If You Build It, They Will Come - Not!
So you've decided to take your daycare business online with a brand new flashy website decked out with all the latest bells and whistles. Now you're probably thinking to yourself... "I'm in business now!", right?
Well... not exactly.
You're now faced with the challenge of getting "traffic" to your website. This is critical to the online success of your business. You can have a website that holds the key to eternal youth, but without any traffic, it's useless.
One of the easiest and most effective ways to get targeted traffic to your website is by submitting it to online daycare directories.
A daycare directory acts as an organized listing of daycare provider websites usually grouped by city, county, state, etc. Many of which offer free listings, while some may require a small monthly or annual fee.
Many don't realize just how valuable online daycare directories truly are. They are especially useful because they're smaller and more focused when compared to a general directory such as Yahoo.
You get your business in front of parents that are actively searching specifically for daycare services and these are the types of highly targeted web visitors that you want.
Not only do online daycare directories help potential clients find your website, but they also make it easy for search engine spiders to find you which in tern gets you higher search engine rankings (more backlinks = higher search engine ranking & page rank).
Submitting your business to online daycare directories is an excellent way to increase targeted traffic to your website. In fact, taking advantage of online daycare directories submissions should be part of your overall marketing strategy.
By submitting your website to the many online daycare directories out there, you can give yourself an edge on the competition. And in today's marketplace, you need every bit of edge that you can get.
