What city has the Liberty Bell, Gin Blossoms and features the largest gathering of senior living practitioners in the industry?
Philadelphia! For four jam-packed days it’s hosting LeadingAge Annual Conference and Expo. From October 28th through the 31st, the City of Brotherly Love will be bustling. You’ll have the opportunity to meet, network, and learn from today’s top talent in active aging.
You’ll also have the chance to meet our team of senior living marketing experts. We’ll be helping attendees prepare for 2019. We’ll discuss marketing budget optimization and today’s senior living marketing best practices.
In this leadup to LeadingAge Conference 2018, your team will learn:
One of the themes in senior living marketing during 2018 were budget allocations staying the same from the previous calendar year. In some cases, communities reported decreased marketing budgets, with expectations (census rate, profitability) staying consistent. What can communities do when teams are held accountable to accomplish more with less?
Clearly, optimizations will need to happen to maximize marketing ROI in 2019. LeadingAge conference 2018 attendees who stop by our booth will receive a resource you can take back to your community. Your senior living marketing team will learn budget optimization techniques to make the most of your allocations during budget planning season. The worksheet we’ll provide will help your community optimize its marketing budget to be proactive, rather than reactive, with strategies and allocations.
