As experts in generational marketing, we know a thing or two about how the story of one’s life is full of transitions and evolutions.
Our agency’s story began in 1993 when Todd Harff, a VP of marketing for a regional builder, got tired of hiring (and firing) marketing agencies that spent more time on “big ideas” than on business goals. With his wife Judy, a successful designer, they launched a big idea of their own:
A right-sized strategic marketing agency, staffed with talented leaders, dedicated to delighting clients and passionate about creating value for clients.
Creating Results has evolved since its birth more than two decades ago. After years of successfully supporting real estate clients, we took a great leap forward in the early 2000s, committing to an exclusive focus on marketing to baby boomers and seniors.
This 50+ marketing focus has given us the opportunity to partner with clients in senior living, travel, financial services and more.
Then, Creating Results evolved again in 2015 when Kimberly Hulett, a leader in senior living marketing and sales, joined the firm and in 2017 when she became President and our founders moved into advisory roles.
One thing never changes, no matter what the stage: a talented and experienced team generating leads, helping clients reach their marketing and sales goals.

Creating Results’ Social, Silver Surfers e-book recently went live on Amazon and iBooks. This is the latest edition of a proprietary national study of Boomers' and seniors' digital marketing preferences. Three chapters explore what older adults do/don’t want from social media marketing, websites generally and housing/senior living websites specifically.
At times the picture the data paints isn’t so pretty.
Dissatisfaction with websites has risen with each edition of Social, Silver Surfers. Respondents have more to complain about and do so in greater volume.
Today we’re sharing insights which, if applied to website development, could help your organization become – if not the top – more effective with mature consumers.

As part of Creating Results' ongoing series into photography for 50+ marketing, we have examined the WHY of committing to good photography (older consumers' expectation of quality and the importance of delivering emotion) and the HOW (stock vs. custom photography). Now it’s time to plan the photo shoot and pick a photographer.
There are three basic steps to this process. Let's walk through them together.
#1. Determine What You Need
Before you decide to do a photo shoot you should already have determined your goals. Most organizations would significantly benefit from authentic, accurately representative images that you can't get elsewhere. In the senior living industry that means representing mature consumers doing things they enjoy doing — or perhaps aspire to do.
