Having a baby is one of life’s happiest experiences, but it can also be one of the most expensive. According to the Care.com 2015 Cost of Care Survey, 28 percent of parents actually spend more than $20,000 per year on child care. Despite the high costs, the survey found that parents are willing to pay even more money for additional skills and services from their baby sitters, nannies and day care centers. Conducted in May 2015, Care.com, the world’s largest online destination for finding and managing family care, surveyed approximately 700 parents to measure awareness of child care costs, its impact on their careers and relationships, and the lengths people will go to for quality child care.

 

“Parents are prepared to jump through hoops when it comes to providing the best care for their child – asking friends and family for money, making major budget cuts and even going into debt,” said Donna Levin, co-founder of Care.com. “Our survey found that regardless of the high costs, parents are also willing to pay even more than they already do for quality child care, such as day cares that offer baby sign language and are equipped with video cameras, and multilingual nannies who are CPR-certified.”

Becoming known as an expert in your field remains as important as ever for promoting a product or service, but many businesses and professionals want to make sure they achieve their public relations goals without busting the publicity budget.

 

That outcome-oriented approach is helping fuel a growing trend of pay-for-performance public relations firms that bill only for services successfully rendered, unlike the traditional model in which agencies charge a monthly retainer or hourly fees.

 

For any business or individual looking for a PR firm, pay-for-performance has advantages because there is accountability.
