Medical Marketing Tips for increasing your Likes on Facebook
Medical Marketing Tips for increasing your Likes on Facebook:
1) Make a goal to ask 3 patients a day if they’d be willing to Like your page. If they already Like your page, invite them to check-in for a prize. Prizes may include a $5 gift card, a water bottle, lip balm, etc.
2) Hold a friendly competition between staff members. Have each team member share your practice’s page on their own personal Facebook pages. See who can get the most friends to Like your page!
3) Run a promotion. Choose a fun prize you would like to give away. Set up an entry form online where the first step to enter is to Like your page on Facebook. Also incentivize people to share your promotion on their own Facebook page for additional entries.
4) Have some buttons made with the statement “Ask us about what we’re doing on Facebook”. When asked, tell your patients the benefits of Liking your page! Be sure to role play these conversations beforehand so staff members are comfortable.
If you’re feeling good about your Facebook proficiency, it may be time to add another tool. Consider Pinterest, Instagram, or a blog!
