If you haven’t claimed your Google My Business page, you’re not maximizing your dental online marketing. Even worse, you’re potentially missing out on anyone searching for a dentist in your area, either in local search or on Google Maps.
Google My Business is essentially a free snapshot of your dental practice. It provides a way to get your contact information, location, hours of operation, photos, reviews, and much more into a separate, prominent location on Google’s search results page. It’s a great way to enhance your online presence and influence more new patients to choose your dental practice.
Google My Business Is Also Part Of Your Dental Local Search Marketing
Mobile device users now spend more time online searching for a dentist than desktop computer users, and the trend is growing. Fortunately, Google My Business has dedicated apps for Android and iPhone users, ensuring that your information loads quickly and displays correctly.
Attracting the patients you want requires that your practice engage online with your dental prospects. Google has added a chat feature to allow you to do exactly that.
You can also easily update your Google My Business listing with announcements, new photos, and other content.
Your Dental Online Marketing Components Have To Play Nice
Google My Business is a good addition to your dental online marketing program. For maximum effectiveness, your listing has to complement and reinforce the other aspects of your marketing. That’s a lot of things for a busy dentist to keep juggling.
If you want to get more and better patients while focusing on the activities that make you money, we can help you maximize your local search results, whether someone specifies either directly (such as inputting neighborhood, town, or city in a Google search) or indirectly (such as GPS with Google Maps) the local area to which they want to limit a search.
