The Therapists’ Network Website has been laid out in a slightly different manner to other directory sites so please read carefully.
Most sites require you to have a profile for yourself (as a business) but limit you to the locations in which you practice. We wanted to give you more flexibility
When you first join the website will generate a blank profile for you. This profile is visible and searchable to the public (and potential clients) as well as fellow therapists. It is important that you fill out all your profile information so that website visitors can learn as much about you as possible. This will give a greater understanding of you as a person, your qualifications and experience and will help build trust. – see FAQ below for how to edit (fill out) your profile.
There is also an option to add listings called ‘Places’ in ADDITION to (and very similar to) your profile.
These will show up on maps and location searches. So, if you have physical location(s), where clients come to visit you for your services, you must create a ‘Place’for each location you practice from. See FAQ below for how to add your place.
Places are important because:
- They allow you to list multiple locations.
- You can create a different Therapy(s) for each location (for example if you practice Reiki in Canterbury and Counselling in Dartford you can appear in both places on the map)
- Potential new clients may want to find someone near where they live and thus they can search for your places of work. The website visitor will then get a relevant result and hopefully be more likely to book your services.
- Some people will just look at thing nearby to ‘try out’ and you may want to be in those results.
If you are mobile can also add a listing for their mobile section of the business.
If you work online or over the phone you can also have a listing for that section of your business.
AND you can also add your public events and write articles for even more visibility on the site!
So, as you can see, you may have to fill in your information in more than one part of the website but with a little time and effort doing this you increase your chances of being found by the right client more easily 🙂
