Physical Therapy Marketing Book: “You Cannot Grow A Clinic Without Lead Generation”

This is an excerpt from Chapter 5 of my new, Amazon No.1 Best Selling Marketing book for Physical Therapists, “New Patient Accelerator Method: How I Scaled A Four Location, $1,000,000 + Cash Pay Clinic – In A Place Where Health Care Is Free (…And, In One Of The Poorest Parts Of The Country)

“For all the reasons mentioned in chapter 1, you cannot grow a business without predictable lead generation. And you cannot make lead generation work without a follow-up system that takes your potential patient on a journey that leads to him to making a decision to buy from you. Lead generation marketing is about attracting qualified leads. It is not about asking people to book now. It is about starting a relationship with someone who has a problem you can solve, and it’s about educating them on how you can help them solve their problem.

The follow-up system is about guiding the potential patient along a series of steps so that they become ready to buy. Remember, we are marketing to the people in Group 2, those we identified in chapter 1; those who need what you do, but are just not quite ready to buy from you (yet!). This is the target market with the overwhelming majority, and focusing on this group is the only chance you have of being successful with your marketing. For that reason and more, you need a follow-up system.

The follow-up system bridges the gap between what they know now and what they need to know to confidently book and pay for your services.”

Physical Therapy Marketing Book: “Marketing ‘Won’t Work In My Town”

This is an excerpt from Chapter 1 of my new, Amazon No.1 Best Selling Marketing book for Physical Therapists, “New Patient Accelerator Method: How I Scaled A Four Location, $1,000,000 + Cash Pay Clinic – In A Place Where Health Care Is Free (…And, In One Of The Poorest Parts Of The Country)

“Here’s the worst bit about a lack of early marketing success: the business owner, still scared from the loss and disappointment of the failed marketing campaign, now concludes that “marketing doesn’t work in my town” or that “marketing doesn’t work for physical therapy clinics”. He is convinced that the only way to grow is to do what everyone else does – market to doctors or wait for referrals from past patients.

With that way of thinking the business owner is now sentenced to a lifetime of perpetual struggle doing what everyone else does, and getting what everyone else gets – a practice struggling to make a profit.

I appreciate that some people are addicted to that struggle – but I assure you, it does not have to be that way. And, if any of that sounds familiar then you are not alone, as this is pretty much the same mistake that I made, and it is how my first two years trying to market my clinic directly to the public looked.

Thankfully though I discovered that marketing does work in my town and it does work for physical therapy clinics – I just needed to change what I was doing and how I was doing it. I needed to change the strategy.

I needed to accept that I couldn’t help anybody and everybody in pain and I needed to get clear on “who” it was I wanted to talk to (my target market). Once I knew that, it made it much easier to change the message in my ad.

I realized that words are powerful, and much like going on a first date, if I talked more about me (than her), I wouldn’t get a second one. The same is true with marketing. The ads have to talk more about them than you and you have to give them a reason to get in touch with you that is more exciting and less risky than the “call now to book an appointment” phrase that was the ruin of nearly every ad I ever ran.”

Marketing Book For Physical Therapists: “How I Became The Recognized, Trusted, Authority Figure In My Town!”

This is an excerpt from Chapter 2 of my new, Amazon No.1 Best Selling Marketing book for Physical Therapists, “New Patient Accelerator Method: How I Scaled A Four Location, $1,000,000 + Cash Pay Clinic – In A Place Where Health Care Is Free (…And, In One Of The Poorest Parts Of The Country)

“The impact that this marketing strategy has had upon my life has reached well beyond just a better, more financially solid business. Not long after I started this type of marketing, I was approached by two local newspapers who asked me to be a weekly health expert in their publication.

Education based marketing is all about giving value and providing people with helpful information about how to make good decisions about their health. And so, when I was writing the ads to promote my clinic, the editors of the local newspapers liked what they saw. The style of the ads (which I’ll teach you in chapter 8, “The Attraction System”), caught the attention of the editors, and two of them approached me and asked me to write weekly newspaper columns on the topic of health.

Ever since then I’ve written weekly newspaper columns in two of the big newspapers in my area (*I have provided an example of these newspaper columns in your resource pack that accompanies this book – get them at www.paulgough.com/resource). This provided, and still provides, free awareness of my clinic, and it also gave me the added bonus of positioning myself as the trusted authority – almost celebrity – healthcare expert in the North East. Imagine how easy it is to attract patients and raise your rates when you have this going on.

That awareness did this for me, and it can do the same for you.”

Physical Therapy Marketing Book: “Generalists Go Broke – Specialists Get Rich!”

 

This is an excerpt from Chapter 6 of my new, Amazon No.1 Best Selling Marketing book for Physical Therapists, “New Patient Accelerator Method: How I Scaled A Four Location, $1,000,000 + Cash Pay Clinic – In A Place Where Health Care Is Free (…And, In One Of The Poorest Parts Of The Country)

“One of the reasons that physical therapists struggle to charge higher prices than say, personal trainers, (or even hairdressers in some instances), is because we graduate as generalists. We have been taught to do a “little bit of everything”, and as a result, never really specialize in anything. And that is a problem because specialists are who people seek and ultimately, spend the most money with. Generalists try to help everyone – and get tired and go broke.

Specialists narrow down to a specific target market, they charge more money to provide that specialist service, and as a result, they get rich! What do you want to spend your career doing?

When you get clear on your ideal patient you start the process of becoming a specialist, and because you can start to talk about their specific problems, in the eyes of that perfect patient you are becoming “everything” (rather than a little bit of something to everyone).

At first, it might seem counter-intuitive that you are going to choose to ignore some people and instead focus on a small pocket of people, but what needs to be understood is that if people can’t find themselves in the ad or the marketing message you are putting out, they will ignore it. And that’s a problem because without getting their attention they are not going to take action, and if they don’t take action they will not come and see you.

Sure, there might be 5000 people seeing your ad on Facebook, but if it isn’t talking to someone with a specific problem, and isn’t showing how you can solve it, then no one is noticing it.”
