What are you doing today to manifest new patients next month? And next year?
Many become so occupied by the daily doings of chiropractic practice that they neglect practice promotion.
Except when their numbers are down.
The resulting overtures often communicate a subtle type of unattractive desperateness.
First Visit $49 – Regularly a $250 Value!
Selling chiropractic care, or anything else, based on price alone is the last resort of the unimaginative.
Instead, increase the visibility of your practice when you don't need new patients:
- Consistently soliciting patient reviews
- Holding public seminars and events
- Keeping in touch with your inactives
- Cultivating your social media following
- Blogging about your favorite businesses
Visibility translates into familiarity and familiarity often turns into brand preference when your services are eventually needed.
In other words, dig your well before you need water.
These days, it takes more than good hands, great results and extraordinary tableside manners.
