20/20 Money Episode #294 – An optometry marketing conversation with Eugene Shatsman: the importance of the Google “snack pack” for your practice, why online scheduling is table stakes, why linking to your Google Biz Profile is a mistake, AI’s influence on the future of Google search, and more!

June 24, 2024

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Eugene Shatsman, Managing Partner of National Strategic Group and new host of The Power Hour Podcast

In this wide-reaching marketing conversation, Eugene shares a variety of “low hanging marketing fruit” mistakes and misconceptions that practice owners nationwide have about how marketing should be leveraged in their practice. We talk about a variety of topics, ranging from the importance of being able to measure your marketing spend, why it’s not “if” but “how many” new patients you are likely losing by not having an online scheduler on your website, the different ways in which marketing should be viewed for a growing vs established practice, and many other conversations. Admittedly, doing episodes like this almost feel like a disservice because there are so many different tangents that we could go down, but despite the wide ranging conversation I believe you’ll still come away with a handful of action items that, as I mention in the beginning of the episode, you can immediately communicate to your strategic partners to help you improve or implement.
