2 Patients Pay for 58

It's not too late! If you aren't already signed up to have up-to-date marketing information delivered directly to your inbox, do so here:


If you don’t have a website or aren’t happy with your existing one, this might be the most important thing you read this year. Read on to find out if you qualify for 6 months of website service for just $60 (or less). That’s $10 a month or less.

But first, would 5 new patients a month make a difference for you? Last week I talked to my original website client. He’s in a VERY competitive market (has an acupuncture school in his town) and asked me for some anonymity.

Way back when, I set up the website for him, but didn’t provide ongoing support. So his website floundered for about two years. I noticed this so I asked him if he wanted to set up a subscription with me where we manage the website for him.

Now his website is bringing him 5 new patients a month.  He’s #1 in Google, Bing/MSN, and Yahoo.

Since each patient spends a few hundred dollars with him, it means that 1 or 2 of his patients will pay for the website for the whole year. The other 58 or so new patients are essentially free.

So what does it have to do with you? And why would I offer a website for so cheap?

Simple. I created an improved version of our website system. It’s just about ready, but I need to test a few things, such as:

  • Trial periods
  • Improved payment methods (some people don’t like PayPal, and it doesn’t do coupons)
  • Coupons
  • If you currently have a website, but want a better one. We have a method of helping you move seamlessly to your improved website with us.
  • If you’re a chiropractor, naturopath or massage therapist, we have different pre-written pages as a starting point. We need to make sure they’re all working properly.

Chances are all these improvements will work just fine. I’ve already done a lot of testing, but I may have missed some things. If something happens during your test, either I’ll fix it by hand, or you’d have to enter a couple pages of information again.  Things like your clinic name and address.

No big deal, right?

So if you don’t mind helping us test, and are willing to give us a testimonial if we deserve it, you probably qualify.  If you know of an acupuncturist (or chiropractor or naturopath) who needs a website, I’m sure they’d appreciate it, but top priority goes to people already receiving my emails. They may get lucky and pay even less.

If you qualify, you could have a beautiful website, and have an automatic way get 58 or so new patients almost for free. The most you would have to pay to help test things out is $60, but some people will have coupons etc. so it’s even less.

I’m not quite ready for testers yet, so please don’t contact or email me yet.  I’ll be announcing it later this week.  Keep an eye out!

    Burt,
    I am a LAc and recently got my DC as well. I am looking to for a website that is also chiro friendly. Please keep me in mind for your trial.
    Thanks

    I’m interested also. I just graduated, can this be combined with the new clinicians discount?

    Count me in. I didn’t want to pay for a website. Like you said in your other article, you should avoid overhead expenses. But it’s isn’t really an expense, not at this price.

    I am also interested. Do you have some good examples of your websites to look at?

  • 5 Marion // Aug 19, 2009 at 10:48 pm

    I am interested as well, so count me in. This is long over due, the time is now!

    @Mike: We have prewritten pages for chiropractors and acupuncturists. You’ll be welcome to borrow from either. Almost everyone goes on to customize them a bit.

    @Jill and Trent: No problem.

    @Monica: See example websites and happy clients.

    Hi Burton,

    I’m an L.Ac. and CMT, just joined an existing massage practice where acupuncture will be a new service offered. I’m definitely interested in incorporating your info into their existing website if possible. Thanks!

    I would love to have a new website and would be willing to help out in whatever way I can. Thank you! Kristin

    Hi Burton,
    I am interested in a website. I have a new license and I’m in a new state just starting up and am open to all options available. Thank you for your hard work and encouragement to help practitioners!!
    Kind Regards,

    Hi Burton. I like my existing web site that I have with you but think there is room for improvement. I would love to help test your new product.

    Hi Burton,
    I’d be happy to help test the website. I’m a Lic. Ac., but I used to test websites and online software. Definitely could use some work on my website, so this is a great opportunity.

    Thanks,
    Dee

    Hi Burton
    I was keeping this in the back of my mind. What ever happened with it? It sounded like such an ideal opportunity, I hope I didn’t miss it.
    I would be delighted to participate and help you in any way I can if you are still planning on doing this.
    Thanks
    Rik
