Face It – Cookie Cutter Marketing Just Doesn’t Work
We recognize that each Practitioner and their Private Practice Business are absolutely unique. Where your practice is located (city vs country), the kind of business services you have (face to face vs on line services) your personality type (introvert vs extrovert), past experiences (ie. public speaking) and your specific budget are only a few of the reasons why cookie cutter marketing is simply a waste of your money and your time! Above all, the Mental Health and Wellness industry have very specific compliance regulations regarding how we as practitioners market our private practice business.
One of the most self-defeating habits in business is to jump ahead to marketing without first having a solid business foundation in place. If you have not yet confidently completed your business plan (as spelled out in our Roadmap), we champion you to complete that pivotal piece prior to graduating to marketing.
Once commencing with marketing, most practitioners have been around the block enough to have a general sense of “what” to do to start our marketing efforts. We put out some fliers, offer specials and hope it will work out. Sooner or later we realize, it just isn’t working. Where we find practitioner efforts at marketing can get derailed isn’t as much in the “what” to do, but rather in underestimating the importance of the “how” to do it or where to best put their time or energy.
For these reasons, we strongly encourage you to learn more about how “custom” marketing can help you identify your best marketing ideas and then learn the “how” of making those tools be effective. You don’t have to be a marketing maven to learn the basics of marketing and apply it. It is great to know that once you learn these marketing basics, that skill will come in handy in your business future. Once you have a solid business foundation, you’ll be able to tackle marketing your private practice like a pro, while still staying authentic to YOU!
