How to Professionally Market Your Growing Orthodontic Practice

If you’ve started an orthodontic practice and would like to grow it by reaching more people, you need to follow effective marketing tips. These are strategies that other orthodontic practices have benefited from in the past and that you can also benefit from if you apply them in the right way. Here are some of these tips that you could put in place yourself or ask the professional marketer that you’ve hired to help implement. Let’s check it out!



Identify Your Target Market

To start with, you need to know who your target market is. That’s because different sections of the population are going to respond positively to a range of marketing techniques. They’re also going to need various treatments for the most part. Unless you know who you’re targeting, it may be considerably hard for you to target them the right way using the methods that are most likely to convert them.

Invest in Professional Signs

Next, it’s imperative that you have professional signs made for your business. This is an important tip to keep in mind as it can benefit a number of businesses and has been tried and tested countless times before. Signs are important because up to 85% of your potential customers are locals who may walk past your sign daily or weekly. With this in mind, you need to find an expert who can design and print out a professional sign that’s going to grab people’s attention and motivate them to walk in for inquiries.

Make Use of Quality Photos

It’s not a secret that photos have more converting power than other forms of media. That said, it’s a good idea for you to leverage photos in your marketing efforts as you may be able to pass a point across more easily in this way. Where a photo cannot suffice, you can use text in the form of an infographic to pass the message, since this may be more attractive to people than blocks of text.

In an infographic, you can share information. For example, over 36 million Americans don’t have any teeth, while 120 million Americans are actually missing at least one tooth; a fact that is bound to catch someone’s attention. This can do a great job of helping people develop an interest in this statistic. As a result, they may be more receptive if you talk about the solutions that are available for this issue.

Leverage Social Media

Don’t forget that social media has a lot of power in the current field of marketing. That said, you need to pick the right platforms on which to market your services. That’s because your target market may not frequent particular platforms, and others may simply not be conducive to your industry. To get a great outcome by using social media, you can share facts and helpful information with your followers or in the advertisements that you put up. One of the facts that you can share is that in the past year, just 63% of people aged above 18 years have visited the dentist.

Maintain a Professional Website

Finally, you cannot do without a professional website for your orthodontic practice. That’s because we’re currently living in the digital age where information is shared and accessed widely on the internet. This makes it important for you to task a professional with designing a professional website for your practice. It needs to load fast and be easy to navigate if you want to get the best outcome from having it, so keep this in mind.

These marketing tips can make it easier for you to professionally market your orthodontic practice. With consistency, you can be sure that you’re going to develop a keen following. At this point, using the right business practices is going to help you stay relevant and profitable for a long time to come.
