There are countless therapist directories for consumers, but where do professionals go to find colleagues to refer to? The best resource for finding and keeping professional contacts is LinkedIn. Follow these tips to optimize your profile and appeal to mental health practitioners and the greater professional community.
- Make sure you have a professional photo (we’ve also mentioned how important this is for your website and all other marketing materials, so you really can’t lose with a great head shot).
- Join some groups. There are so many LinkedIn groups of like-minded professionals, make sure you’re getting in on some of that conversation.
- Get in on the action. Don’t just browse; create some content, engage in conversation, and post interesting articles to get yourself noticed.
