Qi Infusing Strategy #1 – Grow your list

Does this situation sound familiar? You get a new patient, they come in a for a few treatments, and then, they disappear? It’s almost as if your patient vanishes and decides to no longer seek active care with you.

It could be for a number of reasons, and many of them could be out of your control. But one easy, and extremely cost-effective way is to keep in regular contact with your patients using email marketing.

Connecting with your patients via email is an easy way to stay in touch and educate them in various ways.

There's so much you can email about to stay in touch.

  • Changes in and around your clinic
  • New practitioners you are working with
  • Recent research articles
  • News updates
  • Seasonal updates
  • Seasonal foods
  • Seasonal acupressure points

If you have not already, begin to compile an email list from every patient and prospective patients and begin sending them an email at least once per month.

Don’t forget to add some form of call-to-action to every email. For example, you could offer a free 15-minute stress reduction treatment, or a discounted visit.  The idea is to get your email recipients to respond to your call-to-action and schedule an appointment with you.

Qi Infusing Strategy #2 – Reactivate Inactive Patients

There is no easier patient to acquire than the one that has used your services in the past. Why?

Because you have already:

  • Invested time in getting to know them,
  • Spent time and money getting them  into your clinic,
  • Explained (and proven) what it is you do and how you can help them

Most patients don’t stop seeing you because they don’t like your treatments. The real reason they tend to  fall out-of-care is because life gets busy for them, and they have just simply forgot to keep up with their treatment.

Don’t let these kind of patients slip through your fingers!

Qi Infusing Strategy #3 – Hosting A Patient Appreciation Day

It’s nice to give back and show appreciation for your patients from time to time.

One way of celebrating your patients is by hosting a Patient Appreciation Day.

This is a special event designed to be fun and memorable for your patients.

Patient Appreciation Day’s serve four purposes:

  • They attract new patients
  • They reactivate inactive patients
  • They generate interest and excitement about acupuncture
  • They are a lot of fun!

Even if you are just starting your practice, a Patient Appreciation Day generates enthusiasm, promotes generosity, encourages community and helps plant the seeds for growing a successful practice well into the future. All this happens simply by asking your existing patients to invite friends and family to meet and greet you.

A Patient Appreciation Day is also a fantastic networking tool. It’s a great way to connect with other health care providers in your community. Invite doctors, massage therapists, naturopaths, chiropractors, herbalists and yoga instructors located in your area.

By expanding your community with other practitioners at your Patient Appreciation Day, you can double your fun, double your exposure, cut your costs and generate referral streams.
