Learn how you can use marketing on social media for patient conversion
As you think about marketing your practice, you might think that having an SEO-friendly website and running some PPC ads on Google is enough. However, the internet is a big place, and you want to be visible to prospective patients in as many places as possible. As a result, you want to take advantage of using social media for patient conversion.
If you haven’t used social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram to grow your practice, you might not understand how valuable they can be. Read on to discover how social media can improve your online visibility and help convert people browsing the web into loyal patients.
Why is marketing on social media for patient conversion important?
It can be helpful to think of digital marketing as an interconnected web. Not only does it happen on the world wide web, but all the different pieces also work together and influence each other. For example, you might know that having good SEO on your website can reduce the cost you pay when someone clicks on one of your PPC ads.
Similarly, social media for patient conversion is connected to other digital marketing pieces. Here are some examples to prove it.
- Our social media marketing team can post links to content on your website like blog posts. Doing so helps drive traffic to your site to help with patient conversion.
- Research shows that someone needs to see or hear a marketing message about seven times before they become a customer (or a patient). Social media marketing provides more opportunities to get in front of your audience.
