Adding an application to your website that lets clients book appointments at your chiropractic clinic online is a very smart business decision. Customers really respond well to businesses that give them the choice to make their appointments online or to call and make an appointment.  If you let your customers book appointments at your chiropractic office online you also can use that as an opportunity to find out they found your chiropractic office and what type of chiropractic care they are looking for. Knowing what customers are looking for and how they found your website is very valuable information to have from a marketing standpoint and once you have that information you can overhaul your existing advertising plans to incorporate that data.

It’s easy to add a feature to your existing system that allows customers to book appointments online that adds a simple question asking new customers how they discovered your chiropractic office to the registration form that all customers who book their appointments online need to fill out.  Using that information will give you a great overview of how your advertising is working and where you should be spending more advertising dollars as well as where you should stop spending advertising money.  No one wants to waste their advertising budget on ads that don’t work, so use your website as a way to find out how people found your chiropractic office when they sign up to book an appointment online.

With that information that you get from the customers that are booking their chiropractic appointments online you can build a more effective advertising plan that might even include more Internet advertising.  If you see that people respond very well to being able to book appointments online through the website you should add some text to your current ads reminding customers that they can book appointments online. You might be able to get new customers who really want to find a chiropractic office that will give them the chance to book their appointments online.  You might even be able to use those ads to remind existing customers to go online and book their regular appointments which will free up some of your office staff to do other things.
