Do You Have to Blog for Your Dental Website?
A few years ago, one might say that blogging looks like a nice option for their businesses. Now whoever thinks that has probably been sleeping for a couple of years! Blogging is no longer an option – it’s an integral part of every business’ marketing efforts – one that you can’t do without.
Your dental website needs blogs. Don’t believe otherwise. Each blog post provides you with the perfect opportunity to build a new relationship with prospective patients and strengthen what you and your existing patients have.
The internet is overflowing with information on any and all topics. Because of this, millions of people turn to Google to provide them with the information they need. It is, after all, quite easy to go online on a smartphone, tablet, or laptop and “Google” it. When a potential patient from your area goes online to find oral health information, you want to be sure that your website is where they land.
How do you do that? You blog… and then you blog some more.
Why do you need to offer all the dental information that you can through blogging?
It will give potential patients a glimpse of your personality. Why is it important that people see this? Well, aside from the quality of your dental work, how you make your patients feel comfortable is what’s going to set you apart. Before they step in your office, your blogs can make them feel at ease. They can show how knowledgeable you are about your field and how you want to reach out to your patients!
It gives you credibility. Like we always say, blogging can help establish you as an authority in your industry. Posting informative articles about dental health, latest dental technologies, and helpful tips let your prospective patients see that you are the person to trust when it comes to dental services. Just remember that the blogs you are going to post are for your patients and prospective patients. That means you should not be too technical and “speak” in a language that is easy to understand.
It can turn visitors of your website into patients of your practice. For most dental websites, blogs are the top web traffic driver. When guests of your website see and read your blogs, they’ll start to trust you and they’ll be more inclined to visit your dental practice and be your patient.
It offers long-term growth. Traditional marketing “tricks” for dental practices are mostly one-time campaigns: flyers, coupons, perhaps a premium radio spot. But while these are all effective in delivering quick results, they do fade just as quickly. On the other hand, your blogs will never stop working for you as long as your website is up. They will there for your potential patients to find even years from the day you posted them.
