It’s Not Too Early to Talk About Back-to-School with Your Patients
PROMOTE BACK-TO-SCHOOL EYE EXAMS FOR KIDS
Back-to-school season is fast approaching, and July is the perfect time to start marketing to your patients with children. Healthy vision is a tool that every child needs to start their school year strong. Promote scheduling back-to-school eye exams early in the summer to your current and potential patients with these tips:
1. Pick a partner. Collaborate with a parent influencer or local teacher on social media. Eye health content is relevant to their audience. Parent influencers can create videos of the family’s experience during their eye exam at your practice. They can also create before and after testimonials of the children’s thoughts and experiences, which creates authenticity for the influencer. Teachers can focus on how a child’s vision impacts their ability to keep up in the classroom. Parents and teachers are invested in children’s eyes and their authenticity will come through in their posts.
2. Share a lesson in digital eye strain. Many schools use computers and tablets in their day-to-day curriculum, which can cause digital eye strain. Educate them about the benefits of lenses with blue light coating. Post social content about the great benefits of TechShield™ Blue light defense for children.1
3. Find the perfect fit. Fit is essential for any child's glasses. Children who are uncomfortable with the fit and style of the frames may go out of their way to avoid wearing them. Use social media to highlight the importance of having light, comfortable and durable frames for children.
