    Act Now! How to Properly Use CTAs in Your Clinic's Marketing

    We’ve all seen it: encased in glass, shining, and enticing passersby to give it a satisfying tap. In fiction, few can resist pushing the iconic “big red button,” despite any warning signs telling them not to. As it turns out, the temptation to click isn’t just a classic trope in movies and cartoons—there’s actually a psychological reason behind it. In some cases, it boils down to the forbidden fruit factor. But even without the “do-not-touch” element, seeing …

So, we took it upon ourselves to compile (and answer!) the most commonly-asked questions of the bunch! Don’t see the answer to your …

    3 Keys to Creating Content Your Patients Actually Want to Read

    You’ve got a blog , an email newsletter , and an active social media presence . And that’s all great—as long as you’re using those channels to publish original content that your network of patients (current, past, and prospective ones) actually want to consume. Otherwise, you’re putting in an awful lot of work for very little reward. But how do you ensure you’re (1) generating physical therapy blog ideas that actually resonate with your audience, and (2) …

    How to Host a Community Event at Your PT Clinic

    One of the best ways to make your mark in your local market is to embrace your community with open arms—and an open house (so to speak). Community events are a great way to draw potential patients to your clinic—especially if your practice is in a small town or a tight-knit community. You can use events to showcase what your practice is all about, or even just to interact with patients in a relaxed setting, when your …

    Why do patients drop out of therapy? As we explain in this WebPT Blog post , it can be for a number of reasons ranging from slow results to time constraints.

    Founder Letter: 6 Free Ways to Improve Your PT Marketing

    Inspiration often comes from the most unexpected places. During my “What I Believe” speech at this year’s Graham Sessions , I offhandedly suggested an easy, free way to boost PT site traffic. It was a totally anecdotal part of my talk, but I received an enormously positive response about it. In fact, people came up to me afterwards and thanked me for the suggestion. That got me thinking: rising costs and declining reimbursements are obstacles that all …

    What’s a Value Prop, and Why Does Your PT Clinic Need One?

    We’ve written a gazillion posts about the importance of selling the value of physical therapy—as well as the value of your specific services. After all, so few of the patients who could benefit from receiving physical therapy are actually receiving it. Thus, it’s clear that most of the general public still doesn’t understand what this profession is capable of —namely, helping people restore function, improve wellbeing, and recover from injury without relying on dangerous, costly interventions such …

    7 Invisible Reasons Patients Aren't Choosing Your PT Practice

    Nowadays, people are overwhelmed by choice —whether they’re deciding which kind of yogurt to buy (have you seen how massive the yogurt section is now?) or choosing a movement-based healthcare provider to help ease their aches and pains.

The worst part: you won’t always know why …
