PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y., May, 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Primary Wave Media, the nation's leading provider of toll-free vanity telephone number marketing services, announced today that two of its brands, 1-800-HOMECARE and 1-800-HOSPICE, have partnered with Caring.com, the leading online destination for family caregivers. The agreement will expand Caring.com's homecare and hospice directory listings through the addition of over 150 nationwide homecare and hospice providers. As a result of the partnership, inbound inquiries received by 1-800-HOMECARE and 1-800-HOSPICE from a territory without an active licensee will be routed to the appropriate Caring.com directory member.
Caring.com, 1-800-HOMECARE and 1-800-HOSPICE will benefit from shared website traffic and a referrals vetting system to generate new customers.
"We are constantly exploring potential cross channel integrations to enhance our product offering to our entire network of brand licensees," said John Borley, Director of Marketing at Primary Wave Media. "The addition of a directory listing on Caring.com for our Homecare and Hospice licensees is an opportunity to further develop our marketing services package and enhance the business-building value we provide to existing and potential customers."
All leads generated for 1-800-HOMECARE or 1-800-HOSPICE members through Caring.com will be sent to the appropriate regional network member following a pre-qualification screening by 1-800-HOMECARE's national call center. In addition to adding two of the nation's leading homecare directories to its site, Caring.com will direct all incoming leads received from an unlicensed territory to the relevant network member.
"Caring.com is dedicated to providing family caregivers with the most comprehensive and trusted information, resources and referrals available," said Katie Roper, Vice President of Sales for Caring.com; "The addition of 1-800-HOMECARE and 1-800-HOSPICE's providers to Caring.com's senior living directory is another important step in allowing caregivers to have all of the information they need at one online location."
