GCMs rarely see themselves as salespersons.
This is a fatal error. You may have a care management 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 services. To put together a sales plan together you need to identify who makes the decision to buy your menu of 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, or the third party who will refer you to the adult child, like an elder law attorney or an Assisted Living Director enough information to say yes? Does this buying decision require personal contact in intake by a GCM, a Care Management Plus sell sheet when you get a sales appointment with the Assisted Living Director, an elevator speech about the features of you care management products, a lists of benefits that you use to explain what the client and family will derive from using your services – or learning how to close a sale. Know all this makes you a care management salesperson. It will have to go in your business plan plus- be good enough to get you, customers who sign your contract and give you a deposit.
