Our Successful Clients Tell It Best

DawnTry_Cropped-267x300I’ve gotten a 100+% return from the Boot Camp, you’ve made a difference in my life and the lives of my family!

“I would recommend Kris Murray to anyone seeking marketing advice for childcare. Kris is very knowledgeable, and offers excellent advice and services. In just over 6 weeks, I have increased visibility and have made superb inroads into fully optimizing my childcare and website and gaining top rankings already for our keywords and phrases. Now, if someone types “childcare for my area” in Google, my site is ranked #3 and in Yahoo! we’re ranked #4, which is awesome! The training that Kris has provided will have a lasting effect on me. She has taught me how to fish… as opposed to giving me a fish! Emotionally my self-management skills and self confidence have improved. I have become a more capable leader and innovator. I’m more aggressive and goal oriented. The Enrollment Bootcamp and Kris’s personal advice has single-handedly revolutionized how I interact with clients. I can see my big future and the people I need to share it with in life and in business. Thanks for all you’ve brought to the table. Your Boot Camp has been the best investment I’ve made for myself period. I’ve gotten a 100 +% return, you’ve made a difference in my life and the lives of my family … for the better! Thank You Kris!”

25 Percent Increase in Private Pay Families in Six Months!

“Using Kris’s strategies, we were able to decrease our subsidized children by 25% and yet at the same time increase our over all enrollment by 10% over a 6 month period. We continue to enroll our full pay private parents and I believe we will be near capacity and fully enrolled over the next 90 days. Thanks Kris and Devin for all your help and proven ideas that work.”

“Working with Kris and using her Enrollment Boot Camp strategies has been the single most important thing we’ve done to grow our enrollment. Quite simply we would not be where we are today without her expertise. As a husband-wife team of 5 large locations, we’ve gotten a huge return on investment from working with her. Save yourself lots of time, money and frustration and get the Enrollment Boot Camp – I promise you will not regret it.”

success stories from child care centers

We’ve Steadily Increased Our Rates While Staying Full, Thanks to Kris

“Kris Murray has given us the template for success at our schools. Though it did take us a while to see results, it has really paid off and we couldn’t have done it without her expert guidance. We are basically full, and are “hanging kids from the rafters”, so to speak, converting a gym in one of our buildings to a classroom, and possibly building a new building in the next year or so. We have our marketing and sales down to a fine science and our closing rate is over 70% tours to closings conversions. We have steadily been able to increase our rates, and though still a good value, we are in the upper end of our market in price and we believe increasing the price and value has helped, not hurt us. We have worked real hard to get to this point and have had many mentors, but none have given us the quality of advice and focused marketing that Kris has! A big thank you to Kris and her team!”

annette-gentry-2We Are Finally Enrolling New Children! Tripled Enrollment in 1 Location

Superb Training! In my 25 plus years in the business, I have only once had training of this caliber! Kris has taken marketing to the next level! I feel rejuvenated! We tripled our enrollment in one of our locations (from 30 to 90 children) in just a few months using the Enrollment Boot Camp techniques. I no longer feel like my marketing efforts are fruitless and a waste of money. All of my center management are more motivated than ever. We are Facebooking and emailing and videoing and most importantly of all ENROLLING new children! Hats off to Kris and her Enrollment Boot Camp!”
