From the ads I typically see from the medical societies, my overall opinion is that they are not effective. These types of “branding” ads tell the reader why you’re the right choice. Hence, the problem. It’s all about you and not the patient!
The patient only cares to learn about solutions to their problems and what’s new in aesthetic enhancement. For now, they just want to know more about what they can do about something that bothers them. Later they’ll want to know more about you – after you have educated them on the possibilities.
So, while I realize the intent is to forewarn the patients to stick to the board-certified specialists, you’ll get a much better response by answering the patient’s question, “What’s in it for me?” before diving in to why you are the best choice.
