Monthly Marketing Update
- February 2018

2018 will mark our 10th year in business... Time flies when you love your job. Thank you to all who attended the Release Party last week for Greater Portland/Vancouver! We were excited to have a such a great turnout with almost 425 people. More impressive was that we greeted about 200 people within the first 30 minutes… It was Crazy! If you were not able to join us - you were missed. You can also
view photos online. Thank you to so many that have supported our growth and has also been supportive of our team. It is because of you using the guide with your patients and clients that we are able to bring value to every family looking for care and services. Please let us know if you need additional guides.

As we do every year- we offer a 10% early bird discount for those that know they plan to be in next year’s guide. By reserving early you save 10% off your ad and receive better placement in the guide. The early bird discount will run through March 15th. Payments and ad copy are not due until late 2018.

IMPORTANT - Many people did not realize that we welcome you to add your label to the cover with "Compliments of…" and to share the guide with others. We will give you as many copies as you will use. You do not have to be a sponsor to share the guide. We want all families to have access to resources and services as soon as a need arises.

For our sponsors- make sure to RSVP for the Sponsor breakfast on Feb 23rd. (We apologize that this day has a conflict with the Alzheimer’s Association Advocacy day in Salem, but we have to schedule the hospital rooms well in advance and did not know about the conflict at that time.)

Additional Resources

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:

Emergency Response Systems and Funeral Services


Nuggets of Knowledge

"If you want to walk fast, walk alone. If you want to walk far, walk together."

A team or network is more than just the group you surround yourself with. It is those that you rely on and trust to carry the load and encourage you when you are too exhausted to even ask for help. The tribe or family of people you surround yourself with will help you go further than you ever imagined traveling on your own.
