The changing needs of post-Covid patients, particularly younger generations, has led to a boom in digital tech innovation designed to provide remote options for managing aesthetic practices, retail sales, communication with clients, consultations and more. In a recent MedEsthetics survey, nearly 80% of readers were interested in learning more about digital tech innovations in aesthetics. Utilizing digital tech in your aesthetic practice is vital to its success in retaining current patients and attracting new ones, streamlining practice management, providing convenient patient communication options and an optimized web presence to increase your visibility online.
The Digital Key to Unlocking Potential Clients' Trust
In today’s digital world, the primary lead sources for growth, referrals and the internet, have become blended together, with both being necessary to maximize your practice’s potential for success. Nurturing your referral sources and incoming referrals is one of the most important things you can do to build your practice and should be your priority when growing your practice and reputation. However, once a potential client is referred to you, the very next thing they will do before reaching out to schedule a consultation is check out your website and online presence to judge whether they should place their trust in you and your practice. The initial referral planted the seed of trust, but your digital presence is then needed to help that seed of trust grow and draw potential clients into your office.
These two sides of marketing your business can be thought of as the metaphorical key and locked door at the entrance of your practice’s physical office. Referrals are the key, but your digital presence functions as the door that key unlocks. You need the key to open the door, but you also need that door the key is designed to unlock. Those two components are intertwined and need each other to function properly. The key to maximizing your potential for growth is formulating a cohesive strategy designed to make these two lead sources work together and complement their marketing strengths.

Just as there is an art to aesthetic procedures, there is also an art to digital marketing. As the practitioner, it is your responsibility and prerogative to nurture referrals, as you are the expert in the art of aesthetics.
