Using Public Forms

April 09, 2021

While clients are searching for the most suitable practitioner for their needs, practitioners should be taking the same approach by filtering prospective clients by asking: Is this client the right fit for my specialty and approach?

One way you can refine your new client screening process is by using a Practice Better Public Form. You can proactively filter prospective clients before speaking with them by creating an application and/or readiness form and sharing it on your website. This is a great way to determine if clients are the right fit for your practice or to preemptively set your professional tone and attitude before speaking with them. The public form can include purposeful questions that will provide just enough information to help you determine your ideal client or if you should partake in a Discovery Call with an applicant. This will streamline your assessment process and can save you a lot of time.

For example, aside from basic demographic information, you can create a meaningful application form by including the following questions:

  1. What are your main health concerns?
  2. Why do you want to work with me?
  3. Have you tried any other techniques, diets, behavioral changes in the past, to reach your goals?
  4. On a scale of 1-10, how ready and willing are you to make some fundamental changes to your lifestyle habits?

Public forms can be shared directly with prospective clients as a URL, or added to your website as a button or widget.
