GCMs or ALCA members rarely see themselves as salespersons. However, this is a fatal error. You may have a product, but to make money from that product, you have to sell it. In the beginning you yourself may have to sell your geriatric care management product. Even if it is a service, people are buying your product.To begin to put together a sales plan you need to identify who makes the decision to buy your geriatric care management products. With older adults over age 85, the buying decision is generally made by the adult children or the third party (trust officer, etc.). Many times young older adults (65–85 years of age) make their own buying decisions.
You then need to identify what criteria the person making the buying decision uses to evaluate your geriatric care management product. For example, you have to figure out whether the decision to purchase your product Care Management Plus product is made by the adult child based on price, features, or availability. How will you give your customer, the adult child, enough information to say yes? Does this buying decision require personal contact in intake by a GCM, a Care Management Plus sell sheet you dropped off at the parent’s physician’s office, word of mouth, paid advertising, through social media- if so what – blog, web site – what Describe your sales plan. It will have to go in your business plan plus- be good enough to get you, customers.
