Oh and then there is following up with every lead, referral, referral source and on and on…..
- Yellow Pages online- I'm a big opponent of this type of spending. Wouldn't do it. My opinion.
- Yellow Pages Offline- Depends on your market. You MUST calculate your ROI. If you are getting good leads, keep it , if not , save your money for something else.
a. Great call to action.b. Great content.c. Easy contact options.d. Excellent organic keyword strategy.e. Search engine optimization for better visibility.f. REAL qualified backlinks to elder care and senior service oriented websites. (not just any backlinking will do, so BE CAREFUL)
3. Social Media is very important. For home care agency owners and marketers, this is the order of importance:
a. #1 is LinkedIn (surprised?)b. #2 is Facebookc. #3 is Twitterd. #4 is YouTube
4. Back to Content- Great Content, Local Content, Unique Content.
a. Blog posting is not an option, it MUST BE DONE.b. Posting to Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter is super important.c. Turning those posts into videos, creating videos, posting videos is essential in 2012.
Seems overwhelming, but generating leads online that are EXCLUSIVE to you and your office, and not SHARED with 5 other agencies in your area is not only smart, but those leads are much easier to close, and much more interested in YOUR services.
