The way that patients find a dentist has been forever revolutionized by the Internet, considering an overwhelming number of people searching for a specific product or service do so by going straight to Google. They pick up their phone, tablet or computer mouse and search for what they want and where they want to purchase it. Not surprisingly, this also goes for how they choose a dentist.
If you don’t come up in a Google search fairly quickly or worse, if your website isn’t working properly or is “down” when potential patients do click on your website link, your competition up the street can be one click away. It’s becoming increasingly important for dentists to make sure their website is up, running and optimized to its fullest, so when people are searching for a dentist, they find you and the information they need to make an appointment.
But, there are some instances when websites do go “down” and when they do, it’s important to be proactive to get them up and running as soon as possible.
We are excited to announce that we have recently implemented a new website monitoring system for clients at BullseyeMedia. This new system provides advanced, real-time monitoring of our client websites. There are many reasons why a website can go offline, but if any of our client websites do, we will immediately receive an alert. We will know how long it has been offline and what immediate actions are needed to correct it.
We are confident that our website monitoring system will ensure that our client’s websites are up, running and searchable by potential patients on a 24-hour basis.
Your website is one of the most important ways potential patients find and choose you as their dentist. Do you have someone on your side to ensure your website is functioning to 100% of its ability? If not, give us a call or request a website audit and online visibility analysis today and find out how Bullseye Media can help.
