Podcast Description

Grace Rizza, CEO of Identity Dental Marketing, is the star of today’s podcast episode. She joins Kiera to talk Kiera’s favorite topic: marketing 😉

Marketing is a huge piece of a dental practice’s success, so it’s important to take it seriously. Grace shares what her response is to a doctor who’s big goal is to get butts in seats, the most effective ways to build a practice over time, and, of course, three common marketing mistakes:

  1. Signing long contracts

  2. Giving up ownership of domain/website

  3. Not having realistic conversation expectations

The bottom line: Marketing is a necessary part of a well-functioning business. Whether you’re comfortable or not in the topic, it’s time to face the music, and this episode is a great place to start. Visit http://www.TheDentalATeam.com to find other ways to launch your practice into success.
