Dental marketing strategies

Local Awareness Facebook Ads 

While it’s important to market on a broad spectrum for your practice, it’s even more important that you market to who is important. You do not want to be showing advertisements outside of a 30-mile radius. 

Local awareness ads are a great way to reach people that are near you, and you can use the map card to share locally relevant details about your dental business, like the address, distance to the business, hours of operation, and even get a “get directions” link. It’s important for every business to have a call to action,  a call to action is a prompt to get an immediate response from your customer. Your call to action could even be a call button that we specifically make for your customers to reach you or make an appointment. 

Click to call ads 

The main goal of dental marketing outreach is to get patients to call or book an appointment. Click-to-call ads are available not only through Facebook but also through Google Ads. This extension can be added to existing ads, or we can create a call-only campaign. 

We could also limit this to mobile Call-Only Ads. According to Google, most healthcare-related searches are made from a smartphone. Also, one in twenty searches on Google is health-related information. We can help you set this up with Google Ads. 

Demographic Targeting 

 

Demographic Targeting is vital to a marketing effort. In this industry, it’s important to note that 90% of all dental buying decisions come from women. Thus, your practice should be targeting women that have recently bought children’s clothes. The two most important tools your practice can use to target this demographic is Facebook and Google Ads. In these ad campaigns, we can choose to target potential customers by language, relationship status, employment, income, and interests.

Remarketing Ads 

Remarketing is often described as “easy money.” This type of marketing helps you reach potential customers who have visited your website, or practice, by serving specific ads to help recapture those potential customers. If your business collects email addresses, we can leverage these through customer matches on Facebook and Google Ads. This helps patients see an ad to entice them back to your practice again, maybe a reminder for a cleaning or teeth whitening.

Google & Waze Ads 

Advertisements on GPS applications are as important as any, giving clients the directions right to your practice. When a client, for example, searches for the word “Dentist near me”, it’s important that your practice shows up. 

Like Google Maps, you can also directly advertise on Waze. Waze is a community-based application, advertisement is a little different-customers near your business will see a “digital billboard” appear on the map, as well as in the search results. They can navigate to your dental practice or save the location for later.

Instagram 

Many influencers use Instagram to promote teeth whitening, and orthodontists can use it to show off the before-and-after pictures. Creating an Instagram can show off unique techniques, and advertise to potential patients through social media. It’s important to keep your practice at the top of your customers’ minds. 

Email Marketing 

An essential to any business that wants to have success in marketing is email marketing. Imagine a world in which your patients could email the practice when they wanted to make an appointment. Your receptionist could respond with a few timing options, and ta-da, an appointment is made and on the calendar. Even better, you can send bills this way, reminder emails, and cute “we haven’t seen you in a while!” emails.
