Get the very best bits for less!

Are you looking for the quickest most cost-effective way to attract the right type of new patients in to your practice?

Perhaps you want more people to take action from your website, rather than just read it and bounce away again?

Making your website work for you is a simple way to ensure you have a marketing machine that works 24-hours a day, even whilst you are asleep and on holiday.

And so I bring you the 'Mark Oborn Light' package, it takes the very best bits of my full online marketing services, condenses them into a shorter period and offers them to you at a cheaper price.

All the very best bits of my full marketing package for less.

There really is light at the end of the tunnel!

Why go for lower cost online marketing?

80% of the results obtained come from 20% of the invested inputs.

To set up a full online marketing system which includes search optimisation (to be found on the search engines) and conversion optimisation (to get more people converting from the website) takes an extensive period of time incorporating e-mail, website changes, calls to action, databases, auto follow-up responses, tracking, measuring and social media marketing.

If you get all of this right the results can be brilliant, but what if you don't have the budget or the time for the full programme?.

Pareto rules

After 8 years of offering online marketing services to over 60 dental practices around the world I'm now in a position to benchmark across multiple data reference points and pick out the very best parts. Pareto's 80:20 principle holds true, 80% of the results obtained come from 20% of the invested input, the trick is knowing which 20%!

So I've carefully selected the most effective activities which offer you 80% of the results of my full-service and bundled them together at a hugely reduced price!

Mark Oborn Light will help your practice website be more:

  • Findable
  • Usable
  • Shareable
  • Effective
  • Long Lasting

How does "Mark Oborn Light" work?

Working alone, as I always do, I will go through your website to ensure it has maximum ability for Google to find it and rank highly, although ensure it is written in a way to engage the maximum number of people using my skills in neurolinguistic programming and knowledge of marketing.

I will then ensure that the people that find your site have the ability to easily share it around the world. Together, we will add robust, yet gentle e-mail marketing to inform, educate and attract patients.

The "light" system is delivered over an eight-month period and represents more than 50% saving on my full e-marketing system.

You can begin attracting more patients into your practice for £400 per month payable for 8 months. (My full System for maximum results is £678 per month for 12 months)

Social media is no fad - it represents a permanent change in the way we communicate in the worlds of B2B, B2P and even P2P (in other words, everything!). Mark has been there since the beginning and has created a footprint in UK dentistry that establishes him as one of the foremost experts on the subject of social media marketing in the profession. You ignore what he says and does at your peril. Don't miss the boat.

Dentinal Tubules, Owner
Working with Mark for the last 12 months has helped us cover more ground faster in enhancing our web presence. Working as a team with Mark has made us more accessible to both our existing and potential patients. Running a dental practice well takes a huge amount of effort, Mark is a great resource and really eases the burden in the area of web development and promotion.
Dr Fraser Hendrie
I have just hired Mark for second year of e-marketing consultancy. What I love about his approach is the initial in-depth analysis of who we are, what our goals and values are. Then going more than the extra mile in implementing the agreed plan but always seeking ways to improve and change the plan in line with the results. Also Mark makes himself available for advice as needed, from his in-depth knowledge of the dental world. I am very happy to recommend Mark Oborn's services to my dental colleagues.

What is included in "Mark Oborn Light"?

Making your website more:


Mark Oborn - What I Do

The 'Findability' section take into account on-site and off-site search optimisation to ensure your website is found by patients and Google alike.

This includes ensuring your website has:

  • Effective and Google/Bing/Yahoo friendly website metadata (titles, description, images) so you are found more on Google
  • Content that is attractive to Google and patients
  • Inbound Links, these are 'votes' for your site around the web (inbound links)
  • High Quality votes/links with as few as possible that are low quality. Some votes/links may need to be removed or disavowed in Google.
  • Links to other high quality websites and that those links are formatted in the correct way to avoid you loosing rank to other competitor websites.

Get all this right and it means your website is found and liked more by patients and Google. More hits to the website = more patients!


Mark Oborn - How I Do It

The easier it is for each user to navigate, read the content, engage with the content and find what they are looking for the more conversions you will get.

This includes ensuring your website has:

  • Quality content that is written in the correct format to engage users (why, what, how, what if).
  • Content which uses different representational systems in the way you explain things (seeing, hearing, feeling, processing).
  • The ability for patients to make a general enquiry, request an appointment
  • An enjoyable journey 'flow' for the user as well as for Google to crawl your site
  • Opening hours listed
  • Prices visible, and more importantly, explained

Get all this right and it means your website is patient friendly, easy to use and answers their questions. Happy website users = more patients!


Mark Oborn - How I Do It

The easier it is for each user to share your content the easier you make it for your patients to talk about you, and we all know the power of patient referrals!

This includes ensuring your website has:

  • Social media sharing features, with 'click to share' functionality.
  • Social media following features to ensure your website visitors can follow your dental health updates on various social media channels.
  • A quality and engaging social media stream with uniquely created and engaging content

Get all this right and it means your website/online presence is shareable, findable and engaging. More website users = more patients!


Mark Oborn - How I Do It

Online marketing is most effective when you have the highest conversion rate from your website. The effectiveness section looks at 'conversion optimisation'.

This includes ensuring your website:

  • Has information about why prices are as they are. A simple price list isn't enough, you need to add VALUE to that price.
  • Is focused around the patient and their needs, not yours!
  • Adequate and effective 'Social proof' to reduce risk and increase trust for new prospective new patients. (These are key marketing points for dentistry!)
  • Uses well contructed references to other useful websites, to demonstrate that you care about your website visitors and want to help them.
  • Tells people what to do and when, we call these 'calls to action' in marketing speak.

Get all this right and it means your website is effective and works to convert visitors to patients. A higher conversion rate = more patients!


Mark Oborn - How I Do It

Longevity looks at how easy it is to engage with website visitors over an extended period. A poor website allows people to bounce off again, a good website will have mechanisms to be able to engage with people over a longer term. This allows us to build trust slowly.

This includes ensuring your website:

  • Has an effective mechanism to collect details from people that are 'ready to go'.
  • Has an effective mechanism to collect details from people that are 'almost ready to go' but need a little nudge.
  • Has an effective mechanism to collect details from people that are in the 'information gathering' stage of their search for a solution to their dental problem.
  • Has an effective mechanism to collect details from people that want to ask a question.
  • Social media following features to ensure your website visitors can follow your dental health updates on various social media channels.

Get all this right and it means your website has a longevity which enables you to build trust and reduce risk for prospective new patients. The lowest risk dentist with the highest trust attracts the most new patients!
