Advice for the Doctor – Provide a professional development plan for each team member. Create a multi-year CE plan for each team member, based on the individual’s current skills and goals, as well as on practice needs.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Stay motivated.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Stay motivated. Have you lost some of your referral marketing motivation? When life gets overwhelming and busy, many specialists slack off on communicating with referring doctors. To get back on track, make a game out of it. Create a scoring system based on the type of contact you have with referring doctors. We assign scores of five, four, three, two, and one to each activity depending on whether it’s time spent together in-person (a five!) or an email or text message(a one or two). Set numeric goals for your different levels of referring doctors (i.e. earning a monthly contact score of 30 with an “A” referrer) to keep you motivated.

Advice to Administrative Staff Members – Dress to impress.

Advice to Administrative Staff Members – Dress to impress. Patients come to your practice for professional services, so attire that’s too casual or sloppy will send the wrong message. Doctors and clinical staff can wear scrubs, but other staff members should rely on professional or business casual clothing to project trustworthiness.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Spend time with top referrers.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Spend time with top referrers. You have four types of referring doctors. A, B, C and D. A’s are your most important referring doctors and typically make up a larger percentage of referral revenue than the other three categories. Always focus first on your A’s. You should have your marketing coordinator visit their office every four weeks, and see them yourself at least every 6 to 8 weeks. When you spend quality time with A’s, their loyalty and referrals will increase.

For Practice Owners – Valuation Factor: The Lease.

For Practice Owners – Valuation Factor: The Lease. If you lease your office space, it can be a critical factor in practice valuation. A lease that expires within a year or two will reduce practice value to allow for moving expenses, unless it can be extended or renewed by the new owner. Work with your landlord to ensure that this will be possible.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Know the status of your referrals.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Know the status of your referrals. Are your referrals growing, flat, or declining? If they are flat or declining, what are you doing to turn things around? You could implement a referral marketing program, engage a part-time or full-time marketing coordinator, get feedback from patients and staff, or hold a strategic planning session to determine where you are and what you need to do. While some of this may seem overwhelming, most of it is very practical and step-by-step driven. Awareness is where it all begins. You just need to take the first step.

Learn from rejection of proposed treatment.

Learn from rejection of proposed treatment. When patients decline a case, you may tend to feel badly and take it personally. Learn to do what the best salespeople do. Rejection actually motivates them to do better the next time. You need to adopt this mindset. There will be rejections, but you should learn from each one and constantly work to improve the outcome of every consult.
