One of the biggest mistakes clinic owners make is to focus solely on the marketing of their business, and typically they’ll focus on just one marketing pillar rather than the six or seven strong ones they actually need to be feeding in to their website or getting the phone ringing.
MARKETING YOUR CLINIC
The number of leads you get should be the first thing you’re measuring. So, if you’re getting people to call you, you need to know where they’ve come from. Tracking numbers (these are phone numbers that exist in cyber space but
are directed to your landline or mobile) are a great way of achieving this because you can simply look at the itemised bill for that particular phone number, and see straight away how successful any advert has been.
If your strategy is to drive people to your website then you absolutely need to be using Google Analytics so that you can track where people are clicking through from – emails, social media, pay per click, and the like.

Increasing the Average Spend
Psychology of Pricing and Having Different Price Points
