18 Marketing Ideas for Home Care Agencies

 
light-bulb-1002783_640Folks in the home care industry are often drawn to the work because they enjoy being a part of an endeavor that is in the business of caring for others.  Whether their role is caregiver, manager, ops, marketing, or otherwise, the driving force for their work tends to be that their efforts are connected to helping others. 
 
I mention all of this to say that a lot of folks in home care don't always get into it with the marketing or selling their services as the number one goal or as the main driver for their efforts.
 
And even if you are in a marketing role, we can sometimes get accustomed to certain routines, perspectives, or approaches with marketing efforts.
 
With that in mind, I thought it might be useful to offer a bit of a brainstorm of different ways to marketing your business.
 
Many of these ideas you're likely already implementing, some may seem too time consuming or not have the ROI you're seeking, but hopefully you find a few ideas here that resonate with you.  That, or perhaps the list may lead you to a new idea not on the list that you hadn't considered before.
 
In no particular order, here is a list of brainstorms for you to consider:
 

18 Ideas for Marketing Your Home Care Business

  1. Host, sponsor, or volunteer at a community or business networking event
  2. Create an e-newsletter for your email list offering a referral or discount 
  3. Guest author a blog article for an industry-related blog
  4. Sponsor a local community sports team
  5. Send a targeted "Snail Mail" mailing  
  6. Send an simple email to your contacts updating them on your news
  7. Ask former clients and former employees for referrals or connections
