Advertising


Does anyone have experience of advertising on GP appointment cards? I have been approached by a company on behalf of a local practice with approx 10000 patients. Is this likely to generate new business? Any ideas welcomed.

sounds unlikely to me GP practices are not keen to be seen as endorsing and there have been quite a few scams for leaflets in GP practices-see if you can find out more about their business

I did this once, I had only one enquiry but it cost me quite a lot. Proceed with caution. Good luck:-)

This is likely to be the old con - been doing the rounds for years. They ARE produced and may even be delivered to the GPs .... but they don't use them. Ask yourself how often you have been given an appointment card?! I wouldn't waste my money - and know other therapists who wished they hadn't. If you are going to advertise at all - look at advertising in a good local freebie newspaper for example. However the two best ways I know to get clients is from other happy clients and my website. Hope that helps. Sue

Thank you for your advice, I was a bit sceptical about it. Will stick with what I have been doing.

Similar one tried to convince me years ago that a leaflet was put in every prescription bag at my local chemist, but luckily I know my local chemist and she'd never heard of them, nor would be able to put other than the drugs in the bag!
