First and foremost, we are free to use and free to list on. Anyone can list their health-related services for free but we must approve each one. The information on the County Health Care Guide is a service to the community and we do not ask the public for any personal information nor do we track them. We exist to serve one purpose... To educate and provide health information to the public.
We do not rate businesses, promote them or exclude them from our site. If we find a licensed business we can list them. If we are aware of community outreach programs or resources, we promote them too. However, this does not happen by itself and it takes time and effort to get this done; therefore, we offer subscriptions to businesses, to offset the cost of building and maintaining this valuable resource. If we could do it all for free we would.
Be Involved in your Community
Through ongoing partnerships with your local community health resources, you can help us establish a grassroots educational, health based resource portal which will continue to grow. County Health Care Guide's "Territory Managers" (TMs) are people just like you who are looking to help educate their communities to available health resources while earning a potentially healthy supplemental or primary income.
What are Territory Managers (TMs)?
Territory Managers are local nurses, social workers, health care marketers, geriatric care managers and other health care providers who are looking to empower their communities while earning an income. Most of the TMs are already plugged into their local communities and the County Health Care Guide can act as a conduit to help their local resources get noticed and promote their business. Remember, this is a community service and as TMs we want to help the community. Although County Health Care Guide will pre-populate your territory with available state or federal data for you, there are local resources that we are not aware of. TMs gather this information and plug it into a simple template on the site as a service to their community.
Help your Local Businesses Noticed
All TMs receive a starter kit rack cards to share with local businesses, hospital, discharge planners and anyone else who may use the site as a resource or would benefit from being spotlighted on the site. County Health Care Guide is focused on creating real connections and meaningful partnerships between you and your community. The relationships that you forge through these connections ensure that your local business' exposure will grow.
Does Every County have to have a TM?
The short answer is no. If we receive enough requests from businesses in a county to list their information we can open the territory. However, we do not want to have counties listed on the site that have only limited data. Because of this we encourage, welcome and share profits with TMs. Territory Managers help spread the word, help the gather and enter data and because they know their territories they help ensure there are no obsolete or inappropriate listings on the site.
Can I Earn Money by Helping You Grow?
Any licensed health related business or other community resources can list their services free of charge on the site. To really be noticed these businesses can spotlight themselves with photos, web links, downloadable brochures, videos, social media and more. Many local businesses cannot afford their own website or are just looking for another way to separate themselves from the competition, a listing on the County Health Care Guide can help meet this need. With annual subscription rates, as low as $249.00/year there is a template for any budget. As a TM, you are able educate your community on the services provided by the County Health Care Guide and in turn you keep 50 - 100% of all profits made from subscriptions within your territory depending on your contribution.

Please explain in the email why you would like to manage a territory and list any education or experience that you believe would lend itself to making you a great TM.
