Mid-Willamette Valley
Monthly Marketing Update- July 2022

I just looked back to last year’s newsletter and laughed when I read "Hallelujah, It almost feels like we are returning to a bit of normal.”  Did you expect that it would take a full year longer before all networking meetings and events were in person again?

In the past few months, we have distributed thousands of guides in the community and at events. We are back to pre-covid numbers and climbing. I am grateful for the recent feedback from our sponsors that are finding a return on their advertising dollars. Even more valuable are the testimonials from local non-profit organizations, hospitals, referral sources, and DHS leadership that share the guide with their clients. Please take a moment to read their kind words.

The past 2 years have also allowed us to also develop We plan to grow this digital option across the country, and this month we have just added: Arizona, North Carolina, and Rhode Island. Unlike other sites, this online resource lists every provider for free, and each can update their current availability at no cost; this significantly increases Family and Patient Freedom of Choice like never before. The new site is also driving more web traffic to Retirement Connection and increasing the requests for print guides.

*** We are wrapping up our next edition. Most of our current sponsors have already reserved their ad space and sent in new ads. Please reach out to me or Erin today if there is someone you feel we should connect with for the next edition. Retirement Connection is an annual guide and it will be a full year before we can add someone new if they miss the deadline.

"Just keep swimming, just keep swimming..." - Dory from Finding Nemo

I have done a few multi-day treks over the past few years. At times, I go too quickly, then I am forced to stop and take a break to catch my breath. Once I stop, it is harder to get moving again.  Whether I am on a long hike, running a 5k, or just managing my busy life- it is better for me to pick a more manageable pace and just keep moving. When I am overwhelmed or tired, I just need to keep going- even if it is slower than I would prefer. Slow progress is still progress!
