It’s important to update your website to keep it fresh and current. Did you hire a new team member? Do you want to promote a service? We’re here to update your content as needed!
To request an update:
- Simply complete this form! You can also find the form in the Request Update tab in Roadside Connect.
Simple updates, like adding or removing a team member or changing the business hours, can be incorporated into your plan.
More extensive updates will require additional time for our team to complete, separate from your strategized plan. We can let you know how long the update will take our team. Then, you can decide whether to pay only for the updates you request on an hourly basis or with a 5-hour or 15-hour block of updates time that never expires. We offer an hourly rate discount if you purchase a block of time.
In either case, our team will add your update to our queue and you will receive a notification from our team within 5 business days. If your request is urgent, please let us know and we will try and accommodate you.
- Can I add more email accounts?
Roadside Connect can help you convert more leads into new patients and generate more revenue plus easily track the ROI of your marketing investment!
- Connect with your current patients... Think about all the unaccepted treatment plans and referral sources.
- Most practices have over a million dollars in unaccepted treatment sitting in their practice management systems — and they don’t even know it.
- Research shows consumers need a minimum of 8 touchpoints from a brand before committing to a purchase (this absolutely applies to dental patients!) And yet, many practices have only spoken to a patient one time about a treatment recommendation.
How Roadside Connect can help:
- We can build nurture campaigns that are specifically designed to help you close the hidden revenue sitting in your existing database with relationship-nurturing (i.e. non-spammy) emails, text messages, and education.
- Send review requests by email or text and respond right from the Conversations tab
- Connect with potential patients... Think about how potential patients reach out to you…
- Phone calls, text messages, email, website forms, web chat, Facebook Messenger, Instagram Direct Messages, Google chat (this is going to be the next big thing!)
- Studies have shown that if you aren’t responding within 5 minutes of them requesting additional information—you are running an exponential risk of losing that new patient.
How Roadside Connect can help:
- Connect all your incoming messages in one convenient inbox, including two-way texting! (plus it’s 100% HIPAA compliant)
- Record calls for tracking and training.
- Optional features available:
- Allow new patients to request an appointment and then check your schedule to book them on your schedule.
- Offer the convenience of web chat. We can even set up automated responses!
- Connect with Roadside... You’ll find all this in Roadside Connect!
- Find analytics from your website traffic and Google Business Profile
- Check your Google and Facebook Ads reports
- See the potential revenue we’re generating for you and the return on your marketing investment
