Networking is essential to any business. When it comes to networking for your in-home senior care franchise, you may be wondering where you should start. When you are an owner-partner with Interim HealthCare, we help you start on the right foot by giving you access to a tight-knit community of experts as well as fellow owner-partners, hosting national events, encouraging involvement with your local community, and strong brand recognition that will boost your social media presence. Read on to find out more about how you can take advantage of these networking opportunities for your Interim HealthCare franchise.
Interim Support Network
At Interim, we offer a robust support network of professionals, franchisees, and online materials to assist our in-home senior care franchise owners with access to many of the tools and expertise they need to network successfully. Many of our veteran owners have acted as amazing mentors for newer owners. It is essential to Interim that we facilitate and supplement these networking and learning experiences.
One way that we facilitate networking for our Interim HealthCare Franchise owners is through events. Interim hosts national events, like our annual Celebration of Excellence event, that we held virtually in 2020. The event, along with others, offers our franchise owners the opportunity to learn about and celebrate each other’s successes. They are beneficial opportunities for us all to see examples of success and learn useful tips about what has worked well for our peers.
Local Community Involvement
At Interim HealthCare, we recognize the importance of local community involvement and encourage our owners to get involved with their local communities not only to get their name out there but also to show the community that we care about our neighbors. Joining local chambers of commerce, setting up booths for local events, donating to charities, hosting career events, and offering educational information to local communities are all wonderful ways to get involved and network locally.
While local networking is quite effective in the real world, it is also extremely productive in the virtual world. The latest statistics show that people 65 years and older are the fastest-growing age demographic on Facebook. It is also the biggest age group that is seeking information on home care or hospice care for their parents and themselves. The personal nature of community events allows for effective networking; however, Facebook may, in reality, provide more visibility for your business. Creating a Facebook page for your Interim HealthCare Franchise and joining and regularly participating in local Facebook groups can reach more people in a shorter amount of time for no cost. You can even advertise your events or let people know you will be there on some local Facebook groups.
Other social media sites such as Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube can also help you let younger relatives and friends of potential clients know you are out there. Interim HealthCare is such a widely respected and recognized brand, which opens you up to even more virtual networking opportunities on sites such as LinkedIn.
