What is a Rolladex on Speed?
During the Covid-19 pandemic, when many geriatric care managers are shut down, they need a virtual rolladex on speed- or an email marketing and marketing automation platform. An email marketing database is essential for keeping your prospective, existing customers warmed up and ready to buy your services or products. You store your contacts or customers and send information that will entice them to use your agency. Constant Contact is the most common. I use it because it has great customer services for non-natives in technology like me plus excellent templates. But other alternatives like Survey Monkey and Moosend and many others can be considered. Think of this as your old Rolodex on speed.
During this pandemic, this gives you the ability to let your third parties like elderlaw attorneys and existing an potential new clients know you are still here, still care about their needs and show them what preventative steps you have taken in
Advertise Your Agencies Coronavirus Universal Saftey Precautions
Use the e-mail newsletter to update contacts on your staff’s training in universal precautions and use of all the necessary masks, gloves, and PPE . You should assure that caregivers are required to take their own temperature prior to each shift and all shifts are available.
Share Community Resources During Pandemic
You can let clients and 3rd parties, know helpful information about coping with “shelter in place”, in your town. For example, a list of all the grocery stores that deliver, as older people are not supposed to go shopping or if they do -the times when only they are allowed in the store. If your care providers can do that shopping you could add this to the newsletter.
If you do a Virtual Quality of Life Program for lonely and isolated seniors unable to get out during Covid-19, share your service in the newsletter. If you do not offer a Quality of Life program, point them toward geriatric care manager Nina Herndon’s excellent virtual quality of life program.
If you have a partnership with your county health department, which is a very good idea, you can add that in your newsletter. You can keep customers up to date on Covid-19 information in your area. You can both use it in your agency and share it through your newsletter. Other ideas are adding photos of your staff in PPE or even staff making masks if you have sewing talents. Or there is a volunteer group in your county making PPE for hospitals, share that and with photos in your newsletter
