That “new car” smell. Scooping into a freshly opened jar of peanut butter. Stepping onto new-fallen snow. What’s the common denominator? Well, besides being strangely satisfying, they’re all the start of something new. And we, as humans, love the idea of something fresh and new.

Each man reaches out to touch the elephant and explains to the others what they experience. One takes hold of the trunk and exclaims that it’s “like a snake.” Another touches the leg and says the elephant is “like a tree.” Another says an elephant is like a wall because of its side, while yet another says it is like a rope because of its tail, and so on.

Developing Effective Marketing Plans and Budgets

Pieces of a puzzle

There’s an old Yiddish saying that goes “We make plans and God laughs.” While that may seem a bit of a heavy way to start out a blog post about marketing, we think it’s pretty appropriate when you’re talking about the senior living space – specifically, when it comes to developing an effective marketing plan that also aligns with a marketing budget.

We all know someone who’s always coming up with ideas for the next big business venture, product line or creative endeavor, and they’re all good ideas.
