There are many marketing tactics that can draw clients to a dental practice. However, some of them are more effective than others. Using social media marketing tactics can be a great way to cater to the target audience and build a relationship with clients.
1. Social Media Schedule
Each social media platform caters to a specific demographic. Choose one or two that best fit the target audience and focus on creating posts that fit the style of those platforms.
Once a social media platform has been chosen, it is a good idea to create a posting schedule. It is important to remain visible to social media followers without saturating their feeds. If followers become annoyed, they may choose to unfollow the practice’s account. A schedule can help dentists stay organized and post on social media accounts in a timely manner.
2. Vlogs and Podcasts
It takes time to read through social media posts and peruse the web for vital information. Patients who are interested in learning about oral hygiene, common dental procedures or a company’s services may prefer to listen to the information instead of reading it. Podcasts and video logs, commonly known as vlogs, allow dentists to talk about important issues while presenting themselves as trustworthy and knowledgeable sources. Patients can listen to the presentation while commuting, doing chores or occupied with other mindless tasks.
3. Informative Blogs
A versatile marketing method is blog posting. These posts can be put onto the practice’s website or featured as guest posts on relevant third-party websites. The topics can be about anything from cutting-edge technological advancements in the field to cavity prevention techniques. The tone of the blogs can be customized to fit the dental practice brand, whether it is professional and polished or more casual.
4. Livestream Events
Some dental practices already host on-site events that promote the business and invites clients to come to have fun, mingle and ask questions. Livestream events have grown in popularity over the past few years and can be a successful way to interact with clients and potential patients in a meaningful way. These events can be done using video conferencing software or through certain social media platforms.
Building a successful dental practice takes time, but effective marketing tactics can be a fantastic way to boost the client base and the bottom line. By engaging with clients and offering them valuable information about the industry and maintaining their oral health, everyone can benefit.
