What if I told you that your “dead leads”, where actually your biggest and you’re your shortest path of new customers? You’d Say: “But, they’re DEAD!” They didn’t buy then…why in the world would they buy now?!”

Most job postings are tired, ineffective and passé. Instead, write enticing ads that woo, attract and excite. To do this, dust off those old-fashioned job descriptions that describe your company and position in a ‘professional’ and boring manner. Bring a little creative, fun and lighthearted twist, with these ideas:
Turn your postings upside down and inside out. Write from the prospective employee’s POV. Lead with job and company details that appeal to candidates instead of company demands. Get rid of postings that describe job ‘requirements’, ‘essential duties’, ‘skills expected’ and replace them with key attributes about what makes being a team member so special. This demonstrates you understand employment is a mutual value exchange and you’ll provide a great environment for it to happen.

Winning and keeping the attention of dentists to consider a new product is tougher and more expensive than it’s ever been. Marketers and sales professionals have had to get very creative to get their foot in the door and most efforts crash and burn.
We’ve made it our business for the past 25 years to get inside of the mind of the dentist. Our intent was to understand their needs, wants and expectations for products they buy, what theycontinue to use and the people and companies they choose to do business with. The data allows us to bring fresh timely insights and customer intelligence to our clients—dental manufacturers and distributors who want to do better, serve better and forge stronger relationships with the practitioners they serve.
Until recently, our research results about dentists have been reserved for our private clients. Now, we are going public with the good stuff—and you have as much to gain as our clients who have created impressive results using it.
