How to effectively communicate with registered families?

Is a challenge for all children’s centres as you will no doubt know and experience every week!? However, by adopting the one virtually universal communication method – SMS text marketing – 15 Children’s centres in Hertfordshire/Bedfordshire are already finding it easier to reach out to their registered families and encourage them to use their centre.

Keep your centre busy with text reminders

“3 Dragon Marketing installed and trained us on our text message marketing service that is working well. As well as for our dads group, we have used it to text event reminders to all our registered clients about forthcoming courses, with good effect. I would certainly recommend text marketing to other children’s centres” –

How does it work?

It’s a simple to use yet powerful text marketing service that allows you to send Text messages when you want to reach out to your “registered” families. All you need is a PC and connection to the Internet.

How could you use SMS marketing at your Children’s centre?

  • SMS appointment reminders for recurring events like Stay & Play, Dads groups etc
  • Texting of news and events – Open days, Half term activities etc
  • Information reminders – opening hours over holiday periods
  • Mass alerts – weather closures
  • Staff updates / alerts

How much does it cost?

For a one-off project fee of just £350 (plus VAT) 3DM will set the system up for you complete with 100 text credits, but more importantly help and train you on how to get the relevant client information from eStart and onto the texting system. We will set up together some real “text reminder groups” (e.g. Stay and play, Saturday Dads etc.) there and then so you’re ready to start straight away if you wish!

What next?

Hopefully the above gives a pretty good introduction/taster to the idea.

However, I’m sure you’ll have some questions you’d like to ask! From experience of working with the other Children’s centres, these questions are often easiest to address by offering you a NO OBLIGATION demonstration so you can see for yourself just how easy the system is to use. So either fill in our contact form OR  give us a call.

Seeing, as they say, really is believing!
