-Joe Borders, MFT -July 13, 208 It's been about a month since we launched SacWellness! Given that I'm such a sucker for statistics, here's some facts about our first month in business: 1,200 visitors! In our first month we had…
SacWellness can benefit your therapy practice in many ways. Lots of people are looking for therapists on the internet nowadays. SacWellness can help with your search engine rankings, but the main function of listing on SacWellness is to get your information to people looking for therapists in Sacramento, Davis, Auburn, El Dorado Hills, Elk Grove, and all the places in between. In this post we’re going to take a look at how you can see exactly what SacWellness is doing for you to this effect.
Your SacWellness Dashboard
Your SacWellness account includes access to lots of statistics about your listing’s performance on the site. To get to this information you need to log into your account and then visit your dashboard, which you can find at the top right or your screen after logging in.
When you get to your dashboard you will see all of this stuff:
These are all of the statistics and notification settings for your listing…..I have really high stats on my listing because all of the testing we’ve been doing on the site. Let’s go over these.
- Visits To Your Website tells you how many times people have visited your website through your listing. This does not include any visits to your website that are made through any guest blog posts you may have published on SacWellness. Website visits are one of the most valuable conversions of your listing. People visiting your website want to know more about you, are more likely to contact you, and have chosen you over other therapists. Also website visits are likely one of the biggest ways your listing can help your website rank higher in search engines.
- Total Phone No. Clicks tells you how many times people have clicked on the phone number that you have posted on your listing. This is theoretically the number of times people have called you from your listing. I say theoretically because people using devices other than a phone could conceivably click on your phone number accidentally or thinking it will take them to your site, or copy the number. In general though this is how many times people have called you.
- Total Leads: This is the number of times people have sent you a message through the contact form on your listing. Every time someone send you a message in this way, it will be delivered to you through the email address you have linked to your account. Be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contact list to avoid any of these going to spam.
- Total Views tells you the number of times someone has viewed your SacWellness listing.
******After deploying this feature we have realized that a sizeable portion of therapists have separate professional phone lines that may not be set up to receive texts. We are currently working on creating a solution that will allow you to identify an alternative phone number that you would like to receive text alerts at. This should be rolled out by 12/6/18*****
So there you have it! All of these statistics refer to the total amount of time your listing has been published on SacWellness. We currently don’t have any way for users to select specific time periods for their statistics. However, if we do have a way to get all of that information on our end. So if you’re ever interested in knowing your stats in a specific time frame contact us and we’ll help you out! ^_^
SacWellness is Working! ^_^
I’m not sure when you’re reading this post, but when it was published on November 22, 2018 SacWellness had only been live for 6 months and we were very excited about these stats! We offered everyone free listings for the first 10 months of the site being live. We didn’t want to charge people until the site started actually serving its designated function. As of the publishing date of this post, we feel we have reached a place where we will feel good about charging people for SacWellness when the time comes in April 2019. We have been spending a lot of time and money on programming the site over the last several months and will soon be “finished” with that. At that point we will be diverting our our resources towards advertising. SacWellness is doing well and will only continue to grow! We are so happy with all of this! ^_^
