7 strategies that helped medical aesthetics practices have their best year ever [part 1 of 2]

How did certain medical aesthetics practices manage to have their best year ever? Here are the strategies that helped propel them to new heights, & how you can do the same.

  1. Publish posts on the platforms that your customers use, & upload pictures & videos to keep your customers informed.

Google reports that “businesses with photos receive 42% more requests for driving directions to their location from users on Google, and 35% more clicks to their websites than businesses that don’t have photos.” One study determined that “businesses with more than 100 images on Google business profile get 520% more calls, 2,717% more direction requests, and 1,065% more website clicks than the average business.” Post consistently to your Google business profile.

Additionally, post regularly to the social media accounts that your customers use. For example, in the medical aesthetics industry, businesses benefit from posting to Instagram, Facebook & their Google business profile.

  1. Check any pending edits on your Google business profile.

Anyone, including your competitors, can suggest an edit to your Google business profile. Therefore, if someone wants to say that you are closed on Wednesdays & do not offer a particular service, they may be able to submit an edit.

  1. Include a business description & list your services & products in your Google business profile.

Write a description of your business. Consider addressing the following questions in the description:

What are the primary benefits of working with your business?
What important values or principles do you stand for?
How long have you been in business?
What services do you provide?
What transformation do your services & products provide?
If applicable, what products do you offer?
What are the benefits of those products?
If applicable, how do you give back to others?

  1. Respond to reviews.

If someone leaves you a positive review, thank them for their positive feedback. If someone leaves a review that is less than positive, respond to them by encouraging them to contact your business to resolve the issue.

  1. Include a review spotlight in your emails

Showcase your customers’ positive feedback & reviews in your emails. For example, some of my clients include a positive review that their client provided internally or one that the person posted on Google, Facebook, or Yelp. You can spotlight emails & text messages that clients have sent you. Remove the client’s name for privacy reasons. Positive reviews help build trust.

  1. Include a sense of urgency in the emails & Instagram stories that are promoting a limited-time offer.

Scarcity can encourage people to take action. Nordstrom, Blue Mercury, British Airways & other companies have used countdown timers in their emails to create urgency regarding a promotion. You can also publish countdown timers in your Instagram stories. Mentioning words such as “7 days left to claim this special” is a way to incorporate scarcity.

  1. Include a refer-a-friend form in your emails.

For example, my clients added a refer a friend form to the automated emails that their patients receive before & after their appointment. If 10 people have used the form to refer friends to the practice in the last few months then that is 10 more potential clients the business may acquire without much effort on the business side.
