How should I start marketing my Blue Sky Plan products and services?
Here are a few suggestions that we have that you may find helpful:
Start by introducing some of your loyal customers to Blue Sky Plan.
Offer these customers product at a reduced rate so both your lab and the customer can get more familiar with Blue Sky Plan.
Start with simple straightforward cases. Don't suggest to your users to do a complicated all-on-4 case for their first case. Both your lab and the user should start with simpler cases and then graduate from there.
Ask the dentist if he/she can document / photograph these cases.
Use these dentists and cases as the launch pad to promote your new services. Promote the cases, the success that came as a result and all the advantages of the system.
Now offer an introductory offer to your entire user base, and to other dentists in your area to grow your business.
Educational events, courses, lunch and learn is a great way to promote your products and attract new business!
