Chiropractic Marketing Myth: Time

I conduct many seminars especially for new chiropractic graduates and it always surprises me how cocky some get about working hours. There are times when I ask many graduates how many hours they intend on working or the hours once beginning practice – 2.5 days per week and over $100K in the first year!

Ladies and Gentlemen, chiropractic is a business just like any other; printing, restaurant, shoes, anything. Chiropractic requires structure, processes and chiropractic marketing. In addition, ask any chiropractor who has been at it for a while – it requires you to bust your hump. You need visibility while you are also treating patients! This cannot be done in 2.5 days! And there is no way that you will reach 100k in the first year unless you play the lottery!

What got you into chiropractic is only the beginning of the road. The boards are only the doors to the kingdom. As Lao Tso once said, “The journey of 1000 miles begins with the first step.” Not only do you have to take the step but you gotta keep walking. Work hard now, toil away and depending how hard you work, you reward will be future days off.

BestThinking to be Updated this Weekend

If all goes well you will see a change in the layout of BestThinking's Home and Category pages. Topics & Articles and Blogs & Books will no longer be shown in two separate columns.

All 4 content types (Articles, Blogs, Books, and Topics) will be Featured Content together as one continuous stream, although the column structure - one wide and one narrow - will remain the same. The first (wide) column will now flow into the second (narrow) column. This change is in response to Blogs becoming as important a content type as Articles and Topics. This will also give Featured Content more time on the Home page which is helpful regarding search engines indexing this content.
