MARKETING




How will prospective clients find my listing with KidsTherapyFinder.com?

Great question!   We know that you want to get a good return on your investment.  That’s why KidsTherapyFinder.com has been submitted to all major search engines and is optimized (SEO). This helps our website become more discoverable. When potential customers search terms related to the services on our site in their area, they’ll have a better chance of discovering the KidsTherapyFinder.com website to find providers like you. We will soon start showing up in organic Google searches based on key word terms like "Child Play Therapist Therapy Near Me" and "In-Home Occupational Therapy".

We also promote KidsTherapyFinder.com in many ways (see next Q/A).


How do you promote KidsTherapyFinder.com?

Your listing with KidsTherapyFinder.com will enhance your marketing efforts as you widen your reach to your target market. Your KidsTherapyFinder.com listing is a great way to maximize your budgeting dollars. You don’t have to spend your time reaching out to all of these prospects individually, because KidsTherapyFinder.com does it for you! Instead, you can focus on what you do best, caring for kids and families. And, in a time when many marketing events have been cancelled and providers have less opportunities for face-to-face marketing with their target market KidsTherapyFinder.com can bridge the gap.

  • KidsTherapyFinder.com strategically promotes the site to the people in the community who will use it.  We actively engage with parents and professionals on social media through our dedicated pages on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Pinterest and our participation in various online communities. 
  • We partner with community professionals such as pediatricians, hospital social workers, school counselors, foster/adoption agencies and state workers who use KidsTherapyFinder.com to help parents find resources. 
  • We take advantage of advertising opportunities as exhibitors at local, state, and national events and conferences, where parents and providers will be.
  • KidsTherapyFinder.com is a community of trusted providers and programs.  Your listing makes it easy for other members of our community to quickly find and share your information as a referral for their clients. 

How do you rank with Google?

We realize ranking in Google is absolutely essential to an online business. That’s why we have invested in hiring an experienced SEO team to get us ranked quickly and to maintain our SEO hold. SEO rules change month to month by Google so we have hired these certified experts to keep us up to date with the changes and make sure our website and our providers stay highly visible in searches.

 In the meantime, as mentioned above, we are doing a lot of grassroots marketing. Our company was founded by a social worker and play therapist with intimate knowledge of the pediatric mental health field and who has developed strong connections with other professionals in pediatric mental health and wellness across the US who are enthusiastic about our mission. For example, we have added two great experts from to our panel “Ask Our Experts” who are nationally recognized. And we are aggressively reaching out to potential referral sources.


How many site visitors are you getting per month?

We realize that having new and returning parents and professionals to find providers like you on KidsTherapyFInder.com is essential to our mission and to our paying providers. We are a relatively new company but have a strong Facebook following.

We are doing a lot of grassroots marketing to get the word out about our site, such as partnering with social workers, case managers and pediatricians who are sharing our site with their clients.

And because we are new, as a founding member, you get to take advantage of our very low listing fees.   Once our ranking skyrockets later this year, the cost to join our site will increase as well. However, if you sign up now, you lock in your low membership profile for life, with no contract.


GETTING TECHNICAL




What if I am not tech savvy?
