    Getting new clients

    yjackson1985 Newbie

      I am the owner of a private home care agency and getting clients has become very difficult. I have sent out flyers to healthcare facilities with the idea that I will get a lead. I have a website, Facebook page, Instagram page that is always updated but all to no luck on a client. Hospitals don’t even want to talk to you because they have a system already in operation that they do not want to speak to you about. I know the senior population needs help but they cannot afford how much home care agencies charge. Any suggestions on how to get clients.

          Hi yjackson, welcome to our community! You've asked a common question about how to grow your business.  As you know, as our population ages, the need for home health care increases.  You've already found out that it's hard to crack the obvious lead (hospitals) so you are finding you need to think "outside the box".


          Have you reached out to individual doctors, retirement communities, and low income health care clinics?  These would be excellent possibilities to start and may not already have affiliations.  There are also many individual charities or churches that you may find would be open to the idea of providing lower cost alternatives to their clients or members.  Some towns also have an advertising circulars or coupon mailers, that local businesses can use to provide a mixture of promotional pages and coupons. .


          Since you're already active using social media, make sure you're making the most of it.  We've got a couple of expert articles that I think you would find helpful 7 Ways to Boost Engagement from Your Social Media Posts and How to Optimize Your Small Business’ Facebook Page
