Analyzing The Classifieds On This Site?

Recommended Posts

Most of the time the only active ads on this site are in 'caregivers seeking patients.'  Most of these ads share one glaring deficit, as they leave the reader to figure out just which area of our state a given caregiver is willing to serve. Some caregivers state the town or county they work out of, and readers can guess if they don't know shiiiiiit about where that town or county is, it's a helllllllllll of a long ways off.

Month after month 6 to 9 ads ( always less than a page of ads) appear in this single category, most of them omitting mention of where a given caregiver is willing to serve.

 

I advise making it simple for peeps with wording like:  will serve any patient within x miles of battle creek.

blanc:   from the little bit of anecdotal evidence i hear, matches just don't occur on this site, so i'd say cgs are so safe they remain by themselves. I doubt that's why the pay for an ad, to remain isolated from patients, but that is the usual result.  I know of only 2 matchups that have occurred.

 

everyone:  if you are more informed than I, please speak up.

I connected with three patients directly from this site since 2009. None of the connections were a result of an ad. I just reached-out to new patients via PM after they posted questions and I thought we might be a good fit, and we connected well. I got maybe nine or so referrals from these patients as time passed.

As a caregiver in southwest michigan, Berrien and Van Buren Counties, I have gotten emails from this site from people seeking caregivers.  I have never posted a classified ad (not on this 'new' site, I did on the old site from many years ago) but potential patients must have seen me and reached out to me.
