Converting Website Visitors into Patients at Your Practice

by - 11:49 AM

Most dental practices have modern and beautiful dental websites to let patients know about the treatments and procedures that they have to offer and how they can help improve the appearance and health of teeth. This is very important for dental marketing, however, what is more important is making sure that you maintain your website, update it on a regular basis and ensure that it is optimised for Google. This is so that when patients are searching for their dental needs your website is one of the first to be listed on the search results. 

Keyword research 
Successful dental websites are ones that focus on converting website visitors into actual patients at the dental practice. First you need to optimise the content of your website to attract quality patients who are already interested in addressing their dental needs. The content of your website should consist of text, videos, images, reviews and testimonials and other aspects of the website which are there for a patient’s benefit. You need to find out what your patients are interested in and make sure that these things are included in your website. This means carrying out keyword research. Keyword research tells you the current trends in your area. It tells you what treatments and procedures are being searched for most commonly by the people in your geographical vicinity. It also informs you on which dental issues are being searched for most frequently by the same people and with the correct software you can find out more information with regard to the searchers, so that you have a better idea of your target audience. With this information you can update your website accordingly and it will not only help maintain the interest of website visitors, but it will also show Google that your website has the answers that patients are looking for, helping to boost your position in the search results list. 

Getting in touch 
Optimised content will not only encourage your visitor to explore your website, but it will help convince them that your dental practice is the right place for them. It is important that there are plenty of opportunities for the visitor to contact the dental practice when they make this decision. You should have a click-to-call button, a live chat option where possible, an online booking system, a contact form and other options which make it easy for the potential patient to get in touch with you to book an appointment and visit you in person soon. If you can convince a prospective patient to leave their name and email address on your website, then you can begin an email marketing campaign to help educate and inform the patient with respect to the treatment or procedure that they were interested in. You can let them know of the benefits of these procedures, talk about similar procedures which are available and encourage them to visit you in person to find out more or address their dental needs in the near future.
