Marketing Your Practice: Top 3 Mistakes to Avoid
Marketing is perhaps among one of the most important aspects of a successful business — it educates potential customers about your business and drives sales and revenue, making marketing just as essential to the success of your Audiology clinic as it is for any other business. But there are a few common mistakes that Audiology clinics should avoid, and doing so will greatly improve the results of your marketing efforts.
Avoid these 3 common marketing mistakes to start improving your marketing results now:
- Not having a clear marketing strategy and marketing goals before getting started. This leads to an ineffective one-size-fits-all approach. Effective marketing needs to be focused and direct.
- Not measuring or tracking your successes and failures. Whether it be number of phone calls, website visits, or something else, measuring the results of your efforts should always be a priority. This will help you understand what is working and what isn’t.
- Not enough frequency with ad placements. Too often, businesses give up after one ad placement. With any ad (printed or digital), repetition is important. Have confidence that with a clear marketing strategy, results will come over time.
The field of Audiology itself has changed over the years, and along with those changes, the way we market our services and products has too. This evolution has occurred due to a shift in consumer demands and behaviors as well as an overall shift in marketing strategies. During our Audiology Online course, “Marketing Fundamentals for Hearing Aid Practices”, we will look at how Audiologists can leverage both marketing strategy and consumer behavior in order to develop a marketing plan that reaches your target audience and creates loyal consumers.
