Starting With Our Top 2022 Blog Resources To Increase Cash-Based Revenue
Many pharmacy owners overlook the power of cash-based revenue. Too many believe the myth that their patients won’t pay cash for products or services. Don’t believe that!! People in your community are regularly spending their money with someone else. Offer the services and products they want, and they will switch to spending with you. Stop focusing your marketing and growth efforts on filling more prescriptions. Instead, tell people about other services and products you offer (the more profitable ones!). It will be easier to increase your profits by selling valuable products and services to patients you already do business with. Often shopping in your backyard will yield more fruit. This revenue is profitable, but it also fulfilling as you help patients.
Why is cash-based revenue awesome, you ask? The answer is simple! No PBM, No Billing, No Audits, and you get money for a product or service immediately. Some of our favorite tactics are selling supplements, point-of-care testing, pharmacogenetics, services, and consults.
