Something New at New LifeStyles

On July 15th, the latest version of NewLifeStyles.com went live.  It’s not a complete overhaul, but an updated site with some new features and a lot of programming dedicated to search engine optimization and increasing leads to our partners.

Just in the first week, these changes have led to an increase in organic traffic of over 20%.  This is a great time to try the web site.  All traffic is monitored, so you know exactly how your investment is paying off.

If you want to try the new site, mention this blog and you will get 12 months of service for the price of six month, regardless of which options you choose.   Reply back to this e-mail for rates and details.

Fall is coming and that’s a great time to accomplish your goals for the rest of the year.  To take charge in your community or with your care providing business and prospect through all of the available channels.  Print is still a very viable option, as studies show people, especially older demographics put more trust in what they see in print.  Of course, you have to have a web presence, utilizing 2-3 online senior housing and care sites and having your web site up to date.

It’s a big job, but by working with us here at New LifeStyles you can accomplish all of this and more.  Contact us today to learn about advertising packages that include a new web site.  It truly is one stop shopping with a company with 30 years in the industry and a portfolio of over 300 web sites.

Need motivation??  Mention this blog and get 50% off a new full or half page ad (if you haven’t been in the guide for at least one year).

Currently, we are working on the following guides:

Washington DC/Maryland/No. Va

Nevada

Atlanta

SF Bay area

Pittsburgh/SW PA

Please contact us today for more information on our guides to senior living and care, our web site and/or a new site for you.  In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the summer!  Doug

Worst Month of the Year?

January wrap Up

Now that a pretty good Super Bowl is in the books and the forecasting weather rodent has seen his shadow, we are face-to-face with February.  Unless you cherish Valentine’s Day, the rest of the month is pretty blah. So, you need some projects to keep your mind off the gateway to spring, the much more promising month of March.

How’s your web site? Is it getting you the traffic and conversions you seek?  Is it mobile friendly, or does trying to view your site or, even worse do anything on it seem impossible on your phone?  Take some time to review it, compare it to your competitors and test it on the various devices.

Are you happy with its look and analytics?  Great!  If not, it’s time to contact New LifeStyles.

We have been busy designing a number of new looks that can make your web site far more desirable and attractive to search engines.  Reply today and we’ll take 14% off any newsite!

Need motivation for advertise in the New LifeStyles guides for the next round starting in March?? Mention this blog and get 50% off a new full or half page ad (if you haven’t been in the guide for at least one year).  It will be a great decision and we’ll have you up on our site in 24 hours at no cost.

Currently, we are working on the following guides:

Nevada

Atlanta

SF Bay

Pittsburgh Area

Miami/South Florida

Please contact us today for more information on our guides to senior living and care, our web site and/or a new site for you.  In the meantime, enjoy the great month of February!  Doug

Happy New Year, here’s to a great 2018!

It’s been a slow start to the year, with last week seeming like its still a holiday, but today it felt like time to get 2018 off and running.  Most budgets have been set and while time is still being used to wrap up 2017, most energy is spent figuring out the best way to spend your dollars in 2018 and make the best of your community.

What do you get from New LifeStyles in 2018?:

  •         Extensive distribution in your community aimed at your demographic
  •         Leads from qualified seniors and families
  •         A new web site aimed at maximizing its clients return on investment.
  •         A Mobile site with full search capabilities that can lead people right to your door
  •         Changes in the guide to better feature our paid advertisers.

All of this for one cost that will meet your budget.  Oh, is this the year you need a new web site in order to be up to date and mobile responsive?  Our web design group has over 350 sites live in your industry.

These area guides are currently in progress, call or email today for information:

Bowling into Fall

Bowling for Harvey Relief

Last week at New LifeStyles, we had our big end of Summer activity, the Labor Day bowling outing. It’s a great time to bring everyone together outside the office, mark the end of summer and laugh and cheer at the antics on the lanes.  We made it even better by turning it into a fund raising event for Hurrucan Harvey Relief.

Spring into Fall

End of Summer

The signs of summer winding down are upon us.  The first fake NFL game has been played, kids are making the trek back to college, back to school sales are everywhere and the last few vacations are being taken. After Labor Day, it seems like everyone gets intensely focused back on work and their companies.

It is a great time to accomplish your goals for the rest of the year.  To take charge in your community or with your care providing business and prospect through all of the available channels.  We all know that census is a real struggle and advertising dollars are at a premium.  You have to make the right decisions now and going forward into 2018.

Print is still a very viable option, as studies show people,especially older demographics put more trust in what they see in print.  Of course, you have to have a web presence,utilizing 2-3 online senior housing and care sites and having your web site up to date.

It’s a big job, but by working with us here at New LifeStyles you can accomplish all of this and more.  Contact us today to learn about advertising packages that include a new web site.  It truly is one stop shopping with a company with 30 years in the industry and a portfolio of over 300 web sites.

Currently, we are working on the following guides:

Nevada

Atlanta

SF Bay

Pittsburgh Area

Miami/South Florida

All have great distribution and excellent online traffic.  Our site, continues to perform well, with a 50% increase in traffic and improvement in all quality traffic numbers.
