Now that there are almost fifty million seniors over 65, the market for senior service businesses is booming like never before. When you start your own senior service business, your first goal should be to get that first paying customer.
Believe me, once you do this, more customers will come naturally and your new business will prosper.
After you’ve had business cards and flyers printed, pass them out to anyone who works or volunteers at your local senior center, senior living or retirement communities.
That includes social workers, senior care managers, health care workers and eldercare lawyers.
They all know who needs help in their circle of friends and clients, and are happy to recommend a service that helps seniors stay independent.
Two more tips –
Print a coupon on the back side of your new business cards offering a free hour or a free consultation for new customers. This will encourage prospects to save your card instead of tossing it.
Next – List your new business on Craigslist. You may be surprised by how many prospects find you there.
It’s easy and inexpensive to get started, so let’s get going!
