Home Care Business SEO
Find More Families Looking for Help.
If you’re a home health care agency, hospice or private duty home care agency, read on. With an elderly population growing and ready to explode, you’ve chosen the right industry to be in. However, there are also a TON of other senior care related companies opening up left and right of you. What are home care agencies going to have to do to get majority market share? Outside of the typical networking your franchise system suggests, you need to be investing in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) now so your future is bright.
What Exactly is Home Healthcare SEO?
Imagine that a family member has a mother that is getting old and unable to take care of herself. One of the first places he or she may go is to Google to search for things like, “in-home care help for my mom” or “help for seniors at their home”. She’s then click on an Ad or an Organic result. Is your business listing (maps) or website coming up as an option towards the top of the 1st page on Google? The strategies and tactics surrounding the push to get you noticed are called SEO or Search Engine Optimization.
Segmenting or nich-ing down into the Senior Care space, this is where it gets interesting. Most digital marketing agencies 1: Don’t have the internal resources to truly do SEO the right way and 2: They definitely don’t have the expertise in the senior care space.
Working with an SEO specialist that knows the ins and outs of both SEO and the in-home market is very important.
Why Should I Invest in SEO?
It’s a Long Term Play: You aren’t going to see immediate results…most likely. It’s like having an annuity. The investment you make up front, pays for leads, calls and more business revenue over time. See graph below.
Perception is Reality: When family members Google you and see a 2 start reputation, they aren’t going to call you. If they see dozens of raving fans of your service, you’re going to get the call and probably even a referral. Google also uses your online reputation as a ranking signal.
Reduction in Paid Ads Over Time: Just like the example above, as you invest in SEO, over time you’ll be able to decrease the Ad Spend (PPC) each month. Most of our clients have been able to also get into other markets due to market domination with SEO. They now have the funds to kind of “rinse and repeat” in new cities and towns.
