Today marks Courtney’s 4th year with Cosmetic Social Media. She is BEYOND amazing as evidenced by some quick calculations we made:
4 years and roughly…
18,000 Facebook posts
7,000 Pinterest pins
2,200 Instagram pics
3,000 Google+ posts
54,000 Unique Short-link clicks
It’s nothing short of phenomenal… and so is she. We love her to pieces and know that Cosmetic Social Media would not be the same without her sweet smile, sharp wit, impeccable grammar, endless content ideas, the list goes on and on.
Help us give her a much-deserved round of applause. (And maybe a vacation?!)
We take pride in the social media, marketing, and design services we perform for our clients. So we’d love to have you help “share the love” by giving us a vote on the San Diego Mojo Awards.

We here at Cosmetic Social Media are so honored to have won this award for our social media services on behalf of the San Diego Crew Classic. The Crew Classic is our community service client – so 100% free. We especially want to thank our amazing volunteers on this special project, Barbara Beran, John Ramsey, and Julia Ramsey (yes, they are related, wink!). Their lightening-fast fingers tweeted and posted up a storm, creating a spark and energy that was a fabulous addition to the 40th Anniversary Regatta.
And if you don’t know much about the San Diego Crew Classic, it is an incredible San Diego event. If you are lucky enough to live nearby, be sure to check it out next April 5 & 6, 2014 on beautiful Mission Bay. They have over 4,400 rowers and over 25,000 attendees during the weekend event. They are going into their 41st year of highlighting the best collegiate, juniors, and masters rowers in the country.
The San Diego Crew Classic is definitely living up to its name as America’s Premier Spring Regatta, now online as well as on the water.
We are proud to have Monique’s latest article featured in the Fall 2012 edition of Surge magazine – the official publication of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS). In Part One of this series, Monique explored five common mistakes that medical practices make make when trying to execute their social media plan. In this second part of the series, you will learn 5 more social media faux pas and how to avoid being “cyberspace roadkill”.
P.S. Monique is speaking at the AACS Annual Meeting in January 2012. Be sure to stop by her lectures, Cutting Through the Facebook Noise: How to Make Sure Your Audience Sees your Messages and In Synch: Making Your Online and Offline Brand and Voice Congruent on Thursday, January 17th in the afternoon panel (S1-05 ). See full AACS 2012 meeting schedule here.
In this edition of “Cosmetic Social Media In the News” we’re sharing an interesting little article in this month’s issue of DuJour magazine in which our Founder and CCO, Monique Ramsey, is quoted.
The piece explores how to deal with patient privacy in today’s hyper-connected world. Should you require patients to turn off all cell phones in case they Instagram, tweet, or upload to Facebook a photo of your waiting area? Should you post a sign with your office policies regarding privacy? Monique’s quote was cut short, but her opinion on the subject is echoed by Boston cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Ruth Tedaldi, in the last paragraph.
We hope you find the topic thought provoking. Feel free to leave us your thoughts about the topic of “privacy” in today’s hyper-connected world.
We are excited to bring you our latest blog post for MediBEAUTY.biz, the physician side of the very popular cosmetic surgery consumer site, RealSelf. In this post, we give you the first 5 mistakes we see being made in social media and what you should be doing instead. But if you know us, surely you know that we couldn’t keep the list to just 5 (and stop calling me Shirley). Stay tuned because we’re doing a follow-up post next week with a few more faux pas being made and how we suggest handling things instead.
Here’s a staggering statistic… did you know that 96% of people who like a Facebook page NEVER go back to that brand’s wall? We’re here to help you avoid the costly social media mistakes and give your fans a reason to show up and engage with your practice.
Whether you are on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, or just thinking about “going social”, there are some things you’ll want to avoid if you are going to have the best chance for social media success.
Sorry, dear readers, but I have been busy and neglected you (all 2 of you…LOL). So, what might be more important than blogging here? Well… here is an update (condensed version):
WON the 2010 #influenceSD award for Best Social Media in Business category for my work with La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre’s social media campaign. For more info, click here: http://influencesd.com/winners/
Attended the 2010 Annual Meeting of ASAPS (The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) in Washington, DC. I met some wonderful physicians, made a few great business connections, and picked up a client or two. Only Regret: didn’t have time to sight see at all… next time!! Highlight: Attended a Baltimore Orioles home game vs NY Yankees (Orioles won!) AND I got a photo with the big stuffed orange bird!). Also made time to drive over to see Charm City Cakes… for you fellow Food Network junkies – they were filming inside so I couldn’t see in — but took a few photos and have a wicked awesome crab cake at The Dizz (formerly Dizzy Izzy’s) next door. Oh… and I bought Charm City Cakes t-shirts for the family.
