Growing a Practice

Here is one easy task to help market and grow your business. 

Have you ever tried Google My Business? If you are not on Google My Business, take about 15-20 minutes this week to make an account and add all your information about your therapy business.

How to get referrals from Google My Business

The next step is to at least once a week, create a post about your business. It’s super easy and can be done on your smartphone, laptop or desktop.  It’s actually quite fun too as you can be creative and it’s geared toward something that is dear to your heart: your business!

Make sure to add a picture or some kind of image to attract attention to your post. The post also has the feature to do a call to action button by adding a link to your website or adding the number to call your business.  

If you are holding an event in-person or online, you can create a post around it.  If you have something to offer, you can add that too.  It’s free advertising.

I heard about this feature by another clinician this past summer. I’ve been using it the last four weeks and I have been averaging one to two new client referrals each week who are a perfect fit for my niche. How great is that!

Remember that marketing doesn’t have to cost money or take a lot of time. Try to have fun with it! Don’t think of it as another thing to check off your to-do list each week. Think of it as a way to reach your potential clients. Your clients are out there and waiting for you. They just need a way to find you! Build a bridge for them to find you by using Google My Business.
