Toxin Trend: More Men
Dee Anna Glaser, MD says there is a growing number of men being treated with botulinum toxins. When treating men, however, Dr. Glaser cautions that is important to remember that men still want to look like men. “And so you don’t want to over inject, you don’t want to feminize their brows, you really do want to improve their appearance but keep them looking like men,” she explains. “Some times they need the same doses as your average female patient and sometimes they need a little more or sometimes they need a little less. Just individualize it for that patient.”
Marketing To Increase ROI
When aesthetic practices consider the purchase of expensive capital equipment, they often have concerns about how they will market their new services, produce consistent revenue, and recover the cost of investment. These concerns may prevent practices from purchasing, according the eRelevance Corporation, a tech-powered marketing automation service for small- to medium-size businesses.
eRelevance recently partnered with BTL Aesthetics. Data collected over a year-long period show practices using the eRelevance patient marketing service to promote BTL Aesthetics procedures pay off their devices in less than six months. The average payoff time for BTL practices not using the eRelevance service is nine months.
Through this partnership, BTL Aesthetics is providing the necessary marketing support for a quick return on investment (ROI). BTL Aesthetics offers practices options for its equipment bundled with the eRelevance service, as well as free trials and preferred pricing.
The eRelevance service targets and engages patients across multiple digital channels with custom campaigns tailored to the practice. The campaigns stimulate interest, increase the lifetime value of patients and drive quicker ROI—all while reducing the staff’s marketing workload.
“Through our partnership with eRelevance, we’re going beyond offering state-of-the-art devices for the most advanced treatments,” says John Ferris of BTL Aesthetics. “We’re significantly improving the way we drive new revenue for customers and strengthening our relationships with those customers. As a result, we’ve established a major advantage in a highly competitive market.”
