By Sharon Gorman, D.C. Gorman Chiropractic Life Centers The Holidays are on the way and people need a little more TLC and to discuss something other than the weather and their issues so here’s my idea. A Contest!!!! Done many, many before but haven’t done one in a while so I got one going since Monday in my office and I thought I’d share it with you in hope that it gets a little fire lit in your practice too. This a corny contest and for some reason most people love corny contests even if they wouldn’t admit it. So […]

Social Media Headache Commercial Alternative

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. If you’re not familiar with the backlash that’s been going on surrounding a Motrin (ibuprofen) campaign that hit the Internet over the weekend, this post and video may be a bit offensive to you. Actually, it’ll probably be offensive either way, but the video spoof (which appears below) is quite creative and pokes fun at the entire debacle. In a previous post, I ranted about the Motrin Video Campaign, and I was only one of many untold thousands. There was also a weekend planetchiropractic.com news post on the major fail. There’s been a great amount of […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. The problem with taking medications, is there are always side effects, and sometimes they’re not the kind of side effects one would expect. With the growth of social media, we are increasingly seeing undesired side effects, from companies seeking to market their brands to consumers. An example playing out today on twitter, is a major fail for the manufacturer of Motrin, as evidenced by the backlash coming from a #motrinmoms discussion, taking place basically all day today. It all started out rather innocently enough, with manufacturers of Motrin launching a video ad campaign related to wearing […]

Daniel Monday Scam Alert

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. There is a chance you are reading this post because you’ve received an e-mail, by a person named Daniel Monday, who says they want to buy your stuff. After hosting chiropractic ads for the past 10 years, we’ve discovered that the same scammers visiting our website, go to many others as well. While these posts appear unimportant for our normal readers (my apologies) they’ve reportedly been very helpful in thwarting online scam activity. It’s been a productive weekend that the planet chiropractic office. We’ve been working on some upgrades to the classified ads system, in order […]

What did Obama name his dog?

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. What name did Obama give his dog? I realize this question may be a bit premature, but I’m a bit concerned as to what the president’s first dog is going to be named. First off, amongst all the Obamania going on in the world, there’s been plenty of discussion as to what kind of dog America’s 44th is going to have in the White House. The notion of a presidential pooch came up during Obama’s press conference on November 7th. President-elect Barack Obama stated that the situation involving a dog, was a major issue. He mentioned […]

Mailing Round Up November

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I like getting these postcard and mailing related posts added to the site. It is actually helping people to find resources they may be interested in, and it gives me a chance to vent. My last mailbox post was on October 27, inbox recycling. I’ve got a pretty hefty stack to go through today. (photo: I took a picture of these bananas when at a chiropractor’s office in Lancaster, California. What happens when you straighten a banana?) okay, stuff received in the mail. No one has sent me a digital x-ray unit get, just lots of […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. More than 39,000 people participated in the 2008 New York City Marathon this past Sunday. A chiropractor practicing in Clifton New Jersey not only ran the 26.2 mile NYC marathon, he promoted chiropractic along the way. In fact, Dr. Vincent Malba, wore a shirt with his name on the front, and the words “Oaklahaven Children’s Chiropractic Center” on the back. The timing by Dr. Vin is perfect, as it’s time now to gear up for supporting the 2009 Oklahaven Have-A-Heart Fundraiser. One chiropractor will run through five city boroughs of New York promoting chiropractic for kids, […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. A real estate agent in Amherst, New Hampshire has done something unique when it comes to selling a chiropractic residence/practice. Like many other brokers and chiropractors selling practices online, he posted an advertisement to the chiropracticclassifieds (this link may be deleted after the office is sold, but you can view it here) pages on planetchiropractic.com. Like the others, he included links to his web site, but he also did something I thought was quite creative. A video of the office and the community was created and posted on YouTube. A link is available to the YouTube […]
