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.

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 …

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 …

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. …

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 …

Goodbyes shouldn’t be permanent—especially when it comes to discharging patients. In fact, should those patients ever need to return to therapy, your practice should be the go-to for all their PT needs. That’s why it’s crucial to integrate a patient reactivation plan into your overall healthcare marketing strategy. What is patient reactivation? But, first things first: what do we mean when we talk about patient reactivation—and why is it important? In a nutshell, patient reactivation refers to …

Think back to the scrappy, bootstrapped start-up era of your practice. If I had to guess, I’d bet those early days were infused with optimism, enthusiasm, and healthy dose of anxiety. But with a lot of hard work—and maybe a little luck—word spread about the quality of your patient care, and your budding clinic flourished into a strong, healthy business. Perhaps you even added another location or two—or more. And at that point, you probably realized that—as …
