    Marketing: What to focus on 1st?


    Hey guys,

    My dad runs a dental practice in Manchester, UK. I am new to Web Marketing but am very interested in learning and have offered to put a marketing plan together and help him implement it.

    Can anyone advise me on what the top 2 forms of marketing would be to focus on 1st for this type of business, to provide the quickest, sizable result in traffic to his site?

    Many thanks for all your answers in advance,
    J

    You can do this without creating a website. write a good & attractive description for your father's business and do classified submissions for it. Search some of local listing and register there your business with contact number, address.

    Plenty of things can be done


    Hi Josh,
    I think the first thing you should do is get it listed in Google places and get some nice reviews for it from clients. The more keyword rich the reviews the better.
    Then submit it to directory listing sites and especially in local directories.
    Then do some on-site optimization and make sure search engines know exactly what it is about. This isn't that hard to do and wont cost you a fortune.
    Next you can think of creating pages for multiple keywords. For example a separate page for various dental service provided by your father.
    Creating a Twitter and Facebook account and engaging with users is also a good idea. Check out how to increase twitter followers for some more details.
    Additionally you can do things like press releases, creating a blog and adding posts for some extra traffic and authority back links.

    First you should see where is your product market and what kind of market trend is running and then visit the market to see and learn the rules and regulations, sources and marketing procedure.

    yeah social media pages helps alot specially in the matter of shops work. Post pictures and as you said it is dental clinic post dental health care tips on your social pages. Join local health forums. Mostly forums have the facility where you can post the forum about your clinic services. Get a good logo design. These are just basics there is alot more things by applying that we can achieve traffic to our site.

    As per my opinion you can use off page and on page SEO techniques to marketing the site.
    Now a days social media is famous for marketing.It helps you to promote your site.It gives Information to others about your dad's business.
    You have to attach proper information About your dad's business and website to your profile and share it to public that will help you to get good traffic.

    Hi,

    I do agree with you. But not 100%. For more visibility on site SEO is also necessarily.
