Recommended Services (To Make Your Life Easier)
Even if you’re not computer savvy- you can create a great looking site quickly, easily and cheaply with Weebly.
“Website creation made easy” is Weebly’s tagline; for good reason. Weebly is an easy drag & drop interface that is the easiest way to create a professional looking website.
While you can do a free site/domain with them, it will be for example,www.yourname.weebly.com. I highly recommend spending a few extra dollars and actually purchasing a domain name. It’s much more professional looking!
FYI - This very website was created with Weebly. It's cheap and easy. Two things I love ;-)
If you're looking for the easiest and most affordable platform to design a fantastic private practice website, choose Wix.
The software is intuitive. It's as easy to use as Microsoft Word (but looks much prettier!)
Make sure you have a picture of yourself on your website. When clients / parents / families are researching professionals to work with loved ones, they often look for people who look, "nice and smart."
A simple photograph of yourself can create trust from the very beginning.
WebPT (formerly Therabill)
WebPT is an online documentation, scheduling and billing tool that helps keep you organized and compliant.
WebPT was created for therapists by therapists and boosts ease of use and affordability.
To learn more about WebPT, book an online demo to see if it's right for you.
Learn a skill, technique or treatment method (and earn some CEU's at the same time!)
