Google Local Service Ads Now Available for Dentists
Good news, dentists! The avenues for building your brand and attracting new patients have just expanded dramatically. Now your practice can take advantage of the same powerful, high-traffic tool that other local businesses have been leveraging for years.
Google Local Services Ads have been serving different businesses directly to local search results for years. Now dentists can be put front and center on Google search pages, in addition to driving clicks and views to your online presence. Consider increasing the exposure of your dental practice using this potent advertising tool:
What are Google Local Services Ads?
If you’ve ever performed a Google search looking for local goods or services in your area, such as farm fresh eggs, a plumber or repair person for your home, you’ve seen Google Local Services Ads. These are the eye-catching boxes with a business’s name, rating, area of service, and hours that sit right at the top of your search results. Better still, they often boast the designation of “Google Screened” or “Google Guaranteed”, which lends a trustworthiness to the results your potential customers notice.
Customers can conveniently click through these ads to contact your dental office. This not only saves time, but also entices patients with an ease of contact with their dentist of choice. This is a proven means for increasing your traffic and in turn, your revenues.
Why Placing Your Practice on Google Local Services Ads is Vital to Your Success
Competition for potential patients is fierce between dental practices. Simply having the best services or most robust options for treatment isn’t enough in the modern digital landscape. Capturing the limited attention of viewers with too much to do and little time to research the variety of dentistry options available to them is the goal, and Google Local Service Ads provide a way to appeal to new patients who saw your name online.
Google Local Services Ads place your name in front of patients who are already in search of your services. You’ll have their attention for the most important moments in their decision-making process. With Google’s verification attached to your ad, you’ll have a definite advantage over competitors who haven’t undergone this process.
