“The conference is one of the main reasons to be a SightCare member... It's a fantastic social event, team-building event, an opportunity to get the whole team motivated excited about their roles, their practice and their importance within the team, to get everyone on the same wavelength and working together towards a common goal, an opportunity for personal and professional growth...and it's fun! I have always found it to be a very worthwhile investment.”

SightCare provides me with an overarching support network to help me develop my business. The components are numerous, including Evolution programme which helped me achieve a 10% growth this year, and the email forum which I find invaluable as a sounding board. On top of all that, the annual fee for membership is swallowed up by moving PDQ transactions to the preferential PDQ rates offered to SightCare members, giving access to all these resources with no major outlay. Excellent value! No brainer!

We remind ourselves every year what good value the newsletter represents when we come to pay our annual SightCare fee. Another supplier of marketing material has quoted us for a similar product £595 for 2000 and £895 for 4000. We usually pay £260 to have an additional 2000 each year from SightCare so we could be paying over £600 more.

We work on a commission basis rather than renting the room, our staff 100% back the venture, by mentioning it to our cx and the occasional Facebook post. We have had posters and window decals made by the company and are still inundated with calls asking us to book hearing tests-the majority of who don’t want to step foot in chain stores or who have been to places like these and wish they never bothered.
Independent hearing care + independent optical care (especially if you have the space) =winner.

"What a fantastic resource the knowledge hub is. I've used the PR/Social Media calendar as our template which is great, because it gives basically a checklist of things for me to do - which is much easier."

I am also in the process of obtaining quotes for telecoms and electricity. My landline and broadband will save me £800 a year ( less Beaconplus fees), but that still gives me a £400 saving. I can’t believe how simple it was to obtain a favourable deal for my telephone and broadband services. Beaconplus were excellent, friendly and professional and obtained a deal far better than I could have achieved.
SightCare has some great benefits, and I would urge everyone to use them, even if they only get a quote.
