How to Engage Social Media Followers

How to Engage Social Media Followers | Digital Savvy Mompreneurs | Scoop.it

So, your medical or dental practice has a Facebook page, Google+, and even a Twitter. You’re posting a few informative, eye-catching social media posts every week. That’s it. That’s all there is to it, right? Not quite. The point of social media is to, well, be social. This is an important step in the social media process that many businesses forget. You won’t gain much traction simply by posting. You have to engage your audience to maintain and organically increase followers.

Don’t let the idea of engagement scare you. Simply put, it just means you need to continue humanizing yoursocial media marketing strategy to show followers that they are communicating with a real person, not a robot. Here are three simple ways to engage followers:

1. Respond in a timely manner.

If you don’t respond in a timely manner – or at all – you will lose credibility. Compare social networking to real-life networking. If someone came up to you to start a conversation at a business function, and you just stared at them, that would be awkward. It’s the same on social media.

Your followers may ask questions or leave comments on your posts, and they usually expect a response in real time. Obviously, the quicker you can respond, the better. While it’s not always possible to monitor your social media pages all day, we recommend responding to followers within 24 hours. For certain questions that may ask for medical advice or potentially interfere with HIPAA regulations, a simple response, such as: “Thank you for your question. Please call us at (555) 555-5555. We’re happy to discuss this with you!”

2. Ask questions.

It’s great to use social media marketing as a tool to inform patients of practice news, new technology, and procedures, but followers also want to talk to you. Mix up your posts with some questions to start a discussion. You can post medical or dental news, and simply ask your followers to share their opinions. You can ask what their holiday or weekend plans are. Right now, many of our plastic surgery practices are asking their followers what their favorite summer skin care products are.

3. Do not automate everything.

While it’s convenient to use tools like HootSuite to schedule posts ahead of time, do not rely on automation for everything. You’ll become predictable and seem like a robot. A schedule is great to ensure you always have content for social media, but if you’re doing something interesting or have exciting practice news to share, post it in real time. Be part of national conversations. If there is something currently trending on social media that is relevant to your practice, feel free to jump in on that conversation.

Business must not think that by simply being on Social Media Sites they are engaging with their customers. Buisnesses must remember to "humanize" their Social Media Marketing, this article reminds us that "the point of Social Media is to be social". Three of the best ways to remind social is to:
1. Respond Within 24 hours
2. Ask Consumers Questions
3. Be in Real Time - Do Not Automate

Customers need to be enticed. A few of the lessons Sarah Goliger teaches us are that:  When creating a title make it a question. Don't limit your audience by having a narrow topic; go broad. Use rarely used adjectives. and use language which talks about the customer not you. Basically, just be creative.

With Google's Help, 'Glamour' Monetizes Hangouts | Digital Savvy Mompreneurs | Scoop.it

Marketing trend? 'Glamour' is monetizing its Hangouts by bringing product placements into the mix.... In the two years since its launch, publishers large and small have experimented with Google Hangout to host group video chats with well-known guests, readers and staff, hoping to engage readers and attract new followers. Now, Google is helping publishers monetize their efforts. On Monday, Glamour magazine is launching a month-long series of Hangouts featuring staffers, online personalities — and products. Eight of the nine Hangouts are sponsored by a company, whose products are featured centrally in the content. In a Hangout for Unilever-owned Suave, for example, DIY blogger Erica Domesek will show how to make hair accessories for hair styled by Suave stylists. A L'Oreal-sponsored Hangout with Glamour stylist Annabel Tollman will show viewers how to wear ombré hair, as colored by Loreal's Féria Wild Ombré product....
