Marketing isn’t a ‘One Trick Pony’; in fact, a powerful marketing platform is multi-layered. To successfully market your practice and retain patients, you need to be current with the times, because patient’s expectations have changed. Your team will consider traditional, digital and interactive marketing. This fast paced, fun presentation will demonstrate an effective marketing strategy that is affordable, high quality and easy to implement. The new patient experience is special; you only have one opportunity to WOW your new patient. Within 5-10 minutes, your new patient will decide if he or she will continue to come, refer friends or family or discontinue as your patient.

Your team will be able to implement and understand:

  • The number of new patients you need to meet your goals.
  • How each team member matters to the success of your practice.
  • Your advertising and customer retention budget.
  • Know the systems that are a must for a successful marketing campaign.
  • Your phones: A Joy or an Ouch?
  • The new patient flow thru the office.
  • Verbal skills that increase case acceptance.
  • Effective financial presentations.
