The Internet marketing venue is a very nice platform for chiropractors to be participating in in year 2011 and beyond because most chiropractors, I’d say but 95% of them aren’t taking any proactive steps to establish any type of an online presence or brand. Targeting your chiropractic campaign to your local area isn’t really anything new. But these days there is a lot more methods to get leads that very few people are aware of because technology is increasing so rapidly and traffic is not getting harder to get these days is actually getting easier to get so the people in the know can actually make more money now than they could during the robust economic times we had a few years ago. In other words right now for the people in the know, you could be making three times as much in a bad economy is you could in a thriving economy.If you are a chiropractor you have to understand that getting leads is easier today than it was a few years ago. When I see easier I don’t mean technically easier, I just mean that there are more options to do it but it does take someone relatively skilled and that has at least a pretty darn good pulse of the market to be able to do this for you. Because lead generation is a skill in and of itself just like being a chiropractor is. So the avenues available for us to get you leads like social networking, Google maps, Facebook ads, Google ad words and article marketing for example all existing can help your business get head of what is now.What makes all these newer forms of chiropractic marketing so effective is that the traffic is increasing much on many of these newer venues that the cost of advertising released or cost will be pushed way down because very few people in the chiropractic field know about them. For example I can get leads on Facebook for about $.05-$.07 each were a phonebook might cost me $1200 a month advertising just for a small spot. That’s a simple analogy but I could repeat that same analogy and about 7 to 10 different areas of Internet marketing. And while phonebooks and newspapers used to help a lot in the past, it’s good to be harder and harder to get customers to walk through the door of your chiropractic office in the next few years unless they find you on the Internet.There are some smart chiropractors out there taking advantage of chiropractic marketing that will probably be around a long time. Newspapers aren’t as common as it used to be, especially the newspapers that used to offer the daily classifieds. Many of the daily classifieds sections of the newspapers are now gone, and classifieds are only offered on the weekends and in certain small communities they are completely gone now and the reason for this is everyone’s migrating to the Internet to CNN, MSNBC and other news sites. So what is this mean to you as a local chiropractor? It just means you have to be a little more creative in your marketing in the open to using the Internet to get leads pure business.So as a local business how are you getting get leads? The first thing you need to do on your website is great landing page and that landing page has to look very attractive to your prospective client who is checking you out. Your primary objective is to try to get them on an e-mail list, and you’ll do this by offering them a big discount on their first visit. For example if you normally charge $50 for a visit, why not just try charging $20 for the first visit. This customer can end up being worth thousands of dollars to you and just by getting them in the door with a loss leader of $30 you have the potential to get a long-term client. Plus if these happy with your services he’s got a recommend you to others as well which could be worth even more money to you.So one of the chiropractic marketing tips that I wanna leave you with, is to get a very nice website that’s to the point and that is, like a resume of which are abilities are. You you want to do anything you can to increase credibility for yourself and your business. One of the things you can do is post pictures of yourself and your staff on your website so they arty know what you look like before they walked in the door. You also as I said before one offer a coupon if they put their name on an e-mail list. Also don’t forget to post success stories of some your patients that that a party gotten relief from your treatments and good results. There are more things you could do business, but I just wanted to touch on a few of the main things.
