related posts, personalise and keep things interesting!

 

Tip 3: Stay Compliant

 

GDC have their latest guidelines on advertising, using social media and what you should be aware of. Make sure that your whole dental team who deals with any of your marketing is aware of the advertising guidance and social media guidance. Our team at Dental Focus have a strict checklist that we use internally before posting anything online for our clients.

 

Tip 4: TouchPoints

 

Did you know that your new prospect patients need to see or hear about your practice at least 14-16 times before they consider taking up your dental services? This is how long it takes to build trust through marketing. This could be through word-of-mouth from another patient, through your website, seeing your practice on social media, flyer drops, phone calls, or Ads on Google/Facebook etc. In 2020, we saw a huge rise in the use of social media by dental practices, making the online space even more crowded and competitive! Make sure your practice is showcased online consistently to promote your brand awareness.

 

At Dental Focus, our team can help you streamline your advertising for brand awareness or lead generation for specific dental services, such as Invisalign or Implants to a targeted audience. This focused advertising for lead generation allows you to track and see the return on investment much more easily.

 

Tip 5: Don’t forget Google

 

Search engine optimisation (SEO) is a must in 2021. If you want a steady stream of new patients, your practice needs to be found at the top of Google Page 1. This doesn’t happen overnight, so plan to start early to reap the rewards. Start thinking about where you want your practice to be found in 1-2 years time, and you should be starting your practice SEO groundwork now. This is a long-game investment to build your online presence on Google, which is your asset. Our team of experts can help you get there.

 

Take your dental practice to the next level this year. 

If you would like to stay focused for 2021 and get the right marketing strategy, book a complimentary consultation with a member of our team.
