Since today’s healthcare consumers often “shop” online for rehab options, rehabilitation providers that have a robust online and social media presence have a significant advantage when it comes to generating referrals. However, maintaining an online presence take time and expert know-how. If you can afford it, outsourcing your digital marketing makes sense. At the very least, most rehab managers and clinic owners can benefit from online workshops or marketing mentors. And, since rehabilitation providers have unique marketing challenges, they benefit from marketing strategies that are created by physical therapists or other rehabilitation industry experts.
There are plenty of companies that specialize in marketing for physical therapy clinics. We’ve compiled a list of 6 therapy specific marketing companies that were started by rehabilitation professionals or that specialize in physical therapy marketing services to give you just a glimpse of the resources at your disposal.
Note: This list is not an endorsement of these businesses or their services, but a sampling of some of the many therapist-specific marketing resources. If you know of other options, please share them in the comments section below.
