The Night Before Christmas: CEATUS Edition

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and the CEATUS Media team was on edge. They were waiting for Santa. Would he come? Would he hedge?

For they had sent him a letter — they had even asked twice.
Would he agree to a makeover? He sure would look nice!

The time passed slowly — tick tock — like molasses.
If he agreed to laser eye surgery, he could read lists without glasses!

There were other things, too, that could make him feel great
And maybe even drop a little excess weight.

For one, Santa’s ruddy cheeks are likely rosacea.
He could have IPL and maybe a facial.
There’s almost no downtime, just think of the joy!
When Santa’s gifts arrive quickly to good girls and boys!

And how about Lap Band for our jolly chum,
To ensure his good health for Christmases to come.
Don’t get us wrong — he’s no lazy curmudgeon.
But we hope he contacts a qualified Ceatus surgeon.

Santa could also revamp his smile – just to mention.
He’s surrounded by sweets and his teeth need attention.
So a check-up’s in order this holiday season.
Just for a cleaning if for no other reason.

On the night before Christmas, the CEATUS team admired.
The glowing new Santa they had inspired.
He arrived jolly and laughing, in a great Christmas mood.
Still timeless St. Nick, just new and improved!

(In case you’re curious how St. Nick found all the right doctors, the answer is simple: he just plugged his requirements into CEATUS’ surgeon and dentist locator box.)

Happy Holidays!

Ask the Experts

Q: What should be the focus of my digital marketing strategy for 2018?

A: Both consumers and (importantly) Google continue to look at an increasingly wide range of online factors to make judgments about you and the quality of your services. These critical factors include primarily your practice website(s), reviews, social media engagement and off-site branding, such as citations and directory profiles.

The focus of your 2018 digital marketing strategy should be to ensure that all of these critical factors are aligned and working for you to create a comprehensive online brand!
