Prepare your specialty practice to come back stronger than ever.
For all these years your referring doctors have supported you, now it’s your turn to support them.
For over 30 years, Levin Group has offered dental specialists the only available comprehensive Referral Marketing Program, evolving and improving it continuously in response to the ever-changing dental environment. Now, Dr. Roger Levin and the Levin Group Consultants have developed the innovative Referring Doctor Success Module and added it to the Program to create Referral Marketing PLUS™— the most effective marketing program for increasing referrals ever devised. Ensure your practice success by providing your GPs the path to a faster, better and deeper recovery, which leads to increased referrals to you.
Now is the time to innovate and approach your marketing in a new way. One that goes beyond building strong relationships but also provides your referring doctors the business tools they need to recover from this crisis and restore their growth. When you do this, they will view you in an entirely new light – as the source of their practice recovery. And they will always remember your commitment to them!
Referral Marketing PLUS™ now includes an amazing new module that provides specific and detailed practice management and practice building strategies for you to deliver to your referring doctors. This is in addition to all the cutting-edge, relationship-building strategies that are the hallmark of our program. And Levin Group provides it all, including the training your marketing coordinator will need to implement it.
Why Referral Marketing is Essential to the Future of Your Specialty Practice
You live and die on referrals. That is the #1 business rule for all dental specialists. Levin Group pioneered the concept of referral-based marketing in the dental profession.
Building on the success of our industry-leading Referral Marketing Consulting Program, and in response to the unprecedented changes taking place because of COVID-19, we developed and added yet another level of highly effective specialized programming to help your referring doctors to recover from the COVID-19 crisis.
And we position you as the source of that programming. Your best customers will recognize that you are fully committed to their survival and success.
Great companies know that if they make their customers more successful they will be more successful- and referring doctors are your customers!
What have you done to give back to referring doctors? One delivery? One seminar? One study club? Those are nice but they will no longer be enough. They count, but now you must raise your game. If you do, you will attract more referrals and new referral sources.
Levin Group’s approach to referral marketing has already helped over 7,000 specialty practices since 1985 and in this NEW program based on the Referral Recovery Pyramid, one of our expert Levin Group Consultants will guide you step by step through every stage.
What is the Referral Recovery Pyramid and How Does it Increase Referrals?
The Referral Recovery Pyramid is the easiest way to understand the future of referral marketing for specialists. We are now entering a new era of referral marketing. The COVID-19 crisis will shift referral patterns and referrals in unprecedented ways.
The foundation of referral marketing has always been Recognition. Recognition does not simply mean your referring doctors are aware of you, it requires a meaningful level of engagement. A lunch, or a handshake at a study club meeting or maybe an invite to your annual party are all “good starts”, but in Referral Marketing PLUS™ your consultant will guide your practice to develop high brand awareness, strong name recognition and deep market exposure for your practice. It is essential that this foundation be strong and solid to support the next two levels of the pyramid and reach the highest levels of referrals.
The next tier of the pyramid is Relationship. For the last 36 years Levin Group has worked with over 7,000 specialty practices to help them build strong relationships with referring doctors. Once true relationships are built, the referral faucet will open. In your Referral Marketing PLUS™ program your practice will be trained to implement the most effective relationship-building strategies ever made available to dental specialists. Your GPs will not only recognize your practice, but they will count you as a friend and trusted colleague.
Prior to COVID-19, relationship-building was the most effective method of developing a GP-to-Specialist referral pipeline and practices flourished. Levin Group identified that specialty practices will now require a higher level of engagement with their referring doctors – one that demands they support their recovery and help them keep their business on-track for the foreseeable future.
The top and new tier of the Referral Recovery Pyramid is Referring Doctor Success. Referring Doctor Success requires a new philosophy. It literally means viewing your referring doctors as your customers. And the level at which you support your primary customers will have a direct impact on your own level of success.
Specialty practices that will be successful in the post-COVID-19 era will be the ones that implement a referral marketing campaign that includes Recognition, Relationship and now, Referring Doctor Success.
Read on to learn how Referral Marketing PLUS™ provides all three levels of the Referral Recovery Pyramid (including the newest, most critical level) and activates the growth trajectories of production and referrals for your specialty practice.
