Advice for the Team – Keep administrative duties from reducing production.

Advice for the Team – Keep administrative duties from reducing production. Your practice has a team for a reason—to make it possible for the doctor to spend more time chairside, providing care to patients. When you’re trained and empowered to do what you were hired to do, you’ll be on your way to a more rewarding career and a more successful practice.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Host a Seminar.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Host a Seminar. One of the best strategies to demonstrate appreciation for referring doctors is to host a seminar for the doctors and their staff. Between the save-the-dates, invitations, seminar, and follow-up, you’ll probably spend at least six months in ongoing communication with referring doctors and their staff. This is an incredible opportunity. Contacting and working with doctors and staff before, during, and after a seminar allows you to achieve 12 – 15 touch points from single strategy. While this is not an inexpensive strategy, if you amortize the cost over the number of times you make contact with referring doctors in the process it’s less expensive than you may think. More importantly the results are fantastic—continual gratitude and stronger relationships.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Reach Out.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Reach Out. As an endodontist you don’t have a lot of time to spend on referral marketing. That’s why you have a marketing coordinator. But there’s one thing the endodontist must do personally each day. It takes 10 minutes or less and, over time, it will deliver fantastic results. What is it? Simply reaching out to referring doctors. Send an email to one referring doctor each day regarding a personal topic or patient. Forward online articles on interesting dental topics to a referring doctor text group. You can even leave a voicemail for a doctor, thanking them for their referrals. Taking ten minutes out of your day to reach out is simple, and yet extremely powerful.

Advice for the Practice Owner – Before making a decision ask yourself, “Will this benefit our patients?” To become a more patient-centric practice, you should look at every decision—large or small—in terms of patient benefits.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Be Supportive.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Be Supportive. One of the things that referring doctors appreciate greatly is knowing that their specialist is there for total support. At some point, every referring doctor will run into a challenge or problem. It may be a diagnostic question, a treatment that did not work out, or an unhappy patient. Referring doctors who know that they can count on a specialist to help them when these types of circumstances arise have a high level of appreciation. Let referring doctors know that you will be there to give them support when they need it for any reason. This goes a long way to enhancing a powerful relationship.

Advice for the Marketing Coordinator – Don’t panic when a once-successful strategy fails to perform. It happens. Even the best strategies can fall flat, especially if they have been overused. Solution: Use a wide variety of strategies throughout the year. A strong marketing mix engages patients and referring offices more effectively than just a few strategies.

Advice for the Marketing Coordinator – Get to know the local business community.

Advice for the Marketing Coordinator – Get to know the local business community. Visit nearby businesses and introduce yourself. Even though your practice may be in the same shopping center or neighborhood as other businesses, your office may not be their first choice for dental care… until you raise your local profile. A little community outreach can go a long way toward bringing in more new patients.
