Four Simple Tips on How to Make Everyone An Ambassadorby Dr. Ron Arndt
In a previous blog post, I suggested that you train every member of the team to sell themselves and the practice to their customer—the patient.
Here are my four tips on how to do so.
- Enroll in a sales training program. Every member of your team benefits. This program should include learning how to sell/recommend needed dentistry, asking for referrals, and how to deliver service excellence as perceived by the patient.
- Role-play “asking for referrals” at every staff meeting. Spend a few moments acting out a situation for how to ask for referrals; include all staff members.
- Visit a Ritz-Carlton or other 5-star hotel with your team so that everyone understands what true quality service feels like. Hold a team meeting to discover ways you can duplicate such service.
- Provide business cards for each team member and encourage them to share the cards with others in their community, i.e. at the grocery store, library, school, and church or synagogue.
