7 Most Common Mistakes In Branded Social Media Profiles

  1.  Bad design.
  2. Lack of consistent design.
  3. Not enough ways to contact you.

  5. Corny stock photos.

Mistake #7, "Your profiles are a desert", is particularly relevant and surprisingly simple to fix.

Potential patients will check out your Facebook account to learn more about your office, and the last thing you want them to see is that your last post was in 2017. They will quickly dismiss you and even assume that you've gone out of business.
