...The office manager or billing manager plays one of the most important roles in the office, it only makes sense that they would be the first contact person

I'm a newbie at this but this sentence really has my attention. In starting a new medical billing business and marketing, isn't it contradicting to speak with a billing manager - the one who is doing the billing now - about hiring a medical billing business instead? i'm having issues with this. Any thoughts?

No it's not. When you approach the billing office manager, they are the one who will decide to outsource to a service. What they do with the current billing staff will be their decision. Some may keep their jobs doing other tasks, some may not. they may be on the verge of termination if they company is considering outsourcing

Like Charlene said, many times this is the person who makes the decisions so we have no choice but to go thru them.  And if the Dr hires you against his/her wishes your life can be miserable.  The best way is to get the office manager on your side right from the beginning.

i just read through this entire thread and so no mention of Social Media to market your business or your brand.  How is that possible...i can bet most of these member have FB pages for themselves.  Personally, I have both a FB fanpage (friend me at Caramedic solutions) and a twitter account (@caramedic) plus a tumblr account for blogging.

Brochores are great and can be useful and still used....face to face is still the best but why not take advantage of social media? Its free and constant...its word of mouth! Oh and did i say its FREE!!!!

Anyway...i am more than willing to help you all get that started just PM me.

I know i am a noob here but my brand is my legacy!

Very good point, branding is important.  Social Medias can be a great (and FREE) way to market yourself.  Utilize any and all methods you can!

Not sure what you are asking on the rules on signatures.  So far, we haven't had any issues.  We don't mind you putting a link to your own site, if that's what you mean.

Hi Andrew,

I will take you up on that offer.  I am attempting to use social media (currently on twitter (@msceofx) and LinkedIN).  I find it hard to devote time to twitter in particular but I am looking at a few automatic tweet programs where I can create the messages and schedule sending them so I won't have to try to jump to it during the day.

I LOVE SOCIAL MEDIA.. and Networking is JUST as key as advertising and in fact the two blend VERY well together. Social Media groups such as blogger, Twitter, and facebook allow you to SHOW off your knowledge and experience. I do have to warn though,  I have seen newbies get on there and their lack of experience and knowledge can be their downfall. If you have experience and proper training, by all means.. POST POST POST AND POST! If you don't. Lay low and stick to direct mail.. KISS :)

Also.. another opinion. If you are going to use facebook or Twitter for business, DO NOT blend your personal life with the business page. I have separate accounts for each. It is so annoying to see Farmville on your business wall. <g> So if you are not careful, social media networking can actually backfire you if you don't take the same approach as marketing and keep it PROFESSIONAL. A doctor is not going to want to go to your wall or post a question or contact you when they see you spend your time working on a pretend farm or playing Mafia war!

JMO!

And there is nothing more annoying than someone who uses their personal friends and family to continuously push their business opportunity!  Sorry, pet peeve.  When I login to my personal facebook I am completely turned off by "check out my latest business opportunity". 

Had to share!  :)
