Another Dental Social Media ROI Plus
Here at My Social Practice we’ve been talking about the The Four ROI Components of dental social media marketing for a long time. They include:
- Greater Retention
- Increased Case Acceptance
- New Patients
- Added Practice Equity
When it comes to added practice equity, Aaron Schulman writes, “Having an active social media existence will make your dental office inviting to potential buyers and will show that your marketing is current and front-of-mind to potential and current patients.” We couldn’t agree more.
Start Now To Reap The Rewards
If you’re still sitting on the fence wondering if relationship marketing through social media is a fad, it’s time to get on board. Start small. Baby steps are fine. Just make the commitment to be consistent and genuine.
One day, when you’re ready to transition your practice, you’ll be glad you started now. Regardless of where you are in the life cycle of your practice it’s never too soon to build greater practice value and equity. A strong social media presence is a surefire way to begin doing that.
