7 Great Dermatology Promotional Items That Increase New Patient Registrations

The quest for new patients seems like a never-ending battle. For some dermatology clinics, they might have more patients than they can handle because they don’t have too much competition.

For other clinics, it might be a constant struggle to find and persuade someone to become a patient.

Often, clinics will use promotions.

Give discounts on services.

Offer a free session.

All good strategies. However, the challenge is often in the follow-up. How do you stay top of mind when most people are being bombarded by advertising 24 (sometimes 25… ) hours of the day? How do you break through their highly-developed mental barrier for ignoring most advertising?

People Forget Unless You Stay In Front Of Them

Sending out a promotional flyer in the mail can get you some leads. If you’ve got a great campaign, you’re sure to make some money off of this promotion. 

However, because we live in such a hectic world, chances are most people won’t remember you based on a single promotion.

Online ads (especially on social media channels) often get glazed over because people are searching for something specific and don’t want to be distracted by advertisements.

“Junk Mail” often finds its way into the trash because the average adult receives 5-10 pieces of junk mail per day! Most Americans sort their mail over the trash can…

It’s no wonder many clinics struggle to consistently find new patients.

If you can provide them with a value upfront, chances are they will start to trust you and be willing to swipe their credit card at your clinic.

One of the keys to great marketing is remaining in front of your prospects. They see your ads every day, or they read helpful articles from you every week. The problem is that it can become quite expensive…

However, this doesn’t always have to be the case.

Promotional products for the healthcare industry have become a cost-effective way to stay in front of potential patients.

Being out in the sun can be a lot of fun. Your days can be filled with:

  • Playing sports or lounging around by the pool

The Top 5 Types of Headwear for Cancer Patients

Cancer is one of the most challenging and stressful experiences of a lifetime. What makes the diagnosis even more difficult are the side effects of the chemotherapy. While devastating to many aspects of a person’s mental and physical health, it is a necessary treatment for the survival of the cancer patient.

Chemotherapy can be especially difficult because one of the main side effects of chemotherapy is hair loss. As much as our friends and family members try to lift our spirits once our hair begins to fall out, it is difficult to maintain high spirits and healthy self-esteem levels when our hair thins and falls out. While this loss of self-esteem may not seem important, ask any cancer survivor and they’ll tell you that a positive attitude and a hopeful spirit are important tools of survival during chemotherapy treatment.

In the spirit of boosting self-esteem and providing hope, we would like to present to you a concise list of headwear available to those who are suffering from hair loss due to chemotherapy treatments.
