Being a physical therapist can be a very spiritually fulfilling job. After all, helping people regain full use of their limbs and bodies after injuries and accidents gives them a new lease on life, one they could only have achieved with your help.
But while the gratitude of your patients does add to your career satisfaction, financial rewards are also important. If you are a physical therapist, there are many additional ways for you to make money – and a large number of these opportunities can be opened up to you by getting a domain name and a blog.
With those two elements, you’ll suddenly find yourself open to and gaining from a large number of benefits, both financial and professional.
1. Create A Good And Long Lasting Reputation Online
In many professions, having a great reputation goes a long way towards ensuring success. Within these professions, word of mouth is paramount and the more people that know you and your work, the better it is for business.
One great way for you to enhance your reputation is to set up an online blog devoted towards your profession. Blogging offers you the opportunity to ‘toot your own horn’ without overtly selling yourself through advertising.
It also allows you to build trusting relationships with your visitors by providing useful and valuable information on physical therapy through your blog posts and website in general. Ultimately, being online gives you and your services an opportunity to be seen and noticed all over the world, over time forging a valuable reputation that will spill over onto your offline work.
2. Create Business Opportunities
Aside from building up a distinct reputation for yourself online, your blog at your personalized domain can create a multitude of financial opportunities for you. By adding just a few elements to your blog – such as an integrated shopping cart that will allow your visitors to pay you using their credit cards – you can certainly start to earn money by providing information online.
For example, one way for you to provide information in return for money is by creating an e-newsletter for your visitors. Thus, any of your visitors who wish to have useful and important information sent to them directly to their inbox can sign up as a member of your newsletter by paying you a monthly subscription fee.
And in return for their monthly subscription, all you have to do is send out e-mails filled with your expertise (such as tips or tricks towards preventing physical injuries etc.) daily or weekly, depending on how much your charge. The more you charge, naturally the more valuable and regular the information you will be expected to provide.
Another way to make money is by writing eBooks. Simply condense a large amount of your expertise on a specific subject into an electronic book format (a PDF document, for example) and sell them to the visitors on your website for a fee. After all, people who visit your website are certainly interested in your services, so who better to sell your eBooks to?
There are certainly many advantages for you to provide your knowledge and services as a physical therapist online. And the sooner you get your domain, the better your chances of securing a domain that is your very own name!
