Got a special offer for North Shore Mums? Promotions run in the Offers tab, and are an excellent way of getting strong exposure for your business across the platform (website, newsletter and social media). They generate excitement, and importantly translate into new business enquiries. Promotions run for 2 weeks and receive the following exposure:
- Website: A promotional page in the Offers section of the website, including a large ‘feature image’ at the top of the page, description of your business and the offer, and a gallery of up to eight images (800 x 800 pixels). In addition, it will get prominent exposure on the NSM homepage, in the Offers box.
- Facebook: The offer will receive two posts on the North Shore Mums Facebook page, and one post to the Facebook group.
- E-newsletter: The offer will receive one spot in the weekly newsletter.
Competitions are another great way of creating excitement and engagement for a product or brand. They run on the North Shore Mums website for one week (a shorter time frame works much better to motivate entries) and are promoted on the weekly newsletter and via two Facebook page posts.
We also run special advertorial campaigns throughout the year – such at the Essential Guide to Kids’ Classes and Essential Guide to School Holidays. Click here for more details about upcoming advertorials:
