It’s no longer a “new world,” it’s the world we live in; and there’s no excuse to not be taking full advantage of social media.
That means a real strategy with professionals who know how to use these tools to their full potential.
Social media marketing can be tricky, you can’t just mindlessly post and wait for results. It needs to be part of a larger machine all working together. A successful social media strategy is one that sparks interest and engagement and is done with a purpose.
Deciding which social media site is best for you takes thought and a bit of trial and error. You may not need to be on every platform, depending on your market and location; most organizations start with Facebook. Think of Facebook as entry level to social media marketing. It’s easy to use, and millions of people are browsing every day. Once you master Facebook, you should continue to grow and experiment with other options.
Marketing online is measurable, you can choose what to spend, see how you are spending it, and measure results in real time. Think about this, how much would you spend on newspaper or billboard ads? There’s no way to track how many people have seen your advertisement. Depending on the platform, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn etc., usually tells you how many people your advertisement was in front of, how many impressions it made and how many people clicked on it.
The main goal of social media marketing is engagement and interaction. People like to see visually pleasing content so get your creative juices flowing with psychographics and videos. From our own experience, our clients look to our own social media pages when considering to hire us. For you, it can be the difference between attracting new patients and pushing them away.
