With the growing prevalence of retail dentistry, solo practitioners and small group practices are at risk of becoming commoditized in the eyes of the patient. If the perception is that the standard of care and experience is the same everywhere why wouldn’t you choose the practice with the most flexible hours and lowest prices? To avoid being commoditized and forced to compete solely on convenience or affordability you must communicate why you’re worth paying a little extra for. That means differentiating your practice from low-fee and other local competition to attract more private-pay patients and patients who understand the value you provide. This webinar will demonstrate how to accomplish this by solidifying your online reputation, connecting with your current and prospective patients on the media they use, and educating your target audience using the most effective online marketing tools available today.
After this lecture you will be able to:
Discuss how digital marketing can be used to introduce, educate and build trust with a practice’s target audience members
Explain how all the digital and analog “touch points,” or ways a prospective new patient interacts with your practice work together
Activate current patients to market for the practice, serving as ambassadors that refer the practice to friends
