Boulder, CO (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
Just in the last decade, we have seen a transformation in the way we communicate, interact and even do business. With the increased use of the Internet and the skyrocketing demand for smartphones and tablets, having an effective online presence isn’t just recommended, it is essential to succeed in this competitive market.
It only took the Internet 4 years to reach 50 million users compared to the 38 years it took the radio and 13 years for television. Now the Internet is the first place a person turns to for information. The beauty of an effective website, is it can offer limitless opportunities for practice owners. Major benefits of an effective websites include:
1. Wide outreach – With over 2.4 billion Internet users, the Internet is where people are turning to for schools, shopping, community and even therapy. In fact, over 96% of people are already searching online for Therapists each month!
2. Cost effective – If leveraged effectively, a website can offer infinite possibilities for practices 24/7. So while therapists are with a client, on vacation, eating dinner or even sleeping, websites are still working making information and services available to clients at all times of the day.
3. Target Oriented – Search engine optimization is the process of improving traffic to websites and if done correctly, therapists can have their practices come up on major search engines, driving traffic directly to their practice.
4. Informative – Websites serve as a great resource tool for clients. Therapists can use this space to provide recommended readings, sell your books, and provide links to hot topics. The Internet is now the first place a person goes to for information, wouldn’t it be great if the first place they went was your website?
