3. Talk the Talk
Clearly describe the characteristics and benefits of LightForce.
- Here are some helpful phrases you can use in the office or on social media:
"LightForce offers the world’s only 3D printed braces."
"LightForce allows orthodontists to provide true custom treatment to each and every patient."
"3D printing customizes each bracket to fit every tooth perfectly. This optimizes tooth movement, comfort for the patient, and limits chair time."
"Custom brackets result in fewer emergency appointments."
4. How to Promote LightForce On-Going
Here are some topic ideas to help you talk about LightForce with your community on an on-going basis:
- 3D Printing in the News: You can connect any 3D advancement news to LightForce in your practice.
“Amazing to think we’re 3D printing pizzas now, we’ve been offering custom 3D printing braces for some time.”
- How it’s done: Photo or video series showing how the LightForce braces system works, from scan to debond
- LF vs the Old Way: Comparing treatment times of LightForce to “stock” braces
- Patient Testimonials: Quotes or stats from LF patients
- Run a Promotion: Conduct a raffle giving away White Airpods to a random LF patient every month. The white Airpods and white brackets are a great connection.
5. How to Promote LightForce On-Going
Practices have had incredible success documenting bondings and debondings with photos and videos of LF patients. Here are some additional tips:
- Use a “Polaroid” camera: This lo-fi camera is COOL again. Go figure. We recommend purchasing one and using it for LightForce.
- Snap a photo of the patient, then take a digital photo of the polaroid and the patient and staff, which the practice and patient can share on social media.
- Use a Camera/Photo App to Capture Patients: Find an app that utilizes a consistent filter to brand your treatments. This will help differentiate your LF patients from the rest.
- Create a “LightForce Smile of Fame” Wall: As patients and parents walk through your office, having an area to acknowledge all of your LF cases and their treatment success is a great way to generate buzz.
- Create a Snapchat Geo-Filter: Based on your location around your practice, create a filter using LightForce.
6. Get Personal
We are strong supporters of the selfie-video approach to marketing.
- Take a second to film a short message on your phone to send out via social channels or over email.
- People are more likely to watch a video than read text, making these videos a free and easy way to spread the word and let us know so we can share it.
7. Highlights & Stories
Take advantage of Instagram highlights and create a separate category for new products such as LightForce.
- Add any story pictures or videos such as:
- Using LightForce in action
- Opening our packaging to show it more organized and accessible for patients.
- Smiling patients
- Be sure to tag us so we can include it in our "Partner" highlight and share on our story!
8. Prep Your Staff
Use our provided script for your Treatment Coordinator.
- Located inside your Showpad site, there is a document that covers the basics and take the stress out of trying to hit every single point about the LightForce system.
- Print out the TC script and keep it handy.
9. Stay Current
Post frequent content to your social channels that is relevant to the time of year, current events, and holidays.
- Check Showpad: We will be updating the files in your microsite accordingly so keep a look out and check on a frequent basis.
