A Simple Secret of Social Media Success: Have Fun

By January 27, 2017April 29th, 2022No Comments

Think of the people in your life you like to be around most often. Chances are they’re the ones you can always count on to make you laugh! In the same way, you can build relationships through your social media efforts just by having fun and giving people a reason to smile.

What are the main reasons people go on social media? To keep in touch, learn, and have fun! Laughter is a language we all understand. A healthy dose of humor can humanize your social media presence, build team unity and strengthen patient relationships.


“If you’re having fun creating and sharing content, you can bet your fans are also having fun following and interacting with you on social media! The growth difference between practices enthusiastically participating in social media together and those who aren’t is like night and day.

Involve your whole team, especially those who think they’re ‘too old for this.’ Get creative. Don’t be afraid to show your lighthearted side.”
