The iPad 3 is here! Time to buy iPad 2s for reviews!
Posted by Fred Joyal
With the release of the new iPad, you can now get the old iPad2 for as little as $400. For those of you who have heard me speak, you know I suggest getting iPads to have in your office so that patients can use them to “like” your Facebook page and post on your wall, and also do a photo or video that you can use for your website as well as social media.
If you haven’t done it, now is the time, because you don’t need iPad 3s. All you want is the most basic iPad 2, with just wifi, because it will still do everything, and now it’s cheaper than ever.
This falls into the category of making things as easy as possible to get the most results. If you want a few reviews, ask people to do them when they get home. If you want tons of reviews, “likes” and comments, get some iPads. And once get them, go to http://www.skinit.com and buy adhesive covers so that you can put your Facebook username right on the front (like I did here for my book page). Also put your Yelp address on the bottom, and if your patients do Yelp reviews they can post something nice there as well.
Remember, you don’t want them doing Google reviews from the iPad. Google disregards multiple reviews that come from the same device. Ask them to do it on their phone. They can find the office on a Google map and log in (if they have a gmail address) and review your practice.
The extra added benefit is people will see you as a modern, high tech practice. That’s a good thing.
