Key Strategies for Differentiating Your Pharmacy Business

Does your pharmacy stand out from the crowd? What are you doing to offer unique opportunities or experiences for your customers? In a recent article from Pharmacy Times, author Lester Nathan explains why differentiating your pharmacy is the key to achieving success and outdoing your competition.

According to Nathan, when you send a clear message that your products are unique and superior, you’ll attract more customers and, therefore, benefit from greater profits. Here are some of the author’s suggestions for differentiating your practice:

  • Customize your services to the needs of your customers
  • Go beyond just selling medicine—offer additional information and education to clients
  • Offer a thorough assortment of products
  • Consider making a “brand name promise”
  • Develop a unique look and ambiance in your store(s)

What it boils down to, explains Nathan, is this: “What really matters to your patients is how you provide them with solutions to their health problems that they simply cannot get elsewhere.” He concludes with a quick overview of methods for improving your business model in order to differentiate your practice, emphasizing the important role that strategic marketing plays.
