Nick Bonitatibus here again! Today I’m going to share with you some amazing holiday content that you can create this season.
There are three amazing videos that you can create specifically for your business that we're gonna go over today.
These three videos come from this resource that I created called the Elder Care Content Guide, which has over a hundred different video content topics that you can talk about throughout the year.
Therefore, this content resource will last you forever.
If you want this guide, it's available for Lead Machine Academy members.
All you got to do is go to www.thedigitalchamps.com/lma to find out how you can join.
The first holiday video...
What does an amazing social media presence look like?
Today, I'm talking about some superstars in home care that are absolutely crushing it online.
On this Home Care Digital’s blog post, we dive into some of my incredible Lead Machine Academy members. We’ll be discovering what they're doing and why they are thriving.
The students that I'm going to go over are part of my online community, Lead Machine Academy, which is focused on online training and coaching to help leverage video to drive results, to attract clients, referral sources and caregivers.
The first person I want to mention is Jonathan Marsh. He's in Bradenton, Florida and he is a true student of the program in implementing, utilizing and creating amazing videos on a consistent basis. He’s just pumping it out and he's seeing the results.
You can check out his testimonial that he sent on my website.
But what's so awesome is that he's leveraging it for every particular audience.
This works and it works for every business. Failure to do this one strategy is guaranteed failure for your organization.

This must be done and used again and again and again.
Understanding this one principle will dramatically change your home care business to generate more referrals for your agency.

Doesn't matter what it is.
Every single business is built on this one fundamental piece.

A lot of times, if you've watched my videos, you’ll notice that I am always talking about social media, doing videos, and tackling other digital marketing strategies.

Have you ever thought about what powerful tool you can use in your tool belt that will generate more sales and get more caregivers? Of course you have! Let's dive in.
The number one tool to use in your tool belt is social proof. Now, social proof does not just mean reviews. It’s also important to know what you can do to get more reviews, where you can use them, and really know the fundamentals of leveraging this.
It’s crucial to understand what we're really leveraging and showcasing transformations and experiences. It’s not just getting Google reviews to acquire more clients.
It’s an aspect not only to get more clients, but also to get more results and referrals. In addition, it’s also about attracting more caregivers to your business.
So where can you use these reviews?
Because a lot of times we're pushing to get more Google reviews. However, we're not actually using and leveraging them. If you're not focusing on Google...
Using Indeed to get caregivers?
Most agencies are and it is one of the top sources, but it can get costly. On today's episode, we welcome caregiver recruiting expert and owner of Carework Rachel Gartner.
Let’s talk about Indeed.
As we’ve discussed in our previous posts, Indeed is such an amazing resource to use to get applicants for your business.
However, you may be asking how much money you should be spending to get your desired results.
In this post, Rachel Gartner, a caregiver recruiting expert from Carework will give us her insights to answer that.
So, let's dive in.
If you spend $600 a month, you're going to meet your hiring goals or whatever it is if you spend this amount per month.
You might be surprised, but there is not an answer that will work for everybody.
Keep in mind that everybody's markets are different, as well as their appeal to applicants. In addition,...
What do they want?
To successfully recruit (and retain) caregivers - we have to know what they want.
Here's a hint: it's not money!! Here is what they really want...
There’s no doubt that you need caregivers.
But here's the thing.
They don't want more money.
You might be thinking:
“What? No way!”
“Are you serious?”
“What do I mean?”
The truth is, caregivers don't want more money.
They want what money can buy them. Agreed?
The same thing goes with you. You don't want more money.
You want what money can buy you. Car, home, food, freedom.
So, we need to understand that each particular caregiver wants something different in what they're doing with their money.
And so when we understand what it is that they want, we can then better attract and help them to achieve their goals..
More money is not always the answer.
They want the tools and resources so that they can achieve their goals.
It's not just about that dollar amount.

Today, Aaron Osgood, the founder of Impowered will discuss the key retention techniques and strategies that are working in today's industry.
One key area a lot of people talk about is caregiver isolation.
Part of it is knowing how you can bring caregivers together and help them feel more connected.
Be aware of what tools you have to bring them together and have them communicate with each other.
When it comes to finding and keeping caregivers it continues to get more and more difficult. The cost per hire and retention continues to climb and you can't just keep giving them raises. So what can you do?
There is a solution! I am so excited to announce that Digital Champions has partnered up with Aaron Osgood from Empowered to help you recruit and retain more caregivers. Have a listen while Aaron shares how you can pay your caregivers more WITHOUT raises.

Does this sound like you??
You go to make your first video, record it, watch it and then are not happy. Then you record it again, same result. Then a third time, same result.
I see it time and time again people struggle with recording their first video over and over again then eventually give up and never post it.
Here are some quick video hacks you can start doing to make better content when recording for the first time.
One of the most common challenges of marketers is recording videos for the first time. Do you ever hit that record button and then start talking and you just keep fumbling and you can't get your words out? For most beginners, this is really a struggle.
And then you're like, “I give up. I don't want to do video anymore.”
You might have tried it several times and thought it's just not working for you.
I've been there. So, I totally understand.
I know that sometimes it can be hard when you're first getting started with videos.
