As senior living marketing continues to evolve and advance, digital marketing strategies and techniques are playing an increasingly prominent role in the lead generation and growth plans of senior living communities nationwide. And for good reason!

Leading-edge digital marketing methods, such as those used by SageAge Strategies, have the ability to do what traditional marketing tools simply cannot. That is, deliver your senior living community’s message with a degree of accuracy, timeliness and relevance that cannot be matched.

Now, SageAge Strategies has taken digital marketing expertise to a new level with our recent designation as a certified Google Partner for online marketing and advertising.

What Google Partner Status Means to Your Senior Living Community

Sean Ochester, Executive Vice President of Digital & Integrated Strategy for SageAge Strategies, says, “Google Partners are defined as marketing professionals and online experts who have been certified by Google to manage AdWords accounts. Google AdWords is the online advertising service developed by Google, where advertisers can display brief advertising copy, product listings and video content within the Google ad network to optimize their marketing results.

“To quality for Google Partner status, SageAge had to meet a series of stringent quality requirements. These included a ‘company performance requirement’ that specified that we had to demonstrate ‘solid overall ad revenue and growth’ to our clients, as well as to maintain and grow our customer base.

“To quote Google.com, ‘The Google Partner badge (certification) shows that specific Partners have passed Google AdWords product certification exams and are up to date with the latest product knowledge.’

“Our qualification as a Google Partner is another demonstration of our commitment to being the premier digital marketing resource in the senior living space.”
