3 Keys Ways Dental Social Media Marketing Can Build Relationships & Drive New Inquiries
Build Relationships: Social media marketing offers an excellent opportunity to engage current patients (and potential patients) in a two-way conversation.
With interesting, relevant content posted regularly, patients can interact with your dental office in a more personal way on a regular basis that builds loyalty to your practice.
For best results, content should be a mix of dental-related content, patient case studies, community news, staff bios and notable events that involve your clinic.
Generate Referrals: Did you know the average Facebook user has 150 friends? When somebody interacts with your page, their friends see this activity show up in their news feed. This generates free exposure for your practice.
Building a social media presence also helps keep your dental clinic “top of mind” for patients, so when a friend online is looking for a dentist recommendation, your existing patients can quickly suggest your practice with a link to your Facebook page.
Attract New Patients: Paid social media ad campaigns can help you increase the audience of your social media platforms, creating a pool of potential new patients. It’s possible to target ads to the specific desired patient demographic to attract only qualified prospects and keep your advertising costs down.
Social Media Is Primarily About Engaging & Connecting
As we mentioned earlier, using dental social media marketing for your practice allows you to better connect with your existing patients and attract new patients but also gives you the ability to generate hot leads in real-time.
People are extremely vocal about their ailments on social media, and you can use online search tools to track down these conversations and be the first to respond and offer solutions.
For instance, did you know your clinic can be alerted every time someone says “tooth ache” within a certain radius of your clinic? You can use that to your advantage and start building rapport with the people who need your help immediately. How’s that for building instant trust and credibility when you are the first person to help them out with your advice.
In dental practice marketing strategies, one of the most effective approach is to provide helpful information – be seen as an expert who helps people with dental advice, updates, industry news, helpful articles and links to useful dental resources and informative articles and videos.
