Social Media Optimization
Communication has undergone a paradigm shift in recent times. Now, opinions are aired, views are shared, and news is spread via tweets, status updates, and blog posts. You are more likely to meet your patients, prospective employees, and vendors onsocial networking sites than catch them in any place in the real world. Because of that, social media optimization is the most surefire way to spread the word about your practice. But, easier said than done!
The challenges of social media optimization lie in figuring out not only the right answers, but also the most feasible, to these questions: Where, How, and How Much. We, the social media optimization experts at the HealthCare Marketing Group, are sensitive to the specific needs of each practice and will help you find the answers.
We believe that the basis of any successful social media optimization campaign lies in thorough market and target audience research. The demographics of your patients, colleagues, and prospective employees and their social networking habits will determine where you will head to meet them—Facebook, Twitter, or a blog forum that they regularly turn to. The choice of the site will determine how you will interact—updates and tweets to announce you are out of town or blogs to spread the word about a revolutionary new treatment procedure or share a success story.
Social media optimization doesn’t end here. You will still have to determine how much of social media optimization is actually optimal. This is the mindboggling task of figuring out if posting 2 or 4 blogs a week is enough to keep you in the news or if daily Twitter updates will be perceived as being too voluble.
Striking this fine balance between the where, how, and the how much in social media optimization requires ample amount of marketing know-how, a finger on the pulse of the medical profession, and intuitive knowledge about how lasting relationships are built on social media.
