Will Geofencing Save or Kill Direct Mail?

June 14, 2019

Geofencing for dentists vs direct mailIt’s no secret the digital footprint of consumers and patients grows each day, especially as people are connected via their smartphones, watches, tablets, etc. But, many businesses, including dental practices, tend to stay in their comfort zone when it comes to marketing tactics, including direct mail to patients. As the consumer advances technologically, does a direct mailer stand a chance at making a difference, and if so, can some of that technology help it along?

Michelle Kupper, Practice Growth Director of Operations

Overseeing our client relationships as well as all operational functions at TNT is no small task; that’s why we have our Practice Growth Director of Operations, Michelle Kupper, leading those charges. She’s responsible for leading the team of Growth Leaders.

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.

June 20, 2018

How to get 5-star dentist reviewsReputation management for dentists has greatly evolved over the past few decades.

Learn to Love Long Scrolling Websites… or Get Left in the Past!

June 12, 2018

Dentist explaining why she does not like long scrolling websites

Once upon a time, websites that scrolled on and on were seen as a death knell for businesses’ online presence, including dental practices. People weren’t going to scroll for more information; if you didn’t have all your information “above the fold,” it was essentially lost in the internet ether.

Then came 2015 and the shift to mobile. As you know from our previous blog posts, including “Generating Patients for your Practice using a Custom Dental Website,” about 60 to 70% of your viewers are visiting your site from a mobile device. So, in order to stay relevant, web designers had to reconfigure the look and feel of websites. That shift took long scrolling sites from the losing column of web design over to the winning.

Users have become accustomed to scrolling with ease; it’s often easier to scroll and find what you’re looking for versus clicking on a page and waiting for it to load. Look at young kids today; hand them a smartphone or tablet, and they’ve got scrolling down pat!

Using Custom Dental Videos to Grow Your Practice

June 5, 2018

Best custom video SEO for dentists

Dr. Jeff Yenzer (Yenzer Family Dental) & a patient undergoing a dental exam

Just take a minute and think about how many videos you watch each day. Don’t forget those scrolling videos in your Facebook timeline, the links to a YouTube page or the stories on either your favorite newscast or news station’s website. Is it five? Ten? Twenty, or more? Go ahead, don’t be ashamed, because you’re in good company. According to Forbes, a third of all the time people spend online is dedicated to watching videos.

Video marketing is booming, and it seems as though everyone wants in on the action…or, so you think. What consumers seek in their providers and what providers want to offer their customers are rarely the same. As a dentist, you know you need to have a solid website and establish a good online marketing strategy to engage current patients and attract new ones, but are you incorporating video into your plans? By using custom dental videos, you are differentiating yourself from the competition.
