Just imagine patients flocking to your office for elective procedures. What attracts them?
Appearance is an emotional issue — for everyone, from children who need braces to adults who choose a smile makeover, dental implants or cosmetic surgery. For baby boomers, their parents and children, appearance means social approval, career advancement, romance and self-esteem — and they pursue it with all their considerable wealth. What motivates people to pursue these procedures? PBHS conducted interviews, and documented countless testimonials to determine the answers. We found that most dental and medical marketing materials are less than successful because they overlook a major psychological truth — you need to touch people where they live. Your community will respond enthusiastically when you reach out to them. PBHS demographic marketing appeals to emotional triggers — building interest through true-life accounts of struggle, real testimonials, engaging headlines and winning visuals.
PBHS makes conducting a direct mail campaign easy. Based on the population of your surrounding area, you may choose the number of mailers sent out on a quarterly basis (minimum 3000). Recipients are selected by demographic constraints, including age and household income. PBHS manages all fulfillment for each quarterly campaign. You may choose the option of creating a powerful marketing mix by supporting the quarterly mail campaign with media such as magazine, newspaper, television and radio advertisements. The theme of each advertisement is consistent with its respective mailer.
A strategic media mix dramatically increases awareness of your services within the communities you wish to target. A powerful strategy starts with a plan customized to your area and specialty. PBHS evaluates your market potential, identifies opportunities and supports recommendations for cost-effective and efficient media. Demographic marketing will strategically advance the referral marketing goals of new and established practices in all specialties of dentistry and medicine — building your bottom line and increasing patient satisfaction.
With advertisement in recommended magazines or newspapers, you can be sure your message will be seen not just once, but many times by multiple readers. Your message appears where your prospective clients look for it — next to articles about appearance, health, lifestyle, luxury, and senior living. People often read issues several times at leisure, and keep them around for reference — so they have your practice name and number when they’re ready to act. You may even be placed in the enviable position of expert who is quoted or featured in related stories.
PBHS recommends a media mix that delivers considerable value. You can easily target desired demographics and psychographics such as gender, education, income and interests. Radio reaches 75% of consumers every day and helps your TV message work harder. In studies comparing recall, a radio/TV mix delivered superior results to TV alone every time — raising message recall from 35% to 48% in the direct-to-consumer category. PBHS TV and radio spots share consistent themes for maximum effectiveness.
As a doctor, you ensure high quality patient care. This gives meaning and purpose to your practice. As an entrepreneur, you judge success by using return on investment (ROI) — as measured by statistical growth in your patient base and number of procedures performed.
