Is Your Website Mobile Friendly?
The world is quickly becoming more connected thanks to smartphones and the internet. I shopped for my last dentist online: first I went to my insurance provider’s list of approved dentists, then I selected my top 3 candidates based on proximity and availability. Next I reviewed the dentists on Healthgrades and Yelp. It took me 30 minutes during my lunch break. And all from my smartphone.
It made me think: how does my employers’ website look from my smartphone? I checked it out – and I was impressed. All details had been freshly updated – our hours had recently changed a bit. It looked sharp, streamlined, and succinct. Most importantly, it was easy to navigate!
I would encourage you now: go check out your website. Is it mobile friendly? Does it link properly with Google and other search engines? How about Yelp? Have you tried searching for your practice using GPS? Others have tried this already. If there is a problem, report it immediately – maybe your next patient won’t be 10 minutes late because they couldn’t find you.
