The Practice Management and Marketing Guidebook That Has Taken the Aesthetics Industry By Storm

New, Updated Fourth Edition

Author Cheryl Whitman’s Beautifully Profitable / Forever Profitable, a physician’s guide to the latest and last word on managing and marketing an aesthetic medical practice, has just been released by Beautiful Forever Aesthetic Consulting Publishing Company. The secrets revealed in this book focus on how to run and market your practice like it was a business – which is exactly what your practice is.  For more than two decades, author Cheryl Whitman has been guiding aesthetic medical practices towards enhanced profitability – by delivering services that patients want, and delivering them with a customer-service mindset that brings them back for more – and gets them bragging on you to their friends.

In this Fourth Edition, Whitman has added several new chapters, expanding the reach of the book’s subject matter while, at the same time, updating her book’s sections on social media marketing – a marketing specialty that seems to change almost daily.  Her latest edition now covers new subjects, such as project management, the financial opportunity that comes from adding stem cell treatments to your service mix, and the vital importance of patient relations services that generate profitable word-of-mouth, known in the trade as WOM.

In this new edition, author Cheryl Whitman reveals the three key steps to generating and sustaining strong media relations with radio, TV, news, magazines and internet media – all of them vital (and free) ways of attracting new business.

This new edition also explores the role of technology, looking at ways of maximizing the benefit of your investment in new technology. Speaking of new technology, Cheryl added a strong section exploring the exciting new-wave skin-tightening treatment using radio frequency technology to generate gentle, computer-controlled heat just where it’s needed to tighten the skin on the face and neck, the décolletage and even other, distinctively female parts of the body.  This medical breakthrough, she indicated, is a game-changing new technology that will revolutionize skin care for patients from their late 20s through their mid-50s – before surgical face-lifts really make sense – and the technology’s value continues to improve patients looks – and outlooks – right up to the end of their lives.

The new edition includes practical with discussions about the best ways to take business-generating before-and-after photos, as well as the vital role played by patient communications.  Effective communications, the book points out, are the make-or-break key to generating loyalty and referrals.  In her book, Whitman even gets into the profitable operational benefits of including mid-level extenders in your practice – addressing potential problems and offering state-of-the-art solutions to them.
