Founded in 2011, GoAskFred.com tackles a different dental marketing topic every week – including timely, sometimes controversial issues in dentistry, healthcare and advertising. Now, over 500 posts later, the site has become the premier blog for dental practice marketing, particularly with regards to social media and new online marketing methods.

Joyal’s most popular recent posts include “Five Facebook Blunders,” “The Lessons of Uber for Dental Practices” and “Why Firing Someone Is an Act of Kindness.” In addition to weekly blog posts, GoAskFred.com also features videos, whitepapers and recorded webinars, and is a complete marketing resource for dentists and office staff. Readers are invited to comment, debate and suggest new topics, contributing to a thriving online discussion between dental professionals.

“Everything you do in your practice makes an impression on the patient and determines whether or not they will return,” explained Fred Joyal. “GoAskFred.com offers practical and easy to implement tips to keep your practice running smooth and your patients coming back.”

GoAskFred was launched following the success of Joyal’s best-selling dental marketing book, Everything is Marketing: The Ultimate Strategy for Dental Practice Growth – soon to be in its 5th edition. The blog recently reached 10,000 views per week and continues to grow.
