Top 10 Reasons Therapists Should Build Their Own Website

I can't count the amount of therapists who know they need a website, and want to find someone do it for them... for about $300... Do you really know someone who can write a book you would want to put your name to? Check out our article about why getting a website is like writing a book

I thought I would put my thoughts into a fun Top 10: 

  1. You need to understand what a website is- and sometimes doing is the best way. 
  2. You don't know what you don't know- building your own website gives you the ability to actually understand how they work and better advocate for yourself. 
  3. As a therapist, your voice is the most important part of your website. A geeky web designer, or your kid can't convey your voice- can they? 
  4. You need to get over your technophobia! 
  5. A good website needs to be dynamic- and be updated regularly- if you built it- you can understand it. 
  6. If you have the right platform- it really isn't that hard! (I know you don't believe me- but seriously!) 
  7. Aren't you tired of playing phone/email tag with your web person when you need to make a change? 
  8. You can learn about fun stuff like sending an email to post a blog- seriously- a blog can be as quick as sending an email! 
  9. Building a website will force you to further define your practice and may improve your confidence and your services to prospective and current clients. 
  10. You have a chance to streamline processes that are taking too much time and driving you nuts!
