Holiday Contest Ideas and December Chiropractic Focus

By Sharon Gorman, D.C.

The Holidays are on the way and people need a little more TLC and to discuss something other than the weather and their issues so here’s my idea. A Contest!!!! Done many, many before but haven’t done one in a while so I got one going since Monday in my office and I thought I’d share it with you in hope that it gets a little fire lit in your practice too. This a corny contest and for some reason most people love corny contests even if they wouldn’t admit it.

So here is what we are doing. We are giving away a really cool Ipod Docking System as first prize, a massage for second prize (3 actually) and 10 third prizes which are either a basket full of chocolate or a digital keychain. You pick the prizes you want to give out but make sure it is something that excites you and the staff- that is the key! The prizes will be drawn on Monday night before x-mas.

So here is how someone wins the raffle. Each time they come in to get adjusted they get a coupon to win along with a coupon for each family member who is getting adjusted too. The second way they can get tickets is by referring someone. If they refer someone they get 10 tickets and if they set me up with a talk at a club or organization they get 10 tickets too.

Every time a patient comes in the office the CA gives them their ticket and they fill it in and put it in the box. That is the perfect opportunity for the CA to talk to them about the contest and to plant the seed that we are hoping that they refer patients in our office. Very indirect yet very to the point.

We put all of the prizes on a small table decorated for the holidays and on the wall above the table we put up wrapping paper and every time someone refers we are putting their name on a decorated paper ball to acknowledge them for referring and so they can see how many people are participating as the number of ornaments grows each day.

Your patients get excited about your office and Chiropractic as a by-product of your excitement, so let them see who you are and that you are anxious and capable of seeing more patients and most of all – have fun and love what you are doing – the will be able to sense it and that is what will get them fired up and your staff fired up and then you will get even more fired up!
