Happy Monday and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Whether you're at home watching the highlights from last night's crazy playoff game between the Vikings and Saints, or in the office like we are, take a few minutes to catch up on the most engaging marketing content from the past week.

This week, we'll take a look at an article published on US News & World Report that reveals the results of a recent cost of care survey. We'll also find out the number one way in which senior living communities can increase engagement among residents in an article by Senior Housing News.

Happy Tuesday! We hope everyone had a happy and hearty Thanksgiving. Each Monday, we do a ‘roundup’ of the most engaging mature marketing content. However, due to the high volume of emails your inbox probably received yesterday, we thought we’d give your inbox a break. So, here is our roundup… on a Tuesday! According to Skilled Nursing News, 33 skilled…

Next week is Halloween.

In many places, there will be no costumed children going door-to-door for sweets. Instead they’ll hit malls, church parking lot “trunk or treat” events, or another alternative. Like the candy sold in stores, Halloween has been shrunk down and packaged for our safety.

While Halloween may no longer be a night of frights, it turns out that seniors do have some valid fears … about digital marketing!

Our Social, Silver Surfers research revealed two areas that spook the very consumers we hope to enchant on our websites.

Today we went live on Amazon and iBooks with the latest e-book in our "Social, Silver Surfers" study of Boomers' and seniors' digital marketing preferences.

This one-of-a-kind proprietary national study of 40+ers began in 2010. That first Social, Silver Surfers effort resulted in a small PDF that captured what older adults like / don’t like about websites and social media. Creating Results repeated and expanded our research in 2013, this time publishing an Amazon e-book which captures the data and related marketing recommendations.

The most important result, however, has been the improved effectiveness of our client’s digital marketing programs.

We’ve also received positive feedback from those who are targeting Baby Boomers and seniors in a variety of industries. These marketing pros tell us their ROI improved by applying the tips from Social, Silver Surfers.

That motivated us to go even further with this new e-book.

Why does my car give me such a strong physical and emotional reaction? Is it the little logo on the back bumper? As the Creating Results team tells our clients, a brand is not just a logo design. It is the entire consumer experience.

A brand is the fundamental emotional experience that you want consumers to have every time they come in contact with your product – it’s employees, residents, services, or even its physical space, campus or buildings within. It’s why consistency and clarity are essential.

Creating Results has had the pleasure of working on many branding projects. Efforts for a Boomer-focused tourism destination and for a senior living organization can help to illustrate how a brand’s personality can influence the design of a logo.

Kids are heading back to school and we have less than a month to go of summer. Between deadlines at work and (maybe) planning that one last hurrah for the summer, we hope you have allocated a bit of time to catch up with the most engaging content in this week's Monday roundup.

First, we'll look at the improvements LeadingAge suggests we make to long-term care and support services.

In the second overview, we'll gear up for the amenity wars with Property Management Insider and learn about the ways you can upgrade your community.

Every Monday we review our most engaging and shared articles from the previous week. First up this week; more seniors than ever are using their mobile devices to access the news. In the 50+ marketing item, we report how industry leaders, experts and providers are coming together to fight ageism.

SESSION: “How the Macroeconomics of Healthcare and Shifting Demographics are Changing the Future of Aging Services”

SPEAKER: James Orlikoff, consultant named one of the 100 most powerful people in healthcare

Orlikoff noted that big trends such as macroeconomics and demographics are already impacting providers of health services to older adults. These have given consumers more choice than ever before, which is actually a risk to providers. Why? The average consumer can not only choose your competitors, he/she can choose not to use the service at all. (Most American consumers do not have enough cash to purchase care on their own, so they’ll stop using healthcare and/or default on medical bills.) To stay relevant regardless of whatever curve ball the healthcare game may pitch next, Orlikoff encouraged attendees to focus on four strategies:
