A good percentage of my clients have found me themselves on the internet. One client said it took him all of 15 minutes from the time he started looking for a therapist to the time we had talked and set an appointment. He loved it. "Self-surfing" provides people with the opportunity to research and find a therapist that fits their particular taste and requirements, without having to talk to anyone else about their personal problems. It's a terrific use of the internet.
You might be interested in knowing that I got a media request from a magazine health editor - and she got my name from your Canadian Therapists' website.
Being anxious about creating a professional website for the first time, John immediately put me at ease with his expertise, approachability and eagerness to please. In the process of working together, he was always prompt in his responses to my e-mails. With regards to the final product, I received numerous compliments on the professional quality of my site. Within the first two weeks of its release, I received a number of inquiries from potential clients. John was a pleasure to work with & I would highly recommend him to others.
Many therapists balk at spending the money (I know from friends who are horrified with money I spend for 2 websites), but they don't realize the returns they will get. Mine have more than paid for themselves every year. I get more business from my websites than from my more expensive yellow pages ad.
