We've all had the patient with a neck, back or leg pain who came in after trying physical therapy, prescriptions or even surgery. After a brief conversation, you discover nothing has worked to completely alleviate the pain. Now, the only reason she is here is because her primary care physician finally asked, “What do you think about chiropractic care?”
The elevator speech may be one of the most important, yet often overlooked tools we have when we enter into the chiropractic field. Whether you're graduating and starting a practice, starting into practice with an existing office, or beginning to look for job opportunities, the right elevator speech will give you the competitive edge you need to succeed. So what should YOUR elevator speech include?
Whether your practice is new, recently relocated or has been around for a while, it's important to have a network of professional resources. You can then rely on these relationships to gain information, share opinions and build referral networks.
Once you've identified your staffing needs and developed appropriate job descriptions, it's time to begin the search to find a qualified individual to fill the position. Many chiropractors decide to hire patients because they have first-hand experience and a knowledge base of the chiropractic profession. Or you may also choose to hire someone who doesn't have much knowledge of chiropractic, but who has the right attitude, open-mindedness and potential.
It is the most common cocktail party question asked, “What do you do?” The answer is simple, right? I am a chiropractor should be enough, but that does not tell the whole story. People make assumptions that they understand what a chiropractor does, which is worth its own conversation, but how you describe your practice is how you differentiate yourself from other practices.
Even if you're not comfortable with public speaking, you can start small to become more confident. And when you're ready, you can find resources to help you strengthen your presentation skills.
Special events are an excellent way to build your practice because they bring prospective patients in direct contact with you and your office. Events give you the opportunity to deliver your marketing messages one on one and start developing relationships with potential patients.
When someone types in your name or your practice name into Google, do you know what shows up at or very near the top? Bet you didn't guess your LinkedIn profile. This is not surprising because of the general tendency to lump LinkedIn with other social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter, but it is different. A personal LinkedIn page and a practice page can help you connect with others. It's also an opportunity to showcase your areas of expertise and knowledge.
One of the best ways to network is by becoming involved in your community. So, where do you start? First, establish a reputation as a trustworthy member of the community. Your reputation is important for many reasons, including the fact that people prefer to work with companies and individuals they can trust. They're more likely to trust someone they know - someone from their own community.
Whether you are starting you practice or looking to grow it, networking is a key tactic for success. That's a no brainer, right? But in reality, many people don't maximize the opportunities for networking within their community. Many believe it is enough to occasionally attend a local chamber of commerce luncheon or be listed in the membership directory.
