Running a small wellness business on your own is tough work, and it can seem impossible to ever compete with those super clinics with a never-ending stream of clients, a fancy receptionist, and big budgets, right? In this post, I’m going to show you how you can annoy your competitors by transforming your business into a Virtual Clinic.
Let's get started.
FACT ONE: A Virtual Clinic reduces your overheads
So your competitor has that fancy receptionist, great! And for $42,000 per year the receptionist usually answer the phones, arranges the appointments and keeps the clinic in order; but here’s where your competitor will get annoyed. With a Virtual Clinic, you get the exact same service but you only pay for the time your Receptionist actually works for you. If there are only 10 calls answered this week, that’s all you pay for. There’s no leave entitlements, equipment or standby time you have to pay for.
FACT TWO: Virtual Clinic Receptionists don’t go on holidays
How annoyed would your competitor be to hear that not only do you not pay leave entitlements, but you are never (ever) left without reception coverage? Sick days? Not a problem for you. A patient calls after hours? Your personalised Voicemail system takes your patient’s message and delivers it to your receptionist to take care of.
FACT THREE: A Virtual Clinic allows you to step away from the front-end of your business
Considering small wellness businesses just like you that have to manage every aspect of their business, transforming your wellness business into a Virtual Clinic means everyday admin tasks are either done automatically or carried out by your Virtual Clinic Receptionist. Appointment reminders are sent on your behalf, monthly newsletters are prepared and sent, emails are read, responded to and filed and phones are answered. Any admin task you dread is done in the background for you.
FACT FOUR: A Virtual Clinic is flexible and without boundaries.
Operating a virtual clinic opens avenues to grow your business and increase your profits. Unlike your competitors that need to offer extended hours and see bulk people to turn a profit, you can offer services online, such as Group Facebook Challenges, Skype Consultations, selling e-books and products online and even allowing your patients to book their appointment online.
A Virtual Clinic is the best of both worlds
