How to Use Persuasion to Engage Integrative Medicine Customers

Guest post courtesy Glenn Sabin, FON Consulting.

Integrative Medicine Clinical Services: When Less is More

Guest Post Courtesy Glenn Sabin, FON Consulting
less-is-more-791109_1280If you’re operating a small integrative or functional medicine clinic offering a substantial menu of services, you may inadvertently be undermining your capacity for meaningful engagement with existing and prospective clients (aka patients).

In my recent post Go Deep, Then Wide: Building Integrative Health Practices, I posited that maximizing (business) growth by laser-focusing attention and keeping distractions at bay is essential. This is specifically true for clinical services and patient engagement. Let me explain.
