Marketing a Group Homes Business

The key to success in marketing a group homes business is to combine time-tested marketing techniques with the most cutting edge strategies in today's marketplace.

If you're hoping to leverage marketing to give your group homes business an edge over the competition you're not alone.

Some marketing concepts are just common sense. But to achieve your goals, there are some other things you'll also need to learn about marketing a group homes business.

Broadcast Advertising

Broadcast advertising has clearly taken some hits over the past couple of decades. The number of consumers who tune-in to local TV and radio has plummeted, and the industry has struggled to regain its footing. However, it would be a mistake to discount broadcast advertising entirely. Many group homes businesses can still use it to their advantage. It's critical to understand the limits and opportunities available in today's broadcast advertising industry. One area in which marketers continue to have success is during drive times when large numbers of listeners still tune-in to local radio. When marketing group homes businesses, the target audience is almost always local or regional. For broader reach, you'll likely need to look beyond broadcast venues and explore other online and offline marketing vehicles.

When It's Time to Rebrand

There are many reasons why it might be time to begin a rebranding initiative - but a lack of alternative tactics is not one of them. The most successful rebranding initiatives are the culmination of a deliberate process. For a group homes business, brands are tied to specific stages in the life of a business. If your company is expanding, you will inevitably outgrow your brand and it will be time to prepare for a comprehensive rebranding effort. Unless you are confident that you possess the skills necessary to rebrand your business, we advise consulting with a professional marketing firm before you introduce a new brand to your customers.

Marketing Collateral

Every piece of collateral your group homes business creates is a tangible reflection of your brand distinctive and core values. To squeeze the most impact from your collateral, it needs to be targeted toward its recipients. Delivered to the wrong person, a valuable piece of collateral will collect dust. For example, if you're spending good money on a direct mail collateral, it's worthwhile to invest in a premium mailing list from a leading mailing list provider. If you're like most business owners, you invest substantial resources in the creation of quality collateral. If you don't invest similar resources in mailing lists and other distribution channels, your group homes business's investment in collateral will be pointless.
