Remember that Instagram isn't just for photos, so your selection of posts should also be occasional text-based photos or videos.

Include Your Staff

There are several ways all of your staff can join in keeping an effective Instagram presence. Staff members can assist you with content creation and workflow. If one of your staff has Instagram experience, you might want to help them think the "big picture" about your Instagram strategy by letting them lead. Because Instagram allows several different people to log into a single account, the rest of the staff can also help create content and save them as "drafts". They can take images from within the clinic and interview you. All of these efforts will help to spice up your staff's ordinary workday while making your practice look more intimate and inviting. Note, however, that not every staff member will fully understand or enjoy using Instagram.

Get Inspired by Other Aesthetic Accounts
