Many dentists and dental offices question how best to engage on social media and wonder if social media is even worth the immense amount of time and energy it can take. Even if you’re already skilled with traditional forms of client relations and advertising, social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and even Pinterest are becoming essential parts of patients’ lives. This integration of social media into patients’ lives makes it vitally important for dentists across the country to adjust how they interact and reach out to their patients as traditional advertising avenues become more obsolete.
Don’t Believe Us? Take a look at these numbers:
- Facebook alone has over 1.86 billion monthly active users – The world’s population is estimated to only be 7.125 billion.
- 78% of all adults in the US currently use social media – This includes those over 70 years old.
- 74% of marketers see an increase in traffic when they start engaging on social media.
- 78% of Americans say that social media impacts their buying decisions – Again this includes those individuals over 70 years old.
