Phone Skills Training

Did you know that 53% of receptionists fail to ask price shoppers to become new clients? This mistake could cost your veterinary hospital thousands each month in lost opportunity.

To sustain a healthy, growing practice, a small animal hospital needs 25 new clients per full-time-equivalent veterinarian each month. A two-doctor practice should target 50 new clients per month or 600 annually.

Let’s say your receptionists get four price shopper calls per day for a total of 60 calls each month. If they only convert 30% of callers, 18 price shoppers would become new clients, spending an average of $200 on their first visits or $3,600 per month. Underperforming employees could be limiting your growth potential.

After training, receptionists convert 80% of price shoppers into new clients, generating $9,600 per month (48 new clients x $200 for first exams). The top performing team generated $72,000 more in new client revenue compared to the underperforming staff. As new clients get ongoing veterinary care, revenues continue to escalate.
