Think for a minute about planning your dream vacation. Do you picture relaxing on a white, sandy beach with calm, clear blue water, a gentle breeze, the smell of salt water and the perfect sunset? Will it be Hawaii, Tahiti, Bali, the Mediterranean or the Caribbean? After selecting the location, now you need to book a hotel or vacation rental property. If you google hotels in Hawaii, hundreds appear. Do you go with the first one on the list? Of course not! You read all the reviews and ratings to make an informed decision.
A hotel can make or break your vacation. If the room is unclean, the amenities are lacking, the location isn’t ideal and the staff is unfriendly, your dream vacation won’t be a dream at all; it’ll be a nightmare! That is why recommendations, reviews and ratings are critical. People who have stayed at the hotel can tell you its pros and cons. In the same way, recommendations are essential to finding the best products and services.
How many times have you asked friends for recommendations on restaurants, coffee shops, contractors, mechanics, etc.? Your friends’ recommendations and firsthand experiences are more valuable than choosing the first car repair shop you see when you’re driving down the street.
Whether you’re looking for the best medical equipment to purchase, the most qualified employees to staff your office or where to obtain your next continuing education credits, you look to recommendations from colleagues, industry leaders, podiatric colleges and state and national podiatric medical associations. Recommendations from these respected individuals and organizations are far more trustworthy than simply taking the word of any company that provides products or services to podiatrists. These industry experts understand podiatric medicine and have the same appreciation for it as you do. Recommendations are the key to helping your business thrive and ultimately lead you to success.
Being endorsed and recommended by state and national podiatric medical associations is a great honor and privilege. It’s a decision that is made after careful planning by the association, and extensive research has been conducted on the company, its products, services, what it stands for and how it actively supports the podiatric community. An endorsement demonstrates the reliability, trust and confidence the association has in a company or brand.
