What Is an Emotional Trigger?

An emotional trigger refers to content that’s designed to tap into an existing feeling that compels someone to take action. They go beyond providing practical information or touting features. These triggers aim to fuel emotional decision-making.

For example, depicting someone frowning with bad teeth and covering their smile will awaken self-conscious feelings in an audience and trigger them to schedule a consultation for enhancement. A picture of a young child crying due to tooth pain can trigger nurturing feelings in parents and motivation to book appointments for their kids.people looking at laptop

Emotional triggers influence behavior and decision-making by appealing to deep psychological needs and desires like confidence, attractiveness, anxiety relief, responsibility, social belonging, and more. Even when prospects don’t logically need dental treatment or cosmetic work, you can sway them to act by tapping into emotions.

Common Emotional Triggers

Fear Appeals

Teeth and gum problems strike fear even in the most stoic of patients. You may try using dramatic (yet ethical) fear appeals focused on avoiding painful medical procedures due to a lack of regular dental checkups. Examples include:

  • “Are your headaches caused by a tooth infection? Don’t risk pulling teeth!”
  • “Worried your child’s growing cavities may end in emergency surgery? Come see us!”

These are common phrases used to convince patients that they should act fast when dental problems strike.

Desire for Confidence and Social Acceptance

A bright, beautiful smile goes hand in hand with self-esteem and being comfortable in your skin. Your advertising can tap into this desire, persuading potential patients that, with the right treatment, their smile can improve how they feel each and every day. Examples may include:

  • “Stained, discolored teeth? We’ll have you smiling confidently again in no time.”
  • “Invest in a smile makeover so you shine at every social occasion.”

Good Parenting and Nurturing

Parents want to provide the very best care for their children, and dental care should start at an early age. Make them feel like superheroes for their children. Some examples of this include:

  • “Be the best caregiver–get little Jimmy scheduled for his first checkup today!”
  • “Does your child grind her teeth at night? Call now to nip problems in the bud!”

Strategically Incorporate Emotion

From images to copy and beyond, add emotion to the entire structure of your ads:

  • Evocative Images: Depict happy patients, grimacing patients in pain, and closeups of dental work.
  • Emotional Questions: “Is your child’s smile worth protecting? Call today for an exam.”
  • Patient Stories: “Sarah avoided gum grafts thanks to early periodontal treatment from Dr. Smith.”
  • A/B Testing: Try different emotional hooks and see which perform best. Fear? Nurturing? Pride?

You don’t need to stick with one type of tactic or emotion. Create a variety that ensures you can grab the attention of all types of potential patients.

Reflect That Feeling on Your Landing Pages

Ok, so your ads are full of emotion; what’s next? Think of carrying that emotional momentum from your ads into custom landing pages. When creating these landing pages, you may incorporate the following:

  • Photos: Try adding anxiety-inducing dental closeups or joyful patients post-treatment.
  • Copy: “See why over 500 patients leave our office beaming with joy each month.”
  • Guarantees: “If you’re not thrilled with your smile makeover, it’s on us!” This reduces fear and anxiety.

Incorporate emotion into acquisition efforts like pay-per-click ads and corresponding landing pages. Continually A/B test what motivates patients most–the results may surprise you! Just remember to measure success based on engagement metrics, not vanity metrics.
