5. Steps to Successful Marketing in the Chiropractic Office
A successful marketing plan needs to have the following components:
- A Budget
- Time Limits
- A Designated Person in Charge
- Clear, Concise Statistics of All Results
Budget: Delegate a certain amount to be spent. That money should be marked and disbursed, irrespective of the initial results.
Direction: A comprehensive distinct plan needs to be laid out; i.e., newspapers, coupons, TV, etc. A successful directive must include diversification.
Time Limits: A marketing plan should yield a minimum expected return (result) by a given date and needs to be cancelled or changed if expectations are not met.
Person in Charge: The designated individual should have knowledge of multiple marketing processes and be prepared to make alternate decisions.
Statistics: To make a professional resolution of any change of plan, detailed statistics need to be kept and analyzed thoroughly. Predictable projections need to be met at 50%.
Marketing is the most important venue by which any business can grow exponentially.
