Need Help Getting the Word Out?

I’ve been working for the past coupe of years on encouraging pastors/ministers/congregational leaders to start childcare centers in their buildings — because I think that would be a great contribution to society. It would help children, their family, their neighborhood, and indeed the nation. There is robust, replicated, reasonable research that shows that congregationally affiliated preschools outperform others. There are lots of reasons for that.
Today, I just thought it might be helpful to get the word out about existing congregationally affiliated, or other high quality centers. I’ve spent quite a lot of hour learning marketing. I’d be happy to share with you. I have developed the “Business Cascade” fro a client: goging from value proposition to marketing to advertising and sales implementation.
Who else would like to work with me on this? Ten session program for on $997.00 — but only until April 30th.
After that, it goes into the Consulting or Online course category.

We specialize in helping congregationally affiliated child development centers, in ALL aspects, because we feel this is an important mission to the world. Few understand both the business, the board, and the educational dynamics of CDCs. We do. We can help. Conflict reduction, board training, marketing, curriculum development, character development, and management.
We have long specialized in conflict reduction. Most of our customers have been denominations, non-profits, and schools. Please see our book, written, especially with the Austin corporate market in mind. Workshops available tailored for your specific denomination.
