home care videos Jan 25, 2023

Well this is embarrassing...

Most people never get started with video because they are worried about being seen as "bad." They assume that people they see are naturally good at being on camera. That couldn't be further from the truth.

Today, we are breaking down the first video I ever recorded. My pain is your education! Enjoy!

My first video?

Oh, it was terrible.

It was so bad.

And now you get to see it.

Today I'm gonna show you my first video as I react to the thing going on in the video.

And to show you that we just have to get started.

There's also some tips along the way that I'll share that I used in my first video that made it a little better.

On today's blog post of Home Care Digital, I'm gonna embarrass myself.

Social media plays a vital role in our business. That’s a fact, right?

So this was when I was working at Hurricane Marketing Enterprises.

So Steve took some time.

He introduced me, and then I jumped on screen.

Today we're talking about the ten...

How To Stand Out From Your Competition in Home Care

Time and time again home care businesses wonder why they are struggling. The problem is that every home care company offers the same services. Which in some cases means prospects are only shopping for price.

So what can you do to stand out?

When it comes to marketing your business you want to be different and you have to stand out. 

In Home Care, your competitors offer the same services as you, so how can you be different when you're offering the same services as everyone else?

Establish Your Specialization/Niche

One example that many of my clients focus on is being an expert in Dementia. 

Are you good at dementia?

Is that something that you want to be known for?

It is critical that you choose something to specialize in so that you can establish a differentiation from competitors in your area. 

Objections To Specialization

Yes, we want to help people, but when there's so many options and...

Holiday Videos To Create For Home Care

Ho, Ho, Ho! With Christmas is coming up we're going to talk about some great holiday themed videos for you to make for your home care business.


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...

3 Ways How To Make Better Videos Before Hitting Record

Want to make better videos? All we got to do is increase our energy! So how can we go about making better videos by increasing our energy?

1. Stand Up When You Record

Standing is a great way to increase your energy in your videos. When you sit it often makes you more sluggish. It also makes us crouch our back instead of our back being nice and straight. 

2. Pump Yourself Up

All right, this was something that one of my students shared on our group call last week where he actually plays pump up music to get excited about the filming process. He uses that to motivate himself and get really psyched and get pumped up.

To gain more energy, play some motivational music to get yourself going.

3. Overemphasize 

The other thing that you need to understand when it comes to video and making better videos is that video has a tendency to bring your energy down. So we want to be overdramatic and over energized.

I know it can feel weird at first, but it can make a huge difference....

Fall Prevention Awareness Day.

Now here's the thing...

When it comes to fall prevention, the majority of people do not know about preventing falls in the home. I love to share a story about when my grandmother needed care.

My dad had reached out and let me know that he had hired a company for home care. And the thing was, my dad was not aware of the industry. He didn't know certain things like fall prevention. And unfortunately the home care company that he had hired, didn't do a simple safety inspection to make sure that it...
