4 Simple Ideas To Help With Dentist Marketing On TikTok
If you’re not creating video in your social media marketing efforts, you’re missing out. Video dental marketing is taking over the search algorithms and social media feeds. It’s what your patients want to see from your practice.
Learning how to use TikTok to help create super-engaging social media content is a must. The dental practices that are blowing up on TikTok report more new patients, improved patient-practice trust, higher rankings on search engines, and a better office culture.
Just like forward thinking dental practices using TikTok, it should be part of your dental marketing content creation plan.
What Is TikTok Marketing For Dentists?
TikTok is a video sharing application. It’s mobile, vertical, short-form video strategy allows a user to create video content on the fly.
If you’re familiar with Instagram Reels or Youtube Shorts you’ll understand TikTok, because Instagram Reels and Youtube Shorts were created to compete with a massive growth of TikTok. All three applications are very similar to each other.
TikTok has an advantage over Instagram Reels, in that it does one thing and it does it very well. TikTok creates video content and that’s it. No photos, no carousels, nothing but video. And why would this be an advantage? Because video is what consumers want over other forms of content.
If you’re the dentist or the person in charge of creating digital content you should be on all three platforms and publish content to all three. Many dental practices publish the same content to all three, and that’s not a bad idea.
Why Should A Dentist Advertise Using TikTok?
Why is short form video on TikTok so popular for dental marketing?
