Awareness about the importance of branding has motivated more hospitals to make the effort when it comes to the look of their social media. 91.8% of iVET360’s clients have branded Facebook pages.
OF HOSPITALS HAVE A BRANDED FACEBOOK PAGE
As the internet continues to expand, your Facebook page’s visibility naturally dwindles. So that your clients and other members of the community can recognize your hospital on Facebook immediately, the practice’s visual branding should extend to your Facebook page. Think of it this way: your practice will be listed in a user’s newsfeed along with their friends, so you want your content to be easily noticeable and not just something that gets skipped over.
In this study, we are scoring practices based on a rubric of visibility. Is your logo used? Are your colors user-friendly? We have seen hospitals switch out their Facebook image for something like a staff member’s pet, or a pet of the month--and while this is cute, it does degrade visibility. Simply put, your profile photo needs to be your logo or another identifiable marker that makes your hospital stand out.
Hospitals that have a branded page also saw a 2.5 percent increase in the number of reviews/ recommendations over those that did not.
