Resources to build your own website
These are all of the great resources that I have found very useful in launching and growing my counseling private practice. I do want you to know that some of these things are affiliate links, meaning that I get a small commission for recommending them. With that said, I would not recommend them unless I thought they would make your counseling private practice more awesome. I take being an affiliate seriously, I am aligning myself with these products because I have experienced growth through learning through them. If your experience is different, I really want to know! If you ever have questions about me being an affiliate or how that works, please drop me an email or check out my monthly earning reports. Here are things that can really help your practice grow!
A domain is your “address” online, for example, mine is www.practiceofthepractice.com. Buying one is the very first step in launching a private practice or improving one. In buying one, you want to think about what people are searching for in your area. What are their keywords?
For example, I bought www.counselingtraversecity.com a while ago and my ranking almost immediately went up.
Next you need to get hosting. Great hosting is secure and will not be hacked easily. Also, great hosting is easy for the non-techy as well as the one that knows HTML. I personally use Bluehost because of these reasons. There are lots of hosts out there, but they integrate really easily into WordPress. If you have any questions, I’d be happy to try and answer them.
Also, since the front end linking between Namecheap, Bluehost, and WordPress is often difficult, I’d be happy to do that for free for you if you use my Bluehost affiliate link. Just send me an email after you use the link and tell me your website URL, I’ll get you started.
