One of the greatest challenges, we as professionals have had, is getting the attention of potential patients. Why? Hearing loss is not a topic consumers want to engage in. There is a deep connection between aging and being hard of hearing. It’s a stigma we have perpetuated by constantly focusing on selling people on “invisible”, “discrete” hearing aids which confirm the stigma. So now that the topic of hearing loss is on the lips of major consumer electronics brands – such as Apple – this is the greatest “attention” opportunity this industry has ever seen. EVER!
In the video linked above, when CTA is talking about hearing loss in a keynote speech, it’s time to pay attention.
Now is the time to ride this media wave. Let these major consumer electronic players do the work of driving the conversation around hearing loss to the masses. Do not fight it, align with it. Leverage this new attention on hearing loss by showcasing how your service, knowledge, and expertise bring great value to the consumer.
An idea that you may consider is developing new services such as training courses for people who have purchased OTC devices. For example, a training seminar on how hearing apps work and charge for it.
