    5 Easy Steps to Create High-Quality Videos for Your Practice

    As a videographer, I’ve witnessed the far-reaching effects videos can have when it comes to promoting businesses. However, due to cost constraints, many rehab therapists and practice owners feel that hiring a videographer is not within their marketing budget . Still, based on what we heard during the marketing open forum we held at the most recent Ascend conference , they are interested in creating their own videos—but are unsure how to produce high-quality, effective videos.

    4 Ways to Involve Your PT Staff in Clinic Marketing

    Unless you have a complete monopoly (or run an incredibly niche-based practice), word-of-mouth efforts generally won’t keep your clinic’s doors open. Marketing is an essential part of running a healthy PT clinic, and while many clinics keep a dedicated marketing specialist on staff, smaller clinics might not have the budget to do so. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to leverage existing clinical staff to help with marketing efforts—and they’ll get the chance to flex their creative …

    The Bare-Bones Social Media Guide for PT Clinics

    I’ll admit it: during the first five years of my career, I was extremely opposed to using social media. I felt uncomfortable when patients asked to friend me on Facebook, and I got nervous about employers checking in on my personal life. Along the way, though, I was forced to change my tune. When I launched my non-clinical physical therapy career as a copywriter and entrepreneur, I had to learn the art of self-promotion. As PTs, we’re …

    What’s Wrong With Physical Therapy Marketing Today

    There’s a lot at stake when it comes to successfully marketing your physical therapy practice —as well as your profession. But unfortunately, many physical therapists avoid the topic altogether. After all, marketing is closely related to sales—and sales often gets a bad rap. But, we’re not about the hard-ball, cringe-worthy, manipulative sales tactics that make us all uncomfortable; instead, we’re all about positioning your value in such a way that your audience can actually relate to it—and …

    Celebrating OT Month 2018: 10 Reasons I Still Love Being an Occupational Therapist

    On the first day of my first job as an OT, I remember being told about an OT with 20 years of experience in the field. I was in awe of her expertise, knowledge, and skill. But the thing that impressed me the most about this highly experienced OT was the compassion she showed for her clients and their families—and her passion for occupational therapy. Looking back on that day, it seems like someone must have hit …

    6 Fresh Ideas for Keeping Patients Engaged Between Appointments

    There are no guarantees in life, and that certainly applies to retaining patients. Each time a patient walks out your door, it could be the last you see of him or her. But, there’s good news: tools like patient engagement software, automated appointment reminders, and interactive home exercise programs give providers a way to keep patients engaged throughout the duration of care, making it much easier to catch patient dropout before it happens—and even prevent it. But, …
