Getting found online isn’t all about ads and banners. Sometimes the best advertisement for your practice is simply sharing your wisdom! Be known for creating content that has value, not just a sales pitch.
Blogging is a highly effective way of getting found online because regular blogging boosts your recognition in search engines and increases your presence online! WordPress or Tumblr are great places to start a blog!
A good example of valuable content could be if you specialize in depression, for instance, and you write a blog on the connection between exercise and happiness. When writing new blogs, be sure to link words and phrases to relevant information in other blogs you’ve previously written. This helps with search engine optimization, SEO..

Another way to stay active producing valuable content could simply be sharing interesting posts loosely related to your field. If you read a great article about finding joy in life, or about how a pet helped a person through a tough time, those could be interesting to your consumer-base, so share them on your business’ social media accounts!
Marketing yourself online should also mean positioning yourself as a thought-leader in your field by putting your ideas and knowledge out there for people to learn from or dialogue with.
Making your business facebook page or website a place where people know they can find answers or be uplifted can help build your business! Even a regular stream of simple, encouraging tweets can help you get found online!
Before you start you’ll want to separate your personal social media from your business social media.
