As a dentist, if you’re on social media – you already know the importance of staying engaged with current and potential patients. In addition to posting about dental hygiene tips, special offers or promotions, and office news – have you considered using a Facebook poll as part of your content strategy?
Asking poll questions is a something that both large and small companies can benefit from asking. It allows you to:
- Gain a deeper understanding about your patients (current and potential)
- Get more content ideas for new posts
- Differentiate the types of content you’re posting about for more engagement and interaction
Create a Facebook Poll
To get started, simply go to your practice’s page, then into publishing tools and go to create a post. From there, click “poll” in the drop-down options.
From this option, you can insert your question and type the various answer options. You can also set the duration for how long you want the Facebook poll to last. Once you’re all set, simply hit publish and wait for the results to come in!
