The secrete to a great dental marketing campaign is found within 5 forms of marketing.

This rule is your greatest ally when deploying a marketing campaign. A direct mailer campaign that reaches a home once is not nearly effective as a direct mailer campaign that has reached a home 3-5 times. And, the longer you persist, the more effective your dental marketing campaign becomes!
