Consider Some Important Questions?
Our marketing covers a full year. When comparing our guide to other publications – don’t simply look at the cost of 1 ad in a newspaper. Look at “how much will it cost to run that ad for a year?”
- Our Guide hits a specific target market: 50 and older, adult children planning for themselves and assisting their parents. Look at who is reading the publication you advertise with, “Are the readers your target market – age, income, geographic area?“
- Our website guide hits a specific geographic area. If you need to target a specific city, why waste the distribution and marketing dollars on those that are not in your service area. “Are the readers within the geographic area you typically draw customers?“
- Our marketing includes print, web & community.
- We do not charge extra for website postings, marketing support, release parties, promotion on events calendar or newsletter. “Are these additional costs with other publications?‘
- We are very involved with the community. We work closely with local Agencies on Aging & Disability, Parish Nurses, Case Managers, and other referral sources. We serve on professional boards and attend all network meetings. We feel it helps us be a better advocate and better informed. “Do you see the same in other media sources you work with?“
What Makes Our Print Guide Different From Others?

- Focused – our distribution covers a focused geographic area; greater coverage in your backyard to best hit your potential customers.
- Comprehensive– the guide/website covers 100 topics of information to be a one stop resource.
- Digest size– compact and easy to carry, always on hand, great desk, car or phone reference
- Design– carefully designed with color selection and low glare paper for older eyes, color coded tabs and alphabetical listings for quick reference.
What Makes Our Website Different From Others?
- This website is not only for the frail and elderly. We focus attention on all social, wellness and medical aspects of retirement and caregiving. This increases our number of return visitors and also provides exposure of products, programs and services to a larger audience.
- This website is designed for a focused market, preferring to research and purchase online without pop-up ads, without animated graphics, and with a slower rotation of banners; thus generating longer view time.
- Advertisement space has a clean design with an elegance that gives viewers a chance to learn about products, programs and services; then drill in deeper to read articles, profiles, send you an email, visit your website or request more information directly.
- This website does not require viewers to turn pages to view additional listings;, the information is displayed in a running list.
- Sponsors promote their services with a 50 word description, contact information, logo or picture, website link, and link to Article content if submitted that is placed in a priority position above basic listings for greater viewership. Sponsors also receive enhanced business listings which include a web link and an attention-grabbing “bullet” to bring focus to their business information in the general alphabetical listings among the other basic listings.
