Branding. Marketing. Advertising. Public perception. These can be daunting undertakings when entering the medical aesthetic field. Marketing, advertising and public relations are three distinctly separate—and yet often interchangeable—fields that can confuse any individual working in or running a medical practice. If these challenges are met individually, success can be limited. However, if they are addressed correctly, the collaboration can be very successful. In this issue, “Insights” will cover three common questions that pertain to these distinct fields.
Q: Are print, radio and television ads worth the price and effort?
A: Any solid business plan will include marketing and advertising strategies. When making the jump into advertising, it is easy to wonder if the investment is going to pay off. It is important to calculate how much a new client would need to spend in order to justify the price of your advertising medium, which will help you decide upon the choices that make the most dollar sense for your business. Although there are numerous examples of advertising not being worthwhile, when done correctly, advertising can be a worthy investment of time and resources.
