Why Outsourcing Management Of Your Health Facility’s Social Media Makes Sense

Posted on May 7th, 2021

As part of any digital marketing campaign you are instigating for your health facility, it is almost certain that social media will be an integral part of it. As the digital marketing professionals at Slinky Digital point out, any digital marketing campaign that does not include social media will produce less-than-average results.

Many business owners and managers are tempted to avoid social media because they fear it will be a significant drain on their time. This is understandable, as, unlike many other elements of a digital marketing campaign, social media is not one where you set it up and sit back. Instead, it tends to be ongoing.

Using social media for marketing can, in some instances, occur daily. Thus, it is understandable that if you run and manage a health facility, you would feel unable to commit to it for fear of compromising your other responsibilities.

Thankfully, there are solutions to this dilemma, and the one that has proven time and time again to be the most successful is to pass the responsibility for implementing your social media marketing to a digital marketing agency. They will have the people, resources, and, most importantly, the know-how and experience to create, implement and expand your social media marketing to achieve the desired results.

5 Ways To Use Digital Marketing To Protect Your Botox Clinic’s Online Branding

Posted on April 25th, 2021

If there is something that all businesses, including Botox clinics, strive to achieve, it is a strong and good reputation, and how that reputation impacts the business’s brand can have both positive and negative long-term consequences. Reputations can be damaged in an instant, but, as the digital marketing and SEO specialists often advise clients, digital marketing can help to protect a brand, and repair it should something happen which tarnishes that brand.

As for what specific digital marketing strategies you can use to protect or rebuild your Botox clinic‘s brand there are a number of them, but here we are going to focus on just five, as we believe these are the ones that will have the most significant and positive impact.

Do Not Use Hyped Advertising

The first area where you want to protect your brand is with your use of advertising, and in particular what you say within it. Of course, you want to promote your product and services and the use of positive language and images to do so is perfectly fine but know where to draw the line with respect to the claims which you make. Bear in mind, online customers are far savvier than ever before and able to easily see through hyped advertising on the internet, so avoid using any.

Do Not Misuse Social Media

Social media can be an awesome marketing tool if it is used in the right way, but sadly too many businesses use it the wrong way and then wonder they are not getting any traffic from their social media pages. The clue is in the name ‘social’ which means people go to these sites to be entertained, learn something, communicate with others, and catch up with what is trending.

Facial Exercises and Botox 

Facial Exercises and Botox 

Posted on April 7th, 2021

One of the most popular reasons why people get Botox is so that they can reduce the appearance of wrinkles. While it’s effective in doing so, Botox can take between three and four days to take effect. For people who have waited until the last minute to get Botox for a special event, speeding up the process can be crucial.

Some doctors and approved Botox practitioners used to tell their patients to carry out facial exercises to speed up the process, but there was no evidence to back up that it actually worked. So, it wasn’t widely encouraged or trusted as a way to smooth out those wrinkles quicker.

However, research carried out in 2018 shows that facial exercises can, in fact, shave 1-2 days off the wait time for Botox to take effect.

Study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology

A study involving 22 adult women was carried out by Dr. Murad Alam, a dermatology professor at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Alam is also a Northwestern Medicine physician.

All women with forehead wrinkles were treated with a botulinum toxin. Over four afters after receiving the treatment, 11 women were then asked to exercise their facial muscles. The other 11 were told not to do anything.

By ‘perform’, we do not mean how the website functions technically, nor its appearance, although these could conceivably be influenced by the answers to the 3 questions we are discussing, but rather, what it is achieving with respect to growing the business it represents, converting prospects, and promoting the business’s brand. By now, you are probably wondering what those 3 questions are, so let us look at them, and why we ask them.
