LocalMed & Google: The Perfect Match
LocalMed is excited to announce that our dental providers now have another opportunity to capture potential patients and grow their practice: Google’s search results!
77% of patients search online for a healthcare provider before they book an appointment (Pew Research). When you take the world’s largest search engine and combine it with the power of the only fully-integrated, real-time online scheduling platform on the market (that’s us, hi!) - your dental practice stands out among your competitors.
Patients who search for your practice on Google will see an “appointments” link below your phone number on both search results and the expanded map results! When they click the link, patients can immediately book a confirmed appointment in real-time through your practice’s LocalMed widget. As always, our fully-integrated platform will add the patient’s appointment directly into your practice management system, no front desk follow-up required.
Enabling LocalMed scheduling on Google is easy.
If you’re a current LocalMed client, all you need is access to your practice’s verified Google My Business profile and a custom LocalMed link. Just shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you your specialized link.
Once you have your LocalMed link, all you'll need to do is:
- Sign in to Google My Business and select your location.
- Click into the URLs section
- In the “Appointment URL” field, paste your specialized LocalMed link
- Click “Apply”
