How to Track Daycare Marketing & Enrollment

Preschool Teacher & Child Playing with BlocksWith the current economy, maintaining a stable and profitable enrollment base, as well as an updated and active waiting list, are key ingredients to the prosperity of your child care, daycare or preschool. Maintaining records to track the success of various advertising campaigns, new contacts generated, referral sources, and how many contacts move on to  become customers, are all important ingredients to successful growth.

In today’s post, we’ll take a look at using Procare Software® to track these items so owners and directors can reliably see results.

The website clearly had a much higher rate of new enrollment and, depending on the actual cost of each ad, it likely had a lower cost per lead as well.   Continue reading
