Get Your Money Questions Answered at Vision Expo West 2019

Posted by Madhu Singh on Tue, Sep 03, 2019 @ 09:09 AM

As doctors, you're usually rewarded for having the answers. When you feel like you don't know enough about a topic, you might turn to continuing education courses at Vision Expo West and other tradeshows.

However, when we looked at the CE courses offered at VEW 2019, there was only one or two courses on billing, coding, and managing the profits of your practice. Even though many ODs aren't sure where to start when it comes to optimizing their claim filing or managing cashflow for the practice.

Would you believe us if we told you that we'll give you $25 at our booth MS9035 for NOT knowing the answer to a question? Keep reading to find out more.

Why Relationship Marketing Will Change Your Optometry Practice

Posted by Madhu Singh on Tue, Mar 26, 2019 @ 14:03 PM

Making sure that you understand the needs, desires, and motivators of loyal patients can help you boost retention in your optical practice. As little as 5% increase in customer retention could lead to over 25% more company revenue (Reichheld, 2000). That's why we want you to focus on your existing patients before investing money into outbound marketing campaigns.

Developing a strong foundation with your patients starts with delivering excellent patient care, but can be nurtured though rewards, feedback loops, and patient-centric content. We'll show you how to delight your customers and dabble in relationship marketing in your optometry practice below.

Eyecare Practice Resources: A Simple Guide for Your First Trunk Show

Posted by Janelle Pauli on Tue, Mar 19, 2019 @ 13:03 PM

Every eyecare practice is looking for ways to promote their practice and stand out from the competition. Holding a trunk show is one creative way to help reach new goals in your practice. But be wary, a successful event is going to require a lot of planning and effort. It's not as simple as slapping up a flyer in your practice in hopes that will draw enough attention to the event.

Labeling your event as a trunk show might not be the best way to resonate with your client base either. Think about a theme for your event and a creative title that might lure in attendees. Something like, Fall Eyewear Fashion Show and Sale is likely going to catch more attention than an event called, Dr. Smith's Trunk Show.

There is a lot to think about when planning any event. And, if you aren't a seasoned event planner, it can be easy to overlook some details. While there isn't a tried and true formula for success, we've got some steps for you to take to ensure trunk show success at your next event.
