The lessons that can be learnt from plastic surgeons who are turning to social media’s live streaming.

This week I caught footage on the news of a Plastic Surgeon who was using Live streaming via Social Media platforms. Being a mscreen-shot-2016-09-09-at-12-25-52marketer right away I though how creative? Who would have thought. For years I’ve been spreading the word telling business owners that they need to start embracing video in their marketing effects but many are still very skeptical after all these years.

I then took to the net to see if I could learn more about this surgeon, but to my surprise it seems to be much more popular than I thought and  I stumbled across a few surgeons that were embracing the trend.

Dr Cortes a surgeon based in Houston, Texas told KPRC Click to Houston that “people are more hungry for information and by being able to watch certain surgeries live helps put their minds at rest”. Dr Cortes believes that this kind of engagement calms fear.

According to a report on the American Society of Plastic Surgeons website up to half of the surgeons in America use Social Media as a marketing tool. Surgeons felt it was an effective marketing tool and a great platform for patients to be educated about various procedures and practices.

More businesses need to embrace Social Media as it has proven that it is here to stay and if you don’t you will be left behind.
