……93% of local searches feature Google My Business listings before normal search results.
And just how important is your GMB Listing for being discovered by (and connecting with) new patients?
Arguably, it’s more important than your own website. Why? Because here are some of the things that new patients can do, all without visiting your site:
- Call you
- Message you
- Get directions
- Ask questions
- Read reviews [Social Proof]
- Book an appointment/consult
… all the core functions of your website.
Folks don’t need to visit your site anymore to do these tasks (remember 77% of folks contact dental practices directly from Google).
