Many independent eye care businesses today are in search of new ways to stay ahead of their competition, competition which includes online eyewear retailers. Instead of looking at the internet as a threat, small businesses need to look at the internet as an advocate. The internet is the new medium of attracting foot traffic to the brick and mortar business.
Using the Internet to Drive Sales
These concerns were brought to the attention of Mark Dolabany while on the road visiting his own customers, independent eye care business owners. He found that more and more the conversation would turn to the internet and how to promote eye care services on different social media platforms. Mark found himself sharing his own experiences with them and what had produced real results for him. He would provide them with easy ways to increase their exposure on the net that would drive consumers to their business. His objective is to help the independent remain competitive while utilizing tactics that have worked for his own independent frame company.
Eventually, these tips turned to videos that he would publicize to reach a bigger audience, to reach more of his customers. He wanted to help more independents succeed in an industry that needed a little motivation to turn to the internet for increased exposure. In just a few months, he was able to develop an ABO accredited course.
What to Expect
In just one hour, Mark will provide an introduction on cost-effective strategies that have been proven to produce real results to promote the independent eye care business on the internet. By taking such a course at the P.O.F’s Vision Preview, as opposed to taking a class or consultation anywhere else, the eye care business owner is saving hundreds of dollars in addition to receiving CE Hours and improving their business at the same time.
