How to Make Your Home Care Blog Delicious

Posted by Ken Accardi on Jul 23, 2013 12:05:00 PM

Today's post is inspired by a post from Ginny Kenyon's blog entitled 5 Ingredients That Make Your Blog More Delicious authored by guest-blogger Scott Sider.  I love a lot of things about this article.  First, as recently as 3 or 4 years ago we used to talk about the need for a blog  and even the need for a web site for your home care agency.  The fact that this blog is about improving your blog is great news.  It shows that most of you are on board and "in the conversation."  I also like the food analogy about making your blog "delicious."  The author is from a writing company called Novo Writing, and it shows in the creativity of the post.

One Thing Successful Home Care Leaders Must Never Do!

Posted by Ken Accardi on Jul 16, 2013 9:43:00 AM

I saw a great article today on LinkedIn that I wanted to share.  The original article is entitled "The One Thing Successful People Never Do" and as always I'd encourage you to read the full article there.   In a nutshell, the one thing that successful people never do is that they never give up.  As children, we were all told that "If at first you don't succeed, try try again" and this article proves how important that is.

5 Ways to get Fantastic Support from your Home Care Software Vendor

Posted by Ken Accardi on Jul 8, 2013 1:27:00 PM

One of the most rewarding parts of my job is providing technical support to home care customers.  This morning I got a note from a customer who thanked me for setting up their holiday payments in the system.  Prior to coming on board with Ankota, they had to calculate their holiday billing and pay rates manually and he was genuinely excited to see it happen automatically.  Moreover, he took the time to email our support group to thank us.  The next time he needs support, guess what, he'll get great service.
