Dental Labs Need to Read This!

Dental Labs Need to Read This!

Carrie Kuehn - Monday, August 15, 2016

How Can a Dental Lab Compete Today Without a Professional Presence?

It’s no surprise that we have become a visual society that demands instant access to information.

Some owners will tell you, they just don’t have the time, resources or budget to invest in marketing materials and plan on continuing as they always have. But in today's economy and technology driven age, can your business really afford not to change with the times?

Dental labs using an outdated website and/or poorly designed marketing materials are giving their competition a marketing advantage.

Let’s face it, word-of-mouth used to be the best form of marketing, but times have changed drastically. Technology has quickly reshaped the way we do business in the industry. Most consumers focus on vendors who offer website interaction, a social media presence and professional marketing materials.

Dental professionals are forced to change or risk becoming extinct.
In order to compete with dental labs that offer the same quality of products and services, it is imperative that a lab demonstrates a strong professional presence. Lack of a consistent design and company branding reflected across all platforms of media could be detrimental to the lab's success.

WE CAN HELP YOUR DENTAL LAB

Everything you need all in one place, that’s the advantage of Ck2design

Dental Labs Must Avoid Becoming Extinct

Dental Labs Must Avoid Becoming Extinct

Carrie Kuehn - Monday, June 06, 2016

Is your dental lab about to becoming Extinct?

The Importance of Branding and Online Presence for the Dental Industry is often overlooked. In order for dental labs to compete in the market a professional company branding along with a strong online presence is a must.
My catch phrase, "Either you're visible or you're invisible!" is the honest truth.

Please watch my presentation below on the importance of standing out among your competitors. The last half of this short video demonstrates how an online business website can help small business owners operate a modern online system that is quick, easy to use and efficient. This is a must have for any serious dental lab, clinic or dental related company to compete in today's market.

Nowadays you need more than a basic business card and a plain old website.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to Avoid Becoming Extinct.

New online design portfolio is complete

New online design portfolio is complete

Carrie Kuehn - Monday, June 15, 2015

I finally was able to find the time to create a brand new portfolio website for myself, carriekuehn.com. For years I have gone without having a dedicated online portfolio that showed samples of my graphic design, logo design, branding, video productions, websites and more.

While there are a lot of samples on the site, you would be amazed on how many samples of work one collects over 27 years. Of course I can really only show the most recent which is of course mainly dental industry specific.

Now I can direct those requesting to see more of my work to CarrieKuehn.com.

Since that is done I am now off to redesign the Ck2design-DentalLab.com website to host more information, samples and create a responsive design site to accommodate the various digital devices being used to surf the internet.

If your website is not mobile ready, I suggest you do something about that sooner rather then later. Check out Google for more information on why it's important for your dental lab or practice to be mobile-ready.

Who Doesn't Judge a Book By It's Cover?

Who Doesn't Judge a Book By It's Cover?

Carrie Kuehn - Sunday, June 02, 2013

Back in the day before digital devices, the old saying was, "You shouldn't judge a book by it's cover" or "It's whats on the inside that counts". That might have worked back in the days before digital marketing but it sure doesn't applied to products, services or individual professionals, any more.

Who Doesn't Judge a Book By It's Cover? Each and everyone of use judges companies, products and service provider on the way they appear online and offline. 


If a company has either a unappealing website or only listing on some random business directory, or worse yet -no website at all. You can beat they are loosing many more possible customers then just myself. After all, if a company thinks it's not worth investing into their website and marketing materials, then why on earth would anyone else think it's worth doing business with them?

Since most of use are internet savvy customers with instant access to research for any product, business and service provider. If we don't like something, get bad service or have any other reason for being a unhappy customer, we all have the internet for placing reviews, comments or complaint and spread the word via social media around the world. So why on earth won't a business take the time to create a user friendly, professional website that offers customers the information they want or access to online help. Ck2design online business websites make it so easy for companies to interact and work with customers, keeping everyone happy.

Seems like common sense to have a professional presence both online and traditional marketing materials. Yet, there are still many companies out there that hang on to the thought that they are better then their competitors. And that they have always done things this way and don't need to change in order to keep up with the times.

FOR THOSE BUSINESS OWNERS WHO STILL FEEL THEY DON'T NEED TO KEEP WITH WITH OUR CHANGING TIMES, GOOD LUCK!
