How to Make a Million Dollars a Year Online as a Physical Therapist

How to Make a Million Dollars a Year Online as a Physical Therapist

I recently hit the One Million dollar mark for a 12 month rolling year in my coaching business, and I wanted to share some behind the scenes with you!

I use SamCart, Click Funnels, and some other avenues to collect revenue, but I will show you my SamCart account today. 

I’ll explain the different types of monthly recurring revenue I use and why that’s so important to the growth of an online business. I didn’t start that in my business until 2018!  

I talk about how I presented different offers and then eventually changed things based on feedback. What is important to remember is you have to be willing to change what you’re doing based on what people need and people want. 

If something is causing you stress, it may not be worth it, even if it’s making you money. 

I like to use SamCart to manage my MRR. It’s so much easier than using Stripe or Click Funnels. If you want to get started with SamCart, use this affiliate link!

Online Course: 8 ways to make more money

The number one mistake people make is the build the online course before the sell it. This is how you make mistakes! Sell it first so you can give people what they ACTUALLY want.  

  1. Make more offers of your online course

That means as soon as someone opts it to something, give them the next logical step. The more offers you make the more opportunities people will have to purchase from you.   

2. Show Proof 

People want so see something works BEFORE they buy! Show testimonials. Show them how you have done it before.  People need to know it can be real for them. 

3. Build Scarcity

Show people that your time or the product is limited. Don’t show manufactured scarcity, show them something is limited in order to get them off the fence. 

4. Raise the price of your online course

It seems obvious, right? If you tell people about the price increase, you’re also creating a type of scarcity and can give people the incentive to get off the fence and take action.  

5. Run The 5 Day Sales Sequence

This is a trend and true sequence I have personally used and many of my clients have used to talk about a bonus ending or a price increasing, but it tells people it’s time to buy.

6. Automate Your Offer

 Once you have your proven offer, it’s time to make it evergreen. You can automate the process to make money while you’re not even working. We use the PT Email Engine for these automations. But you don’t want to automate it until you know it works. 

7. Make it sustainable: Monthly Recurring Revenue

This is where the real magic happens. There are many ways to generate monthly recurring revenue, and the best way for someone else may not be the best way for you. 

8. Hire a Coach 

Working with different coaches has been the thing to accelerate my earnings the most. I didn’t get here by myself. I leveraged coaching to help me fast track my learning and growth. And that’s what you should be doing, too!

By the way I’m looking for 5 PTs who want to make 6- figures in their online businesses in the next year. Just DM me or comment below with the word “$100K” and I’ll send you the details.

6 Indisputable Traits of Successful PT Business Owners

There are traits that every successful physical therapy business owner has. I’ve seen it time and time again! Keep reading to see how many you already exhibit. And then make a plan to get the rest. 

Trait #1) Successful business owners know their why and purpose. Start by getting clear on your why. It’s easy to lose momentum and motivation when things get hard if you aren’t clear on your why.

Trait #2) Successful business owners surround themselves with winners. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying you’re the sum of the 5 people you are around the most. Well, that’s true in business, as well!

Trait #4) Successful business owners are quick to ask for help. They are also quick to share their wins and lessons. You have to be willing to check you ego at the door. If you let your ego make decisions, you will only hurt yourself. 

Trait #5) Successful business owners play the long game. They know the returns usually don’t come immediately. They are always looking five to ten years ahead. Next, they always consider how their current actions are supporting their future goals. 

Trait #6) Successful business owners are quick to take action and execute. Even if you get down the wrong path, you can always course correct. If you sit around and wait for everything to be perfect, you will be waiting forever. Make a decision and see how it plays out.

how to scrub your email list

How to Clean an Email List

Do you have a neglected email list or have you purchased an existing email from someone else? I explain why you need to perform routine maintenance on your list.

If your email list is stagnant and unresponsive, it will lower deliverability, or even worse, getting marked as spam. Recently, I had the opportunity to acquire an existing email list. I take you through the exact steps of what I did to revitalize it and introduce myself to the subscribers.

I moved the list over to the PT Email Engine. We created The PT Email Engine to be a one-stop-shop to maximize your email list. I could’t just move them over without their knowledge or consent.

NEVER subscribing emails to a list without consent!

I use a “9 word email” to reach out to all of the subscribers to start warming up the list. From there. we have different strategies and automations that will trigger depending on how they respond.

If you’re interested in learning more about how we leverage the power of the PT Email Engine to get the most of our email lists, DM to learn more!

The 5-Step Coronavirus Business Launch Plan

I launched my practice at the bottom of the recession in 2008, and you can absolutely launch yours during this Coronavirus pandemic.

Today, I wanted to share the five things you need to do to launch your practice now.

Commit

Just commit to doing it. Don’t dance around the idea or wait until the “time is right.” There is no better time than now.

Patients Don’t Have the Same Problems

…But you can still help them. During the Coronavirus pandemic, people’s problems have changed. They still have back pain, but it could be for a different reason now. Maybe they haven’t worked out during the quarantine and are suddenly starting again, etc.

Your goal should be to get those people to choose you over a crowded medical facility. You need to be their solution.

Money Is Still Flowing

First off, get comfortable talking about money. Everyone is afraid that there is no more money, but that is definitely not true. Zoom has a ton of money right now. Amazon has more than they know what to do with. Remember that money is a tool for doing good. It’s okay to ask for money in exchange for your help.

Use a Proven Formula

Why re-invent the wheel? Use my formula and improve upon it. Do me one better. Go out and create an even bigger impact in the world.

Get a Business Coach

My belief is that you need a coach and community to keep you accountable. Otherwise, you’re going to still be waiting for “someday.”

You spend a thousand dollars for a con-ed class, yet you hesitate to pay the same for a coaching program? Learning business, marketing and sales will help you grow so much more than having a few additional letters after your name.

Just like you had a clinical instructor for clinical skills, you should have a business instructor for business skills.

You’re Not “Too Green” to Start a Physical Therapy Business

I was listening to a podcast recently where the “expert” was basically telling the listeners to stop trying because they weren’t ready and were “too green.”

Today, I wanted to share how I feel about that.

People tell new-grad physical therapists all the time that they don’t have enough experience. They get told that they can’t start their own practice because there won’t be a clinical mentor in the room, as if they are dangerous.

Hell, new grads will be told they can’t start their own business, even if they have prior business experience!

You have everything you need to be successful with you right here, right now. You are not “too green.”

If you’re only hearing doubt, get those people out of your life. Surround yourself with people who support you and tell you that success is just around the corner… because it is.

Speaking of surrounding yourself with supporters, have you joined The CashPT Nation yet?

It’s Not Enough to Create a Job for Yourself

I always hear from people who say they love being physical therapists and getting their patients results, but that there’s no way they can do that in the job they are working in.

They may feel forced to open their own practice, but don’t know the first thing about starting a business. So, their option for burnout may be to quit the profession entirely.

There are people out there who need your expertise. The best way to maximize your impact is to assemble a team around you.

Don’t be afraid to build a business that can be sold one day. It’s daunting, but…

…it’s all about turning that job you built yourself into an empire.

If you’re looking for additional guidance during this tough time, consider joining The CashPT Nation!

What Are You Waiting For? Your Time Is Now!

Right now is your time.

It’s either your time to grow and thrive, or it’s your time to quit.

That’s what the world is saying right now. Are you ready to quit, or are you ready to knock this out of the park?

Right now is a test to see if you can figure it out. Are you truly in this for the long haul? If you are, you’ll have to get creative. You may not be able to come within six feet of your patients, but you can still help them. People need you.

If your schedule has cleared out, think of it as extra time to work on the thing you’ve always been meaning to do. Work on building up the foundation of your business so that when this is all over, you’ll be even stronger for it.

This is also an opportunity to use telehealth to teach. If you can solve problems, you’ll come out on top.

You get to decide how you react and grow from this. So, what are you going to do?

What Is a Mastermind Group and Why Should I Join One?

In today’s post, I wanted to share what a “mastermind” truly is, my journey with them, and why they can be so beneficial for your business!

Let’s jump into it.

People have had questions as to what a mastermind is, so I wanted to address those today. A lot of people will say that they already belong to a “mastermind” and want to know the difference between mine and whoever else’s.

First of all, I’ve been in two different masterminds over the course of about three years now: the 7-Figure Formula Mastermind and the Empire Mastermind.

The first year I started working with my current coach Bedros, my consulting business grew 250%. I put in the work, but he gave me the guidance. This last year the growth wasn’t necessarily monetary, but in time. I was able to spend over 80 days out of the office with my family.

Because of the huge successes I’d made in mastermind groups, I decided to start my own.

My current CashPT Platinum Mastermind is very different from what we first launched…

We first launched a $97/month program that gave you access to a Facebook group and a course. Then, when I saw people weren’t getting what they needed, I raised the price to $397 to give them more coaching time. That, unfortunately, didn’t work either. People still didn’t show up to calls or participate within the group. And so, I gave up that extra $30,000 in recurring revenue. I knew that with that model, I still couldn’t help people the way they needed to be.

So how is my current Platinum Mastermind program different? My students pay $1,500 a month. They get access to calls with me and the group, three in-person meetings a year, and all of my programs and courses.

Here are some ways to tell if you’re in a mastermind or not:

You’re NOT in a mastermind if…

  • You’re investing less than $1,500 a month
  • You have access to just a Facebook group or course
  • You work with a coach, but don’t have one-on-one access to them
  • It’s just a group that cheers you on and doesn’t hold you accountable

You ARE in a mastermind if you…

  • Meet together on a regular basis
  • Get coaching in a group so that multiple people’s problems are solved at once
  • Have access to a coach who can show you what you need and help you with the 10x problems, not just the small “Which intake software should I use?” problems
  • Get shit done!

My mastermind members get one year’s worth of results in 90 days. If that’s something you’d be interested in, learn more here!
