When to Use What
Heather Kalish, SmartPractice® Marketing Coordinator, advises: “While there are several factors to consider, first determine when you want to use your Giveaways. This tells us a lot about what types of products will serve you best.”
Here’s a list of key dental practice “when’s” and several Giveaway suggestions to go with each.
- After-Appointment Care: Regular patients expect to receive Toothbrushes at every visit.
- New Patients: Throw in a little something extra and consider a reusable Custom Tote Bag with a Toothbrush and Floss, lip balm or drink ware.
- Referring Offices: Consider practical item like Pens & Pencils, Sticky Notes or a nice notepad that can be put together in a clear bag tied closed with a ribbon.
- Community Events: Think about your demographic. Kids love toys, stickers, activities and oral hygiene products made just for them, for example.
- Open Houses: Opening a new dental practice or announcing new procedures? Take Home Whitening Kits are a must. Customize them for added brand-building power. Also consider a water flosser raffle for added impact.
- Promotions and Contests: Larger items such as Zoo Club plush toys for pediatric patients, and functional items for adults like Blankets, Umbrellas, Sun Shades, and Travel Kits make excellent prizes.
