Marketing Firm for Plastic Surgeons Will Connect Surgeons to Their Local Community in New Way, According to CEO Craig Stephens.

Marketing Firm for Plastic Surgeons Will Connect Surgeons to Their Local Community in New Way, According to CEO Craig Stephens.











Craig Stephens
President to Marketing Specialist for Plastic Surgeons


Key Largo, FL (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

Marketing Specialists for Plastic Surgeons, a Florida-based marketing group, has said it will increase local interest in surgeons through a unique, alternative means of marketing — namely a contest. Craig Stephens, founder and CEO of Marketing Specialists for Plastic Surgeons, is hoping to give surgeons more options regarding how they market their practices.

“Using a contest solely for plastic surgeons has not been done before,” said Stephens. “Something as simple as a competition among potential patients will allow surgeons to better connect with their local markets. It allows the doctor to collect information which can be repurposed to promote a surgeon’s character and humanity.”

Stephens says that the tactics employed are known as Blue Ocean strategies — a character building approach that can drastically improve practice relevance in the community within just a few months. The results, Stephens adds, are far superior to anything that a generic marketing can provide.

“The data collected will be rolled-over to enhance the doctor’s credibility. The reason why these strategies work is because people respond more to expertise than price.” said Stephens. “Expertise in a certain procedure is always supported by patient testimonials from respected sources, and these carry more weight than price-driven ‘me too’ special offers. When someone is considering a cosmetic procedure, most understand that a bargain may not be such a good idea if the quality isn’t there. Patients are much happier dealing with the best than the cheapest when it comes to these kinds of services.”

“By improving community involvement and showing that a doctor cares, the newly-branded “expert” can radically improve the practice’s productivity, not just in the quantity of patients, but the quality,” added Stephens. “Most clients use reviews and testimonials today to aide in selection of products and services.”

The novel part of the local campaign that Stephens is undertaking is the contest, which offers a free surgery procedure to the person who tells the most engaging and compassionate story about why they want or need the procedure performed. The contest is open to all, and ends when 500 unique applications have been received. According to Stephens, surgeons will use this information as a way to gather insight into the thoughts of “non-customers,”which is the name given to people that want a procedure but haven’t had it performed due to cost or other worries.

About Marketing Specialists for Plastic Surgeons:

Florida-based Marketing Specialists for Plastic Surgeons is a company directly involved in developing marketing techniques for both the cosmetic and plastic surgery industries. The company is owned and operated by Craig Stephens.

Golden West Auto Finance Advises Young Adults on How Much They Should Spend on Their First Car

Golden West Auto Finance Advises Young Adults on How Much They Should Spend on Their First Car











Your First Car


Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) December 26, 2013

Golden West Auto Finance, an automotive financial services provider serving the state of California, is proud to announce the publication of a new featured blog post entitled: “How Much Should You Spend on Your First Car?” This article, co-authored by two of the team’s founding members, is meant to educate young adults and first-time car-buyers as to how they should budget for their vehicles.

“We see far too many young consumers with unrealistic aspirations,” said T. Brown, one of the article’s co-authors. “They want the shiniest, newest, fanciest cars on the lot, when in reality this would wreak havoc on their finances, both now and on into the future.”

The article, which interested parties can read in its entirety here, provides concrete prescriptions for buyers, whether they into pay for their vehicles in cash or through a loan. If a loan is involved, the article advocates spending no more than 15% of one’s net monthly income on a car payment, while opting for the shortest repayment term possible. If paying cash, the authors suggest spending just 10%-30% of one’s gross annual income on a car.

“A car is a depreciating asset,” said Mr. Brown. “And therefore, it behooves the buyer to spend the least amount possible, while still buying a car that is practical and reliable for both highway driving and everyday commuting.”

The article proposes a strategy in which a buyer “tests” the car-buying waters by making “pretend” payments to their own savings account, thereby establishing a payment amount that is comfortable while accruing enough funds for a down payment.

About the Company: Golden West Auto Finance connects borrowers and lenders in real-time, all across the state of California.

Feline Conservation Federation teaches Wildlife Conservation for Educators at their Wild Cat Weekend

Feline Conservation Federation teaches Wildlife Conservation for Educators at their Wild Cat Weekend











Wildlife Educators use ambassador animals to stimulate interest in school kids


(PRWEB) December 21, 2013

On Sunday, January 12, 2014, Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary in Sarasota, Florida, will host the Wildlife Conservation Educators Course. This Feline Conservation Federation (FCF) “how to” continuing education class is taught by Debi Willoughby, a Massachusetts licensed wildlife educator and founder of Jungle Encounters.

Instructor Willoughby believes we need to act now to help secure the future for wild animals. This inspired her to work with the FCF to develop a one day instructional class to help wildlife educators develop effective conservation messages that enlighten the public and bring understanding of complex environmental issues.

Willoughby explains that being a wildlife educator is an effective way to spread awareness about wildlife and the survival issues they face on a daily basis. “Hundreds of thousands of people are informed about conservation efforts and are introduced to spectacular animal ambassadors every day here in the US”, Willoughby states, “and this public awareness improves the ability of conservation efforts to raise the much needed funds that are crucial to helping save these animals in the wild.”

Beginning at 8:00 am and running to 6:00 pm, students learn to develop safe, informative, entertaining and successful wildlife education programs. Willoughby explains how to choose and train animal ambassadors, and how to manage different types of audiences. Existing educators learn new ways to stand out and be a valuable asset to their employer. Folks just starting learn how to create their own wildlife education program. Willoughby teaches how to meet federal licensing requirements and form a business and also, how to expand and keep the business successful.

Big Cat Habitat is located at 7101 Palmer Blvd in Sarasota, FL. The closest airports are Sarasota (SRQ), and Tampa (TPA). Various lodging is available, with the AmericInn being the closest to the Sanctuary. Fee for this course is $ 160 ($ 125 for FCF members), and registrations can be made and paid for online at the Feline Conservation Federation website.

A special feature will be a one hour live animal show at 2:00 pm put on by Big Cat Habitat. Course attendees will watch as a variety of felines are given a daily training class which uses positive reinforcement to shape desired natural behaviors. This is a firsthand look at how professionals handle and work with big cats!

Professional wildlife exhibitors, such as Willoughby and Big Cat Habitat, are licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and must meet stringent regulations on animal welfare and public safety. Willoughby designed the curriculum to prepare upcoming educators to meet this federal licensing, and she notes it is also a valuable continuing educational opportunity for the folks already working at zoos, nature centers, and wildlife sanctuaries.

Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary, host to this event, is a rescue and educational wildlife facility. Big Cat Habitat is also hosting another FCF course, its highly acclaimed Wild/Exotic Feline Husbandry Course, on Friday, January 10. On Saturday, students are invited to BCH for a special guided tour of the facility where emphasis on the design, and daily management of the facility will enable students to see how a successful facility operates.

Another training demonstration will also be part of this tour. Courses are $ 160 each. Members of the Feline Conservation Federation receive a $ 35 discount on each course registration fee. The special Saturday tour is $ 15. Join the FCF using the website’s online form and pay with PayPal. Students that register online and pay for both classes will have their fee waived for the tour of the Big Cat Habitat on Saturday.

This “wildcat weekend” concludes Sunday after the Wildlife Conservation Educators Course, giving folks the tools they need to prepare for exotic feline ownership and the knowledge to be successful, professional wildlife educators.

The Feline Conservation Federation is a self-regulating group of exotic feline owners and handlers with an established group of professional members and inspected and accredited facilities. FCF is both an important genetic resource as well as a key resource of ambassador animals used in conservation education.
