What will YOU do differently next year? If your practice is not where you want it to be, you may want to make a list of things you'll do differently to market your practice next year. Remember that you can't do the same things over and over again, and expect different results. This is certainly true when you're marketing your practice.
I've had the privilege of working with thousands of practices during my healthcare marketing career. I've learned that there are a few important things that all Heathcare Assistant Recruitmentsuccessful practices do that make them successful. As you plan your marketing efforts for next year, let me help you by providing a list of similarities that most successful practices have. If you're not doing these already, they should be on your list of New Year's resolutions.
* Establish clear and measurable goals - Every successful practice has clear goals and objectives. Determine where you want your practice to be a year from now, as well as in the long-term. Then develop a plan to get there.
* Have a sufficient budget - Successful practices know that they have to spend money in order to make money. The key is establishing the right budget so you don't spend too much or too little.
* Develop a marketing system - Successful practices have a marketing plan, they implement their plan, and they measure results. If you do this effectively, you can make adjustments to your plan if you need to. "Spaghetti marketing", which are random, inconsistent marketing activities, simply don't work.
* Commitment - To be successful, you'll need to have commitment to marketing your practice. Effective marketing is not done occasionally, it's done consistently. Peaks and valleys can wreak havoc on your profits. Growing a practice profitably is best done through manageable growth.
* Get support to help you - The most successful practices understand their strengths and their weaknesses. For most doctors, marketing is not their strength.
