Skin Inc.    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

In fact, you may have dozens or scores of advocates without even realizing it: They are the satisfied patients who are ready, willing and happy to share their aesthetic experiences with others through social media and other word-of-mouth channels. In marketing parlance, they're "brand advocates" and they represent some of the most powerful resources you can tap to promote your practice. Why do they do it? According to eMarketer, the top two reasons are good experiences with a product or service (50 percent) and because they want to help others make smarter purchasing decisions (37 percent). More
