The Perils of Inactivity
Our newsletter is a really great tool that you can use to get patients engaged with chiropractic and Willow. Make sure to read the newsletter a few times so that you are able to answer questions any patients might have and start conversations with them.
For example, if a patient says “Oh, I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while, is it any good?”, you can either respond with “Yes, I found such and such a thing interesting”, or “I haven’t had the chance yet because it’s been so popular with our patients, but I’ve heard great things about it from them.”
