As a new In-home childcare Provider business owner, I am always searching for ways to grow my childcare business. I have done all of the following techniques such as:
Developing and distributing flyers
Marketing (business cards, postcards)
Advertising (local newspapers)Online directory
Developing my own Web site
Developing a referral process
and of course word of mouth.
I do believe that in time and lots of hard work any business that you truly believe in will be successful and grow to its full potential. Going out and getting customers is where the magic happens.
Nothing else matters if I don't have customers. The majority of time and effort must focus on finding and retaining customers. Having a smart marketing plan to attract interested people, and then convert them to customers is my number one priority. I try not to get overwhelmed about how to dive in: I keep saying to myself, "just start where you are". One thing I did was create a list of potential prospects and built a social media presence for my business where I can engage directly with my target market.
Dreaming about how fabulous I want my business to be is good; but doing somethings to get it there is sensational. It's all about the hustle: the decisions I make and the actions I take each and every day – Prayfully, that'll get me where I want to go.
