    Hiring the Right Marketing and Sales Person for Your Practice

    As a physical therapist, you know that the vast majority of the general public could benefit from your services in one way or another. The sad reality, though, is that most people don’t even know what physical therapists do —let alone how seeing a PT could drastically improve their quality of life. In any business, though, profits are driven by demand. And if you want to keep your doors open—or better yet, grow your practice—then you have …

    Increase Referrals Through Relationship Marketing

    Today's blog post comes from WebPT copywriters Charlotte Bohnett and Erica Cohen. Referrals = new business. And who doesn’t want a little more of that?

Position yourself as an expert, an educator, and most importantly, a person. In short, demonstrate your (and your profession’s) worth. Be Valuable Think …

    Everything I Wish I’d Known Before Opening My PT Practice

    A little more than three years ago, Kaci Monroe realized her dream of opening her own physical therapy private practice (to learn more about Kaci’s entrepreneurial journey, check out this blog post ). Since then, she’s grown her small, Bigfork, Montana-based clinic into a very successful—and very busy—operation. So busy, in fact, that she decided to open a second location this past year. Oh, and she also remodeled a house, had a baby, and sped her way …

    D’Oh! 3 Major Physical Therapy Marketing Fails

    Homer Simpson introduced the catchphrase “d’oh!” on the long-running cartoon sitcom, The Simpsons, in 1989. It’s arguably one of the most recognizable catchphrases in American pop culture. So much so, in fact, that the Oxford Dictionary of English added the word in 2001. Defined as an informal exclamation “used to comment on a foolish or stupid action, especially one's own,” “d’oh” is the most fitting—and safe for work—reaction to committing a major fail. “D’oh” is even more …

    Think Big, Think Differently: 6 Bits of Inspiration from Ascend 2017

    The overarching theme of Ascend 2017 —the fourth-annual installment of rehab therapy’s premier business summit—was, quite simply, “Think big.” But, based on what we learned from our esteemed group of speakers over the course of two inspiration-filled days in Washington, DC, a more accurate tagline for this year’s conference might have been, “Think differently.” After all, in a field as complex as health care, grand aspirations are not enough. To solve the problems plaguing this industry, we …

    Founder Letter: Branding Private Practice Physical Therapy

    So, what is a physical therapist? Ask around and I’m sure you’ll get a variety of answers—everything from a physical terrorist (or someone who inflicts pain and torture) to a glorified masseuse. I mean, we’ve all heard some variation of these responses before, right? And yeah, it’s sort of funny. It might even make for some great comedy if Jay Leno asked people on the street: “What is a physical therapist?” during a “Jaywalking” skit. But perception …

    PTs Are Salespeople Too

    Salespeople often get a bad rap—for being too pushy, too manipulative, too flat-out obnoxious. And many times, that negative association is well deserved. I mean, when’s the last time you picked up a telemarketing call and said to the person on the other end of the line, “Thank you so much for interrupting my family dinner! Of course I want to take advantage of this one-time credit card offer!” The problem is, sales stereotypes often prevent legitimate …

    The 3 Immutable Laws of Direct Access Marketing

    It took expensive membership dues, countless lobbying and volunteer hours, and 25 years, but we finally did it: Direct access to physical therapy services is now available in all 50 states in at least one form or another. It wasn’t easy, so it’s important to take a few moments to celebrate our achievements and raise a glass to all of the passionate physical therapists and physical therapy advocates out there who made it happen. Okay, time’s up—and …

    Combatting Payment Fatigue: How to Increase Revenue Without Haggling with Payers

    For PT practice owners, finding ways to increase topline revenue can be challenging. While there are a number of strategies for growing your practice, your success ultimately hinges on accomplishing at least one of the following: Getting paid more for the services you provide. Getting more patients in the door. Keeping patients from dropping out early. For many practices—especially newer and smaller clinics—it’s easy to get stuck on the first one and forget about the second two. …
