With ​SmartBox, How Long Does It Take To Succeed?

Patient Attraction Episode 579: With ​SmartBox, How Long Does It Take To Succeed?


Dentists who are thinking about working with us ask me all the time, “How long does it take to really get a dental practice rolling?” I’m going to tell you the answer when we return.

– Hi and welcome to another Saturday edition of the Patient Attraction Podcast.

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

– I don’t use very many of these podcasts to talk about my company.

– Instead I focus on educating dentists about effectively using the Web to attract patients.

– But today, the two intersect as I want to talk about the question: How long does it take to succeed?

– There are so many factors:

-Work ethic

-Clinical competency

-People skills

-Accurate thinking

-Time management


-Level of authenticity

-Ability to focus

-Level of ambition and willingness to do what it takes.

– I can go on forever.

– But the short answer is: when the “why” meets the “how.”

– If the reason for what you do and the processes that you created make sense based on worst-case, real-world scenarios … and are implemented in an efficient and clear way, it is reasonable to assume that you will see a significant shift in 90-120 days and full momentum in about a year.

– But you can never coast.

– You must forever work ON your practice.

– It takes constant attention and intention.

– Like a child, your practice will change and evolve.

– That’s why I don’t like long-term goal setting.

– Get something done each and every day.

– The future is far less predictable than the present moment.

– Question your whys and test your hows.

– And never see things as successes or failures, only results.

– In addition, focus on what you are good at.

– Delegate or outsource the rest.

– As for marketing, the reality is you won’t ever do what it takes on your own.

– Participating in these podcasts may be entertaining to you, but it’s not marketing.

– The good news is that I can do all your marketing for you … 100 times better and 10 times cheaper.

– Your practice will never be the same again.

– Until tomorrow, keep moving forward.
