BEGOOD X EYEPIC EYE CARE
Eyepic Eye Care has multiple integrated eye care practices around New York. Their practices offer optical, optometry, and ophthalmology services. New York eye care market is highly competitive, with hundreds of practices all over the city. It is critical to stand out to potential patients and offer impeccable services to patients to be able to succeed in a crowded market.
Eyepic’s acquisition strategy was non-existent when they partnered with BEGOOD Agency. BEGOOD’s research indicated that the most important determinator for patients to choose an eye care practice is trust. To show trust in the digital world, Eyepic had to start by a more welcoming brand identity, accompanied by a full funnel acquisition strategy.
BEGOOD successfully helped Eyepic by creating a solid brand identity, reaching potential patients through effective lead generation, and implementing a digital marketing strategy to drive awareness and increase patient loyalty. The solution was designed to be measurable, scalable, and sustainable, ensuring a long-term impact for the business.
Eyepic’s new branding is warm and welcoming, using soothing colors to build trust. BEGOOD made beautiful photos of Eyepic’s doctors and eyewear collection to create a personalized brand experience online and in-store, where the photos are printed in fine art quality. The original branding was gold, black, silver, and inconsistent, which did not accurately represent what the brand stands for. The new branding, messaging, tagline “Eye care made easy”, and consistent in-store experience helped Eyepic stand out, which led to converting more patients and hiring staff quickly. As of 2023, Eyepic is thriving and opening another practice in Flatbush.
Once the new branding was defined, BEGOOD crafted Eyepic’s acquisition strategy, which involved web development to ensure a smooth user experience and enhanced conversion rate, researching, installing, and managing a HIPAA compliant MarTech stack, social media marketing, PPC ads, SEO, reputation management, email marketing and SMS, CRM management, content creation, lead generation, referral programs, and business development / partnerships with local businesses.
