Default Advertising

I'm starting to get really frustrated. I have open spaces that I just can't fill. I even have a coveted infant space open now and another one will open in 5 weeks.

I've been advertising on Craigslist, where I've received a lot of calls in the past. Now, nothing. The last 3 calls were for ladies looking for jobs in a daycare. Of course, I didn't have openings when I got the calls.

I've talked to two other providers that live near me, asking where they're advertising. I guess advertising is a trade secret that no one is willing to share. We each have something different to offer, so it's not like we are in direct competition. #1 caters to the Mandarin speaking community. #2 caters to school age. I cater to families who want their children to go on outings that #1 and #2 don't do.

I've tried our local paper, Penneysaver, yellow pages, restaurant menus, word of mouth, etc with absolutely no luck.

Anyone have any other ideas?
