3 Tips for Marketing Your Practice Around the Holidays
Hustle and bustle are trademarks of the holiday season. During this special time of year we add extra parties, errands, duties and tasks to our normally busy schedule. But we also open up to wonder, fellowship and... marketing. What?!? It’s really not so hard to believe. Beginning with Black Friday the holidays are a commercial season of buying and giving. Over the years we’ve programmed ourselves to be open to good cheer, holiday greetings and sales pitches. The most successful pitches generally combine the things that make this season so wonderful – family, fellowship, and good cheer. And social media is a great place to experience all three.

5 Rules for Increased Facebook Engagements

However, if you follow a few simple rules you can boost your dental practice’s presence on Facebook with increased likes, shares and followers.

To put your dental practice on a lasting and healthy growth trajectory, a qualified internet marketing company will devise a strategy that involves many touchpoints, multiple channels and a built in plan to evolve with your target audience. SEO, by itself, can lead to marked growth and recognition for your practice. But there are other marketing strategies that should be considered in helping your dental practice get greater visibility within search results.
