Back in the day, a sugary treat was all you needed to make a good first impression on a potential referral source—and thus, bring in enough new patients to fill your schedule. Well, that’s not the case anymore. In today’s competitive healthcare landscape, you need a more strategic approach to marketing your services to physicians and other referrers.
So, save the donuts for a staff appreciation breakfast, and arm yourself with modern referral marketing best practices the next time you reach out to a colleague (or a patient, for that matter).

Think back to the scrappy, bootstrapped start-up era of your practice. If I had to guess, I’d bet those early days were infused with optimism, enthusiasm, and healthy dose of anxiety. But with a lot of hard work—and maybe a little luck—word spread about the quality of your patient care, and your budding clinic flourished into a strong, healthy business. Perhaps you even added another location or two—or more. And at that point, you probably realized that—as …
