Eyewear Promotions Aims to Strengthen Your Practice

Today’s entry comes from Kirk Poole, Practice Management Specialist for Eyefinity/OfficeMate:

Looking for ways to increase your web presence?  Is your practice not showing up in online searches, or could it use a boost to get into the top listings?  Eyefinity/Officemate has the tool to help you: EyewearPromotions.com!

EyewearPromotions.com is a new consumer-facing web site that gives private practice the tools to compete with retail.  It starts with a heavy advertising campaign utilizing Google and Yahoo sponsored search that drives consumers to the web site, which offers them great deals on designer frames, sunwear, premium lenses, contacts, and more. To take advantage of these offers, consumers can locate a local participating provider through a zip code search tool on EyewearPromotions.com. It even links out to your eWeb Extra site, and the consumer sees that same appealing promotions, which are automatically updated and added to your practice’s site.

You can also download the signage and display it in your practice to increase sales to your existing patients.  This will help ensure consistency and continuity of the promotion both online and in your practice.

Because your eWeb Extra site is connected with EyewearPromotions.com, your site’s status raises with search engine optimization.  Your web site traffic will increase, and more patients will discover the value that your practice can offer them.  Did you know that 42% of consumers looking for an optometrist last year found them on the internet? With statistics like that, doesn’t it make sense to make your presence on the web the best it can be? With eWeb Extra and EyewearPromotions.com, you can’t miss.

We’re Stepping Out to Stop Diabetes!

ADA Step Out Walk to Fight Diabetes

In partnership with VSP Global, Eyefinity/OfficeMate is taking part in Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes to support the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. It is a disease that has deadly serious consequences, and there is no cure. VSP is committed to supporting the ADA and to raising awareness about the importance of annual eye exams to detect the signs of diabetes and allow for early treatment and management of the disease. Did you know that 90 percent of diabetes-related blindness can be avoided with annual eye exams? For more information about diabetes, please visit our Diabetes Discovery Center.

The Eyefinity/OfficeMate Irvine, CA, team members have join together to walk 3.1 miles at the Step Out Walk in Buena Park, CA, at 8:30am on Saturday, October 9, 2010. The walk is taking place at Knott’s Berry Farm, so there’s a good chance that we’ll see Snoopy on our walk! If you live in Orange County and want to walk with us, we would love to have your company. If you live outside of Orange County, or you cannot participate in the walk, you can support our team with a financial donation on our Eyefinity/OfficeMate – Irvine Team Web page. We are raising funds to help the American Diabetes Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes, and fund critical research for a cure.

If you would like more information about the Eyefinity/OfficeMate Irvine Team and how you can participate in this important event and fundraiser, leave a comment at the end of this blog post.

Please forward this blog post to your friends and family – participation is welcome by all! Together we can stop diabetes. One step at a time.
