Let’s start by asking what’s the most important goal when you initiate your chiropractic marketing online. Everyone should probably answer that the ultimate goal is to get new patients walking through the doors. Why else would you do it? When you follow a proven blueprint, then this goal should be readily attainable.

However, if you truly want to be successful with your chiropractic marketing online, then something much more important needs to happen. You need to become a reliable and visible chiropractic expert in your home town. This doesn’t mean haggling people on Facebook in your city.

You need to find new and better ways online to stand as a leader in the health field, empowering people to heal and reach their healthy potential. This means that your marketing isn’t about you, but about your future patients.

An important mentor of mine says that to have a booming business you must first move the free line. This doesn’t necessarily mean giving away a free consultation, it means getting into the habit of giving away a fortune in perceived value of your services to potential patients. When you give them information or insights that help them immediately in their life, you better believe that one day they’re going to pay you for more.

When you give them information and they use it and experience improvement, you have instant credibility in their eyes. An understanding of this concept is indispensable when you begin chiropractic marketing online. Even though it worked in the 80’s to get up in people’s faces and knock on their doors, this simply isn’t the case today. What you’re going for today is subtlety and naturalness.

All of us are geared toward instant gratification and want to see new patients this moment. You must keep in mind that not seeing new patients the very day that you start chiropractic marketing means nothing. Sometimes it takes a little time. When I went through this process it was subtle at first, a trickle that became a tidal wave of new patients coming through my doors thanks to social media marketing.

I consistently built a solid reputation online that was visible in all major search engines and social networks such as Google, Yahoo, MySpace, and Facebook. You name it, and people in my city found me everywhere online. When you’re consistent and knowledgeable of this method, you can literally be your own powerful PR person. There is truly a science to online chiropractic marketing success using Web 2.0.

It’s vital to remember that it’s ok to give away some of your best chiropractic information and health tips for free to potential patients. Don’t think that if you share your best strategies with these people that they’ll take the information and run. When the advice makes a difference in their lives, they’ll come knocking. The more you give, the more you get back.

Do yourself a big favor and make sure your online chiropractic marketing is a genuine extension of you, the person. Get to know the people that show interest in your practice and be natural. Direct people to your blogs and videos that have useful information to share with them. Don’t be surprised when they slowly begin to see how your knowledge can transform their life, and they come back to pay for further services.
