Marketing is my passion, and I love helping others get their marketing off the ground. I recently had the pleasure of hosting a live Q&A session during Virtual Ascend, where I fielded all sorts of digital marketing and advertising questions from therapists and clinic leaders across the country. Here are the most common questions I received, along with my responses.
2020 has heralded wave upon wave of change for rehab therapy practice owners, but one thing remains a constant: the need to keep existing patients actively engaged and bring new patients through the door. Whether you’re in the early stages of reopening your clinic or looking to ramp up business, putting together a marketing plan that’ll get you to the next step is absolutely essential.
According to Business Insider, “LinkedIn is a professional networking site, designed to help people make business connections, share their experiences and resumes, and find jobs.” Because LinkedIn has this stigma of being a digital resume, business owners—including PT clinic owners—often miss out on the opportunity to use it to attract new clients.
So, you’ve got a marketing plan, you’ve honed your content-creation skills, and you’re ready to get down to (marketing your) business. As with any new endeavor, the road ahead might be a little bumpy—but that’s okay.
So, you’ve got a Facebook page for your physical therapy practice. Now what? Well, posting great content that grabs your audience’s attention (and doing it often) should be a top priority on your social media profiles. But knowing what to post can throw some would-be PT social media managers for a loop—especially when you’re focused on treating the patients you already have in your practice.
I love a little healthy competition. From burning up the court as a collegiate basketball player to founding and growing a market-leading technology company, I’ve learned the value of building an intelligent strategy and keeping my eye on the ball.
Some people believe it takes 10,000 hours of dedicated practice to completely master a skill. It’s a (sometimes) divisive school of thought, but let’s say—for a second—that we live in a world where it’s completely true. Well, in this world, I’m a master social media user.
Contrary to what today’s youth would have you believe, Twitter is more than just a platform for sarcastic quips and cute animal videos. (Trust me: I’m a youth.) In fact, it’s the perfect place to keep up with industry news, check in with your favorite PT leaders and advocates, and learn about the latest and greatest treatment approaches.
This may be a controversial opinion, but I love IKEA furniture: it’s stylish, minimalist, affordable, and very Scandinavian. Okay, so there’s a chance you’ll have a few screws and bits of fiberboard left over after piecing together your new Fjӓllbo TV stand—but as long as you have the right tools, putting it together is far from rocket science.
Having trouble deciding what type of advertising you want to try in 2020? Print advertising can be difficult to track, and pay-per-click marketing is too expensive.
Do you consistently feel underwhelmed when you scroll through Instagram? Maybe your daily foray through your feed is getting a bit repetitive. (There are an awful lot of people who like to take pictures of their food.) Or, maybe you’re just finding yourself a little short-handed on scrollable content.
