Portsmouth Therapy? Local Advertising!
Advertise Prominently on the most Portsmouth-focussed, Therapy-Centred, Popular Website of Hampshire!
The Marple Cross Centre is Portsmouth’s Centre for Counselling & Therapy. As a practising Portsmouth-based therapist, it makes sense to advertise your private therapy service to the widest, most-targeted local audience as quickly as possible.
This is the strength in advertising with the Marple Cross Centre’s website .. and you don’t have to be a member of Marple Cross to advertise your therapy services with us*.
Why Therapists Must Advertise…
- Make your therapy services seen to a wide-but-local audience.
- Make yourself visible so that potential clients get to see you to choose you.
- Promote your special offers in a timely and fast manner.
- Get your time-limited discounts known about within in hours (rather than days or months).
Advertising Pitfalls to be Wary of…
- To be wary of “national” directory websites: checking that there is a strong, local area section where your practice will get sufficient focus.
- To be careful of services like Yell.com – which base their profits more on bulk/national purchases, and less on small business local advertising.
- To be mindful of advertising on professional body websites which do not provide statistics on how your profile is matching queries in the locations that you actually practice.
Advertising your practice on the Marple Cross website gets your therapy practice noticed in the Portmouth area and can increase your monthly income by simply attracting new local business.
Potential clients need to know what promotions you’re offering – and what distinguishes you from all the other therapists in your area.
Compare our rates and local prominence with, say, Counselling Directory who charge £85 for a three-month, location-placed positioning of a summary of your existing profile (i.e. not a separate, full-page advert; not promoted on the site’s front page and not promoted on all inner-pages).The Marple Cross Centre’s comparable service is 13% less expensive … with significantly higher Portsmouth-visibility and greater regional prominence.
