Once you have earned KalliKids accreditation, there are lots of simple ways you can make the most of your trusted and approved, family friendly status.
Tell parents that you are referenced and checked: use the tick of approval on your website, your leaflets, business cards and even booking forms. Here is how to use the tick.
Use the window sticker(s) in your Welcome Pack on your cafe, school or venue door and display it in your car for all to see.
Use the little stickers in your Welcome Pack on your leaflets, business cards, booking forms and other materials. You can always ask for more.
Simply login to your profile and type in the email address of a parent ...they will receive an invite to recommend you with the link to your profile. It is easy: here is how to request a recommendation.
Give out the free-post cards in your Welcome Pack to parents. They are free for you and parents and a great way to build up your recommendations on your profile. You can always ask for more.
Send interesting news or promotions to the KalliKids Team for inclusion in newsletters to parents.
Write a 200-300 word article on a subject related to your service or even related to your hobby. This can be promoted on the KalliKids blog with a link back to your profile.
Be promoted as an Expert in your field, whether music, sport or family service: write or sponsor an Expert Pin Board with your name and logo linked to your profile.
Help parents understand how children learn and be promoted as a bonus: write or sponsor a learning article with your name and logo linked to your profile.
Add your profile address (URL) to your marketing materials so parents can see your recommendations and your qualifications. Your URL is: KalliKids.com/your-page-name
At any time of the year you can add new locations, qualifications, new team members or update your details on first aid. That way parents always see up to date information. It is very easy to edit your profile.
KalliKids can retweet your Tweets and share your Facebook posts whether you are running a new beginners class, a school holiday club or running a discount offer. Not yet on Twitter? See the start up guide for KalliKids accredited family activities and services.
From time to time, re-reading your profile will help you perfect your marketing message for parents by highlighting your skills, what makes you special and even your "key words".
Meet parents, inspire children to try out your skill, dance, sport or activity or even taste your birthday cakes and try a magic trick at a Meet-Me Day.
Get your branded pens, badges, hats or other items, or even your leaflets, included in goodie bags given out by KalliKids at Meet-Me Days and events.Email the KalliKids Team.
Recommend another quality activity provider and if they earn accreditation too, you will receive £15 Love2Shop vouchers.
Encourage your team to get involved in writing their short bios for the Meet-the-Team tab on your profile. You can make them fun or professional to best reflect who you all are.
As KalliKids is a new service, you may well have some great suggestions about improving the service. Please tell the Team!
