The #1 Way to Attract New Clients to Your Veterinary Practice

Posted by Liz Thoms on Aug 9, 2016 3:36:33 PM

In our previous blogs we have talked in great lengths about the importance of client churn rates in your practice. While it is still important to track the rate your business is gaining new clients versus the number of clients it is losing each month/quarter/year, attracting new clients is still key to growing your practice. 

Attracting new clients, no matter if they are a Millennial pet owners or not, is not an easy task, especially if you have been marketing your veterinary practice the same way for the last 10 years. Even if your practice still uses some out-of-date technology behind the desk (e.g. using a fax machine as a main form of communication or not having a practice email address) your potential new clients still expect to be able to find and communicate with you in a convenient setting outside of the office.

Veterinary Churn Rate: How to Spot a Leaky Client List

Customer churn is a well known concept in business, but it's an oft-ignored statistic in veterinary economics.  And it could be costing your practice revenue, big time!

For veterinary clinics, churn refers to whenever a customer chooses to no longer use your services for their pet.  Because this decision is often made without your practice management software's knowledge, your contacts database could be hemorrhaging clients and you'd have no idea the extent of the bleeding!
