Provider Membership Benefits

Provider Membership Benefits

Overview:

For the past two years, we have worked hard to build a large audience for our providers to connect to. One of our mission statements has always been to connect families to the wonderful providers that we have in our region.  We have offered many services to our providers completely free of charge, including sharing their events, allowing advertisements in our group, listings on our Resource List, and directing our over 3,000 families to that list.

We have been so happy to support our providers in this way, and we appreciate their support in return! Creating the space and audience that we offer you access to, does however cost us time and money.  These costs include maintaining our website, the time involved in monitoring the group, the marketing ads and printed materials, and the administrative and overhead costs for expanding our audience. This cost is high, but we believe it is worth it to continue connecting families to our valued providers. We want to keep expanding at this rate (we expect to double our numbers this year!), and offering a large audience for you to reach.

In order to do that, we are launching our Provider Membership Program. There will be the opportunity for providers to subscribe to a Benefits Program where we offer additional promotions for you, such as being on our Preferred Provider list, which will take precedence on our website. (We will keep the free resource list, but the first thing seen on the page will be the list of Preferred Providers.) Other benefits include blog posts, specific emails to our entire email list, and the ability to continue posting ads in our groups. The benefits are detailed below, and the Application Form is listed as well. We look forward to serving our providers on many more levels through this program and as we grow!
