Want to promote your event, special offer or new launch to thousands of local mums? We have a range of E-newsletter and Facebook Packages to suit all budgets, which are a great way to create awareness and generate sales.

Advertising Packages

We offer several advertising packages that can include an ad in the Bulletin Board of a weekly e-newsletter, a post on the North Shore Mums Facebook page, pinned post in the Announcements section of the Facebook group and featured status for event listings.

To ensure visibility with our readers, we will ‘boost’ the Facebook post to our fanbase, specifically targeted to the business or event – to guarantee it is seen by the right demographic for your business.

Tips for an ad that gets results!

  • If you are promoting a product or service, it’s a great idea to attach some kind of special offer (e.g. free trial, discount, free delivery, value add) – to encourage clicks and response.
  • If you are seeking respondents for a survey, it’s a great idea to have a prize as an incentive for people to respond.

Image Guidelines

The image you supply must be a single landscape, photographic image – something that illustrates what you are promoting and will sell it in the best way possible! The power of a great image cannot be underestimated! It cannot be a collage, flyer, logo or an image with words over it. The reasons for this are:

  1. E-newsletter Bulletin Board – The template allows for one 600 (w) x 400 (h) pixel image, so single photographic image looks best (and any text would be illegible). Don’t worry, we will resize it for you!
  2. Facebook – If you have a lot of fantastic images that showcase your product or service, submit them all! We can create a photo gallery with up to 5 images. If you don’t have lots of images, one image is fine

Please provide high quality images – we will resize and optimise.

Images for Facebook:

Facebook says: “Our policies previously prohibited adverts with text that covered more than 20% of an advert’s image. We’ve recently implemented a new solution that allows adverts with a text amount of greater than 20% to run, but with reduced delivery or no delivery.” So for the best reach and response, images with little or no text still perform best.

Prefer to use a video for your Facebook post?

If you would prefer to use a video for your Facebook post, please supply a link to download the file in the ‘comments’ section. Video performs better when natively uploaded to our Facebook page.

Weekly Deadline: 12pm Tuesdays

To be included in the next available newsletter, your ad must be submitted by 12pm Tuesday.

Based on the information you provide in the online form, we will draft your ads and email them to you for your approval the week of publication. You can nominate what Thursday night you would like to your newsletter spot to appear, and your ideal date to post on the Facebook page (and we will do our best to accommodate – book early to get your desired dates).

You will also receive an email confirming that your ad has been received. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
