Are you struggling to find a website service that understands your therapy practice’s unique requirements and generates new clients for you?

You might already love the look of your website, but a successful website is not just about the look of your site; it’s how the service supports your mission to connect with clients and streamline your online presence. Think of your website as a service that needs to provide ongoing value to your business, not a product that was built once and stays stagnant until you replace it in 5 years.

This guide will walk you through the most valuable aspects of our website service for therapists and counselors to help you figure out a solution that complements your practice and empowers your professional reach.

Tips for Choosing the Right Website Service for Your Therapy Practice

The digital landscape is filled with countless therapist websites, each vying for the attention of potential clients. Investing in a professional therapy website tailored to your unique needs and clientele is indispensable for your practice to stand out. Whether you’re a mental health professional focusing on individual therapy, a counselor, or a marriage and family therapist offering play therapy, your website should reflect your expertise and approach to the therapeutic process. By doing so, you’ll be able to reach out to mental health professionals and potential clients effectively.

A good therapist website, counseling website, or private practice website should have the following features:

  • An attractive design with your picture so clients will feel familiar with who you are
  • Easy navigation
  • Clear calls to action that guide visitors to book appointments or reach out for more information
  • Informative content that offers value to the reader and positions you as an expert in your field
  • An opportunity for people to sign up to your email newsletter so you can connect with them and build that relationship

By incorporating these elements, your private practice or counseling services website can be an effective marketing tool, helping your private practice grow and acquire new clients.

Given the rising popularity of online therapy, having a responsive website that delivers an exceptional user experience across all devices is of paramount importance. This includes fast loading times, easy-to-read fonts, and a layout that adjusts to different screen sizes.

Whether your potential clients are browsing from their desktops at work or their smartphones on the go, your website should provide a seamless and engaging experience that encourages them to take the next step in their therapeutic journey.

Our websites are fully-managed

Balancing website management with the demands of running a therapy practice can be quite time-consuming. There’s nothing more frustrating than losing valuable hours troubleshooting website issues or trying to implement updates. That’s where a fully-managed website service comes in.

If you need an update, all you have to do is send us an email. No more spending hours on a call with a foreign call center trying to figure out the issue. We’ll handle it for you, giving you the peace of mind to focus on what you do best – helping your clients navigate their own life challenges.

If there’s a tech support issue with your therapy website or counseling website, we’re actively monitoring to work to catch that before you or your clients notice.

Designs that are tried-and-true proven to work for caregivers

While aesthetics are important for therapist websites, functionality, and effectiveness hold the key. You might love the look of your current therapy or counseling practice’s website, but if it’s not bringing in new clients, it’s not truly serving its purpose. That’s why we offer designs that are tried-and-true and proven to work for caregivers, including family therapists, on a counseling website, ensuring success in the field of family therapy.

These designs are visually appealing and strategically crafted to engage website visitors and convert them into clients. They’re based on evidence-based therapies and effective treatments, ensuring that your website looks good and performs well.

After all, a website that doesn’t contribute to filling your schedule isn’t providing value for your therapy practice, regardless of how beautiful it might be.

Ensuring your website meets marketing compliance

For therapists, navigating the complexities of website and marketing compliance can be complex. This is particularly true when it comes to adhering to HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which governs the protection of patient information. As a therapy practice, you’re considered a “covered entity” under HIPAA, making you responsible for maintaining patient privacy, especially when engaging in electronic communications with patients.

We’re here to help ensure that your website and marketing strategies comply with HIPAA regulations. Here are some ways we can assist you:

  • De-identifying patient information in your marketing materials
  • Using HIPAA-compliant digital marketing platforms
  • Advising you on how to promote your services while protecting client information ethically

Industry trends: Keeping your marketing for your therapy or counseling practice up to date

The marketing landscape for therapy and counseling services is in a constant state of evolution. As a therapist, it can be challenging to keep up with the latest trends and strategies while juggling the demands of your practice. That’s where we come in.

  • How can you engage new clients online while still maintaining professional standards?
  • Which platforms and trends are the most valuable to invest your time into reaching new clients?
  • How can you convert website visitors into paying family therapy clients? (for instance)
  • Measuring that your ‘good-looking website’ is actually a ‘successful therapist website’

We stay current with current therapy marketing trends, so you don’t have to. Whether it’s leveraging the power of social media, optimizing your website for search engines, or crafting engaging email newsletters, we’ll guide you on the most effective strategies to reach your target audience and grow your practice.

SEO-optimized Websites for Therapists and Counselors

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is optimizing your website to be found on Google.

Potential clients searching for a therapist or counselor will likely resort to search engines like Google. That’s why it’s vital for your website to be SEO-optimized. An SEO-optimized website improves your visibility on search engines, increasing your website traffic and potential client leads.

But SEO is more than just incorporating keywords into your content. It’s about creating a user-friendly website that provides value to your visitors. If your current website is only attracting visitors you directly send to it, and it can’t be found on Google, you’re missing out on a wealth of website traffic. We keep up with the ever-changing Google SEO landscape and can help optimize your website to increase visibility and reach more potential clients.

A blog (short for “Web Log” – an online public journal) is a great way to build credibility with your readers while giving Google more reasons to send people to your website. If your current website doesn’t offer the option to add a blog, then that’s reason enough to make a switch. Here are some of our best blogging tips for caregivers.

Updates to your website are included in our service packages

Maintaining an updated website is a must in the world of web design. Whether it’s updating your blog, adding new services, or changing your contact information, these updates (included in all of our therapy websites or counseling website service packages) ensure your website remains current and functional.

With our ongoing service designed to keep your therapy website, counseling website, or private practice website current, you don’t have to worry about extra charges for these updates since they’re included in your monthly website service.

Just email us when you need updates, and we’ll confirm when the update is completed.

One of the biggest reasons that therapist websites are outdated is that there’s a balance between investing in paying your website designer’s bench fee for updates that may or may not make a noticeable difference to your practice’s bottom line – in all of our Websites For Caregivers service packages, 30 minutes of updates to the text or images on your website is included per month as needed at no additional cost to you.

(As a side note, our website service packages also include your website domain renewal, website hosting, and behind-the-scenes tech support. We’ll take care of your website so you can focus on your private practice).

Pop-ups to collect email addresses*

One of our key strategies to help you stay connected with your website visitors is using a pop-up offer to collect email addresses (available with our ‘Growth’ website service package). This proactive approach allows you to:

  • Reach out to your visitors even after they’ve left your website instead of passively waiting for them to return
  • Send website visitors and clients regular newsletters, keep them updated on your services, and stay at the top of their minds when they think of needing to connect with a relationship therapy center, for instance.
  • Establish a relationship that could eventually turn them into clients as they hear more from you, building your credibility and making a recurring connection.

Pre-Written Weekly Newsletter*

Connecting regularly with your clients is vital in building a successful therapy practice. A weekly newsletter is one of the most effective ways to do this. However, crafting a compelling newsletter every week can be time-consuming. That’s where our team of expert copywriters comes in.

We can craft a weekly email newsletter to send to your clients on your behalf. Each newsletter is uniquely customized for every client, ensuring the content is relevant and engaging. This saves you time and ensures you stay connected with your clients, keeping your practice in their minds.

Every newsletter also gives the reader an opportunity to take action (called a Call-To-Action), which could point to booking an in-person introductory session, reading more from a blog post, or booking online therapy, for instance.

Done-For-You Social Media Graphics*

Navigating the social media landscape can be daunting, especially when unsure what to post. We understand the importance of maintaining an active presence on social media platforms as a licensed therapist, family therapy specialist, or mental health professional.

That’s why we offer our “Growth” service package that includes monthly social media graphics, taking the guesswork out of your social media strategy. You can customize the text status for each post to specifically speak to the audience you’re working to reach without having to hire a graphic designer or figure out the type of graphics that will create engagement on social media.

These done-for-you graphics will save you time and ensure you have visually appealing and engaging content to share with your followers.

Upgrade to our ‘Accelerator’ package, and we’ll schedule the graphics to appear daily with text statuses customized for your audience and linking to your own website so you can focus on engaging with the comments and networking online and not spend time learning scheduling software.

Google Ads Management*

The use of paid advertising can be a potent tool for connecting with a larger pool of potential clients. By utilizing Google Ads, you can get in front of people actively searching for a therapist or counselor. However, managing a Google Ads campaign can be complex and time-consuming.

That’s why we offer Google Ads management services. We’ll manage your ads for you, handling everything from keyword selection to ad creation and bid management. Plus, we provide a monthly report showing how your ad spend has converted into new clients, giving you a clear understanding of your return on investment.

Facebook Ads Management*

Like Google Ads, Facebook Ads can be a powerful tool for reaching potential clients. But the beauty of Facebook Ads lies in its ability to target specific audiences based on demographics, interests, and behaviors. This means you can reach people who are most likely to be interested in your services.

But that’s not all. We also leverage retargeting strategies to reach people who have visited your website. By reminding them of your therapy practice as they browse social media, you can boost your brand recall and increase the chances of them returning to your website and booking an appointment.

We’ll create content-driven Facebook Ads (not pushy sales “Buy Now” types of ads) to help people get to know you and visit your own site.

*Social media, newsletter, and ad management services are only available with specific packages. View our website service packages here.
