Keep the Holidays Happy for Your Kids and Grandkids

Empty nesters can put a lot of pressure on the holiday season. As former “helicopter parents,” we no longer have day-to-day involvement with (or control over) our adult children and many of us are joining the ranks of grandparents.

Continuum Crew Selected as Agency of Record for AgeTek

We are pleased to announce that we have been selected as the marketing agency of record by Aging Technology Alliance™ (AgeTek™), a trade group of companies that develop and/or market technology-based products designed for the senior market.

AgeTek represents companies and organizations dedicated to promoting the awareness, benefits and value of products and services for our aging society. Their members’ products and services allow seniors to remain independent and age in place at home, as well as empower many seniors to enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle while securing their mobility. AgeTek is focused on bringing greater awareness to their industry, products, and to its select group of companies that are working together (and independently) to develop better-designed, less expensive and better-tested products for the senior consumer.

Continuum Crew will counsel AgeTek on thought leadership activities and member engagement activities. We will also develop and implement an advertising and media plan, with interactive media services (including the execution of email campaigns and search engine optimization), marketing collateral production, public relations and social media activities.

“As we seek to gain the attention of public policy makers, regulators, lawmakers, advocacy groups, mass media and the general public about the benefits of technology appropriately designed for seniors, we know aligning ourselves with Continuum Crew is the perfect choice,” said Peter Radsliff, Board Chairman, AgeTek. “Led by Lori Bitter, she and her team have a strong presence in this space and an outstanding reputation. They know how to most effectively reach these audiences. We look forward to what this partnership will yield as we grow our organization.”
