Members of the Imagewërks Business Development Team attended the recent Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference in San Antonio, Texas on April 15-17, and had a great time meeting attendees and learning at the educational sessions.
The consensus is that due to the construction boom across the country for senior living communities, the competition is fierce amongst quality senior housing providers. This boom has garnered expensive upgrades/updates and additional amenities for established communities, in particular, to stay competitive.
According to research done by Tripp Umbach, the total economic impact of senior living ($246.9 billion) ranked higher in the U.S. than the auto manufacturing, air transportation, and the hotel/motel industries—and it's projected to keep growing in the coming years.
So, what does this mean for the senior living market?
Communities are investing more of their marketing budget into digital channels to attract new residents. The unforeseen problem is that many of these communities don't have the bandwidth to maintain their digital channels effectively, due to either a lack of expertise or trained personnel. Where can they turn for help?
