Dental Marketing is all about LOCALITY, CONVENIENCE & QUALITY.
1. Create location pages on your website for every city, suburb or neighborhood you are trying to target.
Having a web page dedicated to Dental Services in New Brighton will show Google that your business is probably more relevant to the search term, “Dental Services in New Brighton” than companies who don’t have a page dedicated to that area as long as the content is properly optimized. If you choose to have an agency do this for you, make sure they are trustworthy and knowledgeable (like us) because there’s nothing worse for SEO than duplicate content across 100 pages (we’ve seen other agencies do this. Crazy!)
2. Fill out your directory listings completely. No blank fields. Add photos, videos or any other marketing materials you may have to give your listing a personal touch.
3. Add before and after pictures on your site. In addition to testimonials, before and after pictures speak to your practice’s credibility and expertise. These photos are a great way to emphasize results, especially if you specialize in cosmetic dentistry.
4. Add a contact form on your site. Even better, add an online appointment scheduler application. You want to make the contact process as easy as possible. Some people may prefer calling but more and more people are drawn to contact forms and online submissions because of the convenience.
5. Separate your services by page. If you list all of your services on one page, Google won’t know which service is most relevant to that page which decreases your chances of ranking for any of the service keywords. Create a unique page for each service with supportive content. If you dedicate one page to ‘Dental Implants,’ its more likely going to come up in a Google search for that keyword than a page that talks about dental implants, veneers and dental cleanings.
