Attract More Qualified Patients With Video
Video has far surpassed all other dental marketing messages you can put on your website. It can provide information displaying your expertise, it allows you to post “live” testimonials from other patients, and any more it is simply expected by your prospects when they are searching. A minute of video is worth 1.8 million words (Dr. James McQuivey, Forrester Research, January 2009).
But video has its credibility problems when done incorrectly. Unprofessional productions lead many prospective patients to believe that if the video was produced hastily and inexpensively, then the entire website – and therefore the dentist – is of dubious quality as well.
- Shaky shots and poor quality sound discredits your efforts.
- Quick “hallway” shots lend to the belief that your entire operation is cheap and probably not worth considering.
- Bad interview tactics with patients staring directly into the camera don’t seem realistic
- Jerky and unprofessional editing does not help your professional image and is distracting to your message.
