There are many different ways to promote your medical practice without breaking your marketing budget. Start with a welcome kit for new patients. Your kit could include discounts on follow-up visits, coupons to local vendors in your neighborhood, magnets and pens with your practice’s name and address, or incentives for referring a friend.
Next, promote your practice by becoming involved in your local community. Participating in health fairs or health-related events at local schools and hospitals. Try public speaking at your local Chamber of Commerce or other community group. Book yourself on local talk shows or get interviewed by local publications to promote your practice. Work with a local charity or volunteer to meet prospective patients. Finally, focus on referrals in order to promote and expand your medical practice quickly and effectively.
In addition to simply asking your current patients to refer their family and friends, you can develop a referral system that rewards patients each and every time they recommend your practice. This could include financial discounts for each new patient they refer, priority appointment booking services, or other benefits that will encourage patients to spread the word about your practice. The best way to promote your medical practice is to build solid relationships with your patients and other service providers in your community.
