In addition to detailed plans and goals, you’re going to need one place to organize your plans, add members to those plans, automate payments and track your results. Some dental practices attempt to organize these details on their own, only to get in over their heads by the sheer amount of information needing to be filed away.
If you really want to grow and efficiently manage your membership program, you should consider using membership software. Software can make your life easier when growing and managing a membership program and can relieve the headache of manually tracking and charging patients.
Another reason why you need a software system is because it’s likely that your front desk manager will be the one in charge of managing your program. But what happens if that person quits or gets fired? Your program could fail because the one person managing it no longer works at your practice. It is much easier and safer to create a system and use software to manage the membership program.
Software programs like BoomCloud can help you keep everything organized and make managing your in-house membership program easier, all while allowing your patients to sign up through your own website.
If you need a better website for your dental practice, BoomCloud’s sister company, RocketFire, can help your office with that. They build and maintain beautiful dental websites that integrate easily with our membership software, and they even allow you to accept one-time payments from your patients right from your website. I highly recommend using RocketFire because the staff understands dentistry and its products integrate seamlessly with BoomCloud membership software.
Once you’ve figured out the plans you’re going to offer, how you’re going to keep track of all your program information and what your goals are, it’s time to get down to the real business: money.
After all, you’re creating this program to boost your profits, so you should take extra time to carefully sort out the details of pricing and payment. If the price of your membership is too high, then your program won’t take off and can’t benefit your practice. If the price is too low, it may hurt your practice by lowering your potential profits.
If you’re totally lost on how to structure your pricing, here are some tips.
