#2 Combine Your Google My Business Listing with Google ADS for an AWESOME 1-2 punch.
When you market your senior care business by combining the power of your listing with the power of a LOW COST Google Ads campaign, the phone rings. Yes it does, yes it does.
- You can do this, or get help from us…here’s the formula:
- Create a Google Ads campaign that contains 2000+ keyword phrases, and 100+ negative keyword phrases. (negative keyword phrases minimize job seekers).
- Set up a similar campaign on Facebook. Both work well. We are finding that as of March 2020, Google Ads tend to work better in certain locations.
- This campaign is set up to run in your local area and can be adjusted by radius or zip code.
- The potential client has 4 ways to communicate:
- Phone Call
- Make sure you are instantly notified by email when a new lead comes in..and can also be notified by text, if you wish.
- Make sure the potential new client receives an instant TEXT letting them know that their inquiry was received and someone will be in touch.
- Make sure you have a full CRM loaded with potential clients
- Organize them by category:
- Filled Out Form,
- In-Home Assessment
- Started Services
- Not Qualified
- Make sure you can schedule assessments directly from the CRM.
- You should be able to Text, Chat, Email, and Call from ONE PLATFORM.
- Spend as much or as little on Google Ads as you like. Minimum $10 per day.
- Can we do this for you? Yes, but you CAN do it yourself.
- We call this our SCIP CARE program.
- When you combine this with a FREE CRM to manage your leads- BAM. Killing it! #winning
