Service Area – Territory Avatar Optimization

Whether you are an independently owned agency or part of a franchise system, one of your first pre-opening tasks is to select and understand your Territory Avatar in your service area. There are few tasks more critical when it comes to the future success of your venture into the world of Home Care.

What is a Territory Avatar?

Simply put, the definition of an avatar is something visual used to represent non-visual concepts or ideas, like your ideal client or caregiver. Knowing your avatar will help you better optimize your territory, streamline your messaging, assure viability, and create more efficient strategies to grow your business. Many Franchisors provide a simple demographics map just as many independent owners "know" the area, but how many understand how to optimize for efficiency and results? Knowing your Avatar and applying that information can save you time, money, and resources.

Why is Optimization so Crucial?

It really starts with understanding and defining your objectives. What type of business are your trying to run? Are you focusing on the Private Pay space? State Payer sources such as Medicaid, Medicare or VA?

Next, you want to understand caregivers, who they are and where they live. Let's face it, if you have clients but no one to service them, do you even have a business? Hiring caregivers is a struggle for so many home care agency owners and understanding where they are within your service are, especially in relation to your clients and referral partners can have a significant impact on your overall business growth.

The final part of the equation has to do with understanding which facilities need to be a part of your overall strategies. Using a "shotgun" approach to marketing and business development, especially when trying to establish yourself in a new market, can cost you in both time and missed revenue opportunities.

Why Do You Need to Do a Viability Check?

If you are trying to buy a home care agency, it is important to know whether or not the area has the potential to produce, or will continue to produce as expected. There is much that a valuation will tell you, but much more that it will not. For example, how will the change of ownership affect the overall inflow of leads? How much depth is there in the client / referral facing side of the business? Don't find yourself in a situation where due diligence relies solely on numbers and taking the word of an owner trying to get top dollar for an existing business.
