The Spring Supplement Sale is fast approaching on March 14th – 15th, 2023! If you’ve participated in past patient promos, you know they’re a great way to boost adherence, increase revenue, and help your patients improve health outcomes with savings on top-quality supplements.
7 tips for optimizing your Spring Supplement Sale
We want both you and your patients to get the most out of the upcoming Spring Supplement Sale. Here are our top tips to ensure your next patient promo is a success once you’ve opted in!
1. Verify your discount
When you opt in to the Spring Supplement Sale, you have full control over what your discount will be. Head to your Fullscript dispensary settings and go to the Patient promotions tab to verify your discount, and ensure it’s in line with your practice and your goals.
Keep in mind, when you’re setting the discount for the upcoming sale, it will apply on top of any current store discounts. As an example, if you currently have a dispensary discount of 15% and you opt in to the promotion with a 10% discount, the total discount for this patient promo will be 25%. It also stacks on top of any additional discount you give to specific patients.

2. Update your patient list
Make sure to update your patient list regularly — especially before a patient promo! We make it easy by allowing you to import your patients in bulk using the patient import tool. This way, you save time by adding your entire patient list all at once!
With new patients regularly joining your practice, it’s important to keep your list up to date. If someone hasn’t been added, or if they haven’t created their account, then they won’t receive notifications about the sale or be able to place orders!
To update your patient list:
- We recommend downloading the Fullscript template, which includes the necessary headings and examples of formatting to make your life easier.
- Then, simply follow the steps listed in this article.
3. Switch to a Full product catalog
By choosing a Full product catalog, your patients will have access to the entire Fullscript catalog. Here are the four different catalog settings you can choose from:
Full product catalog
Your patients can browse and shop the entire Fullscript catalog, including your favorites. Products that require a prescription will not be available for patients to shop.
Your patients can view everything with the exception of your “favorites.”
Your patients can only see the products you’ve recommended or shared with them in a protocol.
Your patients can only see the recommended items and products in protocols that you’ve shared with them, as well as your favorites.

4. Start writing more treatment plans to engage patients
Writing treatment plans complete with detailed instructions and supplement recommendations is proven to incentivize disengaged patients and increased patient orders. In fact, practitioners on Fullscript see a 50% increase in orders when re-sending discounted treatment plans. Try re-sending a treatment plan through Fullscript during the sale to boost patient engagement!
Re-sending a treatment plan is easy. Simply head to the Insights Dashboard in your account, select the ‘Not ordered’ filter, and notify patients by clicking the ‘Option’ button next to their order status.
