Well, good news, place doesn’t just refer to your location! You should have a presence built in your location that it isn’t necessarily your location that needs to adjust, rather your place. Place is where you promote your product.

So, where is your target audience going to find your product? Knowing this will narrow in on where you should be promoting yourself. The key to positive place is to be where your patients are, don't try to bring your patients to where you are. Make it easy for your patients to find you.
