Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Pediatric Behavioral and Developmental Medicine Practice

It's becoming more and more difficult for pediatric behavioral and developmental medicine practices to rise above the clamor of the marketplace. Innovative marketing strategies may be your best bet for out-promoting -- and outperforming -- the competition.

We see marketing as the great equalizer, a business discipline capable of dramatically increasing a small company's footprint in the marketplace.

Simplistic promotional techniques can't penetrate the clutter of the current marketplace. Effective marketing now means translating market learnings into techniques and tactics that are relevant to your business.

Generating Buzz

Never underestimate the value of good buzz with consumers. There are multiple ways owners can tout the benefits of their product offerings, but the most effective promotions are personal recommendations or word of mouth advertising. For a pediatric behavioral and developmental medicine practice, meaningful brand conversations have the ability to transform the impact of your marketing efforts. The process begins with developing communication vehicles and mechanisms that invite discussion. With minimal effort, you can instigate conversations through social media and other communication vehicles favored by today's consumers.

Coupons

Think you know all there is to know about coupling? Maybe not, at least when it comes to using coupons for pediatric behavioral and developmental medicine practice marketing. Percentage discounts, volume discounts, and bundling offers are standard coupon fare. In a typical coupon scenario, pediatric behavioral and developmental medicine practice operations leverage couponing to entice first-time customers to make initial contact with the brand. Coupled with other marketing techniques, a steady stream of legitimate coupon promotions can incentivize periodic customers to increase the frequency of purchases from your company.

Promotional Calendars

Sloppy marketing programs have no place in growing pediatric behavioral and developmental medicine practices. A strategy chocked full of time-sensitive ad placements and other tactics can devolve into a tangled mess of overlapping deliverables unless it is coordinated in a promotional calendar. Good calendars include not only tactical deadlines, but also schedules for the inputs (e.g. staff assets, vendors, etc.) that are required to execute strategic objectives. Many list vendors appreciate promotional calendars because they are useful for timing the delivery of the resources your business needs to meet strategic objectives.
