Who is Searching for Your Website- Part 2

Thursday, August 18, 2016

Who Is Searching For Your Web Site? We previously established that it is most often the adult child of an older adult who searches for a senior living website, being reactive to a situation that has arisen with the parent(s), most often a health or cognitive concern. When seniors conduct a search on their own behalf, they fall into one of two categories: the reactive consumer or the proactive consumer. Read prior article.

After honing your web site to assure good positioning during a query, you must next attract your human customer.

YOUR WEB SITE - IT’S THE NEW FIRST IMPRESSION

Our industry wears the moniker of senior housing — so it’s all about the housing, right? I propose that, contrary to the name, it is not just about the campus, with its inviting social areas, multiple venues, attractive décor, and lovely homes. Certainly, it is important to pay attention to the buildings, their presentation, and facilities management, since the visual impression is usually the first impression.

RaDical Connections

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

I’ve said it before. As we round out this series, it’s worth saying again: People crave what’s real! Our customers need authentic interaction that puts them at ease, rather than increases their suspicion of us. Last week we explored the thresholds, or phases of the prospect’s decision-making process, which provide a transparent and predictable process for both sales counselor and prospective resident. That transparency and predictability encourage an authentic and trusting connection that equips prospective residents with the information, resources, and support they need to make a life-changing decision. ...Read the rest...

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

At the core of RaDical Sales® is the hypothesis that our customers are immersed in a journey of determination about their future lifestyle and living situation. RaDical uses the term THRESHOLDS because our customers are at a threshold of several different phases of that decision-making process. Thresholds provides a framework and acknowledgement of the thresholds along with other information within the RaDical workbook from which the senior sales counselor can glean all the content, style suggestions, and processes needed to collaboratively help an older adult with a senior living decision.  ...Read the rest...
