Being perceived as an “expert” in your field will set you apart from colleagues who may not be interested in going the extra mile and separating themselves from the pact. If you are interested in standing out in the community and gaining the respect of your potential patients, and your colleagues, then here a few ideas that you should consider that will help you to become an “authority” in the field of chiropractic.
ü Continue to work on improving your chiropractic skills: No matter what technique you are utilizing, the key is to work on being unsurpassed in that particular technique. You will have to understand, perform and practice that specific technique over and over again to excel.
ü Evaluate yourself, let others evaluate you and accept constructive advice without hesitation. You’re never too good or too old to learn something new or to sharpen your skills. If there is an area of expertise you find lacking, well then work hard and diligently to master that particular area.
ü Take a class, read industry books and magazines, attend seminars and lectures, take on a mentor and watch him or her perform on their patents.
ü Teach others. You can educate in the form of a lecture or workshop in your community. You can develop and submit an article to be published in a local newspaper or trade publication. Appeal and target not only your patients and potential patients, but also aspire to make your colleagues a segment of your audience.
Remember establishing yourself, as an expert in your field will ultimately connect you with your target market in a way that no form of marketing or advertising can compare to. Success is based on fact and “perception” and perception is reality.
