Digital Marketing Tactics for Childcare Businesses

We're a results-driven internet marketing agency with more than 18 years of experience helping childcare businesses increase their online presence.

Our online marketing professionals help childcare providers attract new audiences and boost brand awareness with white-hat link building, paid search advertising, social prospecting, SEO strategy, and white-hat link building.

When it comes to converting parents and driving revenue, we can assist with social media advertising, sales funnel development, lead generation, conversion rate optimization, email marketing, and much more!

Let's discuss what our digital advertisers can offer your childcare business! Our digital marketing campaigns are often tailored to smaller-sized childcare businesses, but we can also supplement the marketing departments of large corporations in the same industry.

What is Digital Advertising for Childcare Providers?

Digital marketing for childcare providers is simply advertising products or services through online channels like websites, search engines, social media, email, and mobile apps.

Many childcare providers think internet marketing is just another term for search engine optimization or paid advertising. While both of those services are used in online advertising, neither fully explain the depth of a modern website advertising program for childcare providers.

Today's digital marketing campaigns often include dozens of digital advertising plans, all working in tandem to help your childcare business improve visibility and conversions.

Digital marketing campaigns for childcare providers should include things like:

  • Make your childcare business digital assets (apps, sales funnels, websites) more visible through search engine optimization, social media advertising, affiliate marketing, or paid advertising.
  • Improve your childcare business revenue with landing pages, sales funnels, and conversion rate optimization.
  • Track how visitors interact with your digital assets to figure out improvement areas, retargeting opportunities, or conversion rates.
  • Show the expertise, authority, and trust of your childcare providers through content marketing, video production, backlink building, review collection, social proof, and website improvements.
  • Grow your childcare business through email marketing, SMS marketing, and social media management.

Search Engine Optimization Strategies for Childcare Businesses

To bring your website into the first page of search results for competitive phrases you must take a holistic approach to SEO within your childcare provider digital marketing plan. To demonstrate value to search engines, it's crucial to review and optimize all three components of SEO, including technical, on-page, and off-page elements.

As we bring on new businesses in the childcare provider field for website advertising, we commonly discover glitches related to page speed, content quality, and the backlink strength. Technical, on-site, and off-page SEO plans can be employed to address these problems and improve your search engine optimization. Let's delve into each of these childcare business SEO campaigns in greater detail:

  • Technical search engine optimization includes factors such as site speed, website security, XML sitemaps, website architecture, structured data, Open Graph tags, and broken pages. These elements affect the way Google crawls and indexes your content, and how visitors interact with your childcare provider website. To tackle technical SEO challenges, the help of a website developer is usually required since these glitches are often tied to your childcare provider website's platform or theme. We employ a team of website developers with expertise in widely-used platforms like WordPress and Shopify.
  • Onsite search engine optimization includes factors such as page titles, meta tags, images, keyword research, content silos, content writing, internal linking, competitive analysis, frequently asked questions, and page titles. Improving these areas of the on-site SEO will allow search engines to better understand the value of your content and recognize your childcare business as an authority on the subject matter. Furthermore, it can assist in boosting key metrics such as "time on site" for your audience, demonstrating to search engines that you delivered useful information to the searcher. Content creation plays a crucial role in your childcare business digital marketing plan, and should not be overlooked.
  • Your backlink profile is an essential aspect of off-site search engine optimization, including factors such as the number of backlinks and referring domains, the relevance and authority of those backlinks, and signals from social media channels, among others. Building natural backlinks to your website and internal pages is crucial in conveying to search engines that your website and its content are authoritative and deserve recognition from external sources.

The important takeaway is to understand you can't focus on just one or two areas of search engine optimization in the digital marketing strategy of your childcare business. A fast website is important, but if your childcare business has no quality backlinks or useful content, it's unlikely that you'll see it on the first page of search results, except for some uncommon scenarios. Neglecting even one aspect of SEO can hinder your online visibility, even if other areas have been fully optimized. For a comprehensive internet advertising strategy that will keep your childcare business ahead of the competition, it's important to give equal attention to all areas of the search engine optimization checklist.

Link Building Tactics for Childcare Businesses

We've already briefly discussed the importance of building authoritative links in off-page SEO, but it's worth mentioning again since childcare businesses often don't understand this area of search engine optimization.

Competitive keywords and long-tail phrases on the first page of search results typically feature large retailers in product-specific searches and long-standing service providers in local search results. Upon further analysis of the exact pages that show up in these search results, you'll typically find that the number of backlinks pointing to those pages far exceeds the number pointing to relevant pages on your childcare business website. The reason for this is that search engines utilize backlinks as a measure of your childcare business website and content's authority on a specific subject.

To enhance the ranking of your web pages, it's essential to acquire quality backlinks to both your homepage and other internal pages through white-hat SEO backlink building services. It is critical to see this as a long-term endeavor for the digital marketing plan of your childcare business. It's important not to get overly excited for a few weeks and build dozens of backlinks, then abandon it for months or years. Instead, you should view this as a long-term commitment for your internet marketing plan. If you're not committed to the long-term process of building quality backlinks, your childcare business may continue to struggle to reach the first page of search results. The most effective way to improve your online presence is to create a long-term link-building strategy that steadily acquires high-quality backlinks from relevant websites and social platforms. Most of all, you need to keep your backlink profile natural by not overdoing exact-match phrases, buying numerous backlinks from private block networks (PBNs), or participating in any black-hat link-building methods.

We utilize numerous white-hat childcare provider link building techniques in our website advertising services, including:

  • Utilizing the “Skyscraper Technique” to build better versions of a ranked content article from a different childcare business.
  • Composing detailed articles and having them published on third-party websites as a guest post, with a link that directs readers to your childcare business website, can help promote your business.
  • You can contact respected websites in the childcare provider niche and propose content updates for their existing articles that might have become obsolete or failed to address a particular issue that concerns you.
  • Increasing your business's online exposure within your industry by registering your website in industry-specific directories with correct NAP citations (Name, Address, Phone).

Online Reputation Management (ORM) Tactics for Childcare Businesses

Search engine ranking algorithms and consumer purchasing decisions are influenced by your online reputation, which serves as a crucial trust factor. The influence of online reputation applies to diverse purchasing and decision-making scenarios, such as hiring a local service provider, purchasing a product online, or choosing childcare businesses. Positive and negative experiences of others with your childcare business are both intriguing to readers.

For localized service companies, we can help you develop a review generation program within your website marketing to increase the rate at which past parents leave reviews for your childcare business. This often involves collecting reviews on Google My Business, UpCity, Yellow Pages, Angi, Yelp, and other online review collection websites.

If your childcare business is centered around ecommerce, we can assist you in gathering product and company reviews. In the ecommerce industry, obtaining reviews that cover the quality of your products and the customer service provided by your childcare business is vital. When shopping online, customers desire the assurance that the product they are buying is of satisfactory quality or usefulness. Additionally, they require the confidence that you will deliver the order and offer assistance if they have any inquiries after the purchase.

We can assist professional service providers, like doctors or attorneys, in devising a structured process for obtaining client testimonials that projects a positive image of your childcare business, as part of your website advertising strategy. This includes review generation, reputation monitoring, online reputation repair, survey campaigns, and social media growth. SEO can be leveraged to refine the top search results on the first page, which can enhance the online reputation of your childcare business.

The risk of ignoring your online reputation is the loss of long-term business, which often isn't noticed until significant damage has been accumulated. Take control of your online reputation today to ensure you always put forth a better image than your competition.

Content Marketing Tactics for Childcare Businesses

Most childcare businesses use content marketing as a means of attracting, engaging, and retaining a high-interest audience by creating and sharing relevant blog articles, instructional videos, case studies, white papers, and other digital media. This internet marketing approach helps establish your childcare business as an industry thought leader, while also helping you dominate organic search results and the attention span of your target audience.

When your target parents begin to identify your childcare business as the source of valuable advice or guidance you will find it is easier to guide them through your sales funnel. We help childcare provider internet advertising clients put together the right content marketing service for their childcare business.

It is important to identify your target audience before starting a content marketing campaign. This will help you understand the best media format for the content, whether that be informative blog posts, detailed case studies, informal whitepapers, best-in-class listicles, or drip email campaigns. It will also help you determine the best delivery method, which can be from social media, search results, or some other medium.

We often help implement content marketing tactics for childcare providers that involve blog content, infographics, podcasts, videos, email campaigns, whitepapers, case studies, surveys, webinars, checklists, listicles, and lead magnets. We particularly like using the case study method because it is a powerful tool for showing expertise as a leading digital marketing service provider. These are all effective ways to market content if you implement them correctly for your childcare business.

Social Ads Game Plans for Childcare Businesses

The use of social media advertising in internet advertising involves paid advertising being run on social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, LinkedIn, and Facebook. These social media channels offer a quick and effective method for connecting to your target audience by allowing you to select interests, behaviors, and demographics. However, the downside can be the added cost of setting up the campaigns, creating landing pages, building out sales funnels, and performing conversion rate optimization to ensure the PPC advertising function as a proper lead generation or sales generation tool for your childcare business.

By leveraging the data sources of social media platforms, childcare businesses can hyper-target their audiences to deliver personalized content based on demographics, behaviors, interests, and other factors. While this is an enormous opportunity for most established childcare businesses, it can be an expensive lesson for businesses that aren't ready to take full advantage of social media marketing.

We help childcare businesses build out the necessary sales funnels and lead generation tools to make the most of their social ads. In addition, we suggest creating plans for conversion optimization and retargeting as part of our website marketing plans, as both plans can enhance the return on ad spend for your campaigns. Let's not forget to mention the freshness of your ad creatives. When running childcare business social ads plans, you must be mindful of ad decay and ad fatigue to prevent your campaigns from becoming stagnant and suffering from degraded performance.

Search Advertising Campaigns for Childcare Businesses

The use of search engine marketing in online advertising involves PPC advertising being run on search engines like Google and Bing. You will find that Google Ads and Bing Ads offer a quick and effective method for connecting your childcare business to an engaged audience that is actively looking for your products or services. The downside is the cost of setting up an effective and scalable paid ads campaign for your childcare business, which often involves the creation of landing pages or sales funnels that are optimized for conversion opportunities.

We help childcare businesses of all sizes build out the necessary landing pages and funnels to get leads and increase revenue, which makes paid ads a cost-effective online marketing plan. For any search engine marketing campaign, we recommend creating a plan for retargeting and conversion rate optimization to improve your return on investment.

Developing Revenue Funnels for Childcare Businesses

A sales funnel, or purchase funnel, is the visual representation of journeys taken by parents with your childcare business. The illustration of a sales funnel, which is often referred to as a marketing funnel or revenue funnel, looks just like a physical funnel you'd use to pour a liquid into a container. The top of the funnel is always larger because it illustrates the large number of potential parents that might interact with your childcare business. The funnel narrows at the bottom to represent the various exit points within the sales process. Naturally, the bottom of the funnel is the smallest part because it represents the number of people who converted through the generation of a lead or the sale of a product.

The development of a sales funnel for childcare businesses is more difficult than the explanation of its concepts. For example, some of the most successful sales funnels produce millions of dollars of value each day for their owners. To create a sales funnel that produces value for your childcare business, you must put thought into the goal of the sales funnel and the type of sales funnel you want to implement.

There are numerous types of sales funnels, including automated webinar funnels, lead magnet funnels, premium customer funnels, free plus shipping funnels, affiliate sales funnels, self-liquidating funnels, and dozens of others to consider for your childcare business. When you work with one of our childcare provider-focused website advertising experts, you will have an experienced digital marketer to bounce ideas off to help you determine the best type of revenue funnel for your childcare business. Alternatively, if you don't have an interest in being involved in the process, we can research more about your childcare business to determine the best funnels to explore and test within your digital advertising service.

Conversion Rate Optimization for Childcare Businesses

There is almost no reason to neglect conversion rate optimization within childcare provider online marketing services. This is a critical aspect of any type of website marketing for childcare providers since it directly impacts the ability of the marketing service to provide value for the childcare business paying for the marketing service.

Boosting conversion rates can have a huge impact on your bottom line. Before you pursue a CRO plan for your childcare business, it is important to understand what it is, how it works, and how to evaluate the service. This is a time-intensive process that involves plenty of iterative research and testing. What makes it most difficult is the CRO plans that work for one childcare provider might not work for another childcare provider.

The most common childcare provider CRO strategies include reducing form fields on contact forms, testing different call-to-action phrases, creating appealing headlines, implementing a sense of urgency, fixing mobile site glitches, improving website performance, adding exit-intent popups, defining value for the visitor, and adding trust and social proof signals.

True conversion rate optimization for childcare providers can become much more complex. To really dive into CRO, we must fully understand your business offer, your competitors, the strengths and weaknesses of your value proposition, how visitors are currently interacting with your digital assets, the online reputation of your childcare providers, and many other factors.

Email Marketing Strategies for Childcare Businesses

You can use email marketing within a digital strategy to boost brand awareness, drive website traffic, get sales and revenue, bring awareness to your social media profiles, engage past childcare providers, and gain valuable information about your target audience.

We help our internet advertising childcare business clients use Mail Chimp, Campaign Monitor, and Constant Contact within their email marketing services. These are robust email marketing tools to create subscriber lists, segment your audience, and even develop email marketing drip campaigns.

The most important part of email marketing is developing a plan to increase your subscribers. We help email marketing childcare business customers build and nurture their email marketing lists by implementing email collection opportunities within checkout processes, lead magnets, exit-intent popups, checkout processes, squeeze pages, referral programs, and numerous other methods.

Lead Generation for Childcare Businesses

For local service providers, the most important part of an inbound marketing program is lead generation. Not everything can be sold on the internet. For a lot of products and services, a phone conversation or in-person conversation is needed to close the sale. For these types of business industries, lead gen plans are going to be critical.

There are many types of lead generation tactics to consider, all of which have been tried and implemented by our internet marketing team, for childcare providers and other professionals, at some point in the past. The most common lead gen strategies for childcare providers include the creation of helpful content, retargeting past website visitors, nurturing past contacts with email marketing, engaging visitors with live chat, developing free tools for visitors to use, creating referral programs and affiliate programs, creating video content that can be shared online, setting up free webinars for visitors to attend, or offering helpful downloadable content in a lead magnet.

For most childcare provider online advertising campaigns where lead generation is a primary goal, our team will develop and implement one or more lead gen tactics in your digital assets to test what works best for your childcare business.

Video Marketing for Childcare Businesses

As a complete digital marketing company for childcare providers, we have our own in-house video production and video marketing department. This has been extremely helpful for childcare business content marketing plans that required creative video assets. More importantly, we've used our video production department for the creation of video ads on YouTube and video marketing within Facebook Ads campaigns. There are many great applications for video production within your online advertising strategy for your childcare business. You can use videos to demonstrate unique products, teach new concepts, and improve visitor duration. You can also implement videos within website advertising services to bring life to paid campaigns.

Why You Should Invest in Digital Marketing for Your Childcare Business

If you run an childcare business that depends on selling a product or service, at some point, you will contemplate some type of marketing to boost revenue. There are various justifications to weigh digital advertising against other, more traditional, marketing approaches for your childcare business. Let's go over some of the great reasons to implement our internet advertising strategy within your childcare business:

  • Digital marketing for childcare providers is often more affordable than other forms of marketing because it can be started at a low amount and scaled as success is measured.
  • With the assistance of informative reporting tools like Google Analytics, you can gain better understanding of how many visitors engaged with your brand, the length of time that your marketing efforts retained their attention, and whether you were able to drive them back to your website in the days, weeks, or months following their first interaction.
  • These days, individuals are consistently utilizing their phones, tablets, and desktop computers. Why not select a marketing style and channel that can track your target audience wherever they go?
  • Compared to print marketing, billboard ads, television commercials, and radio ads, website marketing provides much greater flexibility because it is much easier to make tweaks.
  • Online marketing for childcare providers provides the best capacity for user engagement. Obtaining comments, likes, or shares for non-digital advertisements of your childcare business can be very difficult.

6 Key Focus Points for Website Success

How to Develop a Digital Marketing Program for Childcare Businesses

To kickoff your digital marketing plan for your childcare business, it's vital to develop a plan that includes measurable business goals. Ensuring that everyone involved in the internet marketing campaign understands the ultimate goal is crucial in order to avoid spending time on ideas that will not have a positive effect on your childcare business.

1.) Identify your target audience

With a clear set of business goals in place for your childcare providers, you can move on to identifying a target audience. Knowing your target audience is crucial. By doing so, you can customize your online marketing efforts for your childcare business to the platforms your target audience uses, and ensure your message resonates with them.

2.) Find out what your audience needs

With your business goals and target customer established, you can now make an informed decision about the needs and search intent of your audience. By doing so, you can ensure that your childcare providers concentrate on the correct keywords for your online advertising, and that your content marketing strategies align with the demands of your audience.

3.) Begin with services that have a slower pace earlier on

If you intend to include search engine optimization in your childcare provider digital strategy, make it your top priority. The slowest moving digital marketing tactic for childcare businesses, and even other industries, is SEO. Improvements to your website, content, and backlinks for the internet advertising plans of childcare businesses can take several weeks or even months to fully reflect in search engine rankings.

4.) Creating high-quality landing pages or sales funnels should be a priority

At this stage, it may be worth exploring PPC advertising options for your childcare business website or other digital assets. It's crucial to create a landing page or sales funnel before sending paid traffic to your service page, home page, or product page. Most paid advertising campaigns for childcare businesses that have high bounce rates and low conversion rates make the mistake of sending traffic to a page that isn't optimized to convert a cold audience. The best lead generation strategies for childcare businesses employ the use of splash pages and sales funnels to lead people to the desired marketing outcome.

5.) Develop email sequences that are automated for retargeting purposes

After setting up plans to attract traffic to your childcare business website, it's important to think about how to engage with those visitors even after they've left your site. Converting every website visitor into a customer is not always possible, and that's why it's important to have a plan for engaging with those who leave without taking action. It is important to think about building an email marketing list, providing SMS alerts for new deals, or using tracking pixels to retarget visitors who recently left your website.

6.) Incorporate ongoing testing

Once you have implemented all of these website marketing tactics for your childcare business, it is time to enter the optimization and testing phase. This involves constantly measuring the success of your childcare provider-focused campaigns, searching for areas of improvement, and even trying new ideas that you read about in case studies or white papers. Your childcare business digital marketing plan should always be in a state of conversion rate optimization across all aspects.
