Sales Management Tip of the Month: Are You Getting the Most Marketing Mileage From Your Senior Livin
Updated: Jun 7
Your senior living sales CRM is built to manage the sales cycle from the prospect stage to move-in. A CRM is an essential component of a senior living provider’s overall sales system. Leads are expensive to get, and are likewise expensive to lose, so the ability to manage hundreds of prospects – at all different stages in the sales cycle – is fiscally important.
But are you getting the most marketing mileage out of your CRM?
Sales moves prospects through the funnel, but marketing brings them to the funnel in the first place. The marketing of senior living communities today relies on a complex mix of technology platforms that promote the senior living communities, attract prospects, educate them, and nurture them on their journey.
Where is the CRM’s place in the marketing and sales relationship? It’s the bridge between marketing and sales. If you’re not taking advantage of your CRM’s ability to be that bridge – to integrate – then you’re only getting half of the value out of it.
WelcomeHome’s integrations with marketing technology platforms like HubSpot, Roobrik, and others allow you to supercharge the way you connect with your prospects.
