Are you Yelping? You may not be, but your patients and people in your community certainly are. Yelp.com is a site where anyone can go to get information and opinions about any business. Many people these days are getting their information about choosing a new dentist by searching dentists in their area on Yelp.
Don’t believe us? Go to Yelp and do a search for “cosmetic dentist” and type in your city or town. Look who comes up. Is it you? Is it your competition? Also look to say if anyone has made any comments.
OK friends, it is becoming more crucial to know about sites like Yelp. You may think to yourself that you have no interest, but this is happening and will only be getting MUCH more popular as time goes on. You need to be in control, and there are ways to do so.
Two quick hints for today:
1. Sign up for a Yelp account in your name. Yes, it is totally FREE! Start rating businesses that you frequent (such as restaurants) so you get a feel for how it works. The more social sites you are on as a dentist, the easier you will be found on Google as a dentist!
2. Get friends of yours to also sign up and if they have been to you as a dentist, get them to write a great review about your office. Although we are not certain, it appears that the businesses with more reviews come up better in searches.
3. Constantly monitor your listing to see what others are saying about you.
Do these three things and you will be way ahead of most other dentists!
