#74 Clarifying The Confusion With Closing

ABC.

A – Always.

B – Be.

C – Closing.

To paraphrase this famous scene from Glengarry Glen Ross…“Always be closing.”

The concept of closing haunts chiropractors for a long list of possible reasons from poor self-esteem to misunderstood semantics.

It seems much easier, with far less stress and pressure to just “hope” for a working relationship to emerge from being a good doctor, “telling the story” or in many cases, good luck.

The problem is, and I’ll be as blunt as possible…it doesn’t work.

Aside from the reality that I tried it myself for many years with little success, the research on consumer psychology verifies people don’t just fall into a purchase, it’s a complex decision making process.

If you want to the end result to be a win-win working relationship, you’d better be involved in helping your prospect make a choice that is in their best interest today and for their future.

Instead of “closing” and all the negative attachment you may have to the word itself, go ahead and replace it with “getting an agreement”. You’ll feel an immediate ease and a clearer view of the goal during your sales process (we’ll save your attachments to the word selling for another time).

On this episode we cover the need for authentically closing the loop and getting strong agreements with your potential clients.

#73 How To Get 61% Open Rates For Your Core Curriculum Email Sequence

It’s often assumed that once day two is complete and the agreement has been made, that you’re “in the clear.”

You can finally stop with the stressful ongoing education and no more selling the benefit of future care is required.

What a relief!

Unfortunately, that couldn’t be further from the truth…in fact, in this instance it’s completely the opposite.

Once you’ve build rapport and confirmed a strong agreement at your Review of Results, the long term communication strategy begins. This is what we like to call your Core Curriculum.

It’s all the information a patient NEEDS to know in order to pass the tests at the end of each stage of your care and make a new decision going forward.

In a past episode we discussed in general, what the components your core curriculum were and how to potentially implement them.

On this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors we highlight in great detail, one very important strategy for sharing your core curriculum…email. Read More

#72 How To Become A Table Talk Master

Communication is at the heart of everything from marketing to conversion and retention. There’s really not a single interaction on- or off-line that isn’t improved by strengthening your abilities to communicate.

What I find interesting is that very few doctors actually practice this fundamental component to their practice success.

Outside of some coaching that only ‘sort of’ gets implemented or on the Monday following a spizzed up weekend at a seminar, those notes with strategies for improvement all end up packed away collecting dust and your practice never changes.

This episode is about the Feynman Technique for learning…

Dr. Feynman was a world-class, Nobel Prize winning Physicist but he was also famous as someone who was an expert in many different topics.

In his pursuit of knowledge, he was able to develop a method that was also developed into a technique for others to learn even the most complex of concepts as quickly as possible.

This is of obvious value to you, the chiropractor, as learning to simplify your communication (including your table talk) to a population that understands very little about the benefits of your service could be just the catalyst you need for growth.

#68 How to Create Online Content That Converts

Do you spend hours every week creating what you think appears to be great content?

Your videos are full of valuable tips and instruction, your blog posts are detailed and well researched, maybe you host a podcast every week that takes hours to prepare for… but no one is showing up at your door asking for help!

With the exodus from television and radio to social media, the marketing climate has changed drastically and it’s likely you haven’t followed suit.

Information is available and it’s free.

Your market doesn’t want to be bombarded with more content they don’t care about.

The same old recycled chiropractic ads just won’t cut it anymore.

On this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors we give you a blueprint to help your transition into making content that people care about AND content that motivates them to seek your help.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.
