Unconventional Functional Medicine Marketing Strategy

After more than six months of quarantine, lockdowns, and arbitrary measures taken to continue operating our functional medicine practices, the COVID-19 global pandemic has opened our eyes to what a worst-case scenario looks like. Understanding how to approach functional medicine marketing is critical in a time like this, and it is not intuitive by any means. FM providers have to think outside the box. The difference between good businesses and great businesses is that—at some point or another—great businesses had to completely reinvent who they were.

Think Outside of the Box

It is a daunting task to pivot your practice or rebuild your entire business model, but those who can adapt are the ones who will prevail. Functional medicine marketing plays a huge role in that. Thinking outside of the box starts with exploring new ways to serve others outside of your practice. Then, you have to figure out how you’re going to position your practice to be as helpful as you possibly can to anyone who comes through the door. You have to take everything you already have in place and position it so your practice is relevant under new circumstances. You achieved the level of success you were at before the pandemic for a reason. There is no need to reinvent the wheel; you just have to approach your functional medicine marketing strategy with a new perspective.
