WARNING

This is not your typical marketing agency information, it’s rebel-entrepreneur-style and designed to produce results fast with minimal spend.

IN THIS MARKETING & LEAD GEN ACADEMY, YOU WILL LEARN TO BETTER MARKET YOUR ASSISTED LIVING COMMUNITIES.

We will break down the following marketing components and create a sustainable assisted living marketing & lead gen system that is easily executed by your and your marketing agency partner.

THE ASSISTED LIVING BUYER PROCESS: 

Where do prospective buyers tend to find an assisted living community?

In this 4-Week Assisted Living Marketing & Lead Gen Academy, Traci will break down the buying process to bring the most current and effective marketing strategies designed to generate leads that actually convert to a new resident:

  • Drive by, walk in
  • Web search, website
  • Professional Referral
  • Advertisement or traditional print campaign

 

YOUR RESPONSE TO HOW PROSPECTIVE RESIDENTS SEARCH FOR AND BUY ASSISTED LIVING SHOULD BE INFORMATIVE, ACTIONABLE, AND CLEAR SO THAT THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO WANT TO FIND YOU AND BUY, CAN!

You will learn what specific tactics must be in place to ensure a seamless buyer experience no matter how people choose to find you.

  • Research shows that 6,000 online searches related to senior care are made every hour in the US and that senior living operators with strong SEO strategies have the advantage in today’s competitive landscape.
  • 75% of prospective buyers research those options on search engines with 83% having no initial provider in mind, giving you an opportunity to educate and convert them first.
  • 8.68% of senior living operators say their website is their most effective marketing channel with the average cost per lead $431.
  • This dwarfs the CPLs of most major industries, including business services ($229), software ($106), manufacturing ($235), and home improvement ($85).
  • Despite these efforts, the average conversion rate for senior living leads is just 30%; which is why sales training is so important in combination with a solid marketing strategy.

 

Traci will lay out a step-by-step marketing system with an accompanying checklist and execution strategies for each aspect of the buying process as it relates to assisted living marketing.

  • Understand how to create a raving fan customer from a spur of the moment walk in visit by leveraging the power of emotion.
  • Consistently increase your assisted living’s visibility in search engines month after month with the ultimate goal to land in the top three.
  • Be seen as an expert and preferred option despite aggressive competition in your market service area. 
  • Discover what it takes to create a circle of professional influence within a 15 mile radius of your assisted living community that results in three to five qualified professional referrals per week, that close four times faster and at market rate. 
  • Common and costly mistakes operators make when executing a traditional marketing campaign and how to fix them immediately. 
  • Social media strategies that actually have purpose and result in prospective buyers engaging in the buying process.

In this course consisting of four live academy sessions Traci Bild, CEO of Bild & Co and author of industry favorite Zero Lost Revenue Days will simplify assisted living marketing to include both new development lease up and stabilized communities. It’s time to systematize marketing just like we did two decades ago with sales.

 

At the end of this series you will understand how to prioritize your marketing needs and what a true assisted living marketing budget entails. Most importantly, you will learn to produce more qualified leads with minimal spend by leveraging your assisted living expertise and relationships with residents and professionals in the community at large.
