Social Media Tactics to Grow Your Practice

Length: 90 minutes Expert: Jamie Verkamp

If you DON’T think that social media is affecting your practice — it’s time to take your head out of the sand…

Whether you like it or not, your patients are using social media to post their opinions about your physicians and practice (both good and bad). Then, your potential patients are using those comments to choose (or not choose) your practice, which can seriously affect your bottom line. So what should you do?

Whether you’re a beginner or an online expert, social media educator, Jamie Verkamp can help. Her upcoming online seminar will give you proven tactics so you can stop social media from hurting your practice’s reputation and from costing you big.

This 60-minute webinar will help you protect your practice, and teach you how to use social media to bring more patients in the door. Here is just some of the practical advice you’ll receive:

• Take control of your online reputation – faster and easier than you thought possible
• Key pitfalls to avoid when implementing your social media strategy
Maintain your compliance while managing your social media ranking
• Determine if you need a Reputation Management Company, and how pick the right one fast
• Manage your social media standing without it eating up your time

Social media is quickly becoming the key form of communication for all ages, and your patients are posting their opinions about you — the challenge is they can say anything they want (even if it’s not true). So, you really have 2 options:

• You can choose to ignore what your patients are saying and social media, OR
• You can choose to TAKE CONTROL.

Don’t wait, take control. In only 60 minutes, you’ll have what you need to make social media work for you, and stop it from hurting your practice.
