Where family health care decision makers go first to find you

Creating a web page for your practice, using Facebook, Linkedin and other social media are sure ways to drive new client traffic your way. Want some tried and true (and pretty darn cheap) ideas on using social media to boost your clientele. Click the headers below to get started or enhance your Social Media presence:

Google Adwords Spend as much or as little as you want to get your message and information out to the public. You only pay when someone clicks on your ad. Here’s an overview of how Google Adwords works.

 

Facebook Fan Page  If you really want to leverage social networking and promote yourself, business or organization, then creating a Facebook Fan Page is a great way to go. You control the message and allow your “fans” to respond. You can even delete fan comments that are “unfortunate.” Remember, every time someone shares something from your fan page on their Facebook page, your audience goes up exponentially, meaning more people than you ever imagined are seeing your message and are becoming potential clients. Learn more about Facebook Fan Pages and get step by step directions on setting up your practice’s fan page.

 

LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with over 75 million members and growing rapidly. LinkedIn connects you to your trusted contacts and helps you exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with a broader network of professionals. Connect with professional sources of referrals and others who can help you advance your career

  • Notice Regarding AAMFT Bylaw Vote Taking Place Through August 15

    Dear CTAMFT Colleagues,

    Regarding the AAMFT by-law vote taking place this summer through August 15: 

    Many of you have asked us our opinions regarding the proposed AAMFT by-law changes.  Our division charter limits us as Connecticut Board members to follow AAMFT direction regarding voicing opinions about AAMFT matters. Therefore, we will share how either vote will be likely to play out in Connecticut:

    A "yes" vote would eliminate the Connecticut division by ending mandatory dues payments and division leadership, with a transition starting in January 2016. This will mean all leadership authority and fiscal decision-making will be centralized with the national organization with a focus on forming special interest groups. 

    In the event that CT MFTs choose not to fund local services in any respect, lobbying, employment advocacy, local conferences/CEUs and statewide student/new grad mentoring in Connecticut would end.

    We are optimistic, however, that local adaptations are possible, and will consider forming an organization independent from AAMFT to close any gaps in services. 

    A “no” vote would maintain mandatory local dues payments and fund the services that are currently in place in Connecticut until a new plan is accepted. If a plan for restructuring is re-drawn, we would advocate that it include specifics for all regions that AAMFT serves, regarding ways to:

    • maximize strengths to promote the MFT profession locally 
    • include regional leadership roles and information gathering  
    • address weaknesses and threats to the MFT profession  
    • incorporate fiscal plans for specific regional and lobbying initiatives  
    • incorporate service region culture and demographics
    • incorporate future service trends in the MFT profession

    We strongly encourage you to check for your AAMFT ballot and control number, emailed May 29, or vote via paper ballot before the vote ends August 15.  

    We fully support your vote based on your own interpretation of the abundant information shared.  For more information, feel free to call work numbers for Heather 203-438-3139 and Denise, at 860-486-2396.
