Every year from October 12–20, healthcare providers across the U.S honor Bone and Joint Action Week. They honor it by hosting and participating in activities designed to bring more awareness to disorders related to these two bodily structures.

When marketing your chiropractic business, you have a ton of options. One hundred and fifty-nine, to be exact, according to Splash Copywriters. For instance, you can do affinity marketing, which involves partnering with other businesses so you can both leverage each other’s audiences.

Marketing usually requires spending, and budgeting for that will help keep your clinic from focusing too little or too much on the wrong activities.

As of March 2018, the average American works 34.5 hours per week. And when you’ve chosen a career in chiropractic, that number can easily increase by 10 or 20 hours or more, especially if you regularly hold office hours at night or on weekends to better accommodate your patients’ schedules and needs. That’s why it can feel like a major struggle when you’re faced with the prospect of having to add more obligations to an already busy calendar, even if those obligations can ultimately help you create a stronger business.
