3 Strategies to Increase Your Return on Investment
Increasing your return on investment means attracting more clients, or eliminating unnecessary expenses. We have solutions for either approach:
Plan Around Internal Competition
Some brands struggle to keep all of their franchisees happy because internal competition affects their profitability. Strong franchises are designed so that the success of one franchisee benefits the entire family, but some franchisors neglect to space locations out properly, which results in serious over-saturation and unprofitable internal competition. If you’ve ever seen a city block crowded with Starbucks locations, you’ve witnessed this phenomenon.
Competing with rival brands is hard enough; strong franchises need to eliminate internal competition with careful territory planning. At Executive Care, we set our franchisees up with exclusive territory rights, giving them a guaranteed market of 500,000 residents or more. Territory offerings are not pre-set, but rather are the result of careful collaboration between the franchisee and franchise development team. Each territory is selected to maximize the number of residents that meet your demographic and financial criteria.
Diversify Your Offerings To Access Multiple Revenue Streams
At-home senior care is not all about medical care. American seniors have diverse needs, many of which are non-medical in nature, including companionship, housekeeping, nutritional assistance, and daily living assistance. Franchises that limit themselves to one form of care service greatly restrict their profitability in this market. At Executive Care, we offer seven potential revenue streams.
Understand That Marketing Is The Key To Monetization
You might have the best senior care service in the country, but you won’t be able to help anybody (or build a healthy return on your investment) unless local residents know you exist. Don’t be reluctant to market yourself in this day and age; don’t think of it as “selling out,” but rather giving greater visibility to the care services you offer, which is a tremendous boon to your community. Don’t limit yourself to newspaper ads in the Internet Era, either! At Executive Care, we support your local marketing efforts with a polished national promotional campaign that helps establish your brand as a leader in the homecare industry.
