There are countless reasons why focusing on dental social media engagement should be a part of your overall marketing strategy. Social media for dentists can do many things to help your practice. The top three are:
- Helps you attract more potential patients in your area.
- Builds strong relationships and loyalty among current patients.
- Solidifies the reputation you have in your community.
Although one of the main goals of dental social media marketing is to attract new patients, we all know it costs your practice more to get a new dental patient than to retain your current patients. That’s why we like to focus on marketing strategies that show your current patients that you care about them. Dental practices that show their patients that they care have more loyal patients and a higher retention rate. The purpose of dental social media is to show patients that you care about people, not just teeth.
There are many dental social media ideas out there. The truth is, many of them won’t attract attention and engagement. You don’t want to waste your time on social media content that doesn’t work. You want the kind of dental social media engagement that helps you meet your bottom line.
“Content builds relationships. Relationships are built on trust. Trust drives revenue.” -Andrew David, best-selling author, and keynote speaker.
So, you know that you need content that attracts new patients and fosters relationships with current patients. But, what does that content look like? How does your dental team find time to post content like that? That’s where the dental marketing experts step in.
