How to “read” the best business books in 10 minutes…

November 26th, 2008

Today: How you can “read” the best business books in just 10 minutes! But first:
**************************************************
My family and I want to extend to you my warmest and most sincere Thanksgiving wishes! I really do appreciate the fact that you are a subscriber to this Dental Insiders Alliance E-Alert Letter. Here’s to finishing this year strong and gearing up for a GREAT 2009!
**************************************************

John D. Rockefeller once said:
“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.”

Yes, as you adopt new practices and try to turn them into habits, the most difficult part is abandoning the old habits that got you where you are now.

I’ve recently found an extraordinary resource for you that SHORTCUTS the process of reading and absorbing the content of the world’s best business books. Don’t have the time it takes to plow through “The E-Myth”, or “Good To Great”, etc? Well, now there’s an answer, and it’s not just an “executive summary”…it’s more.

Introducing BREVITY Small Business, developed by my friend Rick Raddatz. Here’s the link, including a ~free sample~:

Rick has solved three problems with Brevity. First, his concise, to-the-point summaries of the world’s best business books save you hours of time. Second, he goes one step further…he applies big business concepts to SMALL business (aka YOU). Third, he gives you actionable steps to take for explosive breakthroughs and rapid growth.

 In my opinion this is a no-brainer. Brevity has just recently gotten started. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to enjoy the best of the best business books in a fraction of the time! All my best,
Chris
PS: No, this won’t replace solid dental practice coaching. But remember that many of the best breakthroughs are found from OUTSIDE the profession of dentistry. In fact, I rarely find anyone outside dentistry looking IN dentistry to help them build their businesses!

The money is in the…and the…

November 19th, 2008

What is THE most valuable asset in your practice?Is it your equipment? Your employees? Your facility?Nope.Without question, the single most valuable asset in your practice, and EVERY business, is your LIST.

Your patient list, or client/customer list, that is. There is nothing that even comes close. Your list is the source of your appointments, your income, and hopefully your future business. Soooooo…

The money is in the LIST…and the…

FOLLOW UP!

You see, your list does you no good unless you care for it…by following up with your patients on a regular basis.

You must communicate with your patient list routinely to establish and maintain a lasting relationship with them. From that comes more business, and if you do the right things…

MORE REFERRALS!!

Last Wednesday I hosted a webinar with referral marketing expert David Frey, author of The Small Business Marketing Bible. He revealed numerous KILLER strategies for effectively communicating and following up with your patients. Plus, he shared several easy techniques for multiplying your referrals that you get from patients AND non-patients!

More importantly, David unveiled the SYSTEM for getting all this done without putting an enormous strain on you, your team, or your wallet. The KEY to success in the communications game is to make it EASY and INEXPENSIVE. That’s what we covered on the webinar.

You MUST go see this webinar if you haven’t already. If you’ve seen it, you should watch it again, and have your TEAM watch it too.

Then, just do what it says in the webinar. It’s that simple.

Here’s the link:

Don’t wait…go there now…and uncover the VALUE of your LIST!

WOW…last night’s webinar was awesome!

November 13th, 2008

I’ve gotta tell you, if you missed last night’s webinar
with my guest David Frey, you really missed one of the
BEST presentations on maximizing referrals I’ve ever seen
or been a part of.

If you missed it, you still have one more chance to see it!
Details below.

We had a HUGE turnout, and just about everyone STAYED ON
until the very end…that’s VERY rare in the webinar world.

If you registered and attended the webinar, you will have
unlimited viewing privileges at a private webpage that I’m
working on right now.  I’ll let you know when it’s ready.

If you didn’t register, or you registered and were not
able to make it at the scheduled time, I will post the
entire webinar on a public webpage for a limited time.
Once again, I’ll send out a message when it’s ready too.

David went into great detail as he revealed several
KILLER referral strategies.  He also outlined his 5
key elements of success, and the best ways to AUTOMATE
the entire process so it actually GETS DONE.

Referrals are not only generated from patients.   They
can come from NON-patients as well.  David shared a
few methods of acquiring tons of referrals from people
whom you may not even know…yet.

Using these referral generating techniques and systems,
you actually reduce your need for external marketing…
not that I recommend you stop marketing.  But it’ll really
let you LEVERAGE your marketing expenses, and the power
of your patient base.

So, be on the lookout for the links to the new webpage
so you can view the webinar in its entirety.  Have a
great one.

All my best,
Chris

Whoopi Goldberg on Oral Health

October 29th, 2008

Whoopi Goldberg discusses the importances of maintaining oral health and preventing periodontal disease.

OK, OK, Here’s The Postcard!

October 14th, 2008

Due to overwhelming demand, I decided to go ahead and post my “Dr. Bowman’s Economic Stimulus Package 2″ postcard here.  Thanks a ton to those dentists who forwarded my previous message to at least 2 other docs!  For you only, I’m including a thorough review of the rationale behind every detail in this promotion.  This will come in handy for future promotions as well!

If you didn’t forward yet, all I’m asking is that you spread the word about this blog!  Just let them know that there’s a ton of great practice building info right here at www.DentalInsiders.com/blog!  When you do, COPY ME on the referral, and I’ll send you the extra insights referenced above as well!

With no further adieu, here’s the postcard:

Postcard

That’s the front.  Now, here’s the ad copy written on the back:

It’s time to act “Presidential”!

October 13th, 2008

It’s time to act “Presidential”!  Yes, that’s right…YOU!  It’s time for you to step up and LEAD your practice through this wacky, emotionally driven whipsaw that has become “the economy” in recent weeks.

Not to say that you should be acting like either of the American Presidential candidates.  I’ll stay away from commenting on that.  But during these times of frustration, confusion, and outright panic among the masses, those who take command and exert a calming influence over their “followers” will emerge least damaged by the turbulence.

By the way, your “followers” include your dental team AND your patients!  Don’t forget the influence you have to bring positive outcomes in your patients’ lives too, even now.

So, how?  How do you act “Presidential”?  Well, some aspects of the answer are tangible, and some intangible.  I’ve already mentioned perhaps the most important element of Presidential leadership: CALM GUIDANCE through crisis.

People want reassurance these days.  They want to know that “everything’s going to be OK”.  You may be surprised to know that, as their dentist, you can deliver that message and stimulate new business to boot!

Next, reveal your PLAN to make things better in YOUR world…aka your practice.  When you become a positive influence for your patients, they will be drawn to you.

Believe it or not, many of your patients may be MORE likely to complete dentistry now than before!  They just need a NUDGE, in the form of an irresistible OFFER.  And, if you tie that offer to today’s tumultuous times, your response rate will dramatically improve.

Your patients are looking for economic “stimulus” right now.  Give it to them!  I recently used SendOutCards to send my patients my “Dr. Bowman’s Economic Stimulus Package 2″ promotion!  It was a HUGE success, bringing in a 12:1 return and counting!  The best part is I created it within one hour, the cards went out the next day, and results started coming in within 3 days.

The ROI was strong for 2 reasons.  First, the cost was LOW, because I used SendOutCards.  Second, the dentistry generated by the offer was high production.

If you’d like to learn more about SendOutCards or start using this great system right away, go here:
www.SendOutCards.com/fordentists .
Every dentist that joins SOC through my referral will have access to ALL custom cards that I create, now and in the future!  Don’t pass this up.

People worried about their jobs are still looking to use up their insurance benefits, and their flex dollars, which still evaporate at year end.  Give them an additional reason to tap into those benefits now, and you’re IN!

You can CHOOSE whether or not you want to “participate” in this economic downturn…notice I didn’t say the “R” word! I choose not to.  What about you?

All my best,
Chris

PS:  Wanna see the postcard I used for that 12:1 return?  You can IF you FORWARD this message to at least two dentists, and COPY me (DrChrisBowman@DentalInsiders.com) on it!

What’s Your 4th Quarter Marketing Plan?

October 1st, 2008

It’s October 1, first day of the 4th quarter of 2008. The US and world financial markets are in turmoil. Americans are angry, apprehensive, and FROZEN. However, you don’t have to be, because YOU have control over your own “economy” that is your dental practice!

What’s YOUR 4th quarter marketing plan?
Do you have one, or are you just hoping that things will “pick up” or “turn themselves around”?

Would you like to THAW OUT your “frozen” patients?
Would you like your own 4th quarter marketing plan?
Well, here it is, if you haven’t gotten it already:
www.DentalInsiders.com/3strategies

Time to take the bull by the horns! This is my best 1-2-3 (and 4) punch to ramp up your results for October through December.

Over the next several weeks, I’m going to be focusing on how you can TAKE CHARGE of the outcomes in your practice… not just from now through the end of the year, but from here on out.

I’ll be holding more teleseminars, scheduling more 1-on-1 coaching calls, and launching more resources for my Dental Insiders Alliance Preferred and Elite members. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, if you haven’t acquired this audio, “3 Magical Marketing Strategies To End 2007 With A BANG!” you need to do so now. The clock’s ticking…
