Marketing a Foster Care Services Business

Small and medium size foster care services businesses can compete and even outperform larger competitors. All it takes is the right marketing plan.

If you are a business leader who sees marketing as a path to give your foster care services business a larger market presence you're not alone.

It's not hard to convince most business owners that marketing plays a vital role in strategic planning. But in a zero-sum economy, there are winners and losers -- and here are some of the things that will help keep your foster care services business at the top of the heap.

Viral Marketing

Will Rogers said, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. However, you can put salt in his food." That's kind of how viral marketing works. By including viral elements in a campaign for a foster care services business, the hope is that your brand and product line will take on viral qualities. But despite the risk, viral marketers can influence the likelihood of success. One strategy is to launch a viral marketing initiative by inviting a select group of customers to test your products and post their experiences on their social networking pages.

Strategic Partnerships

When multiple interests join together in a strategic partnership, they gain foster care services businesses economies of scale, not to mention a larger promotional footprint. Joint ad campaigns, mailings and other marketing initiatives can be conducted on either a short- or long-term basis, as long as each partner is involved in the creation of messaging and has approval authority over the content that is released.

Cost Tracking

The economy is a constant concern for people who own a foster care services business. You can't afford to waste money on inferior marketing resources. Since every dollar counts, it pays to buy mailing lists from trusted vendors. Good mailing lists are money in the bank; they deliver leads, revenue and most importantly, new customers.

Another way to control costs is to conduct periodic across-the-board cost audits designed to highlight areas that are ripe for reductions.
