When private practitioners spend more time with business administration than with our clients, we become removed from our sense of purpose and the reason we started our own business. With this hands-on technology session, you'll set up an automated, integrated, low-cost scheduling, emailing, CRM, and mailing list building system to grow your business while you do what you love. You'll learn how automation can lay an important foundation for your business' growth, as well as which low-cost commercial products can best support your private practice. Best of all, you'll set up this system during the class, which can immediately start working for you! This class will save you countless hours of trial-and-error and hundreds of dollars in costly mistakes. Lunch will be provided. This presentation is a special preview of the Professional Development Institution that Dr. Ansted is presenting at the NCDA conference in Orlando.
Three Learning Objectives
1. An understanding of how automation can lay an important foundation for your business' growth.
2. An understanding of which commercial products can be combined for a robust, low-cost system that supports your needs as a career professional.
3. Hands on experience with setting up and integrating these automated systems that can start working for you as soon as you leave the classroom.
