What you want is to align with the right partners who will elevate your marketing far beyond your competition’s efforts – who will showcase your organization’s best for the people who need you most to find you now.
It is crucial to determine which tasks you can wait on, and which must be completed right away. This can be accomplished by creating a two-columned list of “Must-Dos” and “General To-Dos.” The “Must-Do” column should contain one to three of the day’s most urgent items. Separating these tasks will give you a realistic view of where to direct your main focus throughout the day.

It’s become clear that marketing is essential for the success of a modern senior living organization, so why isn’t it working for yours?
The term “virtual reality” might conjure mental imagery of careening through the cosmos in a spaceship or running from zombies in a futuristic video game, but senior living marketers are finding the emergent technology has applications far more practical.
