Social Media and Attraction Marketing Techniques for Childcare Centers
Write a Post...
Does that phrase overwhelm you?
You log onto your childcare center’s Facebook page (or other social media) and you are met with those three words - Write a post… And suddenly, you have no idea what to post, what to say or how to say it.
You start wondering if others will get the funny joke, the intended pun, or if they will be offended by what you wrote.
Using social media for your childcare center is crucial. Prospective employees and prospective families will find you on social media and check out what you have been up to.
They want to know if their child(ren) will fit in, or if their family will feel welcome. Teachers want to know if they will feel like they belong. It is more than just a billboard, it is a conversation.
You never get a second chance at a first impression. Make sure you are putting your best out there with these simple tips.

“I don’t have time to take more training. I already work full-time.”
