Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Nutrition Physician Practice

You're heavily invested in the success of your nutritionist practice and failure isn't an option. That means you'll also need to invest yourself in the strategies and techniques it takes to effectively market your brand in the marketplace.

A high-quality marketing plan connects your company to your customers. Without it, you'll quickly find your nutritionist practice cut off from the marketplace.

In a growth-oriented business, marketing has to be seen as a core business activity. On the upside, great marketing is a real possibility for a nutritionist practice willing to adapt its strategy to the demands of the marketplace.

Loss Leaders

Like many businesses, nutritionist practices understand that more customers will walk through the door if a few products are priced at less than full retail value. Moreover, a loss leader marketing strategy can compensate for dead periods when customers tend to making purchases. A classic mistake of loss leader marketing is to create pricing without researching the competition. In a worse case scenario, you could be counting on pricing that is higher than your competitors. For the majority of nutritionist practices, this approach is most advantageous when it is coupled with a promotion for complementary products or services that are offered at full pricing. With adequate preparation, a loss leader promotion can be publicized through all of your company's marketing channels, including the company website.

Market Segmentation

Given the current competitive landscape, you can't successfully promote a nutritionist practice to the entire marketplace. Market segmentation has been around for decades and it has enabled many smaller companies to dominate parts of the market, even when they face competition from larger firms.

Consumer and B2B lead list providers specialize in helping businesses segment diverse markets. By sorting and filtering current databases, your list vendor provides lists containing the names and contact information of likely buyers that fall within the parameters of your nutritionist practice marketing strategy.

Industry Resources

Lone rangers don't survive long in a nutritionist practice. Most leaders are oblivious to the fact that the marketplace shows no favoritism - for every marketing challenge your business faces, there are hundreds of other businesses and leaders struggling to solve the same problem. Trade associations, business networks, and other venues usually offer resources to help you improve your marketing skills. If possible, establish a mentoring relationship with an experienced industry veteran.
