June 16, 2015 - New PatientActivator eCards Help Dentists Stay Busy All Summer Long

Summer eCards

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 16, 2015) – PatientActivator®, dentistry’s first all-in-one communications, social, online marketing and reputation management service, has added a new series of summer and back-to-school eCards to its collection of holiday-themed eCards for dental practices. Available free to PatientActivator members, these highly effective patient retention tools are designed to help dentists keep their schedules full through the often slow summer months.

Using PatientActivator, dental practices can quickly create, personalize and send a variety of email messages to patients with the click of a mouse. Practices can even schedule deliveries during weekends and holidays when the offices are closed. With no postage or printing costs the dental practice is saving money, and office staff no longer has to devote time to hand-addressing postcards or envelopes. 

PatientActivator’s growing collection of eCards features easy-to-use, customizable email templates for all occasions ranging from personalized thank you messages and appointment reminders to cards celebrating July 4th, Halloween, New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, and more. Ideally suited to grow mindshare and consumer loyalty, email is widely recognized as the most effective digital marketing channel for customer retention. 

“PatientActivator eCards are a smart way for dentists to strengthen patient relationships,” said Brian McCarthy, president of PatientActivator’s parent company Futuredontics. “Patients respond very favorably to personalized, holiday eCards, whether it’s just a friendly eCard wishing them a happy Independence Day or a more pointed reminder to book their kids’ back-to-school checkups.”

In addition to eCards, PatientActivator offers dental practices a complete suite of tools for managing their communications, social media and online reputation. These include automated text, email and phone reminders, reviews builders for Yelp and Facebook, and customizable online promotions for popular services like CEREC and Zoom teeth whitening. The service also offers the industry’s best customer service featuring unlimited live phone support with a friendly, U.S.-based tech team.
