Identity Dental Marketing, a renowned leader in the dental marketing industry, is exposing critical concerns surrounding social media marketing courses and done-for-you services.
“We’ve seen growing numbers of poor advice in online forums, courses, and even in service offerings from so-called ‘gurus’. It’s important to help dentists understand these malpractices to prevent wasted marketing dollars and time,” said Grace Rizza, owner and founder of Identity Dental Marketing.
One prominent issue with many online social media courses is their relentless focus on low-cost lead generation. While the allure of quick results and minimal investment may be enticing, these so-called “silver bullet” approaches often fail to effectively market high-quality dental services. Building a brand on social media should not rely on a one-size-fits-all method, as successful marketing should reflect the practice’s unique brand.
Another concern is self-proclaimed “gurus” who promote done-for-you or DIY complex funnel campaigns. Complex marketing funnels are often expensive to build and usually offer no more benefit than those with a more direct, simpler form. In this scenario, the marketer will likely offer a training program or system that’s proven, then in the presentation shares enough information to confuse and frustrate the dentist. After touting unprecedented results, the “guru” will offer a done-for-you approach. The marketing agency knows that they can pitch a $5000-$8000+ set-up fee if they overcomplicate the process. These campaigns are often ineffective because they lack the creative messaging and hands-on follow-up protocol.
Instead of relying solely on complicated or DIY marketing programs, Identity Dental Marketing recommends starting with a complimentary marketing planning session.
“You should first identify your unique selling proposition. Then learn about the strategies you can use to communicate that specific message while connecting with your ideal patient base. Each program should have a well-articulated set of expectations, and the risk involved should be clear. No one should spend $8,000 on a Facebook ad campaign set-up,” said Rizza, CEO of Identity Dental Marketing.
