Kayte Armstrong, DMV, CVA, M.MOSc

Still Moving Osteopathy, September 4, 2020

Kayte Armstrong is a doctor of veterinary science and a certified practitioner in Osteopathy. She needed a way to promote her specialized clinic Still Moving Osteopathy that provides manual therapy services to both people and animals. To accomplish this, she needed a unique way to promote her brand on a local level in a way that educated the public. She also needed to reach people both in the city and in rural areas.

We utilized the power of online video and we enhanced her image through altruistic advertising. Our technique helped her brand new fledgeling clinic reach its twelve-month expectations in only five months.

Here, Dr Armstrong discusses the success she has enjoyed through membership in the Ontario Community Awareness Network, and how the videos she received as part of her program helped to convince many new clients to try her techniques and to share their success with friends and family.
