It is not just that we have mastered our marketing texts well. Our consistent success with plastic surgery marketing is also due to the fact that we understand the dynamics of the marketplace and accordingly devise promotional strategies for a practice. Years in this business and working with innumerable clients have made us realize that plastic surgery marketing campaigns often fall flat on their faces because the following three tips are not adhered to:
• Find a niche target audience. This is true of every effective marketing strategy. In case of plastic surgery marketing, it means that your campaign should start off by determining the target audience base that is most likely to go in for plastic surgery and then devising ploys to reach out to them with customized messages. So, you may shout from the rooftops for all your worth but you will only succeed in shouting yourself hoarse if your voice does not reach those who care about their looks.
• Strengthen and maintain relations with existing clients. This is probably one plastic surgery marketing tip that often gets ignored in the rush to secure new patients. But consider this—your existing clients are keen to maintain their looks and it is likely that this interest will only increase as they age. Besides they have already undergone a surgical procedure in your hands so they do not need to be convinced again. Maintaining relations with them will actually increase your chances of repeat business and referrals.
• Build your credibility with word-of-mouth advertising. Plastic surgery marketing is not only about shouting from the billboards and splashing about newspapers and magazines. If you indulge in only these, you might just get branded as someone who blows his own trumpet too loudly and therefore is greedy. So, once in a while let someone else, a credible entity definitely, put in a word for you. And for this, your plastic surgery marketing strategy must include steps to forge strategic alliances with other physicians, hospitals, and also your patients.
When the afore-mentioned tips are diligently followed, you can be sure that your plastic surgery marketing campaign will be immensely effective. Call The HealthCare Marketing Group, at 800.258.0702 to know how we can implement these measures for your practice.
