Social media is here to stay, while many dental offices are not doing very much with their social pages, others are thriving and bringing in a lot of traffic through their doors. Here are some interesting ideas of what some successful dental offices are doing with their social media.
Reduce your dental assistance’s call out time
Use a Facebook tab or app for appointment reminders. What is a Facebook tab? They are HTML code than run inside your Facebook fan page not unlike a website. Even though it only works on desktops at the moment, it is something that can also be added to your website and is a great initiative to grow your email list straight from Facebook.
Growing your email list
Email marketing still alive and well, people check their email every day and there are many ways you could use social media to grow that list. Sign up forms and contests giveaways are a great way to grow it.
Integration with your digital sign
When people see a live Twitter feed, they just want to see their “tweet” on the screen. Having a digital sign with your social feed encourages interaction with your followers and is a great way to grow your social profile. Not to mention because it is a live feed your content is always fresh (as long as you update your social profiles often). Integrating social media also gives your office more control of what you see on the sign without having to have an expert come in to add more content for you.
Social Media ad buy:
You already tried the newspaper, the local one too, the coupon book and so has every other dental office in town. What not all of them are trying, is social media ads. With the proper knowledge, these ads can be a gold mine. Talk to your social media consultant about advertising on Facebook, Twitter and even Linked In. Since this ad space is still “virgin” for most dental offices, you have a chance of getting some new referrals from your current clients.
Increase Brand awareness:
Is no secret that social media helps with your SEO (search engine optimization). The main reason for that is because the content is fresh and always updated. By having people constantly liking and commenting your post, it increases your social reach and that’s how your page can then start to grow organically. Is like digital word of mouth. Encouraging customers to “Check In” at your location is a great example of using social reach as the customers broadcasts your location to all their friends thus increasing your social reach and brand awareness.
