  • The more people you get to visit your site who are looking for physiotherapists in your area, the more clients you will get. It is that easy!

Is there a difference between the Adwords and the SEO packages?

Adwords and SEO are both different marketing techniques that we use to increase the amount of new patients for your practice.

The SEO Package:
This package aims at producing results in the long term. Physio123 aims their efforts at improving the amount of traffic you get to your site by producing “organic” or “natural” search engine results. Over a longer period of time, more people will be directed to your site and this will ultimately lead to more clients.

The Adwords package:
This package is aimed at producing immediate results. When it is properly implemented, this type of campaign will automatically start drawing in clients to your practice. Adwords are those advertisements that you see on the right side of your search engine results and, when these are used in conjunction with the appropriate keywords, they can generate a lot of traffic to your site. We pay Google a certain amount for everyone that clicks on the ad and you reap the benefits.

Should I choose Adwords or SEO?
Both of these options can be very helpful in gaining new referrals to your site.

Why do I need SEO on my website?

SEO ensures that your website ranks high with search engines, especially when someone is searching for:
  • Your private practice
  • Keywords relating to your private practice (e.g physiotherapist in Pretoria).
  • Keywords relating to the services that you provide (e.g Acupuncuture, Massage, Hydrotherapy).
  • Keywords relating to the problems that you can assist with (e.g knee pain, back pain).
Studies conducted by Google have shown us that people automatically look to the natural results before they turn to others. This is shown by this heat map. The areas that are “hotter” are those that people turn to first and these are the natural results.

Our SEO package is set at a fixed price. You will begin by paying a setup fee, after which you will begin paying a certain fee every month. This fee will remain fixed so it doesn’t matter whether you have one person clicking on your links or thousands of people clicking on your links.

SEO optimisation will assist your website in showing up with a larger amount of websites on the internet, allowing it to rank higher with search engines when it comes to searches related to physiotherapy related searches within your area. As your ranking increases, your site will become difficult to compete with and this means that the amount of patients that are generated by your site will increase with every passing month.

Do I really need an Adwords Campaign?

There are 5 reasons why you need an Adwords campaign:
  • This type of campaign has the ability to produce results that are effective and immediate.
  • The advert for your website will pop up whenever someone types in keywords that are related to the services that you provide (e.g physiotherapy).
  • Advertising phrases can be worded to respond to certain phrases that are searched for on the net. Phrases such as “Physiotherapy and lower back pains in Pretoria” will be met with ads such as “Physiotherapy can help with lower back pains – Treatments in Pretoria”.
  • If your campaign is being managed properly, you can be assured that your ads will pop up.
  • You can decide whether you want your ads to be displayed only to people in your area so that you save on advertising costs.
