I often see clients in my practice that are struggling to cope with the changes that come with an injury. These can include loss of function, change of roles, thoughts of an injury or accident, or stress on relationships. There have been times when some of my clients have been waiting for professional counselling services to begin, and I have needed something in the meantime to help them - a tool that I can help them access to provide some interim support. Well I found something and I was very excited.

One of the challenges I frequently hear from allied health practitioners is the ability to feel comfortable on the topic of client fees. Therapists (often those that are sole practitioners, or staff working in outreach, or satellite clinics) sometimes feel awkward when there is no ‘barrier’ between them and the patient in terms of cash handling; and when they have treated a client, to then take money and ask them to book in again. Can you relate to this?

Having a plan for your marketing is important, it helps you ensure your money is going to good use, but the planning process itself helps you learn about the different forces and factors that may affect your success. Writing and researching for your marketing plan gives you the chance to learn about your industry, and allows you to work out strategies, and set specific goals, and timeframes for achieving them.  One of the hardest parts is knowing where to start?!  For those who are not sure where to begin to create a marketing plan, I have developed 7 steps to help you.

There is a quote by Steve Jobs “You can’t just ask customers what they want and then try and give that to them. By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new”.

This can be applied to our practice in allied health care and suggests that providing services and making decisions based solely on the feedback of your patients or clients is a recipe for failure.

But what are the reasons why this approach is not considered best practice?
