I smiled when I read Jorel's comment. When I get asked the question I think from both the marketing and financial viewpoints, because I own comapnies that operate in both arenas.

I can tell you that the marketing strategies have and will continue to change dramatically over the next decade, but internet advertising is where the fish are biting. On the marketing side, we use internet video ads, podcasts, article marketing, and social bookmarking to drive potential patients to our clients' clinics with strong calls to action.

The financial side is always the same: funding continuous promotion is mandatory, measuring the return on your marketing investment is mandatory, be willing to think-outside-the-box and try new things, but at the same time, continue the successful actions until they stop working well.

Good Afternoon,

Did you know that if a Dentist has purchased or renovated a building in the last 15 years that they could recieve tax savings of $35K to $40K on every $500K in building costs? To learn how this innovative tax strategy can effect your bottom line take a look at the links to the articles below. One is from the Woman Dentist Journal and the other is to an overview of cost segregation and an introduction to my firm.

If you are interested in learning more about this innovative tax strategy. Here is the link to an overview of cost segregation and an introduction of my firm CSSI:

Hope this helps increase the cashflow of your business. Let me know if I can help, we have CPA's on staff to work with your tax advisor on the emplimentation of a study.

Since this is the business side of dentistry....

I wonder, what are dentist doing to grow during this economy?

See, I fully understand that marketing rep's are pro "marketing" to grow, that's what they do and that's often how they see the world. No different from finance guys like me. You tell me that you've got a problem and instantly deductive fiscal reasoning rears it's head and I am instantly thinking about the balance sheets and cash flow statements. That's where my brain goes.

Where do you guys "go"?

When you think about how to grow your business, what do you think?

What are you doing to grow now?
