Social Media Management & Marketing
Dentists have, in the main, been slow to adopt and make best use of social media marketing. That’s genuinely a shame, as social media represents both a powerful tool and a wonderful opportunity to engage with your current patients, potential patients, and your community in dynamic ways. Social media is a proven cost- and time-efficient component of your marketing plan that allows you to build brand identity and brand awareness, improve communication with your target audience, and connect with both current and potential patients. Social media marketing and social media management are vital functions for your practice as you seek to thrive and grow.
What is Social Media Marketing?
Social media functions as a global meeting place, in which users from all around the world form groups and communities as they see fit. It’s rapidly evolving even now, and good social media management anticipates changes and developments before they affect your industry. As such, social media marketing embraces a variety of marketing approaches, strategies, and techniques and adapts them to the digital realm. Blog posts, social media posts, targeted ads, visual content, word of mouth, they all come together in the world that is social media marketing.
So what marks for successful social media marketing? Successful social media marketing begins with understanding the practice’s goals and ambitions, designing the right marketing approach to take them down that path, and then executing it beautifully and skillfully. Effective social media marketing will fulfill many needs, including:
- Creating a professional, cohesive image of your office, your brand, and the experience you offer. This is where your social media marketing plan has to both understand and embody the spirit of your practice and business, and then relay that to your potential patients. It’s an enduring and sustainable investment which will pay for itself year after year.
- Effective and engaging client communication is one of the chief goals of social media marketing for businesses of all sizes. Dentistry is both a science and an art, and your communications with your patients should foster feelings of trust and comfort. Social media marketing allows us to create your online identity in a way that is accessible to your client and then lets you connect with them like never before.
- Dynamic visual marketing is a critical part of both brand development and of a dynamic social media marketing effort. Professionally created visuals, both still and video, have a force multiplier effect on social media. The right photographs, the right videos, released the right way can bring new eyes to your marketing and new patients to your door.
- Informative and accessible content can help answer many patient questions before they contact your office directly. Well written blogs and social media posts can inform and educate both current and potential patients as to the services you offer, the nature of common dental procedures, and other aspects of oral health. Well-crafted content will keep your audience engaged with your social media while helping boost your search engine rankings.
