Add Value to Create a Better Veterinary Practice

Posted by Matt DiFazio on Aug 24, 2016 9:48:16 AM

All vets want their clients to be happy, their patients healthy, and their business thriving. But at times, it can seem like meeting these goals is always just out of reach - you can succeed at two, but the third evades. One way to approach this problem is not by considering each goal in isolation, but to combine all three into a single entity.

Answer this: what is the product of your veterinary practice? From a pure business perspective, your product is not just medical outcomes, but is your client experience - an all-encompassing term that captures everything from the moment a pet owner contacts you, until the bill is paid and a pet is sent home happy and healthy.

Why Practice Websites Just Don’t Cut it Anymore

Posted by Matt DiFazio on Aug 16, 2016 2:02:51 PM

Try googling “veterinary websites” and see what you get.

You'll find just about 1000 different web design businesses that offer their services to build you a website, and almost nothing explaining why you need a website in the first place - let alone how to pick out a good one from a bad one.

The market is saturated with veterinary web designers because the need for an online presence has quickly evolved from merely a perk to an absolute requirement from 2005 to today. Every client expects to find, at the absolute minimum, contact information and hours of business online, and the failure to provide this is enough to incite rage in any Millennial, and frustration in all others.

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 Even if your practice still uses some out-of-date technology behind the desk (e.g. using a fax machine as a main form of communication or not having a practice email address) your potential new clients still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.

Create a Millennial-Friendly Veterinary Practice In 3 Easy Steps

Posted by Matt DiFazio on Jul 26, 2016 12:12:15 PM

On the surface, Millennials’ expectations seem paradoxical - they seek out personalized, empathetic experiences, but also eschew human interactions in favor of self-service through websites and apps.  To make sense of this, veterinarians need to know two things:

  1. Millennials only welcome the involvement of people where humans can be more efficient, or offer something more meaningful than an algorithm or device.
  2. Millennials are highly independent and resourceful, and value businesses that equip them to address their own problems, rather than forcing dependence on customer service representatives.
