ROI Equation

Total Revenue ÷ Total Expenses x 100 = ROI

  • The average patient’s immediate spend with the practice is £400.
  • Patients typically remain with the practice for 5 years.

A patient’s lifetime value is 5 x £400 = £2000.

It is common for our SEO campaigns to generate an additional 20+ qualified leads to the practice, with an average of 7 becoming patients.

Total Monthly Revenue from SEO: 7 x £400 = £14000 pm
Lifetime value pm = £14000 x 5 years = £70000.


Our average cost to our dental clients is £2150 per month.

(Total Revenue) £70000 ÷ £2150 (Total Expenses) x 100 = 3256% (ROI)

This means that for every £1 you spend on SEO, you would receive £32.56 in return.

Then that would equate to a loss. The above ROI figures really means that you want to choose your SEO company carefully.
