By now it is common knowledge that social media is extremely important for Urgent Care Marketing. With that said, it's not enough to have a Facebook page. Social media has several angles that need to be covered. To help manage the demand Urgent Care 2.0 has a new social reporting tool - "Social Reporting 2.0". Below are some tips on how the new tool can be used to master social networking for urgent care.
1. Brand Following on the Main Channels -
The first step is getting out there. The top 5 social sites for Urgent Care right now are: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google + and Pinterest. Just know that this could change tomorrow so be flexible. From there you need to establish a following. (Likes, Follows, Connections, Circles, Pins…) Every channel has their lingo for when someone decides to connect with your brand. The more the merrier, but it’s not just about a large following, it's how you use it.
2. Follower Engagement -
Now that you’ve got people connecting with you on social channels how do you create engagement and why is it important? Let’s first answer the “why”. Without engagement no one is finding your activity relevant. No likes, shares, comments, re-tweets, pins, etc. You’re not going to get any new patients that way. Not only is a lack of engagement directly affecting your connection to your audience on those channels, it’s affecting how Google looks at you. One of the major ways they rank a website for a keyword is by social engagement. If your followers find you irrelevant then Google’s taking their cue and ranking you accordingly. The next part of that question is how do you create engagement. It’s all about relevant consistent activity on the social channels.
