Course DescriptionWhat makes this lecture different is that we cover areas that are not well understood by dentists when it comes to on line presence or social media. After speaking to many Study Clubs, many dentists are clinically adept and not quite sure how to market or promote their practice. The traditional methods of marketing are dying. From print to radio, and tv, these media are less important. So how does one get on the first page of Google? I cover every step and help clarify the misconceptions of Social Media. Recommendations coming from existing patients that have been seen and treated by yourself are the most important types of referrals. Years ago this was called word of mouth. Its the same, only leveraging the Social Media platforms to spread the information. I call this Recommendation Marketing because; truly that’s what it is in a different form. My lecture covers Recommendation Marketing as well as other areas of digital use and convergence in dentistry. I cover social media apps for use in the practice, and communication thru videos.
