Social media icons can be found everywhere these days. They are used by businesses of all kinds, and act as visual imagery to relay a message. They are used not only to increase brand exposure, but also to encourage customer interactions.
Social media has grown immensely in the past several years, and continues to grow at a pace faster than ever before. It is now an essential part of custom dental marketing. Much of this growth is due to changes in technology, especially on mobile devices. As technology changes, so must your marketing. Techniques that were successful, just a couple of short years ago are now ineffective and perhaps even nonexistent. To even be considered, you MUST have social presence.
Let me show you who has the opportunity to see your online presence – According to Pewinternet , 82% of adults ages 30-49, 65% of adults ages 50-64 and 49% of adults ages 65+ use social network sites! Were you aware of this? These numbers are astronomical!
Here is what we challenge you to do – put yourself out there and get yourself seen! Simply adding social media icons to your website, and even your office e-mails, sends a HUGE message. This will tell your patients that you are right here with them in current times. It tells them that you want to stay connected, and that you are interested in anything that they have to say!
