We’re sharing our 12 favorite ideas to celebrate 12 days of Healthie, and gear us up for the holidays!
Private Practice Tip #12: Reward successful client behaviors and not just accomplishments. If your client tracks their metrics every day for a week, reinforce that behavior! And not only milestone achievements. See more on rewards here!
Private Practice Tip #11: Create monthly packages to give your clients the option to sign up for a month at a time rather than individual sessions. This will keep your clients committed, strengthen relationships, and won’t tie price to an individual session. This means cancelations or no-show will not affect the price they pay. Check out our example packages!
Private Practice Tip #10: Use social media to market your practice! Whether you have a Twitter account, a Pinterest page, or are snapping photos for your Instagram, posting regularly to share your expertise will give new clients all the more reason to seek out your services! Looking to get started, check out our blog post!
Private Practice Tip #9: Charge a small fee such as $25 for a short assessment phone call. An affordable call will give your new client a taste of your services yet is just enough to only draw in clients who are serious about working with you. See more strategies like this one here!
Private Practice Tip #8: Looking for a new way to connect with clients? Initiate a weekly newsletter this holiday season! This is a great place to advertise upcoming events you’re hosting, new services you’re offering, or even just fun holiday health tips! See more on newsletters with out blog post!
Private Practice Tip #7: Utilize technology for scheduling! Using an online scheduler makes it easy for clients to book on their own and receive automatic appointment reminders. This automation will save you time, enhance the clients experience and cut down on cancellations and no-shows! See more on automation here!
Private Practice Tip #6: Initiate a cancelation policy. Set down rules for your practice.
