Professional Photography For Your Academy

The Marketing Team is proud to announce a new program provided by the Brand Building Fund that delivers professional architectural photography services to all open Academies!

When prospective customers begin their child care search, they are looking for validation that Kiddie Academy is a safe, clean, high-quality facility, and your photo assets are an important part of their research. Customers often start their child care research online – visiting your website and social channels, as well as directory listings like Google My Business and Yelp. Yet many Academies use cell phone pictures of their Academies online or, even worse, no pictures at all. This leaves customers with inadequate information about your business during their initial research.

That’s why we’ve partnered with CS3, a photography agency with a nationwide footprint, to take professional photos of your Academies – both outside and inside – for use in your marketing efforts. And best of all, the initial photoshoot of your Academy will be free to you – compliments of the Brand Building Fund.

Multiple studies have shown an increase in conversions when websites add more localized content. This is further proven by Google, which reports, “Businesses that add photos to their Business Profiles receive 42% more requests for directions on Google Maps, and 35% more clicks through to their websites than businesses that don’t.”
