From digital promotions to word-of-mouth and social media, each has its own benefit. Let’s take a look at the different ways to get the word out about pet dental care:

Alert mobile app users via push notification when their pet is due for their annual dental cleaning through our Automated Reminder System and Health Service Reminders.

Mass message your veterinary client base
Email can help you achieve communication with a larger audience, including those clients who haven’t been to your clinic in the past 6-12 months. Avoid clients tuning you out by writing clear, concise, and relevant promotions for your clients. If done correctly, expect your appointment book to fill up.
PetDesk’s Mass Messaging feature allows you to do both push notifications and emails so that you can cut through the noise and reach clients quickly. You can segment your messaging by client base or patient details, ensuring that your message is tailored to their needs.

Start with something small, like a flyer. When staff distribute flyers, you’re avoiding the noise of the digital world entirely. You aren’t casting a net and hoping to reach clients — you’re going right to the source.
