Any therapist worth their salt will have a website, not only to generate new customers but also to endorse them as a truly professional therapist.
Imagine a potential client calling you up, and you are not there. However, your phone message is very professional, mentioning the therapies you offer and the times of your clinic and suggesting that:
On the other hand, imagine the following message “thank you for calling Sarah Green therapies, I’m not here right now, but leave your message, and I’ll get back to you.”
Which therapist would you be more inclined to pursue?
Once you have a website you can become listed on referring sites. These could be:
A successful website needs to become what is known as search engine optimised which then ensures that the site will come high up on the first page of google. This is no mean feat and takes a lot of juggling with amongst other things:
There will be millions and millions of pages of therapy out there, so for you to become top of the page one of google you really need to think about your site and how it is written, very carefully.
Thinking carefully about your domain name –your ‘www.’ will really help your business and search engine optimisation. When you look at the site the very first words you read are “practising acupuncture in the heart of Oxford”.
The search engines have what are known as spiders that read your site like a book from top left to bottom right. Having your key words appearing straight away is very clever. It also pays to have them dotted around throughout the text, ensuring that you don’t exceed the key word density of 25%. In other words don’t have your site saying ‘Acupuncture in Oxford’ repeatedly as it will get you blacklisted!
We will revisit websites as it is quite a meaty subject.
Your homework however is to decide your keys words!
"The anatomy and physiology courses are very easy to use, you don't have to be a computer wiz. The tutor giving the lectures is very good and it feels as if your are sitting in the classroom with her. I like the fact that you are able to pause the films to complete worksheets and that you can go back and watch the films over again. Overall, it's a very good course and well worth the money."
