Getting clients to want to rebook is one of the most important business skills you’ll ever develop as a solo practitioner.
While we often focus on how to find new clients, the truth is it is much easier to retain a client you already have than to find a new one. In fact, not only do happy existing clients book their own appointments, they often become a source of referrals too.
So in today’s podcast episode, the fourth in our series on building a strong private practice, we’re focusing on how to retain clients and get them to want to rebook. It’s not just about how good your treatment/class is! Yes, being excellent at what you do is a key part, but it isn’t the most essential part of building up a regular client list. Getting to know people and building a real relationship is where it’s at.

- How to followup with clients when they don’t rebook;
- How to create a memorable environment for your clients;
