5 Web Design Tips for Dentists | Clicc Media Inc


Hi guys my name is Marli Espinales from
Clicc Media Inc, I’m here to share with you five different web design tips that
your practice should consider before even getting started with the design.
Let’s get to it. First you want to start with a great web host. Consider things
like server up-time and down-time, look into the history of that. The last thing
you want is for your website to be down especially during peak hours, even more
when you’re running paid ads because then no one’s gonna be able to access it
and you’re just burning money and wasting clicks. Consider a great customer
support and tech support, someone that you can reach at any hour of the day for
questions, for anything that your website might be experiencing, any error messages,
someone that you can access either to phone or through chat. Chat is my
favorite, always look for that. Also consider server speed, see how quickly
they will be able to populate your pages. Site speed isn’t very important
for SEO purposes. I know there’s a lot of web hosting companies out there and it
can be overwhelming to consider which is the best, there’s a lot of articles for
it the one that I always recommend to my clients is SiteGround, it’s great for any
website especially, WordPress. I actually have a link down below in the
description, make sure to click on that and get started. It’s very easy to sign-up, I would actually very much consider out, or recommend I’m sorry, to sign-up
for the three year plan. Just set it up, you’re going to be running your practice
for a long time, so might as well just cut the cost at the beginning, it’s a
better deal, just do the three years. 2, make sure you get an SSL certificate for
your website. Now this offers different benefits such as protecting your site
against hackers, improving site speed, showcasing of just a more secure website for your users, now SiteGround actually offers a FREE Let’s Encrypt Certificate
for all their websites, that are hosted on their platform. They also offer
different types of other certificates depending on your needs. Now if you
already have a website, but do not have a certificate installed onto your website,
contact your web host today so they can help set one up for you. And
it might be free, it might cost you something, it all depends on who you have. 3,
make sure your website is mobile friendly and responsive, that it’ll adapt
to any device that your prospect is using. More than half of the searches
that are happening on Google are happening on a mobile device, so you
definitely want to target that audience, especially when it comes to showcasing
information about your services, your pricing, office hours ,anything that might
be important to a prospective patient – you want to make sure that’s easy to
view and easy to interact with while they’re on the go. 4, make sure your
website is ADA Compliant ,which stands for Americans with Disability Act. Now this
allows anyone with a disability to better engage and interact with any
website online. This can mean from adding closed
captioning to a video on your website, or allowing for resizable text. For more
information we’ve added a link on a description so you can follow the tips
and understand what it means to be ADA Compliant. And my fifth and final tip of
the day is to make sure you always read your contract, and that you own your
website at the end the day. This includes content, images, any logins
information to your back-end, for the WordPress, domain host, web host,
anything and everything will be yours once you submit that final payment. So
make sure that you go through all the details and that you will be the sole
owner for your practices website. You don’t want to go through this whole process
and had to spend money once again. So there you have it guys,
those are my five tips for you today and I hope that your dental practice
benefits from them. If you have any other questions, any concerns, anything else
