Case study: Websites for Therapists

For many therapists and mental health professionals, figuring out people and why they do what they do is easy. The hard part is how to stand out online.

Most therapists I have talked to, (No, I’m not a nutjob, my sisters-in-law are both therapists and I know a few others) agree that therapy websites are just darn awful.

Potential clients need easy access to information about your practice and need to fell that they can trust you so that you get the booking for the initial meeting.

So what’s a modern therapist to do?  Below are our quick and easy tips for creating a website for your therapy business.

Have you ever wondered how a normal person can get on top of all this “SEO” (search engine optimization) stuff? Seriously, there are millions of blog posts about SEO and there are thousands of people who claim to be SEO gurus (hint, people who actually do SEO hate the word guru.  If someone calls themselves a guru, you probably shouldn’t trust them).

22 website ideas for your small business website makeover

Posted by Eric Goodenough on May 26, 2013

Please update your old, creaky website.  It’s time.

I don’t know about you, but I set some goals for business this coming year.  I want to launch a 2 new products, blog 2x per week and make a profit at my brand new business…just to name a few.  I also wanted to launch a new website, since the old one didn’t really work well or give my readers any idea about who I am and what my brand is about.
