Customized Pet Health Brochures – a Powerful Client Communication Tool!

Pet Health Brochures are the PERFECT practice marketing tool to educate, show value, display quality and your loving veterinary care.

Professionally unique and customized to meet your practice’s requirements, a personalized pet health awareness brochure is the perfect client take-home piece.  The average person will remember only 20 PERCENT of what he or she HEARS.  Every client should go home with your customized practice and/or pet health awareness brochure.

Keep in touch!

Smart business owners are doing just that – with postcards!

High-impact postcard marketing, one of the least expensive forms of direct mail, can work wonders (when designed correctly) for the veterinary practice that wants to increase client education, improve pet owner compliance and boost practice revenue.

The Internet is “COOL” but

postcards are “tried-and-true.”

Even in this Internet-smitten age, postcard marketing is a powerful medium for the small-business owner.  You can educate your clients on important pet health topics, sell products, drive clients to your website, announce your practice to new neighbors and much, much more.

You can reach more clients!

Emails to clients typically have an open rate of 20% – 45%.  So what should you do to reach the 65% – 80% of clients who never see your message?  Direct mail – because it works.  Direct mail is difficult to ignore because, when designed right, it’s creative, tactile and tangible; plus, the entire family can see your pet health message about their “best friend.”   There is no spam filter on your USPS mailbox or mouse button to click and send to trash.  If it’s a postcard or tri-fold newsletter you’re mailing, your clients will see some part of your message even if your mailing is making a quick trip to their trash.

Wellness Care & Dental Awareness Care Report Cards

When clients understand more, they’re more likely to act on your recommendations. Informed clients are your best clients.

See the difference we can make in your client communication materials. We offer a variety of practice report cards, from our four-page comprehensive wellness report card to our economical 4"x9" dental report card.

Adding Client Value

You just gave your clients an invoice for their office visit – did you give them a wellness report card so they understand the “VALUE” of your professional services and your recommendations?

REMEMBER – price is only an issue in the absence of “VALUE.”  Educate your clients on the value of the services your provide!

Pet Internet pharmacies are seeing explosive

sales growth and are pocketing your income!

 

FIGHT BACK!     (fax order form)

Educate your clients and KEEP your pharmacy income with our standard or customized Internet pharmacy brochure!  This “must-have” brochure includes SEVEN IMPORTANT reasons why your hospital pharmacy is your clients' best choice for pet care products.

“You are the patient’s best advocate, and it’s in the pet’s best interest to receive medications through you.  For these reasons, we can’t roll over.   We must fight this encroachment and educate clients.”
