Fifteen Reasons to Join My Sports Map

Fifteen Reasons to Join My Sports Map


My Sports Map is a local sports directory listing clinics, coaches, consultants and companies who provide sports-related services. 


Our growing sports community has sports physios, sports therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, medics with expertise in sports medicine, psychologists, personal trainers, sports coaches and companies selling sports related products and technologies. The people listing with us offer services in the following areas; sports injury, sports massage, personal training, sports nutrition, sports coaching sports psychology and sports products and technology. 


It would be great if you could join us, and here are fifteen reasons why it is worth joining our fast-growing sports-related community.


#1. We help clients find you. We aim to rank highly on major search engines for people searching for sport-related services by expertise and location. Our most recent data showed that in December 2020 we were returned in google searches for 244 sport-related terms.  


#2. We are prominent in Google Search results. To illustrate in December 2020 some of the key search terms for which we were returned on the first page of google searches included: 'sports physio near me'; 'sports chiropractor near me'; sports osteopath near me'; sports massage therapist near me'; and sports podiatrist near me'. 


#3. We offer a great opportunity for people starting out. Listing on our directory is a very cost-effective way of gaining an immediate online presence for key search terms about sports-related services. Joining us gives you the equivalent of a great personal website at a fraction of the cost! Even better than that joining an established website like us means your business webpage benefits from the reputation and visibility we have established. 


#4. We can help well-established businesses consolidate existing online presence. Listing on our directory is an additional way for clients to find your services complementing your existing websites and social media presence. Don’t forget if clients cannot find your business on our directory, they will find your competitors – potentially costing you business.


#5.  You get data on your profile’s visibility and interaction with potential clients. You can see how many visits your site receives each month and what visitors do on visiting your profile. For example, do they visit your company website, phone your number using our one click to call function, or visit your social media pages? 


#6. You shine Individually. Your individual profile is searchable, and many individual profiles come up in searches for expertise and location (e.g., sports injury clinic Brecon). With over 40,000 google searches per second having an online presence is crucial for gaining clients. 


#7. Be part of a community. We aim to grow a community of people and companies offering sports-related services who can help each other grow and provide advice and support. For example, if you are a sports chiropractor who thinks a client would benefit from the advice of a sports nutritionist then you are part of a community that has that expertise. Similarly, if you are a sport physio who is after the expertise of a sport psychologist then the community you have joined has those connections and I am sure there are many more examples that you can think of.  


#8. Reasonably priced membership packages. We have worked hard to ensure that our paid membership packages are reasonably priced and provide great value whether you are on the journey to establishing your business or looking to consolidate your online presence. In return we invest time and money into Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategies to promote the site and your services. 


#9. Free 6-month trial period. Even better then reasonably priced membership packages we have a free 6 month trial period! A great way to get recovery ready and promote your sports business in these challenging times. 


#10. Bespoke options. If you choose our Bespoke package you can list in multiple locations and for multiple specialities (e.g., sports massage, fitness, sports injury etc). This is particularly helpful for those people who have more than one clinic with a range of expertise, or perhaps those individuals who offer a service that is national rather than local (e.g., online triathlon coaching). Also if our existing packages don’t meet your unique needs please contact us and we are more than happy to explore how we can help. 


#11. We are unique. As far as we know(!) we are the only online local sport directory focused on a range of sports practitioners and businesses. This enables us to deliver a great service to those who list with us and helps us connect with clients across the UK.


#12. More than a directory. We do not just list your expertise - you are in control of your profile and can post articles, videos, post coupons/offers etc. All of these are searchable and this extra information really helps boost your online presence and attract clients. Data shows that websites – in this instance your profile - with blog content have on average 434% more search engine-indexed webpages.


#13. You can display your expertise through reviews of your work. 92% of all online feedback is considered positive so it really pays to have a system where your service can be rated. Further, 55% of people will search online for reviews and recommendations before proceeding. On our Premium and Bespoke packages you have the ability to moderate any reviews received for peace of mind. 


#14. There are no tie-ins to any of our packages. You can leave at any time and you will not owe us a penny. We want you to list on our directory, be part of our community, and are sure you will find it a valuable experience that enhances your business. As such we have no need to tie you in to any long term contracts or commitments. 


#15. if you advertise on our directory we help you get found in your local area. You get more clients and your business and reputation grows. We aim to offer a valuable service for clinics, coaches, consultants and companies who offer sports-related services. 


We hope that you would very much like to list your services on our easy to use sports directory. If you would like to get on the map (apologies for the dreadful pun!) then why not see our membership packages, choose the one that is right for you, and join our growing community.


By all means browse our directory to see if it is a right fit for your business.
