Amy Got flowered

Friday 4th December 2015

For our first week in December and as it starts to get dark early, we thought we should brighten up the Dental Focus office with a really Summery selection of flowers. Amy has been flowered this week, holding a bouquet of fushia and orange giant daisies, a sunflower, roses and a variation of purple and green chrysanthemums. This week I will educate you on the history of Sunflowers. These beautiful wild flowers originate in North America and are part of the daisy family. Their bright yellow petals and the fact that they can grow very tall (if left wild can grow up to 16ft), usually directly in front of the sun for maximum growth means the ‘Sunflower’ is a very appropriate name. These flowers are also used for cooking to make butter, oil and sunflower seeds are a very popular healthy option on their own once dried out.

Come back next week to find out which team member has been flowered.

Gabi Got flowered

Friday 27th November 2015

This week we have our lovely Gabi with our flowers of the week. She is holding a beautiful bouquet of pink and purple Alstroemeria’s. These are a type of Peruvian lily and originate from South America. These flowers tend to grow in clusters and have many different colours, some of these variations are also stripy or have spots on.   They are so popular because they are very easy to grow and do not need a lot of maintenance.  They tend to grow best in warmer conditions and do well at the back of allotments where they have the space and can lean on walls to grow very tall.  However, they are very delicate and their stems tend to break if they have not got anything to lean on, the soil should be slightly acidic.  I decided to have a wilder plant in the office this week to accommodate everyone’s taste.  Come back next week to see which one of the Dental Focus team have our flowers.

Naz got flowered

Friday 20th November 2015

This week we have our very smiley operations manager Naz Haque with our weekly office flowers. I opted for some warm pale pink and white small roses and some bigger pink roses as last week we had very vibrant colours.  Pink roses are one of the longest existing flowers known to us and symbolise love and appreciation as well as gratitude. The smaller pink ones have beautifully opened up to show half pink and half white petals. They are mostly known for their sweet fragrance.

So a little bit of history about roses, Aprodite the goddess of love, is said to have created the rose, they also come from within the family Rosaceae. They are well known for being trailing shrubs and kept in the garden. Most types of roses originate and are native in Asia and North America.

Find out next week, which one of the Dental Focus team has our flowers.

Justyna got flowered

Friday 13th November 2015

This week, we have our lovely accounts manager Justyna, with our autumn bouquet.

Our flowers of the week were inspired by Halloween which we all love and they bring a splash of colour to our office.

We have yellow lilies which have opened up beautifully and even managed to get a bunch of wild berries, which add great texture to the mix. These are very seasonal and fitting to this time of the year with orange, yellow and burgundy Chrysanthemum’s, the burgundy gives us that autumn feel with their deep shade and velvet look.

Chrysanthemum’s are a variation of giant daisies and are used to symbolise peace which are used in Japanese meditation.

Kayleigh got flowered

Thursday 5th November 2015

As Autumn has most certainly kicked in and all the leaves have turned beautiful shades of red and orange, I thought it was very fitting to have some similar coloured flowers in the office this week.

We have our lovely Kayleigh with red, peach and orange roses. Red roses symbolise love and orange and peach roses symbolise new beginnings.

Find out next week which member of the team has got our office bouquet.

Alfie got flowered

Wednesday 28th October 2015

This week, the flowers in our Dental Focus office are a pink and white lily and rose combination. Every week we will have a fresh bouquet of flowers in the office ready for Monday morning. We decided to have flowers of the week because they bring brightness and freshness into our office.

Pink lilies and roses together have a meaning of aspiration and gracefulness.

As you can see, Alfie is really enjoying having the flowers by his desk because he enjoys a splash of colour in these dark winter months.

Come back next week to find out which one of the Dental Focus team have got our weekly bouquet.

Creating Trust: 5 Star Google Reviews

Reviews

Several years ago, Google became the new Yellow Pages because it started showing local businesses on the maps right at the top of Google Page 1.

Today, Google is the new Trip Advisor because clients now see reviews and stars next to their local search results. It’s no longer just about how high they rank on Google Page 1 but more importantly about how they stand out.

On average, patients are scrolling or swiping iPhones and iPads to look up and down Google Page 1, which is a mine field. All they see is blue, green and white. They don’t know who to click on because 80% of the page is pretty much shouting back the same or similar keywords they typed into search.

Today, trust is built on Google Page 1. Clients couldn’t have done this before. Now clients at Dental Focus are making it their Number One priority to have at least 5 reviews because they need at least 5 reviews for their stars to start showing next to their name and ranking.

Have you ever used Trip Advisor to help you decide on where to go for holiday or bought anything online, read the reviews and looked at the star ratings?

At Dental Focus, clients are now making sure they are “on track” with a daily system to have at least one 5 star review each week because they want to make sure that this time next year they have at least 50-100 5 star reviews next to their Google ranking. They want to make it a ‘no-brainer’ for patients to choose them on Google Page 1 because Google is the land of competition. They have no competition on their website, they literally own the entire retail space of the screen.

Clients who want patients to trust the words, testimonials, photos and videos on their website are making sure that they maximise the level of trust at first impression on Google Page 1 with over 30 5 star reviews.

What clients have realised is that when they reach ‘critical mass’, like 50-100 5 star reviews, nobody reads the Google reviews, they just see who stands out, who to trust and ‘click’ to visit the website.

Clients say that they grow their practice through word-of-mouth. When patients recommend them, their friends generally Google the ‘name’ of the practice instead of keywords. When clients have over 30 5 star reviews next to their name, it allows friends of patients to think ‘my friend was right’ because so many other people agree, strengthening word-of-mouth into a ‘no brainer’ and immediately reinforcing trust.
