Monthly Marketing Update
- June 2020

Last month I was soooooooo excited about using ZOOM and having at least some "virtual connections” with my peeps; but now I think I have Zoom fatigue. I love seeing everyone’s face and catching up, but now it seems I am on zoom calls all day long. However, there is one zoom call that I cannot wait for, it has been a long time coming! Next week we are launching our new look for and we have added many new features and additional levels of care. We are hosting a zoom call today at 11am! We have been working for a year to add a tool for families to search real time availability and for Retirement Connection to be an even greater resource for the  hospitals and area agencies on aging. I hope you can join us on the call, we already have 215 RSVPs and have upgraded our zoom subscription to accommodate the higher number (more details are below).

It may seem early, but we have already started working on the next edition. If you have any suggested updates or additions, please start sending those our way and we can make edits immediately. For the next 3 weeks, you can also take advantage of the 10% Early Bird Discount If you want to reserve ad space for next year. No payments or artwork needed until 2021, just your ad space reservation only. The ads in the guide are placed by 1) size and 2) date of reservation; so there is an additional benefit to reserve early.

As Southern Oregon moves into Phase 2 of reopening, we are still hoping to move forward with our release party on June 18th! Phase 2 will allow us to have up to 100 guests attend an outdoor event and we have reached out to the winery and will know by this Wednesday if we will be able to move forward. Please make sure to check back in for updates!

There are so many resources included in Retirement Connection, that often a few may slip past you and may not be noticed. Did you know that the guide also includes:

Nuggets of Knowledge


“Losers quit when they fail. Winners fail until they succeed.”
– Robert Kiyosaki

This quote seemed very fitting as we launch Our team started work on this project quite a while ago and had to adjust course along the way. I am proud that the website we are releasing next week has more features and customization than we initially planned. We did not give up on bringing the idea to fruition and it shows.
