Since the first lockdown in 2020 everyone seemed to be scrambling for space on the internet. Businesses were competing for what appeared to be real potential to advertise and sell online.
At Physio Fitness we have a good website and a reasonable social media presence. We have done plenty of Facebook advertising and we have done other online marketing, especially to our own client base. However, after making the brave decision to take on a new full-time physiotherapist in August last year we felt we needed to ‘up our game’ marketing wise. I wanted to appeal to a certain market and I took the decision to go head-first into a more traditional advertising route by using the excellent ‘Modern Magazines’.
Wow, has this worked! Robyn, our new physio, like all of us, is full and has a waiting list! We now need to take on another physio!
Alongside some traditional bill-board advertising, the magazines have been instrumental in a significant upsurge in new clients…we know because we monitor where they come from.
We Plan to advertise in Modern Magazines on an ongoing basis and would like to send out a massive thank you to Debbie, Stephen and the team.
Ferndown Business Network member Just ask Juli is a fantastic idea and is delivered with a high level of professionalism and has a service focused ethos. Juli has been working with me on a weekly basis for a few months and I am so pleased to have come across her when I did. Recently, I was required to step back from my business unexpectedly due to illness and Juli has been able to keep on top of the administrative tasks and keep the impact on my business to a minimum. Juli stepped in and with minimal training and direction she has understood exactly how she is best able to support my business. As I am now fully recovered we are exploring other skill sets that Juli has that I can also benefit from namely, marketing, training, client retention and compliance. Juli’s contribution to me and by business has truly improved my wellbeing, strengthen my business and has allowed my business to stretch to the next level which was not possible without her support.
I recently had some new business cards designed by another FBN member, Kath at Spike Design and asked Harry Bidgood at Anything Printed if he could sort out the printing at short notice as I was attending a national conference. Harry stepped up to the plate, worked with me with the proofs and delivered ahead of schedule and of the highest of standards. If you need any printing doing, Harry must be your first point of call. He works tirelessly, often against tight timelines imposed by people like me who do not take that into consideration when planning such things. I highly recommend Harry at Anything Printed.
