We live in a world where social media is prevalent. If your business is not on social media then you are missing out on a huge opportunity to promote your business and build your brand. However, many businesses think they have to be on every social media platform. That is not the case! To build your brand, pick only the platforms that make sense for your dental practice. Here are some ways you can build your brand and dental practice on social media.
Create, provide, and share valuable content.
Only share content that will generate interest and provide information to your audience. Don’t share content, just to share content. Use these platforms as the voice of your company – aka your brand. Remember, what you say or share on social media should keep in correlation to your dental office’s values. Hense, share industry news from respected industry leaders. Provide your followers with information on specific services you offer. The content you share needs to be aligned with your brand.
Promote your brand.
Campaigns are the best way to promote your brand. There are several ways you can promote your brand on social media. One of the easiest ways to generate interest is to hold contests. We tell all of our clients to hold contests on social media. You can do it every quarter or every month – depending on your budget. In addition, another way is to utilize social media advertising. If you are offering a discount on a service or just want to promote your dental practice, social media ads are a great way to maximize your social media reach. They are very simple to set up and you can target a very specific audience.
Finally, the best way to build your brand is to stay consistent. There is nothing worse than confusing your followers. Before starting, come up with a plan and a voice for your company. Staying consistent helps build your brand and creates trust with your followers. Therefore, if you want people to associate your business with how much you give to the community, share pictures and images of your philanthropic work. If you tell a joke on Friday, then tell a joke every Friday and use a recognizable hashtag. Consistency builds your brand!
In conclusion, social media is an amazing way to build your brand and to build your patient base. Using these platforms can not only generate followers, but it can shed light on what kind of a company you are and the values you set for your practice. Just remember to share content that people want to see or know and do it consistently. Promote yourself as the dental expert in your area. Following these steps can help get more patients in your office!
