Digital marketing is important for any business to succeed in this age of digital technology. Dental marketing is even more important, because although everyone understands how necessary it is to visit their dentist, here in the UK, more than a third of the adult population suffer from a significant degree of dental anxiety or complete a dental phobia. There are many people who wake up and look in the mirror every morning and wish they had whiter teeth, straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile, but are afraid to do anything about it.
With good dental marketing you will be able to find these people, calm their nerves, encourage them to consider the different treatments and procedures that are available for them and finally convince them to book an appointment and visit you in person. Previously when people were thinking about improving their smiles they would have to visit the dentist in person to be able to find out more. With Google available at everyone’s fingertips a lot of people are finding out about dental treatments and procedures without having to approach a dentist, but then letting it slide to the back of their mind whilst they continue to daydream about beautiful teeth. When a prospective patient from your area types in their dental needs, your dental practice should come up on the search results page, so that you have the opportunity to encourage them to consider dental treatment more seriously and to book an appointment to visit you.
How to create a stronger online presence
To do this you need to make sure that you have a fantastic website in place and that you have a strong online presence. You need to have techniques in place which give you good search engine optimisation or SEO making your website more visible and more easily accessible, so that the patient is encouraged to find out more about what you have to offer. On a visit to your website they need to be able to find encouraging and reassuring information which addresses them directly and helps calm their nerves so they consider dental treatment with you. For nervous patients it is key that you have a separate section which addresses them directly and explains how far dental technology has come, persuading them there is no need to be afraid of the dentist anymore. Once you have attracted the prospective patient they need to be encouraged to explore the whole of your website so that they find out all the information they need. There should also be plenty of prompts for them to leave their contact details with you, so that you can continue to nurture their thoughts and encourage them to eventually book an appointment and visit you in person.
