Math provides a proper measuring system and metric to help us focus on the right things in our business, rather than blindly throwing stuff at the wall without actually fixing the problem.

In her book The Ultimate Child Care Marketing Guide, Kris lays out the four categories of metrics:

  1.  Customer value and acquisition.
  2.  Enrollment Funnel
  3.  Marketing ROI
  4.  Staff and Parent Retention

Enrollment funnel metrics are based on lead flow and conversion. The first thing she does with clients is to help them set up the tools and structures for consistent tracking. From that, they look at the conversions compared to the leads and put the core concepts into place to restructure and get on track to higher enrollments.

Kris gives a case study example of Gold Star member Nina using her math to take some extra funds and bonus her staff, set up some fun marketing to drive more enrollments and add value to the relationships of her existing parents.
