PREP: Physician Referral and Education Program
The PREP Marketing System MDReferrals program is a comprehensive one-of-a-kind, A-Z marketing system for building a bridge between the dental and medical specialties. Its goal is to help progressive, enterprising, and ambitious dentists establish quality professional referral relationships with selected physicians in their community and to help nurture those relationships in a mutually satisfying way.
Its primary purpose is not to get referrals, although that should be the desired and natural outcome of the process in its entirety. The primary purpose is to position a dentist in the marketplace as a knowledgeable and trustworthy professional referral partner that can and will help other health professionals solve problems associated with Mouth-Body Connections.
We believes that there is a natural convergence of marketplace forces and trends that will benefit dentistry. They provide the astute dentist who wants to distinguish and differentiate themselves in their community with a brilliant opportunity to position themselves and to provide a great service – to literally save lives! Differentiating oneself sufficiently so that the prospective patient and referring physician chooses you over any other option available to them, is one of the grand secrets to business success in this endeavor, as it is in any business!
The purpose of PREP is to provide a marketing philosophy along with the marketing tools and technology to build a bridge between the dentist and the physician and to help sustain it fruitfully over time.
The PREP Marketing System provides you the dentist with pre-assembled and customized tools and materials with which you can begin the process of Physician Referrals. It uses all of the strategies and steps outlined in the Physicians Marketing Handbook.
In our information age, the business sales or opportunity funnel is a complex but predictable process of ‘dripping’ on potential prospects, patients, and potential physician referral sources. The PREP Marketing System utilizes this marketing philosophy and has adapted it to create a unique proprietary marketing technology to help dentists build and maintain referral networks with other health professionals. It utilizes both a “front door” and a “back door” approach to building professional referral relationships, and in position and differentiating a dentist in the marketplace. It respectfully presents the science, unobtrusive positions your practice, and quietly reminds physicians that they have a knowledgeable partner in you, and that you can help them with their patients.
The PREP Marketing System comes in three separate modules with each separate module representing a different subject or referral area. These modules can be purchased together, individually, or in any combination.
The FaxDrip newsletter is at the heart of the ongoing communication process that keeps you literally “in touch” with your target medical offices. These newsletters are research and science oriented and arrive personalized to the recipient physician. The regular “drip” is non-solicitive and appears in their office fax machine. Because it doesn’t have an envelope, it has a “bill-board” effect. It’s real purpose isn’t to be studied - it is to be seen! It is another way we have of regularly reminding the recipient that we are still around, that we are knowledgeable, and that we can help them.
The Faxdrip newsletters go out to your selected healthcare professionals once a month customized with your information and personally addressed to each physician in your list.
