The number one thing when it comes to home care is understanding that this business is about building relationships. If we're being honest, all businesses are about building relationships. It's an essential piece of growing any business no matter what business you are in. I love this quote...
"The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your relationships. The quality of your business is no different." - Harvey McKay
Building relationships is a fundamental piece of how we're leveraging what we're doing and how we're getting referrals. So what can we do in order to establish these relationships, to get people to know us, aside from let's say networking events?
We can actually create our own networking opportunity by having a show! It be a podcast or a video series is one of the greatest ways for you to make new connections as well as creating great marketing...
Social media is a big waste of time...
If it doesn't generate results!
On today's episode of Homecare Digital, we're talking about one simple thing you can do to get better results on the content you share.
When it comes to social media, we want results. That's the most important thing.
So what can we do to increase our results?
One of the best pieces of your marketing is utilizing your face. Yes, your smiling face. People love to see it. People are following your page because they know you to some capacity.
Your face is your best marketing tool in leveraging it because you are your brand. You are the reason that people are following you. When your face shows up on their news feed, they go, "Hey, I know that person." And so the more that we can incorporate you as the owner, you as the marketer, members of your team into your social media, the more that people are gonna be scrolling through the newsfeed and say, "Hey, I know that person - like, comment, engage."
The more that...
You're told to post to social media, but how do you know it is working? On today's episode of Home Care Digital, we are talking about how to measure social media success.
The first way to measure social media success is through reach. Often, when we think about social media, we're checking out engagement, but the most important thing is how much of our content is getting in front of people that we want to see it. By looking at the business analytics on our pages, we can determine how many people are reaching with each post.
People may not always be liking, and commenting, but that doesn't mean that they're not seeing your content. Focusing on reach is a great place to really look at your data, and see how well it's performing to see which posts are doing well.
Then you can ask yourself...

1. Senior Gifts
What a great idea to think about different gifts that you can get for your senior loved one. And what's really unique about this is you can add a lot of value to educating your audience about the benefits of things that you're buying for your loved one.
For example, one of the things that we got from my grandmother is a Facebook Portal. What's really cool about the Facebook Portal is that it connects with Facebook. So it makes it really easy to use. But what it does is basically creates a video chat that makes it easy for us to stay connected with her.
She lives in Arizona, I live in San Diego, and the a big chunk of the rest of my family is in the Philadelphia area. It makes it really easy for us to do video chat, which is great because if you've actually done the studies that depression is very common...
Want to increase your social media engagement?
Looking to increase your social media engagement? Here's how.
When it comes to your social media and understanding how engagement works, it's important to really understand a few things.
Engagement does not necessarily mean likes and comments.
Yes, those are things that we want, but really, engagement is anything, they could be clicking on the post, looking at the post, reading the post. All contributes to that engagement that's gonna get more people to see it.
Increased Engagement = Increased Reach
Through our business analytics on our Facebook page and Instagram (Facebook Insights Support), we can see those analytics and see how many people saw a particular post. Reach is a much more valuable analytic to watch.
Not to mention, likes and comments don't get business!
We want get in front of as many people as we can, but engagement is not necessarily what's always going to get your message in front of THE RIGHT people....

Today, we're talking about Thanksgiving marketing for home care and things that you can do to give thanks.
What's so awesome is realizing that there are so many reasons that we can start to create to reach out to different referral sources and reconnect with them.
Holidays are just one of the reasons.
What's fantastic about this strategy and why it works so well is that it is personal!
What we can do to really give thanks to our referral sources in this online world is send them videos. I use this all the time!
Sending personalized custom video messages to people to show my appreciation for them. Now, a lot of times I do this when it's somebody's birthday or if they had a big life event.
The big one is birthdays, which is really great because people love getting video messages on their birthday. One of the biggest reasons being because they're not used to getting it.

When is the best time to post on social media? One of the most common questions - answered!
I get asked all the time. The answer is really simple to find out.
But first, there are some common times that are good to post.
For example, morning and lunchtime are good times. Also, in the evening when people are done work, but this varies per day. It also varies per audience.
One thing that you should know when looking to figure out what time is the best time for you to post is to looking at your Facebook insights.
Now, keep this in mind, your Facebook insights won't have any insights if you don't actually post. So if you don't post, then you won't have any information to determine the best time.
*An important thing to note is that you don't get Facebook insights if you don't actually have a business page. It is essential that you have a business page in order to get insights.
