YOUR PROJECT TIMELINE

We’re here to help you take care of the little things (and do them correctly!)
Get ready to overtake your competitors!

Let’s take care of the prep work.
Do you have a physical office number?
Get ahead by gathering assets.
Let the online marketing begin!
Let’s take care of the prep work.

This is where we take care of the basics by gathering all the information about your new practice.

  • What is your NAP (name, address, phone number)?
  • What domain (URL) is your site launching onto?
  • Do you need Roadside to buy your domain for you?
  • Did you sign the Domain Management Agreement?
  • What emails would you like? (info@, team@, etc.)

Do you have a physical office number?

Great! We can get started on the following tasks:

  • Social Media Setup
  • Social Branding
  • Online Directory Setup
Get ahead by gathering assets.

Jumpstart the website and social media process by sending us assets that will build trust with future patients.

  • Gather testimonials from family members and friends you’ve treated.
  • Compile your favorite social media photos to show off your personality.
  • Decide on patient forms (online or fillable PDF).
  • Determine how you’re going to get rid of financial barriers (accept most insurance, third-party financing, etc.).
Let the online marketing begin!

Now you have the logo, trust builders, office number, and social accounts, it’s time to start the virtual online handshake. Start introducing your brand to the world and getting patients to your doors (before they even open!).

  • Launch your temp site (we need your headshot, contact information, and the first website survey completed).
  • Start your Prebook Campaign.
  • Start sending weekly DIY Marketing Goodies to your inbox.

Now it's time to
