082 Talking Medical Marketing with Randy Alvarez from The Wellness Hour

Millennial Dentist Podcast

Randy Alvarez launched “The Wellness Hour TV Show” in 1999. The Wellness Hour airs on TV in approximately 70 million homes across North America and features the leading medical doctors, dentists and other licensed health practitioners in the US. The “Medical News Show” is a television and social media platform for doctors to discuss breakthroughs in their specialty with the communities they serve. Alvarez has transformed the show’s website into an extensive online medical resource for both doctors and the public.

Randy believes in leading your marketing campaign with a strategy which involves creating a rapport with potential clients centered around emotional draw for the client’s issues. What are the right questions to ask, how you can get before and after pictures of your dental customers and how to skillfully use educational content to assist your purchaser in making a decision based on how they will feel after their work is finished, not the mechanics of engineering of the dental prosthetic.

Grab your notebook and find out how Randy takes his prospect’s medical businesses from low to grow with his marketing techniques and his media knowledge.
