How Video Helps Your Practice
How to boost SEO and word-of-mouth advertising with Video Testimonials
We all want simple effective marketing that works. If you have a smartphone, this will work for you.
During a post-operative appointment, if a patient expresses their joy with their results, ask them if they’ll say it on camera and sign written authorization for HIPAA compliance. Then just pull out your smartphone. That’s all you need because in this example video quality is less important than the person giving the testimony. And since it’s not a big production, the patient will feel more relaxed and it will be more natural, all of which will play well with the viewer. Just a simple 15 – 30 second quote is all you need.
Now post that to your YouTube and/or Facebook. Facebook video posts are a fantastic way to generate buzz – just don’t tag the patient or identify them in any way and be sure to get written authorization to post. YouTube posts are great for SEO. Identify the keywords you want to perform better on in searches, then use them in the title and description of the video.

These videos do not require much to produce, just a smartphone that shoots video. But, with a little more work, you can make a good-looking video.
