Episode Highlights

Dr. Buck’s Insights on Establishing Your Online Business and Social Media Branding

Doctor Turned Entrepreneur

  • His family of business owners influenced him. Even while in medical school, building a business was in the back of his mind.
  • During his research year in residency in 2006, he started researching online businesses and e-commerce stores.
  • He stumbled upon e-books for sale. He took inspiration from it, spending about six months researching and building his website.
  • He optimized email marketing and used Google Ads to market affiliate products.
  • The product was in demand at that time, so his competitors spent more money on their marketing. He drifted out with the changing environment.

Taking It to Social Media

  • When he finished his residency, he released his weight-loss course.
  • When he was cast on a TV show, people were asking him for information about being a doctor.
  • It gave him the idea to take it to social media and organize his social media branding efforts. Within nine months, he gained a following of about 100,000 on Instagram and nearly 50,000 subscribers on YouTube.
  • He then realized that he could monetize his social media presence using his social media networks.
  • He built a video course on how to study for students, especially those who want to get into medicine.

Phases and Milestones

  • In the beginning, he did his own SEO by writing articles and creating backlinks and social media posts. He also did personal ads for a social media platform. He did all these social media marketing efforts to gain success.
  • The first phase helped him understand how everything works. So when he hires someone, he knows whether they’re doing a good job or not.
  • Then, the second phase is learning that you can’t be an expert at everything.
  • The third phase is realizing you can’t do everything alone. You can’t go big without strategic partners and social media users.

The Power of Social Media Branding and Influencers

  • The best thing you could do with your money is to have influencers promote your products.
  • This strategy helps build your brand voice.
  • He explains that it is a “slippery slope” because some influencers don’t know their value. If you do it right, however, it can be powerful.

The Biggest Mistakes in Running an Online Business

  • The mindset of doing everything on your own for your social media branding game.
  • You have to make mistakes and learn from other people.
  • Being hasty about your brand voice.
  • Trying to focus on many things.

The Future of Online Businesses

  • In the next 5 to 10 years, Dr. Buck thinks that there would be a lot more “sneaky marketing.”
  • Marketing would be more personalized and specific to a niche or a market.
  • He looks at patient experience, like selling customer service in social media channels.
  • Some surgeons don’t like his channel because it seems too raw for them. However, Dr. Buck says it’s his way of speaking to his market.

Habits to Success

  • Learning is lifelong.
  • “Nobody’s successful at anything they don’t like.”
