COVID-19 Website Announcement Banner Now Live!

Keeping your patients and prospective patients up to date on how you are handling COVID-19 at your office is extremely important. Some offices are completely closed. Others are open for emergencies only. 

Many of our clients who have their websites powered by Connect the Doc have asked us to add a website banner to the bottom of their website or to change the “slider” image and text to reflect updates on how the practice is handling COVID-19.

However many of our clients have their websites powered by a different dental marketing company and only use Connect the Doc for its referral software or reputation management software for dentists

One of our clients told us that their website managers charged $150/hour with a 1 hour minimum for all changes, which is pretty expensive. So we built the banner with the flexibility to be able to make changes to the banner in the Connect the Doc software, without any additional changes to your website code.

We’ve also made this announcement banner free for any medical practice. All you have to do is signup for a free account and use the announcement builder to make your banner. If you’d like some help getting everything all setup, please don’t hesitate to schedule a free COVID-19 consultation with us.

The benefits of this announcement bar include:

  • Easy installation on your website
  • Banner which sits on the bottom of your site
  • Call to action on the banner which opens a pop-up
  • Banner and pop up are mobile responsive
  • Banner and pop up can be edited and updated on your site without any re-installation

Once the COVID-19 pandemic is over and your office is back to normal, we’d anticipate you keeping the banner on your website and using the “real estate” to let prospective patients know that you are accepting new patients and have free consultations. 

Please feel free to watch the video above to see how easy it is to make a banner. Keep in mind that when you sign up for the banner, you get full access to our free account, which helps you:

  • Generate more reviews on Google, Facebook, and top medical review sites
  • Get internal feedback and testimonials via different types of surveys
  • Send patients templated emails and SMS messages
  • Get more patient referrals via social media
  • Increase website conversions with an online calendar
