Let’s Give ‘Em Something ELSE to Talk About!
The media are having a feeding frenzy over news in senior communities amidst COVID-19. In fact, a quick Google News search of your community’s name may reveal negative information about the virus on your campus. But that’s not the whole story of your community – not even close. The greater truth is that you and the vast majority of senior communities have gone to extraordinary lengths to keep residents safe and engaged physically, emotionally and socially…

INTEGRATED MARKETING SOLUTIONS
When you want to know every available tactic to drive your business, you want integrated marketing solutions. Who’s the customer and where do we find them? What’s the competition? What is unique to your organization? We’ll do the research, explore all the options and create a road map with the best strategies and tactics for your company.
What’s in a name, a look, a tagline? Are you cheerful, serious, powerful or playful? Your brand captures the spirit of your organization and is the impression you make with clients and prospects. Your style is expressed in your logo, business materials and all things you say and do. And, since your website and online marketing is the ceterpiece of every organization’s marketing, you’ll want our amazing designers to develop a website for you that will be a dazzling customer experience.
Nowhere is the expression “You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression” more applicable than to a company’s website. Your website, particularly the home page, is literally your doorway to success. IVY’s custom web design capabilities encompass not only extraordinary artistic talent and computer graphics savvy, supported by engaging copy, but skilled knowledge of optimal navigation, call-to-action opportunities, search engine optimization, technical nuance, and vanguard digital marketing strategies.
Content is marketing’s king but it is also the most difficult to create and manage. IVY rocks at creating, managing and promoting your custom content. Ad copy, news and feature stories, blogs, newsletters, website content, direct mail, videos, social media and the many things you want to say about your organization need a compelling voice. We research it, write and design it, clarify it, then track to show how your magnetic content is being seen and heard.
SEO, PPC, Remarketing, Call Tracking, Landing Pages and Roadblocks all lead to the centerpiece of your marketing strategy, your Website. Where, what and when to engage your digital persona is ever changing and sometimes we even stay up at night to find the best solutions for your organization.
Internal and external goodwill are important for your good health. We create the forum for you to build your reputation and importance with not just media but the people who matter to you and your organization most. We will tell your story in a way to make your prospects, customers, stakeholders and vendors notice your accomplishments. And when crisis strikes, we will be there to lead you through it.
