We’ve told you that patients not only deeply appreciate a gift of premium lip balm but that they also use it — in public, resulting in thousands of impressions for under a dollar.

What we want to talk about next is how these premium lip balms, used in tandem with social media campaigns, can amplify your message and literally make you a household name.

For instance, lip balms with your practice logo can be individualized with a different number for each patient who receives one. So you can announce weekly drawings for gifts and services on your Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts to drive traffic there and to your website. This generates conversations about you and your practice, what we call buzz.

For lack of a better way to put it, social media engagement lays the groundwork for strong relationships between you and your patients and, by extension, their friends. These people can be a wellspring of patients for your practice.
