Top 2 Things to Consider for Your Chiropractic Marketing

You can promote your chiropractic business in various ways. One of the marketing channels that you should use to promote your chiropractic business is the internet. To have a successful internet chiropractic marketing campaign, please consider the following things:

Always consider PPC or Pay Per Click Advertising.

PPC is an internet advertising method developed by Google. By attaching your advertisement a certain term, Google will present your ad when a person searches for that term or keyword. When a person searches for that term or key word, the search results will present your ad on a website. If the person clicks the ad, that’s when a fee is generated for the website owner. Payment are only made for every click so if your advertisement had zero clicks, it means zero marketing expenses on your part. This set up ensures that both party benefits from PPC advertising.

Email marketing should be an option too.

Email marketing is the internet version of direct marketing. It is important for you to consider email marketing since it is a powerful tool to promote your chiropractic business. Compared with direct marketing, you can reach more target customers since you can sent out millions of emails instantly. It is also cheaper than direct marketing since all you need is a computer and an internet connection. The only downside of this marketing strategy is that your email blast might be casted as spam or unwanted email by email users.

Keep in mind the discussed information above. You can use them as options to market your chiropractic practice in the future.

Outbound or Inbound Marketing – Which Is Right for Your Business?

With mostly all businesses using the internet and social media for marketing it is becoming increasingly more difficult to stand out from the competition. With search engines changing their algorithms so often, new social media sites launching, it’s difficult to stay ahead of it all. In short, internet marketing is no longer the easiest or quickest way and has its own set of pitfalls to understand before diving into it. Under these circumstances, the major question in the minds of internet marketers today is which will provide my business with the highest return on investment – outbound or inbound? And the answer to this question basically lies in understanding what each means, their differences and scope.

Understanding inbound and outbound marketing
Outbound marketing is traditional marketing, where businesses use various means to target their customers. These may include direct mail, organizing events, conferences, seminars, advertising, trade shows and making cold calls.

Inbound marketing, on the other hand, is where the business uses ways, means and techniques to increase the page rankings of their website – generally using the internet. This could be done through building a variety of links, which lead back to their website, instead of actively pursuing customers and other target audiences.

Scope of each type of marketing
According to a survey conducted, it was found that nearly 44 percent of the people did not open direct mail sent via the post office. Further, nearly 86 percent of the population did not sit through television ads/commercials. On the other hand, inbound marketing generated more organic traffic to the website while also keeping costs down. Keeping these facts in mind, it can be easily deciphered that outbound marketing has a lesser scope of being effective than inbound marketing. Additionally, the scope of outbound marketing is further restricted because it does not believe in creating and nurturing a direct contact with the customer. Further, traditional outbound marketing usually costs more and requires a higher investment than inbound marketing.

Which is the better of the two?
Given the vast differences between the two types of marketing, the question regarding which is more suitable for your business is of great concern when choosing where best to spending marketing dollars that generate revenue. However, it is not possible to truly state one as being better than the other. This is largely because marketing is an ongoing aspect of a business, and ideally businesses should base their decision on their situations, strategies, budget, current marketing trends and several other factors.

Businesses should fully understand their own business processes and the scope of their business before deciding which strategy to adopt and implement. This should be supplemented with details regarding the target audience in question, budgetary constraints and time limits as well as the overall goals of the business. However, despite this situation, it is clearly obvious that inbound marketing is definitely a trend that is here to stay for quite some time. However, these rules need to be changed and refined ongoing depending on the situation. With the rules regarding how you indulge in inbound marketing becoming more specific, it is important to adhere to it for maximum impact.

Email Marketing – Generating High Quality Leads

Email marketing is a type of marketing discipline, called direct marketing that uses email to communicate any form of advertisements or money-making messages directly to an audience without the use of intervening media. The purpose of email marketing is to focus on driving consumers to purchase your product which can be attributed to a specific call to action such as calling your phone number, visiting your website or reading your article. It is one of the biggest essentials in generating profits for your online business if you do it right. Here are some things to remember that may help:

  1. People who buy products on the Internet generally base their decisions on emotion. What every good Internet marketer knows is that you want to break all the barriers first, all those walls between you and the buyer and come in under the radar. You want to come in as a friend, extend a helping hand and help them get what they are looking for.
  2. Give more content and more information – in your email or in your autoresponder. Your purpose is to give people what they want before they got into your webpage.
  3. When you convey your information, write it in a friendly way and not in a business standpoint of view. Write it in a friendly tone as if you are having a conversation with someone to get your reader interested, because in this day and age where people typically get about a hundred messages a day, you would not want your message to go directly to the junk folder or spam folder.
  4. Don’t sell them directly into your business on your first email, particularly if they just opted in. Give them free content, free information so they’ll keep coming back to your website until you somehow build a friendly relationship with your readers or followers, if you may. People are interested in results and you want to relate in such a way that they can think about those results happening to them too. That’s the real deal. People want those same results they read about and if you can convey it to them like that, they will start looking at things differently.
  5. If you are just starting with email marketing, here are a few tips. Search out people who you want to emulate – people who are good at what you are trying to get good at, which is email marketing. Subscribe to their list and save every email you get from them. Study their style, analyze how they write their subject lines and letters, how they get people to take the action and you’ll be surprised how much information you could get out of other people’s stuff. They don’t necessarily have to be a part of your market. Just look at how they structure their emails because that’s what you’re really interested in. So the next time you want to write an email or an ad campaign and you’re really not sure or don’t have an idea what to do, just open up those emails that you saved, look at the structure and how they lead into things and you’ll get a bunch of information that you can follow or use as a guide.

Death of Traditional Autoship in Network Marketing Companies

Death of Traditional Autoship in Network Marketing Companies If you have been operating a network marketing business for more than 3 months, I do not have to tell you that there is a thing called autoship.

Most traditional network marketing companies require their distributors to sign up for it. This means that in order for you to be in a position to earn money marketing that company’s products, the distributor must purchase a set minimum dollar amount of the company’s products each month.

In return for participating in autoship, you usually gain some advantage. It may be reduced pricing on the products that you buy. Network marketing is not the only business model that uses automatic shipping or automatic purchasing of products. Any recurring bill is a form of autoship. Cellular service, auto insurance or any other product or service you regularly receive and pay for can be considered autoship.

It is a double edged sword within the network marketing framework. The theory is that you are purchasing products that you are getting good value from. However, in some cases you end up paying a very high price for something that you could get for a much lower price. For instance, MonaVie requires their distributor to purchase a quantity of bottles of juice that retail for about $40.00 but depending on how much you buy, the price could drop. However even with the volume discounts, Men’s Health did a study of Mona Vie and found that their juice did not provide any more nutritional value than a bottle of Welch’s grape juice. Hardly a good value.

How does all of this shape up for a person running a network marketing company? In essence their challenge is to create enough cash flow to break even on any start up costs and cover their monthly expenses which would include their required monthly product purchase. This can easily extend into hundreds of dollars each and every month before any income is realized. There are new companies cropping up whose business model does not eliminate autoship, but it structures the compensation in a way that allows what amounts to the same thing, to be paid from earned income.

One such company is call MPB Today. A simplified explanation of their compensation and autoship model is such that you are required to make 2 sales and help each of them make two sales. At that point you would cycle. What happens then is you receive $500.00. This is $125.00 from each person on your second line. The company will then pay you $300.00 and take $200.00 toward the purchase of your next product. If you do not cycle, you are not required to make a purchase to stay in the game.

There is no pain involved with this. You will not find yourself going into debt, or using your savings to maintain your business autoship.

Another company that is approaching autoship from a different direction is Infinity Downline. This company offers access to a library of audio and video training resources for popular software titles as well as general network marketing. There is a traditional monthly product purchase involved but it is only $25.00 and the business owner breaks even on their first sale because there are no admin fees ever. All sales are paid directly to the business owner by the consumer. This puts you in profit by your third sale. This is because there is a 2 up feature wherein the system automatically pays your 2nd and 4th sales to your sponsor. All subsequent sales are paid directly from consumer to sponsor.

As more people become disillusioned with autoship, which is a major reason why the average network marketer only lasts about 65 days. Two monthly recurring orders without any monthly income signals that it is time to quit.

The market place always has a strong influence of the direction of business. As more people tune in to network marketing only to find that they do not like having an additional monthly expense in addition to the other costs of doing business, more companies like these will begin popping up.

I believe this is signaling the death of traditional autoship in network marketing companies.

Of course the second most obvious reason for failure in the industry is lack of marketing skills. Anyone involved or considering getting involved in this industry should seek marketing training first then decide on a company or product. After all, network marketing is a marketing business and friends and family will not be enough to support your business.
