Advertising and Promotion Growth Graph

Introduction: At the request of our attendees and participants, Empire Medical Training is proud to deliver our newest “business” training program that is more than just an overview course and will provide you with detailed information and training so you can effectively learn methods to grow your Aesthetics or Medical practice. For over 23 years, Empire Medical Training has been providing training to its attendees on the marketing concepts to help grow your practice. In 2001, during our earlier training, Dr. Cosentino, Empire’s President and Founder, spoke to Physicians about the importance of having a website (imagine at that time even the concept of having a medical website was relatively new). Over the span of his career and during which time Empire Medical Training has grown into the largest provider of Aesthetic and Medical training, Dr. Cosentino has implemented the most modern, effective channels for delivering our services. During this exciting new program, you will learn from marketing experts and professionals who lead the Empire team and who will help you utilize the newest social media and other marketing strategies for your own practice.

Advertising and Promotion for the digital age

Gain a deeper understanding of core processes and strategies within digital marketing so that your campaigns can be more effective. You will learn how different channels (emerging and new media, email marketing, traditional media, public relations, blogs, and more) work together and what each one's role is in your overall integrated marketing communications (IMC) strategy. IMC tactics will cover the 4 p's of marketing and take a deep dive into promotional mix elements to help your medical practice grow.

Where to allocate your budget may be one of the most challenging questions, and we have answers! With the rise in digital technology, businesses now have a wider range of tools at their disposal to reach prospective customers. These include new media like social platforms and more traditional advertising methods like TV commercials and billboards; all can be used for different purposes with differing levels or success rates. We will discuss how each of these channels can be at your disposal, and give you the tools to choose which are most appropriate for your business. For instance, small medical practices may benefit more from traditional means of advertising, whereas larger corporations may have better luck with digital strategies. You will also learn about different ways to measure the effectiveness of each platform and look at key performance indicators (KPI’s) based off your ultimate goals.

This fun and interactive course also introduces you to first-touch marketing attribution and persona development and segmentation. Marketing efforts should always be proven with aggregated data.
