Simple steps to drive more traffic from day 1.

You don't need to be a marketing guru to make a splash with your new Frame Gallery.  In fact, there are easy things you can do to ensure that patients find and use your Frame Gallery.

Take a look at  this short check list.  Use it as your marketing to-do list and you will be sure to get your gallery off to a good start:

  • Add a link to your website (or embed it on a page)Blue MFG screenshot
  • Send out an email announcement 
  • Add it to appointment reminder emails
  • Add it to outgoing email signatures
  • Add a link on company social media profiles 
  • Add it to appointment reminder cards
  • Post about it on social media regularly (and create a schedule of posts)

Keep reading for more tips on marketing your Gallery:


Buttons vs links

Consider making a button that says "Browse Our Frames" or "Browse Frames" that can be included in your outgoing emails. This button will be more engaging than just the actual link, and will indicate to the patient what they can do if they click the button.

You can use that same button on your website.  Remember, when adding to your site, be sure to place the button or link in a prominent place (or if using the iframe, embed the gallery on the home page or a secondary page that is only one click in).  You want your Gallery to be easy to find, so it is vital that the button be placed on the home page (or close to it) to minimize the number of clicks required to navigate to it.
