In This Podcast


If you are in private practice and are under the $60 000 mark, this podcast series is for you! Joe is going back to the basics and running through the various phases involved in setting up a practice that is going to thrive! In this episode, Joe speaks about how to make a website.

Why Have a Website?

There are various ways that people will find your private practice:

  • Word of mouth
  • Google search
  • Facebook search

Therefore, having a website is extremely important. It’s also important that your website looks great because people will judge the quality of your therapy based on the quality of your website.

The Basics of Websites

  • Hosting – the foundation, where all your information is stored, the backend of your website, i.e.: Bluehost
  • Design – for example, WordPress. You can choose a theme and then include your content / images ( Try to find images that are local. Show the outcome of therapy as opposed to the reason for therapy.

What’s Involved in Setting up a Website

  • Budget
  • Time
    • The more you’re paying someone else to set up / maintain your website, the less time you’ll have to spend on it
  • Customization

Website Mistakes

  • No visible phone number
  • No CTA (call to action) to book an appointment that stands out
  • Therapy websites look more like a funeral home than a counseling practice – services are not clearly outlined
