Attention Dentists: Discover How You Can Quickly and Easily Harness the Power of the Internet and Social Media to Attract More Qualified, Ideal Patients Who Are Ready to Start Treatment Immediately; Sign Up for the Big Diastema Internet Marketing for Dentists Workshop
BEND, Ore., Nov. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Big Diastema Internet Marketing for Dentists (online at http://BigDiastema.com) has announced plans to host its second annual Internet Marketing Workshop for Dentists, to be held in Bend, Oregon, on January 20 and 21, 2011.
"This workshop is structured to give dentists the hands-on experience of adding and changing content in all the places their ideal patients are visiting: Their practice website, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Yelp!," says Jared Young, co-owner of Big Diastema and COO of a dental practice in San Diego, California. "It's imperative that dentists learn to harness the power of social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter for two reasons: 1) You can't afford to ignore social media, and 2) You can't be handcuffed to paying someone else to represent you, your practice, and your brand."
The workshop will empower dentists with the first-hand knowledge on not just WHY it is important to constantly update and add content to your website and social media, but also HOW to accomplish it without taking away from your practice and what you do best: help patients.
"The single best, easiest way to attract more qualified patients is to develop a consistent stream of quality content online," says Young. "Websites have become the equivalent of online business cards: they look nice, but end up rubber banded to a stack of others cards and tucked away somewhere in the back of a drawer."
Young should know: He has helped develop one of the top dental practice websites in the world and has helped develop websites and Internet Marketing plans for other dentists who have seen not just a huge increase in new patients, but a huge increase in the type of new patients his clients want to see.
From Young: "A good website does more than just get page views. A good dental website attracts the right kind of patient and gets them to call your office. Anyone can get you 20,000 website 'hits' a month... that's easy. But you don't need insurance-driven patients who just want to know if you are in network with their provider. You need patients who are motivated to start treatment, regardless of insurance."
The dental marketing workshop will be limited to 12 attendees and is a hands-on training on how to maximize the power of the Internet for your practice.
"If there was an option, if people could stay one more day... everybody in that room would sign up to do it," says Joanne Glaros of William P. Glaros, DDS in Spring, Texas. "We learned all of these new techniques and understanding why they are important and so that we can use them... to be able to go home and click a video. That seemed like such a huge thing... well, it's really pretty simple."
The conference will be conducted Friday and Saturday, January 20-21, 2011 in beautiful Bend, Oregon, located near the base of Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort. Attendees can plan on two full days of workshops and nights of leisure with the chance to visit famous breweries (such as Deschutes Brewery) and explore the scenic Central Oregon outdoors. Ski and snowboard enthusiasts may stay an extra day, taking advantage of Mt. Bachelor's 360 degrees of skiable, dry powder.
