If you are in the UK you will know that today is the first day back at school after the long summer holidays. This does not just apply to children but to adults as well so I thought this would be the perfect time to launch my first online course for therapists. One of the biggest issues that I see time and time again is therapists making fundamental mistakes with their website design and content. This is a huge issue as your website is now usually the number one marketing tool for your business. Get it right and you have great foundations on which to build your empire but get it wrong and you may as well go back to your old day job. So I have created a course called “Turn Your Therapy Website Into a Client Magnet” that is especially designed for website marketing for therapists.
Before I explain a little bit more about the course I want to firstly thank those therapists who took the time out to send me their websites so that I could use them in the video content. I had a great response and it would have been great to use them all but in the end I settled on two websites in particular one from the US and another from Australia. I will be sending a short thank you note to the other hypnotherapy business owners over the next couple of days to give them some advice on what they can do to boost their website and business.
Common Therapy Website Problems
Firstly I thought I should mention that of all the websites that were sent over to me there were a number of common problems that appeared time and time again.
- The therapist has decided to create their own website and has done it badly! This was generally due to a lack of website design skills and saving money. So here is my opinion. If you can’t be bothered to spend money creating a website or going to classes to learn how then don’t bother at all. I know this sounds harsh but the reality is that if your website stinks then it makes your business look bad and won’t make you any money. I am not sure what it is about therapy that makes people think it is ok to do this but it is a huge problem. You have to invest in your success. If you own a shop you get the best premises, signage and stock. If you are a plumber you need a reliable van, tools and website. These things cost money!!! Setting up a therapy business is relatively cheap in comparison to many other businesses so save up and do it right.
- Therapists do not bother to put their location on the first page of their website or in some cases on it at all. Now I am not sure if they think that their clients and Google are mind readers but without this information nobody knows where you are. This is basic stuff! People are on your website in most cases for a period of seconds. If they can’t see that you are near them then they are off elsewhere like a shot. The same applies to the Google bots that search your website for clues as to where to place you in the rankings. If a client enters in a search “Hypnosis in Adelaide” then the bot has search your website for that keyword and will show all the listings which have that term in the page. If your website does not say where you are then your website is consigned to an internet black hole! Start to think like the people searching for your website and what you might need to add to your website to help them find you.
Therapy Website Marketing Online Course
Website marketing for therapists is so crucial to your business success that I have created an online course which contains over two hours of video lessons plus information sheets to help you create the perfect platform for your business. I believe that the information contained in the course can make a huge difference to a therapy business and its ability to get found in the Search Engines as well as assisting you to create a platform for making passive income.
I am not a website designer (even though I have made my own websites) but that does not matter. Why? Because most website builders are great at creating a website but have no idea about search engine optimisation of the elements that you need to have to make a success of a therapy business. That means that even when you spend thousands of pounds getting an expert in to create your site it still does not create a great return for you. I show you how you can get a website built for under $200 and the content it needs to contain to act as that client magnet. I know what I am doing. As of this morning I was number 3 on Google in the US for Hypnotherapy Marketing, number 4 in the UK and number 5,6 and 7 in Australia. Not bad for a website that I update once a month! If I can do this worldwide what can I do for you in your own town or province?
For a short time only I am offering this website marketing for therapists course at a discounted price of £49.95 down from £95 whilst we iron out any bugs in this testing phase. At the end of the month the price will rise for good to the full price. Don’t bury your head in the sand about your lack of clients and be the dunce of the class when you can do something to change your fortunes.
