Happy birthday to us,

Happy birthday to us,

Happy birthday, dear Sage Age…

It’s hard to believe it, but on August 3, we will be celebrating our 36th birthday. And boy, oh boy, the world looks a lot different than it did when we opened our doors in 1983.

Back then The A-Team and Mama’s Family were on our televisions, and “Every Breath You Take” and “Africa” were topping the charts. Acid-washed jeans, big shoulder pads, crimped hair and punk rock chic could be found in just about everyone’s closet.

Refreshing Your Brand for Better Results

When you consider the way your community is perceived by the public, both in terms of prospective customers as well as your broader audience, it’s your brand you’re thinking about. “Brand” can seem like a nebulous concept, but in general, a good way to frame it is this: it’s what comes to mind (and to heart!) when your name is mentioned.

Creating a Seamless Brand Experience, Online and Offline

With all the buzz around online, digital marketing, it’s easy to lose sight of more traditional – but still very viable – offline marketing avenues. Some large organizations have entire departments separately devoted to running independent campaigns and programs that, to a consumer, bear no resemblance to one another.

Staying Fresh: When Did You Last Review Your Brand?

As a group, consumers are a pretty fickle population. That includes you and me, too! Just take a look at your own habits for evidence. What excites, thrills or intrigues you about a particular brand and their product or service could easily change tomorrow. The brands you liked last week, last year or ten years ago are probably not the same as the brands you rely on and enjoy today.

High Quality Photos and Video: Why a Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words (and Views)

We’re all familiar with the expression, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” As old as this phrase is, it is still highly descriptive and relevant.

In today’s world of e-commerce with senior living “shoppers” using the Internet as their “go-to” medium for seeking information, we could also say, “A picture (and video) is worth a thousand views.”
