Low engagement per post:
Sure, talking about dental procedures is not the most engaging topic there is if you’re not a dentist, but posting some useful facts can help boost the amount of likes you get. Post things people find useful and apply to the masses and not just the few.
Not enough PTAT- People Talking About This
PTAT is a metric that many social marketers use to measure social reach. This metric is affected when a content you have receives a lot of engagement. This causes the content to be seen by friends of friends, giving you a reach beyond your Facebook likes. Improving your engagement per post can help increase this number dramatically!
Not enough advertising investment.
Only 49% of Dentists are actually using Facebook and, from what I’ve seen, less than half that amount are using Facebook to advertise. Why wouldn’t you take advantage of such a non-competitive advertising space for your industry?
Not posting enough.
A few of the pages I checked for the research on writing this post, forgot that they had a page. The last post recorded for one of them was June 2013. If that is you, I suggest you erase the profile or hand it off to someone that could give your page some serious CPR and a boost in performance. Trying to get your page to show on people’s newsfeed will be a challenge.
No clear definition on where to start.
Social Media is not easy. Understanding how to use it is only half the battle. You will need to take into account, your target market, what is the preferred platform of your target demographic and what kind of content they are more likely to engage with. Some practices don’t have any idea what content they need to post to keep their audience engaged and get some ROI out of Facebook. A social media consultant can help you design a strategy that works for your business.
