A quiet day in the clinic can be nice every once in a while, but if you’re constantly scrambling to fill your schedule, staying profitable is going to be tough. After all, you’ve got bills to pay, and to bring in revenue, you’ve gotta bring in patients.
But, how do you find them? It might sound a little strange, but the best place to look for patients is exactly where they’re looking for you: online. Chances are, at some point, you’ve turned to your favorite search engine to help you solve a problem. Well, your patients are doing the same. They’re scouring the web to find solutions to their pain and mobility issues—and you can help Google guide them right to your practice. All it takes is a little digital marketing savvy.

Patient health is the top priority for most rehab therapists—specifically, getting patients back to a level of health that allows them to do what they love. But, when patients say “sayonara” before they reach their therapy goals, they lose the opportunity to live their fullest lives. To make matters worse, the average rehab therapy practice will lose $150,000 annually due to patient dropout alone. Talk about a one-two punch to the gut. Here at WebPT, we believe …

In this day and age, it’s nearly impossible to run a successful business without using some form of digital marketing. And yet, as of 2017 nearly a third of small business owners admit to not having a company website. If you’re shocked by that statistic, it’s for good reason. With more and more people turning to the web to find providers and medical advice, rehab therapy practices can’t afford not to hop on the digital marketing bandwagon. …

Strive Labs co-founders Ryan Klepps and Scott Hebert recently joined WebPT president Heidi Jannenga for an insightful webinar about improving patient retention and reducing early patient drop-out. We know this is a super-relevant topic, especially because the cost of diminishing patient visits represents a $6 billion problem that not many people in the industry are talking about—at least not yet. As a result, we received a slew of great questions that we couldn’t get to live on …

I’ll let you in on a little secret: digital ads shouldn’t be the end all, be all of marketing your outpatient practice. Don’t get me wrong—digital ads are important. But when it comes to driving new patients through your front door, online reviews are your best friend. That’s because online reviews are essentially the modern equivalent to word-of-mouth, which many would argue is the most effective type of marketing. And as we mention in this post on …

It’s no surprise that patients turn to the Web for health information . (Dr. Google, anyone?) And when folks hit up the Internet for solutions to what ails them, you want them to know rehab therapy is the ideal option. (After all, as we mention here , only about 10% of patients who could benefit from seeing a PT actually end up doing so.) That’s where tools like Google Ads come into play (e.g., targeting advertisements to …

I’m going to be frank here: setting the right fee schedule for your clinic is important—like, really, really important. Why is it such a big deal? The answer might seem obvious, but it’s actually a bit more nuanced. When new patients step into your office, you’re not just improving their day-to-day function—you’re showing them the value of their health and well-being. By seeking out movement-based therapy, patients are making an investment in their physical welfare. So, as …

In 2016, Forbes reported that doctors spend more than 66% of their time on paperwork. And a good deal of that paper-pushing is insurance-related. There’s no denying that working with insurance companies is a challenging—yet required—part of running a rehab therapy clinic. One of the biggest hurdles in this professional relationship is negotiating contracts. Most medical professionals have at least heard a story of a nightmare negotiation that led to nothing but frustration. Ultimately, insurance companies usually …

When you’re trying to get more of the stuff you need, sometimes all you have to do is ask . But shy of affecting a Dickensian persona and approaching referral sources with your hat in hand, you may not know what sort of strategy you should employ to get more patients into your clinic. The fact is, word-of-mouth advertising has been proven to boost marketing effectiveness by up to 54%. The message is clear: word-of-mouth is must …

Networking, welcome parties, and complimentary food (and drink tickets) are nice, but conferences can run a pretty penny—anywhere from $100 to upwards of $1500 per attendee, depending on the size of the event and the caliber of the speakers. Before shelling out any of your hard-earned money to attend or sponsor an event of this kind, you’ll need to make sure it’s worth the investment of your time and money. But value isn’t one-size-fits-all. What might benefit …
