Topic 2: Becoming the “Go To” Provider in Your Community: Event Marketing Strategies

Bringing in new patients to your practice can feel like a daunting task for some of us. The idea of marketing to people in unfamiliar places using sales tactics can feel unsettling when all we want to do is be the “doctor”. After all that is why we went to school and is what we enjoy doing most. What if there was a way we can make marketing at events feel effortless? What if you can still be the “doctor” and book new patients at events? In this course, you will learn a system that shows you how to book events, how to engage and educate participants at events, and how to book yourself solid for two weeks after the event. Dr. Lev Furman, has been developing this system for the last 10 years and has seen an exponential growth in his practice. Dr. Furman has consulted for numerous companies and corporations such as Build-a-Bear World Headquarters, Cintas Corporation, Pepsi Corporation, Foam Supplies Inc., Faster Fitness, and many more.
