Cosmetic Harmony offers affiliate marketing programme

 

Cosmetic Harmony, one of the leading medical tourism agencies in Colombia, launched an affiliate marketing programme to boost the number of foreign patients coming into the country.

“When a customer arrives at our website via one of our affiliated websites and purchases any one of our cosmetic surgery procedures, the affiliate will get a US$100 commissions. All commissions are paid in every 30 days,” said Anthony Giudice of Cosmetic Harmony.

Based in Bogota, the company has offices in Miami, Florida and Panama City. Although Americans are the main market, it has served clients from all around the world, including the UK, Canada, New Zealand, Ecuador, Brazil, Netherlands, Panama and the Caiman Islands.

Colombia is a country with great potential for health tourism. The professionalism of Colombian doctors and specialists is recognised around the world. In Pablo Tobón Uribe Hospital, 122 foreigners have been cared for in the past five years, patients who come seek treatment for illnesses related to orthopedics, urology, internal medicine and cancer.

While the country is targeting medical tourists in certain medical specialties, including ophthalmology, orthopaedics, ear-throat-nose, and vascular surgeries, the main reason Americans and others go to Colombia is for cosmetic surgery which costs much lower than in the US.

Meanwhile, the Government is about to close a tender with a design consulting firm that will allow the country to promote its health facilities to the international market. This is needed, as until now, marketing from local agencies and hospitals has been sporadic and of variable quality.

“Economic downturn and recession have caused many anxious Americans to put major purchases on hold. But they don’t wait for an economic upturn when looking for alternative medical treatments overseas. People who are putting financial decisions on hold until the economy recovers could be waiting a very long time," Guidice pointed out.

Although Colombia is a much safer place than a few years ago, it still has problems. The UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office warned:” “Though the overall security situation in Colombia has improved considerably in recent years, the threat of terrorism is still high in many parts of the country.  A bomb attack in Bogotá last January 27 killed two people and injured at least 20 others.  Attacks can be indiscriminate, including in places frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers, and in the vicinity of government buildings and military establishments. Although Bogotá is much safer than outlying areas.”
