So… let’s be honest, the end of the year is a time to wind down and forget about work. The Holiday Season is upon us which means Christmas parties, squeezing in last minute appointments and finding some time off to enjoy family and loved ones. I get it. You should totally do that. However, it also means that 2018 is right around the corner and ideally it’s the best time to start thinking through goals, strategies and plans for your practice… before going into shut down mode while the numbers are still fresh in your head.
Years ago, I began consulting with dentists to create confident marketing plans and more often than not, that involved a new website. The first few years, I would refer them to all the main players in the space (I won’t mention names), but in every instance I was disappointed in two things: (1) The Process — it was so difficult and took so long to actually get the site live and often it involved the doctor, their team or me doing most of the writing. (2) The Final Product — I’ve never had one experience where the site went live and the doctor said, “Oh my goodness, I love this site! It represents my practice 100%!”
