June 10, 2014 - Dentists Get Yelp Survival Tips from Fred Joyal

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 10, 2014) – Futuredontics®, the nation’s leading dental marketing company, is hosting a new free webinar called “Yelp! The Dentist Survival Guide,” led by founder Fred Joyal. The webinar will focus on how dental professionals can use online review sites to grow their practice and manage their online reputation. During his presentation, Fred will share proven strategies for creating the perfect office profile, generating 5-star reviews and dealing with negative patient feedback.

The live hour-long course will be held on Thursday, June 19th beginning at 11am PST / 2pm EST, and is open to all dentists and office staff. After the presentation, Fred will remain available online to answer attendee questions.

The webinar’s goal is to coach dental practices through best practices for patient acquisition and reputation management when dealing with online reviews sites. The topic has become especially important in light of recent studies revealing that 45% of patients are now using review sites like Yelp to find a dentist. Yelp can present a significant challenge to dentists who want to protect their online reputation due to its controversial review filter practices.

“Yelp can be a real pain point for dentists,” Fred Joyal explained. “The way in which the site posts and promotes patient reviews has a serious impact on a practice’s long-term success. This webinar shows dentists how they can ‘work the system’ to their advantage so that their practice gets more great reviews and isn’t hurt by a few negative comments.”

Fred Joyal is best known for founding Futuredontics, the parent company of 1-800-DENTIST and the industry’s leading source for new patients. He is also the author of the bestselling book “Everything is Marketing: The Ultimate Strategy for Dental Practice Growth,” now it its 5th edition. In addition to hosting a popular series of dental marketing webinars and online videos, Joyal is a respected lecturer and the owner of the blog, GoAskFred.com, which explores how topics like social media, patient loyalty and retention, dental websites and online presence affect practice growth.
