Marketing has been redefined Moving from professional story tellers to conversation managers and facilitators Marketing is now a dialogue, not a monologue Engagement is what we’re after; required in today’s healthcare environment It is your reputation that’s on the line Being absent from social media is conspicuous The conversations are happening with or without us The quality of info being shared is suspect, so we have an obligation to get involved It is highly measurable!

  • Social Physician Dr. Luks – 17% of new patients come through social media; More than 50% visit his website before the 1st appointment. • “Patients who discover me via social media and my Web site tend to arrive far better prepared and informed. They’re also more comfortable with me, thanks to watching my videos. All this makes my time with them more productive and more efficient.”
  • Create a Plan Draft a Simple Plan: • • • • • • • • • Organizational readiness? Appetite for SM. Who are you trying to reach? What are your goals and objectives? How will you determine success? What platforms does your audience use? Communication channels. Start by being a voyeur. Listen and learn. Integrate messaging with other communications. Measure and monitor. Avoid burnout. Take it in bite sized pieces.
  • Quiz Monitoring your practice brand: • How many of you have Google Alerts set up with your practice name as the search term? • “Physician name” + “your organization” • “Physician name” (variations) • Search periodically with different search engines: try Bing • You must be vigilant
