PSA: Google Ads Dental Implant Click Fraud!

October 14, 2019

Computer displaying dentist click fraud on Google AdwordsAs you know, paid marketing is one of the most effective marketing tools in your arsenal for your dental practice. Running a successful Pay-Per-Click (PPC) or Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) campaign can increase your conversion rate, turning visitors into patients. But, what if those clicks aren’t valid? What happens if you start getting a high number of clicks without that conversion? That’s how click fraud occurs. The cost can be staggering. Between 2016 and 2018, $7.2 billion was lost to fraud, according to Click Guardian.

You may think if you’re running a Google Ads/PPC campaign on dental implants, everything is on the up and up, but you’d be wrong. We’re issuing a Public Service Announcement (PSA) for anyone running a PPC campaign on specifically dental implants, through some firsthand experience with our dental clients over the past couple of years.

Do You Know Your Rate of Returning Dental Patients?

January 28, 2019

If you were to ask most of your fellow dentists if they know the number of new patients coming in each month, you can bet that the majority can rattle off that number with no problem. But, what if I were to ask you to tell me how many of your existing patients come back per month? Would that be as easy? I’d bet not. You see, most dentists spend so much time focusing on getting new patients that they forget you have to always keep recruiting and enticing your existing patients to come back to you.

As you can imagine, knowing the number of return patients over a six-month period is critical to building your practice. It also helps you to assess whether or not you’re wasting your money on new patient marketing. If you’re spending money on patients who are one-and-done, then you’re just throwing your money out the window. Instead, you need to be focusing on marketing efforts that will turn your existing patients into good, long-term patients.
