Quick Builders: How The Fastest Grow Their Practices (Part 1)

As I start the early stages of our next book, I’m becoming more and more intrigued by practitioners who grow their practices very quickly. Sometimes it’s right out of the gate, other times they seem to limp along for years, until something changes and they take off. I think there’s great inspiration in these stories […]

Joint Advertising With Your Colleagues: An Example

On April 30, 2009, in marketing, naturopathic marketing, by Dan

After the last post on collaborating with your colleagues to help your practice, I thought I’d share the ad we put together. This is a full page newspaper ad that we were able to buy for very little cash since we split it five ways. If you’re interested in giving your practice and profession a […]

The Unexpected Joys of Great Service

We’re thrilled with our new clinic. We’ve been able to offer better (and more) services because of the extra space, and the goldfish effect really seems to be kicking in. One of the small drawbacks, though, is that our patients have to pay for parking – ouch. It was one of those little things that […]

Naturopathic and Massage Therapy Professions Grow

On November 9, 2006, in industry stats, massage marketing, naturopathic marketing, by Dan

The Integrator Blog references two recent surveys that point to significant increases in the number of licensed naturopaths and in consumer use of masssage therapy. I’d be interested to see stats on the growth of naturopathic usage. This study shows the number of licensed ND’s nearly doubling – comparing that against consumer use would be […]

Distinct Titles for Different Types of Naturopaths?

On October 19, 2006, in naturopathic marketing, by Dan

Mind Body Spirit Journal has an open call for distinct titling for medically trained naturopaths. Interesting article. CAMLAW has some excellent commentary on it, too. Even if you’re not a naturopath, it should give you some food for thought in your own practice. There will always be more competent and less competent practitioners in every […]

Interviews With Successful Naturopaths

On July 22, 2006, in naturopathic marketing, by Dan

The AANMC has a series of interviews with Naturopaths that’s pretty interesting. One of the ND’s featured actually has an income in the top 1% of ND’s, DC’s, and acupucturists, and once held the record for the most money borrowed to attend Bastyr University… AANMC — Alumni Career Spotlight

Natural Doctors International

On July 11, 2006, in naturopathic marketing, opportunities, by Dan

If you’ve ever wondered about volunteer/international opportunities for naturopaths and the like, Natural Doctors International is worth a look. Most of their work is in Nicaragua at the moment, but they’ve come a long way for a young organization. http://www.ndimed.org/home/

Should Naturopaths Sell Supplements?

On April 21, 2006, in naturopathic marketing, by Dan

Interesting editorial in the Integrative Medicine Journal (found through The Integrator Blog, thank-you John) on the conflict of interest in selling supplements in your practice. This is one of those conversations where I feel the need to switch hats fairly frequently. Be forewarned. In the context of the advancement of the industry, I don’t think […]

Is it Worth It to Buy A Naturopathic Practice?

On March 27, 2006, in naturopathic marketing, practice marketing, by Dan

A little follow-up to the post on valuing a practice. It’s surprisingly difficult to get CAM practitioners to consider buying patient or client files. To me, it’s a no-brainer. In most of these cases, the alternative health practitioner in question is getting out of the business, at least in that geographic area. They’re moving, retiring, […]
