    Common Questions from our Physical Therapy Website Optimization Webinar

    On October 17, 2017, WebPT’s own Charlotte Bohnett and Shawn McKee hosted a webinar detailing how rehab therapy practices can make themselves findable—and, more importantly, discoverable—online. During the presentation, they covered everything from blogging and soliciting reviews to keywording and optimizing online profiles. It was a lot of juicy information—and we received a lot of juicy questions from our audience. We’ve compiled the most common ones—and their answers—in the FAQ below. Reviews Can I send patients a …

    How to Choose the Right Social Media Platform for Your Rehab Therapy Practice

    Between Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Pinterest, Instagram, and whatever other cool, new social network just launched a minute ago, there are plenty of platforms for you to choose from. But which platform is right for you and your practice? Social media is a conversation—not an ad—platform, so it’s not necessary (or advantageous) to suddenly arrive on the social scene with as many profiles as you can create. It’s much more important to select the platforms that …

    Discovering and Marketing Your Physical Therapy Niche

    One way to better market the physical therapy profession is to ensure that you’re appropriately marketing your own clinic. As is the case with any business, you need to know your audience. A common mistake is the “we’ll-fit-anyone” approach. You either end up clueless as to how to promote your clinic or cast too wide of a net, catching flitting minnows rather than loyal marlins. But by narrowing your focus—by finding your niche—you can better position yourself …

    The ABCs of Marketing Writing

    Remember the movie Glengarry Glen Ross with Al Pacino, Kevin Spacey, and Alec Baldwin? While it certainly isn’t the most uplifting of films, the famous line still lives on: “ Always be closing ” (please note that this link contains R-rated language). Now, regardless of what type of industry you’re in, there’s some truth to this. After all, your business is only as good as your customers—in your case, patients—and thus, every business decision you make should …

    Living and Breathing Company Culture on Social

    When it comes to company culture, there may be no better way to see what a brand is all about than to check out its social media sites. Sure,  establishing a company’s core values  is (for the most part) an internal initiative, but as Brooke pointed out in a  post earlier this month , your company culture is essentially the personality of your brand. And whether you intend to or not, your personality will shine through in …

    Show; Don’t Tell: The Physical Therapist's Guide to Visuals on Social Media

    In college, I took my fair share of creative writing courses, and every instructor’s favorite prescription for effective writing was, “Show; don’t tell.” Now, as I examine the evolution of social media, those words ring even truer than they did when I was scribbling my way through sonnet stanzas. The Dawn of Visual Social Media According to Socially Sorted , Pinterest is now the second highest driver of all Internet traffic from social media sites, and YouTube …
