    Big Lessons Learned While Navigating a Crisis with Samantha Leonard

    Samantha Leonard is the co-founder of Stream Dental HR, a company that helps dentists build, develop and grow their team by building and implementing HR systems that help ensure a thriving business and incredible culture. She’s been busy over the past few months helping clients navigate through the current crisis, and today she’s joining us to share some of the biggest lessons that she’s learned. 
    We’re going to cover lessons that have come out of this crisis, the big gaps that we’ve seen in clinics over the past few months, why you need to have a contingency plan, employment contracts (and why having a holistic one is important) and a rainy day fund and what should you start to think about when it comes to your recovery plan. It's going to be a great episode, I'm excited to share what Samantha had to say with you!

    Marketing Your Dental Practice with Stephen Anson

    Marketing Your Dental Practice with Stephen Anson

    Episode 7: Marketing Your Dental Practice with Stephen Anson
    In this episode of the Grow Your Dental Practice Podcast, host Mohamed Ismail talks with co-founder of Smile Marketing, Stephen Anson, about marketing your dental practice. Now that your practice is all set up, it’s time to find you some clients (though Stephen shares that you should start before you’re ready for them).
    In this episode Stephen and Mohamed discuss:
    When marketing starts – Stephen shares that marketing is often an afterthought, considering everything else you have on your plate this makes sense, but marketing should start three to six months prior to your doors opening. This allows for your marketing team to start thinking about bigger picture marketing topics like your overall brand and how to get clients in the door on the first day.
    What a digital marketing strategy is – Stephen shares that your digital marketing strategy goes beyond posting on Facebook or advertising on social media. It is an all-encompassing strategy that, in Smile Marketing’s eyes, hinges on getting visitors to your site and in your dental clinic doors. He shares the five points of digital marketing.
    How your marketing changes based on your location and brand – Marketing is not a one-size fits all strategy. Stephen shares some anecdotes about how different dental clinics marketing, and how their strategies change based on their brands, location and goals.
    How desired clientele drives marketing – Stephen talks about the importance of answering the question how do I love to serve, as the answer drives how your dental clinic will market to clients.
    How your instincts can help with your dental clinic marketing – As you market your practice, you’ll learn what works and what doesn’t. Stephen shares that listening to your instincts can benefit your marketing strategy.
    Your marketing budget – Stephen shares some thoughts and strategies for distributing your marketing budget.
    Understanding your performance – No discussion about marketing would be complete without going over how to measure your marketing performance. Steven walks us through the importance of measuring your marketing and what to look for.
