Increase engagement on your company Facebook page this week by sharing these 3 posts

Social media isn’t just for kids anymore. Businesses have been regularly increasing their digital marketing budgets each year, including social media strategy and management. Why? Because the average user logs in on social media for over an hour and a half a day – an average of 12 hours / week according to GlobalWebIndex. People of all ages are spending more time on social media than ever before, which is why your business should be strategically and consistently utilizing a Company Page on Facebook.

One valuable metric of social media performance is the engagement rate. Engagement on Facebook includes any time someone likes, shares, comments, or clicks on a post. When users take the time to interact with your posts, it is a good indicator that your content is reaching them on some level. In other words, when your social media engagement rate improves it is a tell-tale sign that your messaging is resonating with your audience.

Though every industry has nuances, there are a few types of posts that are generally well received by most social media audiences. Read on for the three social media posts you can share this week to improve engagement.

Pediatric healthcare websites serve multiple purposes. Visitors may be searching for specific medical specialties, hours and locations, general health resources, or information about certain doctors or service lines in their community. The challenge for marketers is to present all of this information in a strategic, visually compelling way.

Over this past year, we’ve found several websites that are too good not to share. Check out our five favorite pediatric websites of 2016 for some creative inspiration. Enjoy!

1. Allegro Pediatrics

Allegro Pediatrics website

What we like most about it: The Allegro Pediatrics website stands out with its attention to design detail. It uses design elements that aren’t overly childlike but still reinforce the focus on pediatrics. For example, the playful colors, fonts, and icons, as well as the child imagery used throughout.

Internal Marketing Benefits Your Employees and Customers

Think about your interactions with the employees of another business. Which ones left you wanting to come back for more - wanting to come back to spend more of your money on their product or service? Chances are, it was because you had a good experience where the interaction felt clear and profitable. The decision-makers of that business are doing something to achieve that clarity and value for you, and it is all a function of their marketing. Salespeople, account managers, producers, and customer service reps are all extensions of their brand, pieces of the marketing mix who touch customers in various ways regularly – make sure they are a part of your marketing strategy.

How can you help ensure that your employees are satisfied, and in turn satisfying your customers? Read on to see how you can consider internal marketing, how it impacts employees, and how it can have a big impact on your external brand - and your bottom line.

Three reasons to hire a professional website designer

Your website is often the first impression people have of your business. Do you treat it that way?

When people come to TBH Creative for a website redesign, they often come to us with a website that wasn’t designed by a professional website designer and they now realize the limitations of that decision. Whether that decision was driven by budget or convenience doesn’t matter. The fact is, that company short-changed their website and are feeling the pains of it now: the website isn’t generating enough leads; sales people don’t use it as part of their process; it doesn’t clearly present company benefits; it’s a poor representative of their brand.

Someone who can make a website that doesn’t just look cool but that accomplishes concrete business goals.
