Masterminds are relevant. Napoleon Hill’s model of Mastermind groups for 10-20 business owners meeting together is a nearly 100-year-old concept that’s still going strong fast forwarding success for business owners in every industry. Why? Because if you take multiple smart individuals and put them together in a group with a highly skilled and knowledgeable coach (or several coaches), the result is not simply addition of these smart individuals’ talents but [...]

A number I derived early on back in 2005 when I started Big Case Marketing was tracking the overall close rate from all leads coming from ads for any sales above the $10,000-level of treatment plan.

Full-arch implant cases, and, specifically, the All-on-X case, is almost entirely an advertising based service. At least 95% of cases are created by advertising.

You can refuse to accept this reality but, [...]

Month nine in the Full Arch Program is what we call the "momentum" month. It's a magic month, for sure. Things start to fire on all cylinders and doctors "disappear" on me because they are too busy to talk. One of our practices that started 9 months ago recently reported a $200K collection month for their implant cases. World record for this guy AND he has been practicing a [...]

What is the BEST ad mix for finding AOX Cases? A very good question. Ultimately, the ad mix will depend on location as well as goals with case numbers.  If your goal is 3-4 arches per month, your ad 'mix' will be different from someone that wants two arches EVERY week. If you are in a market that is predictable with Medicare billing for medical necessity oral surgery and [...]
