Dear Health Practitioner,
The Wellness Directory and Health e-Results are delighted to announce the imminent Grow Your Health Practice workshops to share today's most effective Google, Facebook, YouTube and outsourcing strategies for building awareness of your treatments and attracting more 'engaged' visitors to your website.
Having spoken to over 2,000 NZ health practitioners last year, our web team has supported and helped practitioners to overcome the following everyday web frustrations;
• You find the web overwhelming and it's easier to stay away or do the absolute minimum
• You know being online is important but your practice is mainly word-of-mouth
• You're just too busy to focus on building a strong consistent web presence?

Don't Take Our Word For It .. Read What Practitioners Think About Past Events:
"Such a refreshing Kiwi vibe as so many of these types of things are high powered pressure events urging you to buy, buy. Your low key approach delivered valuable content that made me feel all were genuinely interested in helping the participants. Truly appreciated as I feel free to accept knowing that my questions will be answered and advice given - It inspires confidence and generates real interest in supporting your company and it's products and services. Bravo!"
(Remedial Massage Therapist)
"I am very glad to have made the time to attend this event. I am fairly new into the health industry, having been in business since 2010, as a remedial massage therapist. When the course information came through, it was very timely as I had by then got to the stage in my business where I was ready to take the next step to really market my business to encourage growth and to reach my goals.
What I mainly got from this event was a much better understanding of the importance of outsourcing where necessary. I also got a better understanding of Google and how it works and changes every day, and the importance of being aware of this and keeping up with Google to maximise your presence. I also got some great tips on how to use Facebook effectively."
(Therapeutic & Sports Massage Therapist)
"I found last years workshop extremely helpful to me and it most certainly provided me with the “rocket” I needed. I have most definitely been underselling my services, and have since increased my prices – and my existing clients are all happy to pay the extra thanks to your advice. Samantha has been lovely to deal with, and I am currently working on my mini-website to promote my business. I am looking forward to seeing the results when this is up and running.
Thanks to all who spoke at the workshop – it definitely assisted in giving me the incentive to help my massage business grow! I would recommend your workshops to any practitioners. The Wellness Directory team are very helpful and genuinely eager to help your business grow."
(Therapeutic Massage Therapist)
"It was a really good workshop. Very informative and very interesting. The handouts were also very helpful."
(Master NLP Practitioner)
"We had a presentation made to us by (the business directory) Gopher which was useful although I found your event to be much more helpful in terms of how to promote myself and therapy information on the web."
"I wasn't sure whether to come to this event or not today however I'm very glad I did!!"
"Thank you so much for the workshop. It's the best investment I've made in my business promotion in a long time. Really appreciated your feedback on my current promo material - increased my confidence in what I am doing and also pointed me where to make a few small 'tweaks'. So helpful.
The workshop was interesting, well paced and above all practical and usable. Thank you both so much. So glad I went and really look forward to using your help to maximise my web presence. I am busy recommending you to all my colleagues!"
