Video Text Messaging for your Dental Practice

Three Minute Read

Incorporating video text messaging into your text-messaging platform is a powerful medium.

When you create videos, you can share new products and services or include a patient review. The possibilities are endless when you include video in your text messaging for your dental practice.

The essential part of any text messaging campaign is including a video in your patient text messages. Text messaging with video is quickly becoming the number one choice for consumers when it comes to communicating with a dental practice.

Why Use Video Text Messaging?

What to Remember About Video Text Messaging for Dentists

Be sure to include a URL that is shorter as it saves characters while tracking click-throughs.

Keep the length of the video to less than 30 seconds. People have a short attention span and you want to make sure they watch the entire video. If people think your videos are too long they may not open your message the next time.

Avoid soundtracks that incorporate both voiceover and music. If the patient isn’t using headphones, the not so great built in speaker on your phone could warble your message.
