Many people think of blogging as sharing thoughts and ideas with other users in a forum-like style. Although there are some blogs that fit this style, that isn’t what you should be using them for. Content is king and blogs are an excellent way to share educational content, resources for families, and facts about your industry that most users aren’t familiar with.
By posting blogs monthly, you give yourself an advantage over competitors in a variety of ways. From improving Google Ranking to moving leads further down the buyer’s journey, blogs can improve your practice’s marketing efforts all across the board. We’ve listed a few advantages of blogging below.
There are many ways that you should be optimizing your site to appear higher in search results. Having content on the page simply isn’t good enough. In today’s world, you’ll need to also make sure you have at least 300 words, have at least 1% of the content consist of a keyword you want users to search for, and many other aspects.
In our experience, writing with some of these factors in mind can be helpful, but it’s best to write content and optimize it afterward. You may have to make some compromises in terms of word choice, but you’ll find that optimized content performs much better than content that hasn’t been modified for Google’s strict standards.

Typically, most of the users that come into contact with your practice on the internet aren’t ready to make a commitment yet. You’ll need to put out high quality content that interests users and promotes the idea of moving forward in their decision making process. There are types of content for each stage of the buyer’s journey, and you should make sure to focus a decent amount of it on users who are new to the idea of counseling and therapy.
