Marketing Toolkit for Childcare Providers.
We were asked by the Early Years Department at Northumberland County Council to produce a step by step guide to marketing toolkit for childcare providers-nursery settings and childminders,  many of whom had no marketing experience' The problem is  that childcare settings in the public sector are  suffering from increased competition from the private sector. All nursery settings were having to operate more commercially yet many managers had no real marketing knowledge .They needed an easy to understand practical guide to help them plan, organise, create, and evaluate effective marketing campaigns. Our marketing toolkit proved so successful we were asked by Tees Valley and Sandwell local authority in Birmingham  to design and produce copies for their Early Years providers. It is unique in that each edition is adapted to the branding of each local authority. Custom written to their industry it has helped childcare providers compete more effectively in the markeplace. You can find out more about this product in our portfolio section under Marketing Toolkit .There is a testimonial from our client in Teesside that comments on how well the product has been received and how it has been is a valuable tool to childcare providers in the region.
