Wouldn’t it be great to know when your social media posts are attracting real patients? For practices that rely on telephone conversions to gain new business there are a number of techniques that can track the reach of social media posts.
These techniques typically allow you to see directly where patient conversions are coming from, without intruding on the customer experience. Here are three methods for tracking the ROI on your social media campaigns.
Coupons are a great method to encourage conversions and can also be used to track where those conversions are coming from. Offer a different coupon across various social platforms to see which perform best.
Benefits of coupons:
Having unique custom numbers for each media platform allows you to see where the majority of your calls and patients are coming from.
If you have a unique trackable number for all your social media channels, or one specifically for Google Places for instance, be sure to have that number displayed in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Page) along with a map and galleries. This will take traffic from the top position simply because it’s more convenient.
Benefits of virtual numbers:
For industries who rely on telephone conversions, call tracking can help you understand the role of the phone call in the patient journey. 65% of businesses still consider the phone their strongest lead source and so it pays to understand the role the phone has in the customer journey.
Benefits of call tracking:
Tracking social media ROI is still not an exact science, however these new techniques such as coupons, virtual numbers and call tracking are three ways for companies that rely on telephone conversions to measure success.
