Social Media Strategies for Therapists


SKU: LD - 070 Category:


The benefits of marketing on social media for therapists are numerous. Even better, it is a free marketing resource! However, almost every therapist is on Instagram and Facebook, so how do we get engagement activity on your account above the others? In this workshop, we explore how social media can benefit your practice to include: referrals, networking, selling your products, speaking events, and more. We’ll cover specific social media platforms and their related marketing techniques that connect you to your ideal audience. Lastly, you’ll learn how to create content that resonates with your target audience members to help drive ongoing conversions and increase customer lifetime value.
