Episode 239 Ethics of Marketing- Why You Must Be Marketing Your Practice
Startup Nation, Meet:
Colleen Hilton has been a practicing clinician for 15 years. Founder & CEO of 3 companies including Thrivelution.
Most importantly, she's a proud Mom of two fierce young women!
Marketing and Advertising can be associated with being “salesy” and not aligning with our professional ethics.
Challenge that narrative. Start thinking of marketing as a tool, rather than something to be avoided.
Reframe marketing…you are providing valuable information and creating awareness.
Clients need us (now more than ever) and we have a responsibility to be visible, so they can get the care they need.
It is ethical to have a niche and ideal client. It keeps us within our scope and competence as therapaists.

If you are in private practice, you wear a lot of hats. And some of those hats are totally great. But some — like filing taxes and running payroll, for example — not so great. That’s where Gusto comes in. Gusto makes payroll, taxes, and HR actually easy for small businesses. Fast, simple payroll processing, benefits, and expert HR support all in one place. Gusto automatically pays and files your federal, state, and local taxes so you don’t have to worry about it. Plus they make it easy to add on health benefits and even 401(k)s for your team. So let them wear one of your many hats — you have better things to do. Listeners get three months free when they run their first payroll. Try a demo and see for yourself at gusto.com/pps.
