Is street-level advertising a good way to get an audience for the business?
Hi, I am Ervin, a young dentist. I am looking to start a dental clinic in Toronto and I am planning to start next month, but getting people to trust a new doctor isn't that easy. A few days back, I came across a magazine where I found a small article on the success of a doctor who started struggling but came top with quality service and effective advertising through mediums like Google Ads and street-level advertising in densely populated areas. Should I follow this or wait for the magic to happen! Share your suggestions.

Try coupons, joint venture advertising, and more importantly testimonials a few video testimonials if you can. Add your website to Use Twitter to target locally with the proper hash tags.

Proven Dental Practice ideas From KY, CA, Au for Jeff
Happy New Year Jeff,

I created my own J-o-b.

Thus it is a bit odd.

I interview and work with affluent Small Biz owners around the world. Then
Find out what WORKS BEST for each.

Share it in E-books, mp3 audio programs and Consulting.

Dunno what your COMMUNICATION STYLE is Yet.

Face to Face

So here are ideas in all 3 Areas...

FACE TO FACE #1 - M*illionaire Aussie Dentist Tells each patient, "It is illegal for me to Advertise. So I Rely on Referrals.

"Here are all the things I do for You and People you Refer Who are
equal to or better than you as a patient.

a - No Pain Dentistry
b - A Pain Button
c - TV on the ceiling so you can watch movies while I work
d - All your favorite magazines and papers
e - Your name on your own waiting room.
f - My Home phone # in case of Emergencies.

then he hands them a pen and paper and Says, " IF You want me to Be Here
for you when you Need Me - Please Refer at least 3 people."

And He gets 10 or 20!

#2 - PRINT - DIRECT MAIL - internet - Sign in Window

M*illioniare Dentist specializing in Kids.

Took a Jack Hammer
and Dug A TRENCH Behind a Low - Low - Kid level Counter
in his lobby.

So the Adults are Eye to eye with the kids.

Sends out Photos to Lists he B*uys
from Retiring Dentists.

PHOTO in the window.

Photo Postcards.

Sells Ball Caps and T-shorts with SAME - eye to eye Photo.

PHONE - Los Angeles Dentist with 900,000 Patients. Speaks 3 languages.
Employs 9 dentists.

Hires Telemarketers to Call Rented Lists
of home owners with kids.

Follows up with Direct Mail and a F-r-e-e Tooth Brush with his
address on it.

GIANT Playroom. Toys and Video Games.


P.S. - There is also the Kentucky Dentist who discovered if he parks his big Ugly,
dirty Pick-Up Truck on the street outside his office - with an A-Frame Sign
in the bed.

A stream of new dental Prospects comes in from that.
