5 Tips to Market your Services and Products to NDIS Participants
After spending the time, energy and money (blood, sweat, tears) required to become an NDIS Registered Provider, are you now scratching your head, wondering exactly how you will find your first NDIS clients?
Here our top 5 tips on how successful NDIS Providers market their services and products to NDIS Participants:
Word of Mouth
It’s no secret that the disability community is hyper-connected and word of mouth carries great weight. This will be your best and most cost-effective marketing tool. If you look after your customers and offer a truly “person-centred” service, they will spread the word about you.
Connect with NDIS Gatekeepers
Support coordinators play an important role in connecting NDIS Participants with NDIS Service Providers. Make sure the support coordinators in your local area know you. Local Area Coordinators (LAC) also play an important connecting role. Send your local LAC flyers and visit their offices to help them understand what makes your organisation unique.

Connect with Local Councils
All local councils are required to have a Disability Inclusion Plan. Your council’s Disability Inclusion Officer is the best person to contact. Let them know about the services you provide and ask to be included in their community directory.
Build your NDIS Provider Network
Other NDIS Service Providers can be a valuable source of referral and are happy to refer people on for services they are unable to provide. Join NDIS Service Provider Facebook groups in your local area.
