3 Essential Elements for a Giveaway That Grows Your Practice

First, make it easy—for yourself and your fans. Choose a small prize so you can do giveaways often without stressing your budget too much. It could even be a “dental supply kit” like a year’s worth of dental floss. For patients and fans, participating in your giveaway isn’t so much about the value of the prize. It’s about the chance to connect with you and have some fun (especially for young patients)!

Even a $10 gift card is enough to get people participating. And make it easy for patients and fans to enter. Asking people to like your page, like the post, and leave a comment to enter is easy enough, and it helps build your social media presence.

Second, Make it shareable. As part of your giveaway entry steps, you can ask people to leave a comment and “at mention” a friend. For example, “tag an awesome mom you know who would like to enter!”

It’s a simple way to expand your giveaway’s reach to your patients’ family and friends—the people most likely to become your next patients. It’s especially effective on Facebook!
