How To Create A Well-Rounded Dental Internet Marketing Strategy
No longer can dental practices ignore the value of dental social media marketing in helping to find new patients in your community. It’s not that social media has taken over and outpaced all other digital marketing strategies, it’s that they’re all integrated now.
It’s nearly impossible to optimize your website with a dental SEO campaign without effective social media content. And, vice versa.
One of the great things about digital marketing for dentists is that it doesn’t just focus on one part of dental marketing. It provides a brief overview of all the main aspects of creating a vibrant, attractive online presence for your practice.
From having accounts on the right social media platforms to reviews, team culture, and more, it will get you thinking about the essential dental marketing elements of your practice — things that may mean the difference between a potential patient calling or not.
Why Dental Internet Marketing Involves Your Team
Taking the Dental Social Media Self-Assessment will get you in the right mindset to create a dental marketing strategy that your entire team can participate in. Getting consistent engagement is crucial to helping new patients find you on social media, but it can be difficult for practices just starting out on Facebook or Instagram. Don’t ignore your greatest resource in this situation — your team members!
Your team members are likely connected on social media to thousands of ideal potential patients in your area, and if you’re not leveraging those connections, you may be missing out on reaching hundreds of people that would have a high chance of scheduling an appointment with you.
We say “leverage your team members’ connections,” but don’t read that the wrong way. We’re not saying to encourage your team members to sell dentistry to their friends online. The smarter approach is to encourage your team members to simply interact with your practice’s posts — sparking some engagement and helping more people see them.
Why Patients Are Your Greatest Dental Internet Marketing Asset
The best way to introduce your practice to the people most likely to become new patients is through your existing patients online!
A large following doesn’t guarantee that your practice’s posts will make it to many of your patients, even less so to your ideal potential patients. And if you’re starting your dental practice’s digital dental marketing strategy with less than 100 social media followers, as we suspect many taking the Dental Social Media Self-Assessment are, how are you supposed to build your online presence in the first place? An important part of the solution is patient posting.
What do we mean by that? Well, because posts from personal accounts aren’t subject to the same organic reach limitations that business posts are, your patients’ personal posts have a much higher chance of being seen by their family and friends — people who remember and trust their recommendations.
