Businesses must embrace power of the web in an increasingly digital age

While local phone books are still delivered door-to-door, spending dollars from a marketing budget to place a costly ad may not be as effective for businesses today. Consumers now rely on instant Internet access via their personal computers and smartphones to locate everything from local restaurants to hair salons and plumbers, whenever and wherever.

For the business professionals, it has become increasingly important to embrace these emerging online trends in order to capture the attention of patients who benefit from the expediency and expansiveness of the Internet. Phone books may not be diminishing completely, but there are significant advantages to shifting focus from traditional print advertising to online marketing.

Building the foundation

Like building a house, creating a strong online presence requires the creation of a strong foundation. A website should function as the base of a practice’s Internet strategy, the core from which all other marketing initiatives and communications extend. Working with an experienced website and online marketing professional, dentists can create a customized website that works for their practices 24 hours a day, seven days a week to engage existing patients, increase treatment awareness, and generate new patient appointments.

A website is the first impression a patient often has of a dentist, and a critical influencer of whether he or she contacts the office. It is a practice’s storefront to online users. A great-looking website with the right words and features can positively affect a potential patient’s perception of your practice. It’s about shaping and molding your reputation in the online world to convince potential patients that your practice has the upper hand in the local marketplace. You create your story with your website — the options are boundless!

Reaching your target market

A sizeable advantage of online marketing compared to traditional print marketing is the ability to measure results in real time. It can be difficult to assess the direct sales impact from a print ad, but with search marketing, dentists can easily track the effectiveness of campaigns, and concentrate efforts on those that provide the highest return on investment through advanced analytics and performance tracking.

A potential client may glance only once at as ad in the phone book. But with a strong search engine optimization strategy, a website can gain long-term exposure and continuously appear front and center on a prospect’s screen every time a search is performed for the targeted keyword. Additionally, businesses do not have to wait weeks to see a significant boost in appointments. With an online paid advertising campaign, businesses can experience real-time results and instant conversion ability.

"Always on" marketing for your practice

The Internet has made it possible for businesses to promote their services in a manner that is "always on,". Apart from word-of-mouth and leveraging personal relationships with existing clients, a website is the most important marketing tool a business can have.

Getting started

If you already have a website, now is the time to review its effectiveness. If your web design is outdated, upgrade to a fresh look that clearly conveys your goals and professionalism. You should also update your existing content and messaging to ensure office information, service details, and staff bios are current.

It’s also important to perform searches periodically on Google and other major search engines. Who shows up on the first page when you search for locally? Is your business listed at the top? Are you even on the first page? Achieving a prominent position on search engines is key to attracting new clients through your website. A professional website and online marketing company can assist you in launching a Web presence with a focused search marketing plan for optimal performance and online exposure.

Factors to consider for a good web design

The Internet landscape is changing daily. Some websites are experiencing an increased amount of sales due to great SEO practices. Some are falling through thinking that they have a great website when indeed they have implemented unwanted web design elements and done bad website design. You will find below some factors to consider for a good web design.

Nothing will hurt your site or reputation more than a lousy website experience. Be helpful, courteous and generous.

To give people a reason to return, and to improve your search rankings, be sure to update your site regularly. Even a seasonal message can help.

If you want people to take the next step and contact you, include a call to action, such as “Sign up for our free newsletter.

Within the next year or two, most people will access the web with mobile devices. Make sure your site provides a good visitor experience using limited bandwidth and a small screen.

Content is still king, so make sure yours is easy to read and understand. Avoid jargon and acronyms.

Structure yourwebsite so there is a natural progression to the pages. Start with general pages and enable visitors to drill down to get more specific information.

Hyperlinks are a great way to build value and search ranking. Use them to help visitors access parts of your site easier and to build linking relationships with appropriate websites.

But if you insist on packing your content with keywords as often as possible for the sake of search engine optimization (SEO), it can result in less valuable content and an unsatisfactory visitor experience.

People are used to looking for familiar page names on a site, such as About Us, Products and Services. Trying to be clever or cute can frustrate visitors looking for specific information.

Life’s complicated enough without trying to figure out how to use a website. Keep the design simple, straightforward and easy to use.
