While this starts at home with regular brushing and flossing, it also requires regular trips to the dentist. Everyone, from babies six months and up, need to see the dentist.

    There is Competition

    If you’ve earned your dentistry license, you’ve got a lot of competition out there, despite the fact that we all need dental visits. You’ve got to earn the trust of clients, build new relationships with clients and provide outstanding services. First and foremost you need to get patients sitting in the big chair.

    While a dentist can market his practice in every way imaginable, from sending out emails to TV and magazine ads, one of the most effective methods is text marketing. Mobile marketing, as it is also called, allows you to send messages to customers via their mobile device. This enables you to have instant access to customers no matter where they are at when the message is sent. You can certainly spread awareness that your dental practice is open and accepting new patients.

    Message Sent

    There are several ways in which text message marketing can be used to help your dental office. You can send special offers good for new clients only. You can also send marketing messages providing clients with a free procedure or a cool refer a friend bonus. More and more dental offices are using text marketing to send dental tips and special offers to their marketing list. The possibilities are certainly endless.

    Text marketing is an affordable way for dentists to market their business. While you’ll need a company to assist in marketing your messages, the costs are very nominal and suitable for dentists offices and budgets of all sizes. It is a good idea to make company and service comparisons before making a final decision in the company selected.

    How to Start Text Marketing

    The first step in mobile marketing isn’t to find a company (though it never hurts to get a head start on things) to perform the services, but rather to build your text marketing list. There are many ways in which this can be done, including adverts in your printed ads, notifications on your social media sites and through office sign-up sheets and online banners and ads.

    Be sure that you’ve already got a few ideas up your sleeve for your marketing messages. Remember, you always want the offers that you are providing via mobile marketing to entice the consumer to join your list, but to also utilize the dental service that you offer to them. This is the only way to increase profits and awareness to your dental office.
