Dental Marketing Ideas for May 2014

NOTE: Visit Here for Updated Marketing Ideas for the month of May

Hello Friends, Happy Spring!

Before I share some dental marketing ideas for the month of May with you, I want to share something from another post of mine about marketing:

Marketing your dental practice is like planting seeds. Some seeds sprout right away, 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.  Some may sprout where you don’t even remember planting.”

This point is made quite clear by these pictures….

Just look at that beautiful and very strong stalk and flower that grew from that one tiny (seemingly insignificant) seed. Also, that tiny seed in time produced many, many more seeds!!

What are your marketing seeds? Everything that you do, everything that the patient (and potential patient) sees, hears & feels.”

Keep that in mind when planning your future marketing campaigns.
