Patient Attraction Episode 420

Some of you may remember that I spoke at the Townie Meeting in Las Vegas about a month ago. I got to interview Dr. Howard Farran about his views on marketing for a podcast. I also got to give a presentation to more than 40 dentists that explains how to attract more and better patients online. For the next 9 days, I’m going to share that same information with you in short, digestible chunks. Today, I’ll tell you a little about myself. Stay tuned.

– I am Colin Receveur, CEO and founder of SmartBox Web Marketing.

– I’m not a dentist.

– But I grew up around dentistry.

– My father, Ron Receveur, has been in private practice since ’81.

– I started off filing patient charts in his office at about 7 years old for about a nickel apiece.

– Dr. Ron also was my original marketing client.

– His practice has served as the “testing bed” for our marketing systems.

– I also regularly see my mother and much of my extended family.

– In fact, it would be hard to come to Southern Indiana without running into a family member of mine.

– You may have heard of some of my family.

– The famous Butt Drugs, started by my grandfather after he returned from WWII, is now run by my cousin.

– You may have seen it online or on any number of late night talk shows after a commercial went viral a few years ago.

– I’m also a family man, spending as much time as I can with my wife, Amanda; son, Ben; and daughter, Emma.

– Like many of you, everything I do is to give them as good a life as I can.

– Professionally, I have been endorsed on LinkedIn for a host of things:


– Web Marketing

– Mobile Marketing

– Web Design

– Online Marketing

– Social Media Marketing

– Content Marketing

– Social Networking

– and Blogging

– But the one that matters most, the one that ties them all together, is Marketing Strategy.

– Come back tomorrow and I’ll tell you why strategy is so important.
