Do you have a marketing general practitioner?

A marketing general practitioner doing the work to help diagnose issues and improve your marketing strategy, just your primary physician diagnoses issues impacting your health and prescribes solutions to improve it.

A marketing general practitioner is your primary doctor for your marketing strategy.

Like you, your marketing strategy requires a check-up every year from your marketing general practitioner. Hopefully you go to your primary care physician annually to ensure you are in good physical, mental and emotional health. That person is a general practitioner, competent in many different medical disciplines. Maybe they’re a master of one or two. Their primary role is to assess your overall health, identify opportunities to improve, and prescribe a strategy (or plan) to get to a more optimal level of health.

That primary care physician will take basic measurements of your temperature, weight, height, blood pressure and pulse. He or she will check your ears, eyes, nose, throat, breathing, heartbeat, reflexes and other major organs, systems and functions. He or she will actively listen to you share any major ailments you have been experiencing. They will ask questions to fill in the gaps and identify potential issues.

Depending upon your answers and the information obtained during your check-up, he or she might order some diagnostic tests. Perhaps a blood test, urinalysis, stress test, CAT scan and/or MRI is in your future. They may prescribe an aspirin or cough medicine to temporarily manage a symptom causing great discomfort. Eventually the doctor will wait for all the data to come back before prescribing long-term treatment. Doing otherwise could become a case of malpractice. And the data is important for recommending the most effective and efficient treatment for your ailments. Of course, the doctor may need to refer you to a specialist who deals with your particular ailment. You’ll be referred to an orthopedic surgeon if your knee, ankle or hip requires surgery. They’ll recommend a cardiologist if a heart murmur is detected; or pulmonologist if your breathing is sub-par. You get the idea.
