Keep Your Business Information Up to Date: Review Your Digital Checklist Today

Now is the perfect time to maximize your success by ensuring that prospects are contacting you through the proper channels, and that what you have listed reflects your business hours.

Here’s a checklist of items to review through the Content Management System (CMS), your website, and other areas of your business:

Confirm your address and phone numbers are correct on your website. Simply go to your website and look at the top of the page to ensure your address and phone number are listed correctly, that way you don’t miss any contact from potential clients. Also, be sure to look on your Contact Us page to see if additional numbers listed are correct. If an update is necessary, complete a change of address form located on Members page (under Network Development Quick Forms and Links on the right-hand side). Any additional office addresses, or changes in office locations must be submitted to Franchise Administration before being updated on your website. If you have questions, please email PatriciaCobb@Corp.ComfortKeepers.com. NOTE: It’s imperative that you inform us of your move before the fact so that way we have ample time to update our internal listings. Confirm you have the correct email address for your website contact forms. Make sure you do not miss any contact form submissions by having the wrong email address listed in the CMS. To make sure you have the right email address, just log into the CMS and check your Contact Manager module. When reviewing, be sure to check all of the forms on the left side, as each form is configurable for email addresses. Update your AgingCare.com Information. The past few years, Comfort Keepers – through the National Brand Fund (NBF) – has partnered with AgingCare.com to provide qualified leads to franchisees. To help prevent missing a lead, be sure that they’re being sent to the right place. AgingCare has created a self-update portal for franchisees to login and update this information, or contact Sadie Littel, at littel@agingcare.com. Confirm your address and phone number are correct on your social networking sites. If you have Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Yelp, YouTube, or LinkedIn pages for your business, confirm that they have the correct address, phone number, website address, and 24 hours of operation noted. Confirm your address and phone number are correct on your digital brochure(s). If you’ve moved and need to update your address and/or phone number, head over to CK Brand, scroll down to the bottom (in the Ad Requests section),...
