Boy, oh boy, do I get it. Life takes over - the kids, the plans, the gym, the homework, the dry cleaner - all of it. 😵💫
I forget about this appointment, and that appointment. ☹️
I forget to go see my chiropractor. 😖
I forget to put my massage therapist in my date book and on my schedule.
I forget my self care, the action steps, and the things that keep me going round and round. 😩
That’s why having a great recall program is the best thing my chiropractor and massage therapist could do for me. It keeps me on track because, let’s face it, I often fall off that track. No matter how tight the rails are, no matter how much I benefit from the experience, I still fall off. 🙈
I've never been one of those patients who likes to schedule a year in advance. I just can't do it. I need spontaneity in my life, especially when it comes to my health care.
So, when I get that call or text saying, “Hey, it's me, your chiropractor. I'm thinking of you, and it's time to get on the table.”, I jump and I take action. It just works for me. ✨
If there’s one thing I know to be true, it’s this: if it works for me, it will probably work for my practice members too. 💡
So, I took my own piece of advice and created what has now become quite a kick ass recall program. In fact, this recall program has been the key component in keeping my practice healthy. I don't do any marketing at all - none. I haven’t done any for quite some time now. All of my new patients come from referrals. 💥
Really, the only thing I do these days to keep my practice moving forward is:
Show up ✔️
Provide great care ✔️
Check in with my patients when they've fallen off ✔️
Having a great recall program, for me, means the difference between having a light schedule and having a schedule where I'm cranking. It’s when I feel really good about the status of my practice. So, not only does it serve the busy moms and dads I care for, but it also does wonders for my practice itself. 🙌🏻
Everybody has to figure out the nuances of a recall program that works for their practice. Inside Staffless Practice Academy, we lean heavily on effective texting systems. There's a fine line here between automating what shouldn't be automated, and sending a genuine text from your heart to their heart through the phone channel.
Figure it out for yourself. Lean in with our systems if you need some direction and support.
