The Dowell School is a transformational, cost effective, and quality childhood development center that offers convenient, flexible, and unique nonstandard hours. The service is tailored around the well-being and development of the children while catering to working parents varied schedules. Distribution or placement is an important part of school’s marketing strategy to successfully deliver their services to their end-users. Important steps to consider when designing distribution strategy includes customer’s evaluation of buying behavior, identifying natural partners, and treating channels with a sales process approach, etc. (Qlutch Marketing, 2019).
Distribution channels are marketing channels that serves as paths for goods and services to move through from the producer to the customers (Ogunrin & Inegbenebor, 2015). This can either be direct or indirect involving intermediaries. The Dowell School’s primary distribution channel is direct. The childcare center will sell directly to their customer by placing the center in a highly visible location saturated with its target demographic.
Secondary distribution channels would include web services and promotions through natural partners, campaigns, and social media. Web services such as Salesforce would be efficient in matching to fit customer needs using proven methods. Promotions through social media is highly targeted, interactive, and unlimited. Natural partners such as neighborhood schools and children’s healthcare organizations will be utilized to grow community presence and build reputation.
