91% of B2B companies and 86% of B2C use content marketing to attract and engage customers. Content marketing is an effective way to reach out to your audience as 70% of people learn about companies through their blogs, posts, or any other forms of online content. So to increase your customer engagement, you must publish content regularly on your website. Your dental content can also help you to upsell your dental practice services.
You can take your dental practice a notch higher by implementing effective content marketing strategies. Here are the five strategies to ace your dental content marketing game.
Strategy and Goal Development
Before rushing towards content creation and publishing, take a step back and strategize. Make a comprehensive list of all the areas you wish to cover or the end goals you intend to achieve with your content. For example, if you are an established dental practitioner, you might want to expand your customer base based on your previous customer testimonials and feedback. If you are just starting your dental practice, then your needs might be different from an established practitioner.
Therefore, you need to keep your end goals in focus and then develop strategies accordingly. After you have clearly identified your goals, it’s time to develop strategies. Develop clear strategies that help you achieve your goals. Also, do not get ahead of yourselves and set goals that are next to impossible.
This will hamper your content creation strategy, and ultimately you will find yourself disappointed.
So, assess your current situation and create goals and strategies accordingly. These goals may not be attainable in one go. So you need to be patient and develop a step-by-step strategy that approaches each goal in a given time frame.
This is the most important part of your dental content marketing tactics. The content is the cornerstone of your marketing strategy. If your content is not attractive enough, it will not capture the attention of the customers. So, you need to create attractive content with catch titles and interactive structures.
Most people online prefer to consume data in a listed or bulleted format. Hence you need to keep such pointers in mind while developing the content structure on your website. Apart from this, your content must also be engaging.
It should not be all smoke and no fire. There must be some enriching information in your content. The readers must attain some knowledge or gain some insights after reading your content. This keeps the readers engaged. This engagement further leads to sales conversion. So, it is rightfully claimed by digital marketing gurus, “content is king”
You also need to take care of the intervals of your content. The content must be published at regular intervals so that your user base is updated with the information. Also, if any major events or conferences take place regarding your field of study, you must cover that too. This reflects that you are constantly updated in your field and provide fresh and recent information.
Producing and publishing content will not attract customers by itself. You would need to strategize your content publishing. Like in the above section, we discussed the content intervals; you need to assess the user response and interaction your content is generating for your dental practice and then decide the intervals of your content. For example, a majority of your users would not be able to read your posts daily or they simply like to engage with your content on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. So plan accordingly to get the best response from your user base.
The next important factor in your content distribution strategy is to decide the mediums and platforms you are going to publish your content on. Surely, the first choice of publishing your platforms would be the ones that are wildly popular among the readers, such as WordPress and Medium but you also need to keep looking out for the other platforms. These platforms drive small yet significant traffic to your website. This is the quality traffic, which has a high lead conversion rate. So, content distribution is also crucial for the success of your dental content marketing strategies.
Reporting and Analyzing
Reporting and analysis is also an essential part of your content marketing strategy. After you have implemented the strategies, you need to measure and track the results too. The analysis must be carried out in a thorough manner. You must focus on the keywords that bring you higher conversions. The areas in which your content is lacking must also be taken into account. Also, this analysis must be done at regular intervals so that you do not lag behind your competitors. The reports must give an in-depth analysis of all your strengths and weaknesses.
Directories and Citations
After you have developed the content and published it on all the appropriate platforms, you need to create citations for your dental practice. This will help your practice to gain maximum online visibility and your platform will attract more customers. These customers can then engage with your content and your dental practice will gain much-needed exposure.
