Have You Scheduled Your Next Appointment?

Does your veterinary practice prioritize your current clients? New clients are great and a sign of potential growth, however, a stronger sign of success is keeping your current clients happy. Just the smallest increase in client retention could mean thousands of dollars in recurring additional revenue, along with the added security of regular clientele. It is absolutely crucial that you and your team understand exactly what client retention is, what your numbers are, and how you can improve — and not only for the financial side of your business, either. Recurring clients know that regular preventive visits are the best medicine, and that should be the gold standard. In this talk, I will share real stories of real veterinary practices and how they have improved their own client retention using simple, but clear and valuable methods. We will talk about increasing reminder compliance, client touchpoints, messaging, lapsing patient campaigns, and digital tools that aid in client retention.
