Describe the target audience for your print design
Owners/Executives of Home Care agencies (known as "Providers")-- These are business people responsible for managing staffs of 10-500 caregivers. They are responsible for day-to-day management as well as developing and executing marketing efforts within their respective agencies. In essence, these providers offer skilled, non-medical home caregivers who will go into a person's/or family's home and provide the day-to-day care for an elderly individual. These owners/executives promote their services to individuals who need help with activities from dressing, bathing/grooming to taking medications. Often the individual who purchases these services is a loved one of the individual (spouse, adult offspring). There is a trend in home care that many families try to fulfill the needs of the elderly individual themselves -- after time, many of these "family caregivers" find that they need more help or even a respite from care -- this is when they turn to a home care agency.
What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your print design?
1. The FLC (Family Learning Center) website addresses a growing need for home care information among family care providers. Currently, there are limited resources for families who have to care for a loved one (elderly spouse or parent). With the FLC website, family care providers can look up information from daily care to first aid and have access to the information 24/7.
2. The FLC website is a powerful tool with over 50 training topics -- all geared for the family care provider. Information is provided in several different formats including online courses, how-to videos and simple tip sheets.
3. The FLC website is a tremendous sales/lead generation tool. The individual company controls the registration process and can add their own logo to the website creating a customized look. By promoting the FLC website through community groups, adult senior centers and medical services providers, the home care.
4. The marketing concept is for home care agencies to build a relationship with these family caregivers -- providing them the information they need to care for their loved one -- but when the time comes when these family caregivers need more help they will turn to the home care agency who has already been providing them care information.
