 Create an Effective Marketing Plan A good marketing plan will help you identify what type of people you need to reach with your message, where those people live, and how you can connect with them. It also helps you determine whether your current marketing efforts are effective. Recommendations To Market Your Agency – Have a modern website.- Post on social media. It’s free!- Get your website to rank on the first page of search engines, especially Google. Work on improving your SEO skills or hire a professional to move up your rankings.- Use AdWords of Google for paid ads and choose the appropriate key words that your clients would be looking for. Keep an eye on your budget!- Hire home care marketers to go out there and spread the word about how excellent your services are. Use a CRM software to manage your sales process and your sales force. – Keep trying and adjusting your marketing campaign to optimize the impact on your prospects.- Go out of your office and visit your clients. Focus on Quality Over Quantity If you’re looking to increase your home health care referral rate, then you should focus on quality over quantity. This means that you should make sure that every client receives excellent service. Be Consistent with Your Marketing Efforts It’s easy to think that you need to do lots of different things to get people to refer you. However, when you’re consistent with your efforts, you will see better results. For example, if you send out an email newsletter once per week, you will likely receive fewer responses than if you sent out one email per day. Offer Free Services or Discounts If you offer free services or discounts, you will likely get more referrals. People love free stuff! About the author Antoine (Tony) Onaissi is the president and CEO of Isoratec, a CRM combined with business intelligence for the post-acute care industry.  Utilizing more than 25 years of home care experience he created Isoratec to be the ideal solution for agencies serving the home health care market.
