As we have moved into a prominently digital age, for the success of a business, it’s extremely important for you to follow forward in that same direction. The new world of digital marketing is a little bit scary, but mostly exciting. Exciting, because the opportunities are endless. There are so many new ways for you to get your company name out there, grow your business, and develop your brand, you just need to know how [which may require some help from the experts]. One of the biggest mistakes companies make these days, is assuming that their business really has no option but to thrive via the ‘old fashion’ marketing strategies. Or that their company is the type of business that is only able to be marketed by word-of-mouth, etc. But that’s where you’re wrong. A perfect example? Dentistry.
Many dentists and dentist’s offices don’t understand the power of new media marketing, and the importance of the online representation of their business… but it could be the deciding factor of a potential patient. Say for example, you do rely solely on word-of-mouth, but what exactly do you think happens when someone hears about your business through a friend-of-a-friend that’s a patient? They look it up. The authenticity and attractiveness of your brand increases dramatically by having a successful and updated online presence. Having a well-designed and user-friendly website for your services ups your credibility vastly. If a potential patient makes their way to your website and it’s up-to-date, aesthetically pleasing, and informally useful, the first impression they have of you will be similarly pleasant.
Most of us lead busy lives, this is important to keep in mind when understanding the perspective of your consumer. So, how can you appeal to that consumer based on that perception? The options are endless. Your website should not only be up to date in terms of design and aesthetics, but it’s also extremely important for the content of your website to be continuously updated as your dentistry undergoes any changes, i.e., an address change, email change, etc. But how can you take this a step further? Schedule changes. Many businesses in similar fields are now taking advantage of the technology that allows their patients to make, change, and cancel appointments on their website. This is one of the many additions your website could feature that will elude credibility, modernization, trustworthiness, patient empathy, and more.
Having a professional and updated website should be a high priority for your dentist practice. Yes, we are told not to judge a book by its cover, but in this case, your website is your cover, and people will judge you by it. If your website isn’t up to date, then why should a potential patient assume your practice’s techniques and equipment are? Your website is one of the most important marketing tools to utilize as we have quickly moved into this digital era.
