Why Do You Need a Marketing Budget for Your Eye Care Practice?
When it comes to your eye care practice, you want to ensure everything is running smoothly. This includes making sure that you have a solid marketing budget and plan in place. Without a marketing budget, you will likely struggle in today’s competitive market.
A marketing budget can help you stay on track financially. Without a plan, you can spend way too much on the wrong things and way too little on the things that your practice needs. Allocating your funds effectively can help you reach your practice goals. Planning your marketing budget for this year helps set you up for the long term and tracks what’s working.

Choosing Your Marketing Goals
As an eye care practitioner, you rely on a wide variety of marketing to retain patients and bring in new patients. But are you allocating enough money to your marketing to reach your goals? There are a couple of ways you can do this, you can set goals to attain new patients, retain existing ones, increase patient spending, or even practice growth into a new location.
A great note to remember is that lead generation is building your business for today, whereas branding and awareness is building your business for tomorrow. Both are essential to the success of your practice, but when allocating funds, we recommend putting 75% towards lead generation and 25% towards branding.
