#66 How Chiropractors Should Use Instagram

The marketing landscape is changing rapidly… Thirty years ago it was direct mail, then came email marketing and finally social media has taken the world by storm… Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.

We’ve repeatedly made it known that while the tactics and best places to grab attention may change, marketing principles do not.

There will never be a time when positioning, differentiation, segmentation, knowing your target market or follow-up are not at the centerpiece of your marketing plan.

Yet, that hasn’t stopped chiropractors from chasing the shiny penny from one social media platform the next using the same old marketing tactics (and some new sleazy ones too).

It’s not that social media can’t be a valuable asset in your marketing arsenal..at this point in the game, it should be a foundational component.

That said, there’s a way to use social media – a method to the madness that can yield some insanely incredible results for the chiropractor.

On today’s episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors we’re joined by LBDFC Director Dr. Kreso Jug to discuss his success using Instagram in his practice.

#59 How To Transition From 2nd To 3rd Paradigm Chiropractic

The bulk of the Chiropractic profession utilizes a practice approach that was built on the premise that subluxations are the cause of real health problems and by correcting them, health challenges will improve or disappear.

This concept has led to most of the practice styles and practice management models in existence.

Some leaders, specifically Dr. Reggie Gold, recognized the contradiction of this approach and worked tirelessly to change it. He dedicated his entire life to creating a new model of chiropractic practice built on the simple principle that all human beings were better off not subluxated.

Based on this idea…it didn’t matter what someone’s symptom or condition was, only if there was the presence or absence of vertebral subluxations.

The concept is now recognized as Third Paradigm Chiropractic.

Today’s episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors was born from a question we repeatedly receive…

“I have an existing practice (purchased a practice) but it’s definitely not Third Paradigm. How do I transition my current practice to the Third Paradigm practice style?”

Chiropractors Say The Darndest Things (& Still Build Big Practices)

I’m sure you’ve heard of the term “fake it ’til you make it”?

While there’s some merit in the concept (specifically taking action even if you haven’t perfected your particular activity), far too often this line of thought will undermine your long-term success.

Why?

The reason is, you can’t fake one of the most fundamental psychological states required for success in practice, sales and entrepreneurship…and that’s confidence.

Authentic confidence, as opposed to the superficial BS that most people can see directly through, makes it very difficult for the person sitting directly across from you to deny your position or object to it.

Therein lies the incredible value of The Assumption Play.

Yet another play from The Chiropractic Sales Playbook that when developed, will yield tremendous, almost unbelievable results.

Having this play in your repertoire is one of the central reasons some chiropractors can say the craziest things and still motivate and move people.

I would even go as far as saying it’s THE MOST important determinant in your success as a chiropractor. The confidence and strong belief in yourself, your product and your skills sets the stage for everything else.

Of course, matching authentic confidence with solid communication, a great team and well organized systems (the LBD way!) will give you the upper hand.

#52 What is Hyperclarity? (And How To Use It To Boost Conversions & Increase Retention!)

What is hyperclarity?

Well, it’s exactly what you think it is…being extremely clear.

In the context of a Chiropractic practice, it means communicating in a way such that your patients will understand exactly what you mean with zero uncertainty.

Why wouldn’t a chiropractor or any health care provider (or any person) not want to do that?

It most cases, it’s not a case of not wanting to, but instead a case of not having the strength of character to see it through.
