Bring your dental website to life with video marketing and photos

Video marketing can help boost website engagement Dental Design saysDental Design explains how video marketing can help boost your practice engagement.

Personal photography boosts engagement – a point that goes without saying. Photographs give your patients a sense of who you are, a flavour of the practice before taking the plunge and choosing you. Videos go that step further and allow your patients to experience your practice. Furthermore, photography and videos don’t just look fantastic. Indeed, having mixed media on a website makes Google happy and will boost your website’s rankings on organic searches.

A picture says a thousand words – and a video says a million more

Having professional photography and video stamps your identity on your website. Our photographer in particular knows how to best capture your personality on film and will help get the most out of a snap. Indeed, having pictures of your team helps to build trust with your patients as it lays all your cards out on the table. A taste of your personality can consequently go a long way.

Why you should be using video marketing

It’s no secret that consumer attention is best held by video: as a result the storytelling ability is heightened with video versus written content.

Furthermore, it’s said that online video will make up 80% of all online traffic by 2021.

The 12 types of marketing videos

  1. Demo videos
  2. Brand videos
  3. Event videos
  4. Expert interviews
  5. Educational or how-to videos
  6. Explainer videos
  7. Animated videos

Businesses should tap into Youtube – the world’s second largest search engine. For example, Youtube’s search engine is twice as popular as Bing.

When you publish SEO-optimised Youtube videos, you’ll own more Google real estate as 55% of all Google search results contain at least one video. Google has also started to blend Youtube results into Google Image search.
