How To Build Your Brand and Become the Practice of Choice Leveraging Social Media
About Luke Infinger
There are two things Luke Infinger knows for certain. One, he has a passion for helping people reach their fullest potential and two, he has a gift for marketing. He puts both together as co-founder of the thriving marketing agency, HIP Creative, out of Pensacola, Florida. What began as an idea five years ago has grown into an award-winning agency, working with some of the most notable names in orthodontics in the country including Dr. Ben Fishbein, Dr. Ed Wentz, and Dr. Jennifer Eisenhuth.
Today, HIP Creative helps doctors, specifically orthodontists, understand the importance of turning a practice into a brand. Armed with strategies, tools and a strong social network to other successful orthodontists, Luke, and his team have helped transform practices large and small into thriving businesses.
Luke co-created the Patient Acquisition & Retention Framework™, HIP Creative’s proprietary marketing tool. This structure is proven to grow clients’ revenue, in some cases by more than 400%. Using websites, social platforms, and an improved outlook on the patient journey, Luke helps orthodontists understand that a practice’s success hinges not on the first office visit but on the first contact. With this in mind, he regularly uses social media as the natural bridge between doctor and patient, one that can be easily crossed with the right tools and the right content at the right time.
