Why Social Media Communication is Key

Your relationship with your clients and patients is very important because it is that trust and quality partnership that will ensure the ongoing success of your company. Doctors are constantly dealing with a large influx of patients, most of whom, if they feel like the doctor actually cares for them and what they have to say, will feel more comfortable and be willing to come back in the future. Good communication is the key to establishing a good relationship with your clients or patients. Communicating with your patients and clients on and off your office hours will show them that you are dedicated to helping out those in your community and can add a ton of personality to your image. There is nothing quite as good for personal branding as being a quality resource and trusted advisor for a large community.

We know that physicians are busy throughout the day with all the work around the office so few can take the time to physically talk to each one of their patients on a regular basis. That is why many doctors have started to use popular social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ as a way to easily reach their patient base. These sites allow one to connect to your patients and clients without it getting in the way of work. There are millions of people using social media websites today and taking full advantage of the possibilities they offer can greatly improve the relationship between a service provider or business and its customers. You can share information about your company, including information about the services you provide or any new specials that you are having. To complement this it is also important that a a physician’s website and blog be properly optimized for sharing and social interaction.

By staying in constant communication with patients, a doctor can not only share practice news like additions to staff, changes in schedule, awards won or services provided but also effectively market new promotions, medical devices or innovative procedures. On Facebook and Google+ one can post any information that patients might need in a a very easily accessible area for them. Even more effective is the capacity to be a valuable community resource by giving real-time advice to individuals who look for professional assistance with a problem. To know that their doctor is just a quick message away can make them feel more relieved and secure and wil certainly have them telling all their friends and family about that great doc who helped them in a time of need without asking for anything in return. Twitter  in particular is an excellent tool to pick up on local medical questions and give back helpful information instantaneously which is public to a huge pool of potential patients.
