We’re so close to the start of the final quarter of the year. Here are some ideas and strategies that will help you end the year strong & happy.
October is Apple Month – “You can count the seeds in an apple, but you can’t count the apples in a seed.“
Marketing your dental practice is like planting seeds. Some seeds sprout right away, and others may take a while. You may have written some seeds off as a loss and when you least expect it, there it sprouts and produces beautiful results. And some may sprout where you don’t even remember planting.
What are your marketing seeds? Everything that you do, everything that the patient (and potential patient) sees, hears & feels. Everything Matters!
The tips and ideas (practice growth seeds) when implemented will keep things fresh and fun in your office. More importantly, they will exceed your current patients’ and potential patients’ expectations – why is this so important? Because exceeding your patients’ expectations will help keep them loyal to your office. Contributing to practice growth! These things will allow you to focus on doing what you do best, helping your patients achieve healthy and beautiful smiles.

Social Media Post Ideas to Improve Engagement during the month of October
Even if you’re not a fan of social media, please remember that most likely many of your patients and potential patients are using these platforms regularly. Engage with them! You want to be where they are and since first impressions matter – make sure that your office is making a positive impression. Just like with reviews on your Google listing you want reviews/recommendations from your patients on your office Facebook page too.
