Successful optometric practices are, in part, reliant on innovative industry partners to bring high quality, affordable products and product support to your practice as well as your customers and patients. Transitions Optical embraces this concept and provides a robust marketing and support program to help practices better educate customers and ultimately helps your practice to sell more lenses. The Transitions Star Partner Program should be on the top of your list of programs to participate in this year.
The program is easy to access and enroll http://www.transitionsstarpartner.com/. If you are not sure of your eligibility, you can type in your zip code and the site will let you know if you are eligible or have already enrolled http://www.transitionsstarpartner.com/signup.aspx. Eligibility requires that you are an independent optical practice or a group of 4 locations or less, located in the US (except Vermont) and dispense an average of 50 pairs of eyeglasses per month.
The program has six levels, the first five determined by “photochromatic share” or the percentage of your total lens sales that are photochromatic. Each level has various marketing supports as well as benefits and rewards that you can earn. The program provides insights into how to best introduce the idea of photochromatic into your lens prescribing and patient education.
The program starts with your practice having a Transitions “champion” or ambassador who will “own” the program and keep the practice moving through the levels. This is good advice for any effort that you wish your practice to succeed with.
EyeCarePro has the distinction of being a Transitions Optical rewards partner. Practices reaching Level 4 (30% photochromatic share) are entitled to a free assessment of the practice’s online “storefront” and social media presence. This report will demonstrate how and where you can improve the effectiveness of your Internet marketing. Level 4 also earns you a free ECP website for one year paid for by Transitions. All of the benefits of an EyeCarePro site at no cost to you. At Transitions Star Partner Program Level 5, the benefits further increase. In addition to the Level 4 benefits, practices reaching a Level 5 or what is known as “Pro Forum” status, are entitled to three months of free ODLingo service. All of these benefits are designed to help you grow your entire practice.
Thousands of practices are improving service to their customers and increasing the profitability of their practice by participating in the Transitions Star Partner Program. Contact us or your Transitions Representative to find out more about the program.
