Facebook, Twitter & Mobile…. VIDEO for Dentists

Videos now go hand in hand with good search engine optimization practices. Not only do they provide the informative content people want to see “live,” but they can also be used to help your website rank higher in the search results, thereby getting you more patients. The research group Forrester found that videos were 53 times (5300%) more likely to receive first page organic rankings than were traditional static text-only web pages.

Did you know that 48 hours of video are uploaded every minute to YouTube, resulting in nearly 8 years of content uploaded every day? It’s true… The fast-movers and early adopters (as they prove time and time again online) will take the Lion’s Share of the new patients, while the rest watch the “video train” rush by, wondering when their turn is.

OK – I’ve Got Video… Now What?

Leveraging your video properly includes so much more than just putting it on your website! Integrating your video into your social and mobile marketing strategies is paramount to your success.

Here’s what YouTube says about how their video gets spread around:

Social Video
--  17,000,000 people have connected their YouTube account to at least one social network (Facebook, Twitter, etc)
--  100,000,000 people take a social action on YouTube (likes, shares, comments, etc) weekly
