Physio123 FAQs

General questions

How many new patients will I get per month?

This will depend on the package you choose, the services you provide and the location of your practice. In our experience practices will notice an immediate increase in new enquiries and new patients. Practices will see a further increase after a few months once their website has become established.

I've found the right package, how do I pay you?

Our preferred method of payment is via our secure website, which accepts all major credit/debit cards. Alternative payment methods can be arranged on request.

I already have a website I'm happy with can you help me get to the top of the search engine results?

Yes. As well as designing websites, Physio123 specialise in getting websites to the top of search engines. Please see our SEO packages.

Do I have to choose the add-ons I want straight away, or can I add them at a later date?

You can add them at any time.

I've been with you for two years, can I upgrade to your PhysioTwo package?

Yes, please ask about our discount for our loyal customers.

What happens if I don't want to continue for whatever reason?

All our packages have no contract, allowing you to cancel at any time, without incurring any charges.

I already own two physio clinics, but I am not running at full capacity, will you be able to help?

Yes, Physio123 specialise in generating new business for existing practices. We can create your online presence through website development, graphic design and online marketing. Using brand management campaigns and promotion we can increase your offline presence. Our services will put you ahead of your competition.

I am interested in starting up in private practice, is it possible to try out your service?

Yes, Physio123 understand that many people would like to try out our services before choosing a package. We therefore allow therapists to try out our PhysioOne package free for 3 months.

If I assess a patient that I need advice on, can I ring you for help?

Physio123 is an online marketing & development service and, therefore, does not give any clinical advice.

I'd like to go into private practice but I'm worried about not getting any patients.

This is a common fear that prevents many people going into private practice. Setting up in business is never without risk, however it is very rare for a physiotherapist to struggle to find patients. Provided you don't live in a remote area, and you're willing to work hard, with our help we are confident of your success.

I signed up with you 6 months ago, but have decided to work abroad, can I sell my practice?

Physio123 allow free transfer of your account to the new owner.

Consultation, design & development FAQs

How long will it take for you to design my website?

This depends largely on the package you select. Typically PhysioOne package takes one/two week, PhysioTwo; two weeks, and PhysioThree; three weeks. This process can vary depending on the specifics of your package and any changes you wish to make.

Can I write my own content for my website?

Yes. We send you our customer requirements form for you to fill in. This form provides the design team with all the information they will need to construct your site. You will be able to decide what pages you want, the content you want and select any add-ons you require. You can also suggest colour schemes, logo ideas, and any other information you think is relevant. Obviously the more information you provide, the better your website will be.

Can I include pictures of my staff and clinic?

Yes, if you have any pictures that you would like included in your site, you can send them to us. More details will be included in the customer requirements form.

I already have a logo, can I use this?

Yes you can. Existing physio practices usually have an established identity which would be lost if they changed their logo. We would be happy to improve or edit you current logo should you wish.

I've seen a website that I really like, would you be able to design me a similar website?

Yes, in fact we would prefer it if you did this as it allows our design team to see exactly what you like.

I don't like the colours you've used, can you change them?

Yes you can. We ask about colour schemes on the customer requirements form but during the design process you can change your mind as many times as you like.

Why do you need my personal contact details?

Our design team may wish to contact you to discuss your website.

What happens if I move house or change my contact details?

Physio123 will change these vital details for free at any time.

I've just completed an acupuncture course, and would like to offer this service to my customers. Can you add an acupuncture page to my website?

Yes. This can be provided for free during the design process if it is within your permitted page allowance. Once the design process is complete, you will be charged an additional £30 for any extra pages. We will also make sure this page links to and from any other relevant pages.

Will you display any kind of adverts on my website?

No, Physio123 is a premium service and therefore we don't display any form of adverts.

Can I have both a .com and .co.uk domain name?

Yes. Additional domain names are available from £20 per year.

Will my website be available 24/7 every day of the year?

I already have a website, can Physio123 help me to promote my website?

Yes. As well as designing websites, Physio123 specialise in getting websites to the top of search engines. Please see our SEO packages.

How does search engine marketing generate more business for my practice?

The objective of search engine marketing is to drive more people to your website. Simply, the more visitors your website gets, the more likely your practice is to generate new patients.

Consider these facts:
  • In 2009 there was on average 301,000 searches in the UK every month for physiotherapy related services.
  • When looking for a physio most people now turn to searching the internet.
  • The more visits your website gets from people in your area looking for a physio, the more patients you will get. It's that simple!
Millions of people in the UK are going online looking for answers to health problems. So your practice needs to be positioned high on the search engines to drive these people to your website where they can learn how you will solve their problems.

Do physio practices really get more business with search engine marketing?

Yes. The Bottom line is, if your practice is not coming up for therapy related searches in your area you are losing new patients to your competitors.

What is the difference between the SEO package and the Adwords package?

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

SEO package:
Our SEO package provides long term results. Physio123 will improve the volume and quality of traffic to your website from search engines via "natural" or "organic" search results. This means that over time more and more people looking for physiotherapists in your area will end up viewing your website and you will get more patients.

Adwords package:
Adwords provide immediate results for practices. Done correctly, an Adwords campaign will give your practice an immediate increase in new patients. Adwords are the ads you see in the top and right hand column of the search engine results page. Physio123 bid on "keywords" that we know your target market type in the search bar when they are looking for physiotherapy services or have a problem that a physio can help with. When someone clicks on your ad we pay Google a given bid amount, and the visitor will be automatically taken to your website.

SEO or Adwords?
Both are helpful and will compliment eachother if done correctly, and provide your practice with a steady stream of new patients.

Why should I SEO my website?

The reason you want to SEO your website is so that your practice comes at the top of the search engine results page when someone searches for:
  • Your practice
  • Keywords that relate to your practice (eg your name/practice name)
  • Keywords that relate to the services you offer (acupuncture, hydrotherapy, massage)
  • Keywords that relate to problems you help (eg sports injuries, back pain, knee pain)
Google's studies tell us that people look at the natural results first. Take a look at this heat map. The "hotter" areas are where people fix their eyes on the page. As you can see, people tend to look at the natural results region of the results page.



The cost of SEO is a fixed cost. You pay a setup and monthly fee and your costs do not increase whether one person clicks on your link or ten thousand people click on your search link.

If your website is well optimised it will show up on a large number of other websites. This has a snowball effect and your website will gather momentum and rank higher and higher for therapy related searches in your area. This will make it a very established website and difficult for other therapy practices to compete against. This will also mean that the amount of new patients generated from your website will increase month by month.

Why should I have an Adwords campaign?

Here are five reasons why you should have an Adwords campaign:
  • Adwords campaigns produce immediate results.
  • Your website advert will show up when someone in your location types in a broad search phrase like "physiotherapy", "physio", etc.
  • Specific advertising phrases can be displayed in response to a specific search phrase.
  • With a well managed campaign you can almost guarantee that your ads will show up.
  • You can choose to have your ads display only to people in your practice's local radius. This is a huge advantage as it will limit your financial outlay.

Why should I choose Physio123 to manage my SEO / Adwords campaign?

As with our website and marketing services, there are many great reasons why you should choose Physio123 for your search marketing needs.
  • Our success is your success - We don't commit you to contract agreements therefore to keep your business we need to continue to generate new patients for your practice.

What will my ads say?

Why is there a monthly fee?
