Case Study - "Maximum Capacity" The Story of a Start-Up and Firegang
Homegrown Dental: From opening the doors to $118K in production - in 1 month!
When Homegrown Dental opened its doors in Great Falls, Montana, they had the urge to market correctly and effectively right off the bat, they partnered with us at Firegang. What they have experienced thus far is consistently impressive, to say the least.
Homegrown is just one dental office, and so to maximize the type of growth they wanted, their marketing strategy needed to be adjusted to target a specific clientele, rather than going for just high patient volume.
With the experts at Firegang at the wheel, Homegrown began getting new clients organically with ease and laser-like precision. Their Facebook and Google Ads were fine-tuned with a personal touch and sparked an exciting influx of new viewers who would be converted into new patients with little effort.
In this case study, we will examine who is Homegrown Dental, what specific challenges they faced, what solutions were provided, and what results were achieved.
Doctor Heather Moore made an exciting jump by deciding to move her family back to her hometown, Great Falls, Montana, to start Homegrown Dental. Although this was a move that she knew was right and felt good, it was definitely not without its challenges.
Homegrown Dental was facing a challenge that is not unique. They were a brand new practice trying to establish themselves in a saturated market. When searching for dentists in Great Falls, Montana, Google Maps looked like a pin cushion.
Dr. Moore knew that she would need an expert, foolproof strategy to be able to make her mark and let the community know about the Homegrown Dental family. They would need to identify precisely what made them different and what levers to pull to bring their differentiation to the forefront.
Firegang Dental Marketing was their first (and last) company to partner with to accelerate the practice growth of Homegrown Dental.
Dr. Moore had two main priorities to focus on:
• Increasing new patient volume
• Increasing production.
Firegang partnered with Dr. Moore and set the production goal for the first year at 550k. The production goal for year two would be 800k.
Impressively, Firegang helped them reach their second-year goal of 800k within the first year! (Starting in May)
In order to reach their new patient goals, Firegang recommended a competitive Paid Ads campaign for the first few months to allow time for their SEO to grow organically. This happened remarkably fast. Homegrown actually exceeded their new patient goals. From this point, the Paid Ads budget was scaled back and organic growth took over.
The Homegrown Dental website was revamped to maximize new patient conversion. What makes them unique is clearly visible at the top of their website. Differentiating factors include sedation (above and beyond comfort options) for anxious patients and a non-insurance discount payment plan.
Currently, their Google reviews hold a solid, five-star overall rating which is very eye-catching and appealing to potential new clients. Their website is tailored for converting new patients as quickly as possible.
Homegrown Dental skipped over the painful trials and tribulations of trying to figure out their marketing on their own by partnering with Firegang Dental Marketing from the jump. They surpassed their ambitious two-year goals within the first year, including a large increase in new patient volume (that ended up being too much!) and production of 800k.
They are continuing their growth towards a more rewarding practice with more ambitious goals for next year, including going to a Fee for Service model. They are definitely on track to achieving the practice of their dreams.
