Updated list of Global Beermoney opportunities (+180!) - June 2020

Updated list of Global Beermoney opportunities (+180!) - June 2020

Introduction

The current, and now previous, Beermoney Global list started nearly 5 years ago. It’s been updated and has grown over all that time, but it also became a hassle to keep current. It was time to build a new list from scratch based on my experience in the Beermoney world over all these years and all the contributions all of you have been making in this sub.
The lists consist of opportunities that are available in at least one country that is not the US. This means there are sites which only work in Canada or the UK. There’s sites which are open to the whole world, but this does not mean everyone can really earn something on it. It’s all still very demographic and therefore location dependent. This list should give you a starting point to try out and find what works for you. I’m not using everything myself as I prefer to focus on a few, so not all are tested by me. They are found in this sub, other subreddits and other resources where people claim to have success.
I’ve chosen the format of a simple table with the bare minimum of information to keep things clean. It includes a link, how you earn, personal payment proof if available and sign-up bonus codes if applicable. Some of these bonuses are also one-time use codes specifically made for this sub! For the ones I don’t have payment proof (yet) feel free to provide some as a comment or via modmail so others know it’s legit. I am working on detailed instructions for each method that I personally use which will include things like cashout minimum, cashout options, tips & tricks,... For now I’ve split things up based on the type of earning like passive or mobile. Because of this there’s sometimes an overlap as some are both passive and on mobile or both earning crypto and a GPT (Get Paid To) website.
The lists are obviously not complete so I invite you to keep posting new ones in the sub, as a comment to this post, or in modmail. Especially if you have sites or apps which work for one single specific country I can start building a list, just like I did for The Netherlands and Belgium. If you recognize things which are in fact scams or not worth it let me know as well.

The Netherlands specific
For The Netherlands there are a few very good options next to a bunch of ‘spaarprogramma’s. There ‘spaarprogramma’s are all the same where you receive and click a bunch of e-mails, advertisements, banners,... I advise you to create a separate e-mail address or use a good filter in your inbox as you will be spammed to death. I believe they can be a nice piece of beermoney but they take quite the effort.

You're leaving tons of money on the table by not using Klaviyo flows!

Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with Klaviyo, just sharing my insights after switching over a few months ago.
I've been using Mailchimp since starting my brand in 2015, and a few months ago I was looking for more ways to automate the business. I learned about Klaviyo flows and hopped on a trial, and let's just say I am super pissed for not switching over earlier. Yes, Klaviyo is a bit more expensive but the features totally justify it and blows Mailchimp out of the water. Flows are absolutely Godly for brands who want to create a much more customer-centric experience, and automate everything from follow-ups to dishing out coupon codes, etc.
Here's my flows Dashboard from the last 30 days: https://imgur.com/a/ufP5XAA
Some tips for anyone thinking of doing something similar.
  1. If you use Aftership and Smile.io rewards program like myself, you can integrate both with Klaviyo. I have a flow setup to where customers will receive a rewards points email the day after receiving their delivery (based on Aftership delivery trigger): Open rate: 54% Goal: Repeat purchases Subject line: Congrats, {{ first_name }}! You've earned [your brand name] points for your purchase.
  2. 5 days after the rewards email, a customer will then receive a PERSONAL email to follow-up on their order. Open rate: 51% Goal: Customer retention, adding personal connection to brand, build loyalty Subject line: My personal thanks to you {{ first_name }} Body: Hi [customer first name], Thank you so much for your recent [your brand name] order - We’re so happy you decided to check us out. I just wanted to quickly check in to make sure your [product] are everything you hoped for and if there’s anything else I can help you with. We’re here for you at any time, so make sure to shout if there’s anything we can do for you. I'll be your free personal assistant moving forward for all-things-[brand name]. 😊 Be in touch, [your name] [brand logo] [website link]
I'm still working on building a better abandoned cart flow so nothing to share here besides the fact you can create dynamic coupons that expire based on your flows.
Last week I implemented a Privy and Klaviyo flow for popup discounts with first-time visitors so still testing. Klaviyo doesn't offer much customization when it comes to popups, which is why I use Privy. To do this, you will pretty much just add a hidden field into the Privy campaign, for example, PRIVYPOPUP10. Then in the Klaviyo flow, you'd need to add a Flow Filter where the hidden field equals PRIVYPOPUP10. So based off that trigger, Klaviyo will then send customer an email containing a discount code.
Klaviyo takes some getting used to and there's a slight learning curve, but I highly recommend it. If you're still using Mailchimp or any other platforms which don't offer automation flows, you are behind and outdated. The great thing about it is a Klaviyo rep will get on a screenshare call with you and show you thee ins and outs of the platform.
Don't leave dollars on the table $$$.

How I earn a Full-time income online + Offers & More

So first start by saying I have "Real" Online work but it requires me to work about 30 mins a day... I work on this other stuff 8-10 hours a day and earn a full-time income alone from this stuff alone...
I'm not including any affiliate signs ups I get when I say earning a living from this
I highly advise you get a cheap Laptop to work on... You cant use your phone ( for the work stuff )
I would recommend something like a Thinkpad 430i, I'm pretty sure I bought one for £85 as I needed a cheap laptop for something else and its been solid
normally they come with dud batteries, You can find a replacement HERE
Appen | non-ref ( I will get $25 if you work I think its 100 hours )
Neevo
Clickworker | non-Ref ( I will get 5 when you earn 10 )
Prolific.co
Populus Live
GG2U $1 Bonus | non-ref ( No Bonus ) - I will get 5% of what you earn
Timebucks(I think $1 bonus) | Non-Ref ( No Bonus ) - I will earn 15% of what you earn

Panelbase - Sign up HERE ( Quidco £10 Bonus )| Non- Ref ( No Bonus ) - Quidco will pay you £0.80p to sign up and if you sign up through my link you will also get a £10 bonus on Quidco when you reach £5 cashback
Some decent surveys on here, I normally check and do them when they are over £1

I mainly focus my time on Appen, If there is no work on Appen then I will see if there are tasks on Neevo if not then I move to the other sites... I only use the lower-paying survey sites when I have nothing else to do
I still do have something that guaranteed you money regardless, So even if I have a slow do saying this there is no pressure because my other work is there. This past week happen has been slow for me but I was able to smash out thousands of tasks on Neevo which made that up
-----
Here is also some good offers on a few different sites, They should be the highest paying for that offer
TopCashBack - REF (£5 BONUS ) | NON-REF( NO BONUS)
You will get the bonus once you reach £10 payable cashback
Once you have signed up, here are the offers
They also have a £15 Cashback on a Just Eat order of £15, Worth it for some free food

booking buddy - 2p ( Can do 3x per day ) - Make a search.
----
Swagbucks - REF ( Around £4 BONUS ) | NON-REF ( NO BONUS )
To get the £4 bonus you need to earn 300SB in your first month, Since the offers at the bottom I would do the two offers listed, Then make the rest up by doing 3/4 Surveys but other than this please do not waste your time on Swagbucks doing surveys, I only do them if to complete swago or if they are pretty high paying.
AyeT- CyberGhost VPN Free Trial - 54SB
Adgem - Norton VPN Free Trial - 63SB
100SB Bonus - Install the Swagbutton
Rise of Kingdoms - 4000SB - Get to hall Level 17
Lottoland - 1300SB - Click the offer and it will take you to the sign-up and will cost £1 ( Make sure auto-renewal isn't on )
-----
GG2U - REF( I think you get $1 Bonus ) | NON-REF ( No $1 if there is a bonus )
William hill ( Find this under Gaming Offers ) - Deposit £10 and wager £10 - Around £27 Back
Normally the Gala offers pay higher but none of them are available anywhere, Normally pay around £40, on TCB or Quidco but they have no offers right now for them
---
Ysense - REF( Don't think there is a bonus |NON - REF
Click Offers, Then Offertory
Final Fantasy 100K Power - $10.16. I did this before and I spent £1 and completed really quickly, It was an XP reward I bought, It gave millions of Hero XP which gave enough power
I highly advise you don't waste time on this site doing surveys
----
Lionbridge - Like happen but this is more strict and I also found Appen paid more for the Project I am on.
Teamwork- Like Appen and Lionbridge, I have done some work for them in the past everything was fine and paid on time.
Apple at Home Advisor - Work at home Advisor for Apple. Pretty sure they send you an iMac to work on tho I could be wrong
Pretty sure Amazon has remote work also. If you google a company and then "Remote" or at home, It should let you see if they have work
-
I had these 3 on a list Its transcription work but Appen, Lionbridge, and Teamwork offer this and probably best going for them.

Sites/Apps that are legit + my thoughts on them
Swagbucks ( Around £4 Bonus ) | non-ref ( No Bonus )
I only do offers on here but I always check other sites before doing them to see if better paying elsewhere and I do swago when it comes up - Do not do surveys unless they are offering a few £ as they normally DQ - Only do Offers, Don't waste your time on anything else
Serpclix| non-ref
You install the plugin and it pops up with a task to search for a website... I barely use it but I would say its worth using for some extra cash ( Some users say £10-£30 a month on here )
Branded Surveys| non-ref
Had a few payouts, Too many DQ would avoid unless nothing else
Life Points
Had some decent paying surveys, But too many DQ.. I would personally avoid
Qmee ( 50p Bonus ) | non-ref ( No Bonus )
In my opinion, it's not worth the time, I do probably 1 or 2 surveys per week and I only touch the ones 75p + unless they take to long... I don't think you should focus anytime on it unless you have nothing else.
Ysense
Don't waste your time, I listed an offer for it above other than them offers.. Don't bother, People only want sign-ups to this cause they pay like 15% of earnings and I think around £5 when someone reached a certain amount
SliceThePie- Don't bother, Its clearly about 10p an hour
HoneyGain ($5 Bonus I think ) | Non- Ref ( No Bonus )
It uses your unused internet in the background, it's perfectly safe personally for me I've not had much luck but it comes down to location and how many devices you are using
20Cogs ( £20 Bonus on cashout ) | Non-ref ( No Bonus )
This is legit but most offers do pay better elsewhere and you need to hit 20 confirmed cogs before they payout, I have done offers on here and have my 20cogs pending but make sure you always check other sites to make sure you are getting the most amount of profit... I mostly do offers on here that I have not seen anywhere else.
PrizeRebel - Don't waste your time.
Microworkers - Can pay decent if you can rattle off some fast task but - Its a pain to get paid, Customer service pretty much ignores you and a lot of the jobs and links are sketchy as hell
---
I know nothing about this stuff but you can also teach English online and get paid for it. You might need an ESL certificate. The pay is pretty decent if you can get work If this is something you are interested in I highly advise you do some research for it because its decent work
vipkid- Teach English to kids online, If you want to find more I would advise you to look through Reddit as a lot of users on here use this for work, There are more sites than just this that you can work for, I think they pay from $15-$25 per hour.
QKid- Same as vipkid teaching English online- I think this pays up to $20 per hour
gogokid- Teach English Online $14-25 per hour
There will be more sites than this but these are the ones I know of.
----
Amazon FBA
I don't recommend you bring crap in from china there is enough of that,,, My advise would start small, Start by Buying stock from Supermarkets or other online retailers this is called retail arbitrage and then sending that in but make sure you are allowed to sell in that category, also if your going down the video game route that you sell Used video games and older back catalog titles as these hold higher profit margins than new stock, Lego, Toys, etc are good things to keep an eye out for you can also look for this sort of stuff on the Facebook market place
There is very little profit in new stock unless you can pick it up and most of the time you'd be selling at a loss because the big retailers can sell it for the price you buy it
Use Amazons courier ( they use ups) it's like £5 to send in a 15KG Box
Get the hang of it to figure out what works for YOU! Don't follow anyone on youtube and what they say to do... Of course, if you want to make serious money which you can do, You will need to get suppliers, etc but no one will tell you where to get these, and the ones found easily through google search will make you very little if any money using... Here is also some things I recommend using ( I use them or have used them )
Barcode Scanner ( I only use my PC so need scanner )
Barcode Scanner With Stand
Epson XP-3100
FBA Labels
Bags - I use a mixture of different one but these are fine for smaller things.
You don't need to buy the best printer or anything like that these work perfectly fine... You only need that stuff if you're doing thousands of labels per day
As I said before, Don't be scared to try this its actually pretty fun and can make good money just please people on youtube UK and US, Try it see what works for you
Also Amazon handmade but I still think Facebook is a great way to start selling handmade stuff ( if its quality )
-
Gambling
First, I recommend you don't touch anything to do with this stuff if you have any mental health problems, feel lonely, etc this can ruin your life if you go off the deep end
Matched Betting - You can make good money from this and I think everyone should do it, It's not complicated once you get the hang of it but don't use Profit Accumulator or the other one that charges £17 a month, in my opinion, it isn't worth it ... You could use something like Team Profit to get the hang of it and then take the £1 profit accumulator trial then get more info from there but cancel before the £17 month
The more money you have to do this the more you're going to make, It can be pretty slow if you are starting with a low amount of money but when you're doing these, Make sure you check cashback sites or offerwalls to see if they will pay you for signing up
People promote PA because they have a good affiliate program

Gambling CPA/RS
This is different and you need a website or social media platform, You would have deals with the casinos, Bookmakers, etc But the money, if you get it right, is absolutely ridiculous... This is why you see these guys on youtube spinning such high amount of cash on the casino, If you are good at building sites or have a boatload of cash to chuck at this
You would post them and when people sign up through your link you could be on CPA ( Cost per Acquisition ) RS= Revenue share, So you would get % of a player losses or you could be on a hybrid
This money is life-changing if you get it right but since there is so much cash it is not easy... These sites are spending 10s of thousands a month to be at the top search results.
----

Cashback Websites
JoinHoney | non-ref - Saves you money by searching for coupon codes, I place a monthly order on a website and it saves me between 20-40 each time, Well worth installing when you shop online
TopCashBack (£5 Bonus ) | nonref ( No Bonus )
£5 Bonus once you reach £10 payable cashback, I listed some good deals at the top of the post ( Check yourself for more on the site ) Also can save money when shopping online
Quidco (£10 Bonus) |non-ref ( No bonus )
You get the £10 bonus once you reach £5 cashback, Same as top cashback... Some offers listed above and you can also get cashback shopping online
--
My favorite Offer
Xendpay (£10 Bonus | non-ref( No bonus )
Sign up and Verify your account, Make a transfer of £100 and you will get £10 free.. You can just transfer the money to yourself but you will need an account that takes euros as you need to send £ to euro
-
Before you sign up to an offer on this sub, Please check on cashback sites to see if they pay more than a ref link, Example is the Azimo link it has been posted on this sub on the past few days, You only get £10 from that but you will get £25 through Quidco + £10 bonus if you are new to the site
There is also a scam that's posted a lot on Reddit, They claim to pay you $25 to sign up then $25 per person you sign up, This is a scam they go by a few different names sites all look the same with the same fake payouts
I hope this helps someone out.

How to achieve explosive startup growth!

Here is the summary of the book Traction: How any startup can achieve explosive growth.
I hope that you find it useful!

Traction is a sign that your startup is taking off. If you charge, it means customers are buying. If your product is free, it means your user base is growing.
If you have traction, all your technical, market, and team risks become easier to handle. It becomes easier to fund-raise, hire, do press, partnerships, and acquisitions.
Traction trumps everything.

How to think about Traction?

Almost every failed startup has a product. What failed startups don’t have is enough customers.
You should spend your time in parallel, both constructing your product and testing traction channels.
This is what we call the 50 percent rule: spend 50 percent of your time on product and 50% on traction. This rule seems simple but it’s hard to follow because the pull to spend all your attention on the product is strong. You’re probably making a startup because you want to build a particular product. You have a vision, but a lot of traction activities are unknown and outside your vision and comfort zone. So you try to avoid them. Don’t.
Doing product and traction in parallel has these benefits:
Before trying to get traction, you’ll need to define what traction means for your company. You need to set a traction goal. Maybe your current startup goal is to raise funding or become profitable. How many customers do you need and at what rate? You should then focus on marketing activities that result in a significant impact on your traction goal. It should move the needle.
Your startup has 3 phases:

Phase I: Make something people want

In phase 1, your product has the most leaks, it really doesn’t hold water. You shouldn’t scale up your efforts now, but it’s important to send a small amount of water through the bucket so you can see where the holes are and plug them. \ Your goal in phase 1 is to get your first customers and prove your product can get traction. You focus on building your initial product and getting traction in ways that don’t scale: giving talks, writing guest posts, emailing people you know, attending conferences, and doing whatever you can to get in front of customers.

Some founders believe that startups either take off or don’t. Actually startups take off because the founders make them take off!
– Paul Graham

Phase II: Market something people want

Once you hone your product, you have product-market fit and customers are sticking around. Now is the time to scale up your traction efforts. You fine-tune your positioning and marketing messages.

Phase III: Scale your business

As your company grows, smaller traction strategies stop moving the needle, so you’ll start to scale.
In phase 3 you have an established business model and significant position in the market, and you’re focused on scaling to further dominate the market and to profit.

Traction for funding

When pursuing funding, first contact individuals who understand what you’re working on. The better your investors understand what you’re doing, the less traction they’ll need to see before they invest. Also, try friends and family who may not need to see any traction before investing as they’re investing in you personally.

To pivot or not to pivot

Many startups give up way too early. The first thing to look for is evidence of real product engagement, even if it’s only a few dedicated customers. If you have such an engagement, you might be giving up too soon. Look for the bright spots in your customer base and see if you can expand from that base.

How to get traction? The Bullseye framework

The Bullseye framework helps you find the channel that will get you traction. Most businesses actually get zero distribution channels to work. If you can get even a single distribution channel to work, you have a great business. If you try for several but don’t nail one, you’re finished.
You’re aiming for bullseye: the one channel at the center of the target that will unlock your next growth stage. Here are the 3 Bullseye framework steps:

Find what’s possible: The outer-ring

The first step in Bullseye is brainstorming every single traction channel. It’s important not to dismiss any channel in this step. Think of at least one idea for each channel. For example, social ads is a traction channel. Running ads on Facebook or Twitter is a channel strategy within social ads. You could research what marketing strategies worked in your industry as well as the history of companies in your space.

Find what’s probable: The middle-ring

Go around your outer-ring and promote your best and most exciting ideas to your middle-ring. For each traction channel in your middle ring, now construct a cheap traction test you can run to find if the idea is good or not. These tests need to answer the following questions:
  1. What’s the cost of acquiring customers?
  2. How many customers are available?
  3. Are they the right type of customers for you now?
You want to design small scale tests that don’t require much up-front cost or effort. For example, run 4 Facebook ads instead of 40.

Find what’s working: The inner-ring

The final step in Bullseye is to only focus on one channel that will move the needle for your startup: your core channel. At any stage of your startup, you should have one traction channel that you’re focusing on and optimizing.
Most founders mess this up by keeping around distracting marketing efforts in other channels.
If search engine marketing is significantly better for you than other channels, you should focus all your efforts on this core channel and uncover additional strategies and tactics within it.
If no channel seems promising after testing, the whole process should be repeated. If you tried several times with no success, then your product may require more tweaking and your bucket might be still leaky.

How to test traction?

Middle-ring tests: You should be running several cheap tests that give you an indication of how successful a given channel strategy could be.
Inner ring tests:
You’re doing two things:
  1. Optimize your chosen channel strategy to make it the best it can be.
  2. Discover better channel strategies within this traction channel.
There is always a set of things you can tweak. For targeting blogs, you can tweak which blogs to target, type of content, call to action, etc. For search engine marketing, you can tweak keywords, ad-copy, demographics, and landing pages.
A common approach is to use A/B testing, where A is the control group and B is the experimental group. The purpose of it is to measure the effectiveness of change in a button color, an ad image, or a different message on a web page. If the experimental group performs significantly better, you can apply the change, get the benefits, and run another test.
You can use tools such as Optimizely, Visual Website Optimizer, and Unbounce.
Over time, all marketing channels become saturated. To combat this, you should always be trying to discover new strategies and tactics within your channel and conduct small experiments. Also, experiment with new marketing platforms while they’re still in their infancy.

Tools

To track your tests you could start with a simple spreadsheet or use an analytics tool with cohort analysis. You’ll need to answer these questions:
  1. How many people landed on the website?
  2. What are the demographics of my best and worst customers?
  3. Are customers who interact with my support team more likely to stay?
A basic analytics tool like Clicky, Mixpanel, or Chartbeat can help you with these questions. You can use a spreadsheet as the tool to rank and prioritize traction channel strategies. You should include columns like how many customers are available, conversion rate, the cost to acquire a customer, lifetime value of a customer for every given strategy.

How to focus on the right traction goals? The critical path framework

Define your traction goal

You should always have an explicit traction goal you’re working towards. This could be 1,000 paying customers or 100 new daily customers, or 10% of your market. You want a goal where hitting the mark would change things significantly for your company’s outcome.
Once that is defined, you can work backward and set clear time-based subgoals. Such as reaching 1,000 customers by next quarter.
The key is to follow the critical path towards that goal and exclude all features and marketing activities that don’t help you reach your goal. Everything you decide to do should be assessed against your critical path.

Avoid traction biases

Your competitive advantage may be acquiring customers in ways your competition isn’t. That’s why it’s critical to avoid have traction biases. Stop your urge to refuse channels like speaking engagements, sales or affiliate marketing, business development, or trade shows just because you hate talking on the phone or you find the channel annoying or time-consuming.

Targetting blogs

Targeting blogs that your prospective customers read is one of the best ways to get your first wave customers.
Mint’s initial series of tests revealed that targeting blogs should be its core channel. They asked users to embed an “I want mint” badge on their personal blogs and rewarded them with a VIP access before other invitations were sent out. They also directly sponsored blogs. They sent bloggers a message with “Can I send you $500” as the subject and told them a bit about the product.
To find smaller blogs in your niche:
You can also target link-sharing communities like Reddit, Product Hunt, and Hacker News.
Dropbox, Codecademy, Quora, and Gumroad all got their first customers by sharing their products on HackerNews because their products were a good fit for users on that site.

Publicity

Starting out, an article in TechCrunch or The Huffington Post can boost your startup in the eyes of potential customers, investors, or partners. If you have a fascinating story with broad appeal, media outlets will want to hear from you.
It’s easier to start smaller when targeting big media outlets. Sites like TechCrunch and Lifehacker often pick up stories from smaller forums like Hacker News and subreddits. Instead of approaching TechCrunch, try blogs that TechCrunch reads and get story ideas from. It’s easier to get a smaller blog’s attention. Then you might get featured on TechCrunch and then The New York Times which reads TechCrunch!
What gets a reporter’s attention?
A good press angle makes people react emotionally. If it’s not interesting enough to elicit emotion, you don’t have a story worth pitching.
A good first step is using a service like Help A Reporter Out (HARO), where reporters request sources for articles they’re working on. It could get you a mention in the piece and help establish your credibility. Also, you could offer reporters commentary on stories related to your industries.
You can use Twitter to reach reporters online; almost all of them have Twitter accounts and you’d be surprised how few followers many of them have, but they can be highly influential with their content.
Once you have a solid story, you want to draw as much attention to it as you can:
Once your story has been established as a popular news item, try to drag it out as long as you can. Offer interviews that add to the story. Start “How We Did This” follow-up interviews.
As your startup grows you may consider hiring a PR firm or consultant.

Unconventional PR

Nearly every company attempts traditional publicity, but only a few focus on stunts and other unconventional ways to get buzz.

The publicity stunt

Customer Appreciation

Be awesome to your customers. Shortly after Alexis Ohanian launched Hipmunk, he sent out luggage tags and a handwritten note to the first several hundred people who mentioned the site on Twitter.
Holding a contest is also a great repeatable way to generate publicity and get word of mouth. Shopify has an annual Build a Business competition.
Great customer support is so rare that, if you make your customers happy, they’re likely to spread the news of your awesome product. Zappos is one of the best-known examples of a company with incredible customer service and they classify support as a marketing investment.

Search Engine Marketing (SEM)

SEM is placing ads on search engines like Google. It’s sometimes called “pay-per-click” because you only pay when a user clicks on an ad.
SEM works well for companies looking to sell directly to their target customer. You’re capturing people who are actively searching for solutions.
Click-Through Rate (CTR) The percentage of ad impressions that result in clicks to your site.
Cost per Click (CPC) The amount it costs to buy a click on an ad.
Cost per Acquisition (CPA) How much it costs you to acquire a customer, not just a click. If you buy clicks at $1 and 10% of people who hit your site make a purchase. This makes your CPA at $10.
CPA = CPC / conversion percentage

SEM to get early customer data

You can use SEM as a way to get early customer data in a controlled and predictable way. Even if you don’t expect to be profitable, you can decide to spend a certain amount of money to get an early base of customers and users to inform you about important metrics such as landing page conversion rates, average cost per customer, and lifetime value.
Archives.com used AdWords to drive traffic to their landing pages, even before they built a product, to test interest in a specific product approach. By measuring the CTR for each ad and conversions, they determined which product aspects were the most compelling to potential customers and what those people would actually pay for. When they finally built their product, they built something they knew the market would want.

SEM strategy

Find high-potential keywords, group them into ad groups, and test different ad copy and landing pages within each ad group. As data flows in, remove underperforming ads and landing pages and make tweaks to keep improving results.
Use tools like Optimizely and Visual Website Optimizer to run A/B tests on your landing pages.

Keyword research

Use Google’s keyword planner to discover top keywords your target customers use to find products like yours. You could also use tools such as KeywordSpy, SEMrush, and SpyFu to discover keywords your competition is using.
You can refine your keyword list by adding more terms to the end of each base term to create long-tail keywords. They’re less competitive and have lower search volumes which makes them ideal for testing on smaller groups of customers.
SEM is more expensive for more competitive keywords, so you’ll need to limit yourself to keywords with profitable conversion rates.
You shouldn’t expect your campaigns to be profitable right away, but if you can run a campaign that breaks even after a short period of time, then SEM could be an excellent channel for you to focus on.

Writing ads

Write ads with titles that are catchy, memorable, and relevant to the keywords you’ve paired with it. Include the keyword at least once in the body of your ad and conclude with a prominent call to action like “Check out discounted Nike sneakers!”
Each of your ads and ad groups will have a quality score associated with it. A high-quality score will get you better ad placements and better ad pricing. Click-through rate has the biggest influence on quality score, so you should tailor your ads to the keywords. Google assigns a low-quality score to ads with CTRs below 1.5%

Tactics

Social and Display Ads

Display ads are banner ads you see on websites. Social ads are ads you see on social sites like Facebook and Twitter.
Large display campaigns are often used for branding and awareness, much like offline ads. They can also elicit a direct response such as signing up for an email newsletter or buying a product.
Social ads perform exceptionally well is when they’re used to build an audience and engage with them over time, and eventually convert them to customers.

Display ads

The largest display ad networks are Google Display Network, BuySellAds, Advertising.com, Tribal Fusion, Conversant, and Adblade. Niche ad networks focus on smaller sites that fit certain audience demographics, such as dog lovers or Apple fanatics.
To get started in display advertising, you could start to find out types of ads that work in your industry. You could use tools like MixRank and Adbeat to show you ads your competitors are running and where they place them. Alexa and Quantcast can help you determine who visits the sites that feature your competitors’ ads.

Social ads

Social ads work well for creating interest among potential new customers. The goal is often awareness oriented, not conversion oriented. A purchase takes place further down the line. People visit social media sites for entertainment and interaction, not to see ads.
An effective social ad strategy takes advantage of this reality. Use ads to start conversations about your products by creating compelling content. Instead of directing people to a conversion page, direct them to a piece of content that explains why you developed your product or has other purposes than immediately completing a sale. If you have a piece of content that has high organic reach, when you put paid ads behind that piece, magic happens. Paid is only as good as the content you put behind it. You should employ social ads when you know that a fire is starting around your message and you want to put more oil on it.
Major social sites you may consider are LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, Foursquare, Tumblr, Reddit, YouTube, and many others.

Offline Ads

Even today, advertisers spend more on offline ads than they do online. When buying offline ads, You should try to advertise to demographics that match up with your target audience. Ask for an audience prospectus or ad kit.
Not sure if magazine ads are a good channel for you? Buy a small ad in a niche publication and give it a test. Want to see if newspapers would be good? Buy a few ads in a local paper. You can also try radio ads and billboards.

Magazine ads

A compelling magazine or newspaper ad will have an attention-grabbing header, an eye-catching graphic, and a description of the product’s benefits. Also, you should have a strong call to action, like an offer to get a free book.

Direct mail

You could also try direct mail by searching for “direct mail lists” and find companies selling such information. (Beware that it can be perceived as spammy)

Local print

You could also try local print ads like local fliers, directories, calendars, church bulletins, community newsletters, coupon booklets, or yellow pages. These work really well for cheap if you want to get early traction for your company in a specific area.

Outdoor advertising

If you want to buy space on a billboard, you could contact companies like Lamar, Clear Channel, or Outfront Media. Billboards aren’t effective for people to take immediate action, but it’s extremely effective for raising awareness around events, like concerts and conferences.
DuckDuckGo bought a billboard in Google’s backyard and it got big attention and press coverage.
Transit ads can be effective as a direct response tool. You can contact Blue Line Media to help you with Transit ads.

Radio and TV

Radio ads are priced on a cost per point (CPP) basis, where each point represents what it will cost to reach 1% of the station’s listeners. It also depends on your market, when the commercial runs and how many ads you’ve bought.
TV ads are often used as branding mechanisms. Quality is critical for it and production costs can run to tens of thousands. Higher-end ones can cost $200K to make. You’ll also need an average of $350,000 for actual airtime. For smaller startups, you could try local TV spots which is much cheaper.
Infomercials work really well for products in categories like Workout equipment, household products, health products, and work-from-home businesses. They can cost between $50,000 and $500,000, and they’re always direct-response.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

SEO is improving your ranking in search engines in order to get more people to your site.
The most important thing to know about SEO is that the more high-quality links you have to a given site or page, the higher it will rank. You should also make sure you’re using the keywords you want to target appropriately on your pages, like in your page titles and headings.
There are 2 strategies to choose from: fat-head and long-tail.
Fat-head: These are one and two-word searches like “Dishwashers,” and “Facebook.” They are searched a lot and make about 30% of searches and are called.
Long-tail: These are longer searches that don’t get searched as much but add up to the majority of searches made. They make up 70% of searches.
When determining which strategy to use, you should keep in mind that the percentage of clicks drops off dramatically as you rank lower. Only 10% of clicks occur beyond the first page.

Fat-head strategy

To find out if fat-head is worthwhile, research what terms people use to find products in your industry, and then see if search volumes are large enough to move the needle. You can use the keyword planner tool for that. You want to find terms that have enough volume such that if you captured 10% for a given term, it would be meaningful.
The next step is determining the difficulty of ranking high for each term. Use tools like Open Site Explorer. If a competitor has thousands of links for a term, it will likely take a lot of focus on building links and optimizing to rank above them.
Next, narrow your list of targeted keywords to just a handful. Go to Google Trends to see how your keywords have been doing. Are they searched more or less often in the last year? You can further test keywords by buying SEM ads against them. If they convert well, then you have an indication that these keywords could get you strong growth.
Next, orient your site around the terms you’ve chosen. Include phrases you are targeting in your page titles and homepage. Get other sites to link to your site. Links with exact phrase matching from high-quality sites will give you a significant boost.

Long-Tail strategy

Because it’s difficult to rank high for competitive fat-head terms, a popular SEO strategy for early-stage startups is to focus on long-tail. If you bundle a lot of long-term keywords together you can reach a meaningful number of customers.
Find out what are search volumes for a bunch of long-tail keywords in your industry? Do they add up to meaningful amounts? Also, take a look at the analytics software you use on your site or google search console to find some of the search terms people are already using to get to your site. If you’re naturally getting a significant amount of traffic from long-tail keywords, then the strategy might be a good fit. Also, check if competitors use this strategy. If they have a lot of landing pages (search for site:domain.com in google), then it’s a sign that this strategy works for your market. Also, check Alexa search rankings and look at the percentage of visitors your competitors are receiving from search.
If you proceed with a long-tail SEO strategy, you’ll need to produce significant amounts of quality content. If you can’t invest time in that, you can pay a freelancer from Upwork to write an article for every search phrase you want to target.
Another way is to use content that naturally flows from your business. Ask yourself: what data do we naturally collect or generate that other people may find useful. Large businesses like Yelp, TripAdvisor, and Wikipedia all gained most of their traffic by producing automated long-tail content. Sometimes the data is hidden behind a login screen and all you need to do is expose it to search engines, or aggregate it in a useful manner.

How to get links?

Don’t buy links, you’ll be penalized by search engines for it. Instead, you can do:

Content Marketing

Companies like Moz and Unbounce have well-known company blogs that are their biggest source of customer acquisition.
Unbounce started a blog and an email list from day one. They used social media to drive readers to your blog. They pinged twitter influencers to ask for feedback, gave away free infographics, and e-books. These actions don’t scale but they push them to a point where their content will spread on its own.
OkCupid is a free online dating site. They intentionally wrote controversial posts like “How your race affects the messages you get” to generate traffic and conversation.

Tactics

Email Marketing

Email marketing is a personal channel. Messages from your company sit next to emails from friends and family. That’s why email marketing works best when personalized. It can be used to build familiarity with prospects, acquire customers, and retain customers you already have.

Email marketing to Find customers

Email marketing to Engage customers

If a customer never gets the value of your product, how can you expect them to pay for it or recommend it to others?

Email marketing to Retain customers

Email marketing can be the most effective channel to bring people back to your site. Twitter sends you an email with a weekly digest of popular tweets and your new notifications.
More business-oriented products usually focus on reminders, reports, and information about how you’re getting value from the product. Mint sends a weekly financial summary to show your expenses and income over the previous week.
You can also use it to surprise and delight your customers. Planscope sends a weekly email to customers telling them how much they made that week. Photo apps will send you pictures you took a year ago.

Email marketing to Drive revenue

You can send a series of emails aimed at upselling customers.
WP Engine sends prospects an email course about Wordpress, and near the end of the email, they make a pitch to signup for its premium Wordpress hosting service.
If one of your customers abandoned a shopping cart, send her a targeted email a day or two later with a special offer for whatever item is left in the cart.
You can use email to explain a premium feature a customer is missing out on and how it can help them in a big way.

Email marketing to get referrals

Groupon generates referrals by incentivizing people to tell their friends about discounts.

Tactics

Viral Marketing

Viral marketing is getting your existing customers to refer others to your product. It was the driving force behind the explosive growth of Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Dropbox, Instagram, Snapchat, and Pinterest.
It’s so powerful that even if you can’t achieve exponential growth with it, you can still get meaningful growth. If your customer refers a new customer within the first week, you’ll go from ten customers to twenty and double every week without any additional marketing.
The oldest form of virality occurs when your product is so remarkable that people naturally tell others about it — pure word of mouth.
Inherent virality occurs when you can get value from a product only by inviting other customers, like Skype, Snapchat, and WhatsApp.
Others grow by encouraging collaboration like Google Docs.
Some embed virality like adding “Get a free email account with Hotmail” or “Sent from iPhone” to default signatures. Mailchimp and other email marketing products add branding to free customers’ emails.
Some incentivize customers to move through a viral loop, like Dropbox giving you more space if you invite friends to sign up. Airbnb, Uber, and PayPal give you account credits for referring friends.
Some add embedded buttons and widgets to grow virally, like Reddit and YouTube.
Some broadcast users activities on their social networks, like Spotify posting on Facebook when you play a song, or Pinterest when you pin content.
The viral coefficient K is the number of additional customers you can get for each customer you bring in. It depends on i, the number of invites sent per user, and conversion percentage (who will actually sign up after receiving an invite)
K = i * conversion percentage
Any viral coefficient above 1 will result in exponential growth. Any viral coefficient over 0.5 helps your efforts to grow considerably.
You can increase the number of invites per user i by including features that encourage sharing, such as posting to social networks. You can increase the conversion percentage by testing different signup flows. Try cutting out pages or signup fields.
Viral cycle time is how long it takes a user to go through your viral loop. Shortening your cycle time drastically increases the rate at which you go viral. You can do it by creating urgency or incentivizing customers to move through the loops.

Tactics

Engineering as Marketing

You can build tools like calculators, widgets, and educational microsites to get your company in front of potential customers.
HubSpot has Marketing Grade, a free marketing review tool. It’s free, gives you valuable information, and provides HubSpot with the information they use to qualify you as a potential prospect.
Moz has two free SEO tools, Followerwong and Open Site Explorer. They’ve driven tens of thousands of leads for Moz.
WP Engine has a speed testing tool that asks only for an email address in exchange for a detailed report on your site’s speed.

Business Development

With business development, you’re partnering to reach customers in a way that benefits both parties.
Google got most of its initial traction from a partnership with Netscape to be the default search engine and an agreement with Yahoo to power its online searches.
Business development can take the form of:
You should have already defined your traction goal and milestones, and you shouldn’t accept any partnership that doesn’t align with it. Many startups waste resources because it’s tempting to make deals with bigger companies.

Sales

Sales is the process of generating leads, qualifying them, and converting them into paying customers. It’s particularly useful for expensive and enterprise products.

Structuring the sales conversation

Situation questions. Ask one or two questions per conversation. The more you ask situation questions, the less likely they’re going to close.
Problem questions. Use sparingly.
Implication questions. Meant to make a prospect aware of the large implications that stem from the problem.
Need-payoff questions. Focus attention on your solution and get buyers to think about the benefits of solving the problem.

Cold calls

Be judicious about the people you contact. You want someone who is one-two levels up in the organization. They have enough perspective on the problem and some authority for decision making. Avoid starting at the top unless you’re calling a very small business.
Try to get answers about:

Tactics

It’s better to gain traction through a marketing channel first, then use sales as a conversion tool to close leads. The next stage is lead qualification: determine how ready a prospect is to buy. Once you’ve qualified the leads, you should lay out exactly what are you going to do for the customer. Set up a timetable for it and get them to commit with a yes or no whether they’re going to buy. Closing leads can be done by a sales team who does a webinar or product demo and has an ongoing email sequence that ends with a purchase request. In other cases, you may need a field sales team that actually visits prospective customers for some part of the process.

Dear Future Dental Students

EDIT (May 18, 2020): Added some more content.
Know who you are and understand your why. These will be the first and most important steps in becoming a dentist in the future. It will also be a constant reminder of your motivation for the difficult years to come.
Albeit the lifestyle of being the owner of the clinic, leader of the dental team, dictator of your own work hours is a great reason to be interested in the career, this reason alone will only get you so far. There are so many other careers that have a similar lifestyle that requires less schooling. If it’s because of the prestige or because you have been told to become a dentist from family and friends, you will fail yourself. The journey is long and difficult, their desires alone will not help you surpass the mental fatigue that you will have to endure.
That being said, if you’re looking for a career that allows you to own a business and dictate your own hours, having the business being dental- or health-related, your options are more numerous than dentistry. Look into becoming lab technician (dental or medical), dental hygienist, denturist, or dental therapist. Yes, the money you earn won’t be the same as a dentist if you plan to work for someone else but as far as money made as a business owner, the sky is the limit. Speaking from experience, an average salary for a technician may be between $40,000 to - 50,000 but the business can bring in over twice or thrice that in profit (yes, after expenses) with time. Just a word of caution though, owning a business carries it own risks. Just like a dentist who opens their own clinic or buys out a clinic, you also have the chance of misfortune too. These risks affect everyone.
Know your why. It will be part of your personal statement. It will help you tie up why you volunteered where you did, why you participated in certain events, why you believe dentistry is right for you, and why you may be the unique candidate that fits well with their dental school family.
Understand what it means to become a dentist. It's not simply drill, fill, and bill nor is it just cleaning teeth.
Personally, I would recommend shadowing experience once as a high school student and once more as an undergraduate student. Ask your general dentist if you could observe their dental team. As a high school student, I would recommend that you shadow the dentist for a full work week during the summer break. As an undergraduate student I would advise you to shadow the entire team for a full ~40 hour work week. It is your job when shadowing as a high school student to determine if this is the sort of job and work you are interested in. Ask a lot of questions pertaining to the duties and lifestyle of a dentist. As an undergraduate student, you should have a better understanding of what dentistry is really all about. While shadowing, do not sit in a corner and observe. You are losing precious hours of shadowing experience unable to see the intricacies of handling the scaler or drill, unable to see how the dental team cooperates in the operatory, unable to visualize the difficulties a dentist may face while operating in the oral cavity. Make mental notes of relevant questions and ask the doctor in between patients, not in front of them unless the doctor is already addressing it or welcomes it. Convey your interests and ask questions you may have. As a high school student or undergraduate student, you need to build this professional relationship. This could be the source of one of your future letters of recommendation. It would also be wise to document this experience and the number of hours as it will play a role in your future application to dental school.
Know where you want to be, what is needed of you, and how you are going to get there. You should understand the application process like the back of your hand. You should know what is required of you by the start of your first year of undergraduate studies.
Know what you are required to have completed by the end of your undergraduate studies. Understand the conditions that you must meet: full-time student status, GPA cut-offs, completion of specific courses, required DAT components (such as the manual dexterity test), DAT score cut-offs, completion of a 3 or 4 year undergraduate degree (or not), how many letter of recommendations and from whom, shadowing experiences (number of hours), citizenship, etc. The list varies across dental schools. It would be a good idea for you to figure out where you want to go and compile the list of requirements such that it will not come as a surprise when you do apply. Use Google and figure this stuff out or join your school's pre-dental student club if one exists. Listen to dentistry-oriented podcasts or watch Youtube videos posted by dental students or read their blogs. The information is out there and very plentiful.
If you are seeking current dental students or dentists to inquire about the DAT exam, about how to get into dental school, how to apply, or any of these sorts of questions you are wasting their time and embarrassing yourself. These questions can be answered with simple google searches, do it yourself. If you require clarification, contact the organizations directly and obtain the information from the horse's mouth. Ask the dental students about dental school and dentists about the work field/industry. Ask about things that are not so readily available online. Ask about the cool things you heard, watched, read about dentistry online that is recent. For some, it was the potential rise and takeover of corporate dentistry, for others it was the integration of CAD/CAM and its impact on clinical dentistry. Perhaps the impact of COVID-19 and its future implications will be what you want to know more about. Stay with the times in the field. This will additionally benefit you when it comes to the interview process of dental school applications.
Know when. Understand your means and live within them. Dentistry is not right for everyone at any time in their life. Understand your (and your family's) financial capabilities. Understand what GPA and DAT scores you realistically need to matriculate into dental school. Compare your capabilities with the current class profile (projected cost of attendance, dental school class profiles with GPA/DAT score ranges and averages are provided by most schools online). Dentistry may not be right for you this year, perhaps not the next. But eventually.
GPA As I mentioned earlier, check the schools’ class profile/admissions statistics. Most schools publish these numbers on their website. It will give you the best picture of what your chances are like. Understand that most schools provide an ‘average’ and not a ‘range’. This means they admit people with both lower and higher GPAs than the one they state. The closer you are to this average, the better (obviously). The higher your GPA is, the more ‘wiggle room’ you have for any deficiencies you have in the rest of your application.
Double major? Double minor? Honors degree? Personally, I would pick the program/degree that would allow me to do my absolute best. The program that allows me to take courses I am most interested in generally sets me up to do well. I am interested, engaged, and not burning out.
You do not necessarily have to take a science-related undergraduate program. Non-traditional applicants do exist. Just make sure you completed the required courses.
Letters of Recommendation Generally, you would want two letters from science professors (who have taught you lecture-based courses) and one from a dentist. Just a recommendation, not a requirement. Schools have been known to accept or require a letter from the leader of your religious community. This also depends on the school(s) you are interested in applying to.
How do I approach this? Ask your science professors ahead of time (beginning of the semester that the course is in). If they are comfortable, they will provide you with conditions in which they will be willing to write you the letter. Determine if your interaction (or lack of) in class is adequate for them to judge you as a dental school candidate. If it’s a very large class and it lacks any discussion, it might be a good idea to attend office hours regularly and ask good questions. It provides opportunity for them to get to know you as a person and as a student. If you have developed a good relationship with your professor already, just ask them if they are willing to write you a letter. Your professors are there to help you attain success academically. Most of them actually care and want you to succeed and are willing to write you a letter as long as you aren’t being a pain in the buttocks about it. Treat them with respect. Update them as the application cycle progresses. Celebrate with them (via e-mail if you must) and keep them in mind in the future years. They helped you, remember this well.
AADSAS has instructions on how your referees can submit their letters. You will not be able to view these letters. Be aware, some individuals will ask you to ghost-write for them. At which point, you can: refuse, provide bullet points that you wish to highlight, or just write it. But, yes, ethics. Your call. Many before you have had to make the decision, I am sure you will find one that best suits your morals or writing ability. At the end of the day, you won’t know for certain what is submitted (unless they are literally showing you and submitting it thereafter, I suppose).
Shadowing Experience I mentioned it earlier. Some schools require a certain number of shadowing hours. Make sure you are shadowing a dentist. Shadowing auxiliary dental positions will help you understand the field better but the hours schools generally ask for are from a licensed dentist.
How do I find a dentist to shadow? Just drop by and ask in person or send an e-mail. The dental team will get back to you (or not, this can also happen). You may be rejected by some, don’t be discouraged. Some dentists will reject you out of conflict of interest as they may be a part of the admissions committee for a school. This is also not uncommon if you are seeking shadowing opportunities near a college/university town/city.
But COVID-19, I can’t shadow. Well, there are opportunities. You just have to be patient and tactful. Here’s a post you can follow up on: https://www.reddit.com/DentalSchool/comments/gjmpnj/virtual_shadowing_mentorship_and_volunteering/
Volunteering
Plenty of opportunities in your local community. Just look for it. I won’t be diving too deep into this. Generally, you can use volunteering to show you are well-rounded individual. You can also use it to show commitment (many hours over long durations of time). Just keep in mind that the volunteer experience’s description isn’t the only thing that matters. It would also be beneficial to add that some applicants are accepted with few volunteering opportunities and some are accepted with extraordinary number of volunteer hours with quite numerous organizations. Some even started their own organization. Just keep track of your hours and keep your superior’s contact information handy for your application.
DAT Exam Preparation Know which DAT exam you are going to take and scour the internet for reviews on DAT preparation resources. The Canadian and American DAT are different and contain different components, do your research well.
Everyone has their own opinion of which resource is the best. The truth is, each of them offer the same thing: first- and second-year undergraduate level knowledge of biology and chemistry.
Let’s face it. This knowledge hardly changes. What you need to determine is how they differ and which difference will propagate your success. For some, this means sitting in a classroom with an instructor. For others, it is at their own convenience on a phone app or whenever they have time to access the materials on a laptop. Perhaps you require more help in a specific area such as the perceptual ability test or reading comprehension. Just take any free material these different resource companies offer and determine if their premium material will be worthwhile or not based on how much the free stuff helped. Ultimately, the actual DAT exam is straight-forward and the depth of the scientific knowledge necessary is still basic. You’ll see what I mean when you dive into the material or take your first mock-DAT.
I have access to preparation material from 2010, do I need more recent material? Science at the level tested on the DAT hasn’t changed much. Look into whether the exam itself has changed between those years. Ultimately, you’re investing into your future. Allocate the necessary financial resources as you see fit. If you’re smart enough to become a dentist, you’ll be smart enough to decide whether the cost outweighs the risk.
Price is just too high? Look online for coupons and do your research on when they hold their sales. Your local pre-dental club may also have their own promotional code for a huge range of DAT preparation resources. These companies will also provide vloggers, bloggers, and podcast hosts promotional codes for sponsored content. Look out for them. They are everywhere, you just need to spend a little bit more time searching.
Score to aim for? Check the class profiles. Generally, you’ll see between an average DAT admission scores between 20-22 depending on the subject. The higher you can score, the better. I personally got 21 in every category except general chemistry, where I got a 19 (Canadian DAT, no manual dexterity test).
What did I personally use? Do I recommend it? I used Bootcamp but I would not recommend it over other resources. But if this is your choice, I advise you to cut your DAT Bootcamp cost by using their free resource before you buy their subscription. Here’s a link if you’re lazy: https://www.notion.so/DAT-Bootcamp-Bio-Academy-c9625820803548d698a9b47c5dd35fa4. I also caution you that Mike’s General Chemistry videos were very basic and not helpful (in my opinion). I regret not checking out Chad’s videos. The reason I decided to use Bootcamp was because of their PAT generators. Everything else they provided (other than the mock exams and biology notes) were not helpful (excluding non-Canadian DAT subjects because I did not need to know it). Nevertheless, I got a good enough score to get in with less than a month of studying.
How I studied? I took it a day at a time and tried my best to complete one or two chapters (or sub-chapter in the case of physiology topics) a day. If I skipped a day, I made sure I made up for it in the following day. With less than a month to study, I used that ‘one a day’ minimum rule to make sure I went through all of the material at least once before my exam.
Final advice? Do not do a full mock-DAT the morning of your actual DAT exam. You’re probably nervous/anxious af but trust me, it was the worst thing I ever did to myself. I was completely burnt out after the first section of my actual Canadian DAT exam. Eat breakfast and keep food and water with you for your breaks. Eat food that you’re used to such that it doesn’t make your stomach churn in the middle of the exam. If you’re falling asleep between sections, do some jumping jacks or push-ups. Wear layers so you can achieve the right body temperature and comfort during your exam. The building may or may not have air conditioning or adequate heating. You ‘could’ appeal these conditions but you’re risking your future over something you could have controlled yourself.
General Dental School Applications Do your research. Know where you can financially afford to go and compile the list of requirements as I previously spoke about. Each school has their own unique set of requirements. Make sure you meet these requirements. Moreover, make sure that the school is accredited and have had no recent issues with maintaining its accreditation. Statistically, the more schools you apply to, the more chances you have of being accepted, but the more expensive it will become. Some admissions committees may ask you how many other schools you applied to, which ones, and why. This is not atypical. Be aware of this.
How many should I apply to? It depends on you and your situation. Only you can really give the best answer. Personally, I worked before going back to undergrad and had enough money to go wide in terms of number of schools I applied to. I filtered every school based on what I believed was the weakest part of my application, which was my GPA. I decided I would take the statistical approach – the more shots I take the more chances I would have. I knew I could afford this because I saved for it. I strategized. I knew mentally, I kept comparing myself to my friends from my first university who had finished their degrees and got their desired jobs. For me, the mental exhaustion from the need to re-apply year after year outweighed the cost of applying to more numerous schools.
What I should look into other than class profile/admissions statistics? Since all accredited programs will provide you with adequate education for licensing exams, look into things such as cost of living and how this affects other parts of your life (family, friends, significant other(s), source of income, etc).
Know that you will be required to order and send your official transcripts directly from your undergrad institution(s) and DAT score from the Canadian Dental Association (in my case). You will be asked to provide contact information of people who can attest to your community involvement experiences and any other extracurricular you claimed to have been involved in on your application. Be honest about it or the admissions committee will weed you out during the interview process for lying or over-exaggerating your claims. Know that your DAT scores must be submitted before your application will be looked at. There will be administrative fees for submitting your application(s) from both the third-party website (such as ADEA AADSAS) and the institution (dental school) themselves – yes, two fees.
Secondary/Supplementary School Applications follow the submission of your general application. This second application will come with the fee I described in the earlier section as well as contain a few essay questions with characteword limits. It is advised that you write these on an external document and have them proof-read by someone you trust before you submit them. It will improve your writing drastically. It would also be extremely helpful if they help you from the perspective of looking for any flaw to disqualify you as a potential candidate because I assure you that the competition is tough and that the admissions committee is looking for easy ways to eliminate as many candidates as possible to focus on the strongest of candidates.
Remember! Your application is incomplete and will not be looked at by the admission committee if ‘any’ component is missing. This will be especially important to note for anyone taking the Canadian DAT on that one day in November or February since interviews begin in September. Take into consideration of the time it will take for the Canadian Dental Association to mark the tests and submit the results via physical mail. For November exams, it could be around Christmas when it is finally marked and closer to February by the time dental schools obtain them. Interviews last up until the end of February but the later you interview, the fewer seats there are to interview for. This is especially disadvantageous for those who feel less competitive. You may be on the lower end of competitiveness (in how admissions committee scores you) and potentially get a chance to impress at the interview in the early applicant pool and may have even been offered a seat. If you were to wait until the late applicant pool arrives, you may fall even lower in the rankings and not even be invited for an interview let alone offered a seat for the upcoming year. Apply as early as possible! But do not be discouraged if you are late, it is still possible to be waitlisted or offered a seat.
Some secondary applications will ask you for a professional headshot. I was advised by a friend to use a limestone wall as a background as a professional photographer had advised him the year before I applied. Hopefully it works for you. At least wear something with a collar and show that you can be professional and dress accordingly.
Interviews At some point you will have to physically meet people from the admission committee in person and be interviewed. The structure will be important to understand as it will help you determine what information you need to adequately communicate within the short time period you have been provided. Know your application inside out, I mean it is your life and the cumulation of what you have done and what you believe up to this point in your life, should be easy to talk about.
Before you are even invited to an interview, it would be a fantastic idea to be prepared ahead of time. Your school will undoubtedly have a “student success center” (focused on helping graduates find success in obtaining a career), which will have interview practice sessions (and potentially sessions to help you improve your application). Use all of the resources you have available to you!
If you want to know what kind of questions you will get, check the Student Doctor Network (SDN) forum. They compile past dental applicant reviews of each school and the questions they were asked. No, you are not asked to sign a non-disclosure form. The information there is fair game and legal. Being able to answer the ‘types’ of questions from the institution that invited you for an interview will be a huge advantage in your preparation.
Research the school, their missions, values, outreach endeavors, renowned scientific research, specialties offered, etc. If the school values service or research, learn about them. If any of them interests you, make a mental note of it. It may come up as a question somehow on interview day. You know everyone else is bringing their “A-game”, why not bring yours, right? Personally, I know on my interview day, everyone spoke about how awesome their outreach efforts were, but no one spoke about the fantastic research that the school was known for. I think I scored some brownie points there. Everything helps. It is a competition at the end of the day.
Closed filed interviews? These people do not know anything about you. You will have to convey the best things about you during the interview and pique their interest for the most optimal results. Open file interview? They know everything written on your application. Try to give them something that is not already on there. In both cases, if there are things you could not include in your general or supplementary application, it would be wise to somehow incorporate them into your answers in this stage of the application process. Be creative but do not throw these experiences in as a shameless plug. It should come in organically. Some interviewers are very laid back and will simply have a conversation with you. Others will stick to a list of specific questions provided by the admissions committee. It’s a lottery as to which interviewer you will get. Make the most of it regardless of which end of the stick you receive.
Question period. You will have time to ask any question of your choice at the end of your interview. It might be wise to pay attention to your interviewer’s introduction and cater the question such that it is relevant to them, their field, or profession. Not everyone on the admissions committee owns a private practice, some are your future instructors, some are retired dentists who have an interest in what the future of dentistry will look like. If you are stuck on basic questions in your interview preparations, start listening to some dentistry podcasts where they often explore the ‘latest trends’ or ‘controversy’ in the field of dentistry.
Final advice for your interview? 1) “Suit up!” -Barney Stinson (and like anyone else in the world if they knew you were planning to go with a t-shirt and jeans) 2) Your interview begins the moment you arrive in the state/province/country. You NEVER know who you will run into and who they know or are affiliated with. Be professional. Even to your ubelyft/taxi driver. It’s a small world and any criticism that gets to the admissions committee will just be another factor used against you. 3) DO NOT FORGET YOUR INTERVIEWER’S NAME(S). If it is an atypical name or too long to remember, ask them to spell it for you. Whatever method works best for you. Bring a pen with you if you must. You’ll be provided an information package anyway and will have plenty of places to jot down a name or two. 4) Make sure your meals leading up to the interview is typical and will not upset your stomach. Avoid overeating. Some interviews will provide an information session followed by lunch before your actual interview. Be a normal person and have a small bite to eat. Pack a brush and floss (if you can) to freshen up after the meal before your interview. Avoid carbonated drinks or coffee if you can – burping and being jittery during your interview may be a big disadvantage despite how much these beverages helped you in getting to this point in your life. 5) Schedule your flight in/out of the state/province/country several hours or a day after your interview’s scheduled end to leave room for any socials/networking opportunities that you are presented with. Thank your admissions committee for their time and effort. If anyone stood out, mention them explicitly in the e-mail by name (or not at all). 6) If you suck at talking to new people, practice your interview questions aloud. It will train you to speak reflexively on specific topics. It definitely helped a lot of my answers roll off my tongue in a coherent manner.
No Offer of Admission It sucks. Take some time for yourself and get back on the grind soon. There are many things you can do to improve your chances for the next cycle: employment (preferably in a dental-related field), volunteer, research, post-baccalaureate programs, improve general application question responses, supplementary application responses, or on interview skills. If the admissions committee is able to provide you with feedback on your application, request it and learn from it. If not, ask a friend who got in. Ask the dentist you shadowed, family, or significant other. It will be beneficial to have different perspective of your application as it can help you figure out what your deficiencies were. Generally, if someone is invited to the interview stage, I personally say it is not a matter of ‘if’ they will get in but ‘when’. Admissions committees have generally been confident about candidates who make it to the interview stage being good enough on paper to become a dental student. So if this is you, consider improving interview skills.You will hear tales of people making it on their 6th application cycle. Yes, there are people who have applied for 5+ years straight. Do not be discouraged.
Offer of Admission Congratulations! Really. You did it. Now what? Go through the matriculation checklist. Attend the information webinars, etc. All of the things you probably did as a freshman for undergrad.
Consider your options. Know what the financial costs are and what other variables are affected if you choose to attend that specific school. All accredited dental schools will prepare you for the licensing exam in their respective country. Must you go there when there is a cheaper option? Do you plan to specialize? Will a pass/fail grading system affect your chances of specializing? Are the facilities adequate or do you have to struggle use the facilities over the four years? Are you ok with using these facilities for four years for the price point? Do you have a significant other? Have you spoken about long distance relationships or your future together and how dental school will affect these plans? Figure this stuff out.
Don’t be hasty with your decision but don’t be a dick and wait until the absolute final day to accept your offer. Many people are in the same boat as you and they are trying to wait for their dream school or just ANY school. The longer you take, the longer they and those after them remain on the wait list. Can you imagine the mental burden they’re experiencing? Of course, you probably had the same feeling up until you got your offer. So, if you know with certainty you want to attend a specific school and have considered everything else, just accept the offer damn it.
Thank those who have helped you get to this point. Yes, family and friends, your significant other, your kids, those who wrote your letter of recommendations, the dentist who you shadowed, the whole shabang.
This is it. This is basically all I intended to cover. Just remember to be the best dentist that you can be and not compare yourself to others too much. A little can encourage competitiveness but too much can be detrimental to your health and performance. Make friends, have a great time in dental school and make memories.
Imposter Syndrome (Feel like a fraud?) the persistent inability to believe that one’s success is deserved or has been legitimately achieved as a result of one’s own efforts or skills.
No one speaks about this enough. It affects everyone but is often more severe in URMs. You are of the 0.01% in the world that made it into dental school and will soon join the field of dentistry as a dentist. If you got to this point, you deserved it. The admissions committees are seasoned veterans who have dedicated decades of their careers to this careful selection process. It is extremely unlikely for anyone to have made it to this point by chance. Offers of acceptance made in error (due to technical problems or what not) are typically resolved very shortly after. You should not worry about that at this point.
Find people who you can rely on for mental and emotional support. You will want them in the future as they can remind you that you are capable and can succeed. Dentistry is a demanding field, and everyone will feel like an imposter at some point in their student life, let alone in the actual workplace. It is likely that your classmates also feel imposter syndrome but do not speak about it. This does not mean you are the only person who believes they do not belong here and that the admissions committee will soon figure you out. It is important to be able to speak to your classmates and your loved ones about these insecurities. If you are still unconvinced, you could probably just directly speak to the admissions committee. I am sure they will set you right if you’ve become that desperate for proof. You wouldn’t be the first and you won’t be the last to do it.
Many geniuses have even experienced imposter syndrome. It’s not exclusive to only you. Though many people feel this, they do not necessarily know the name for it. But now that you do, you can do extra research on the topic to help you feel more at ease.
