Do you have a product or service that makes an ideal Christmas gift for someone special? Whether it’s for a toddler or tween… or a mum, teacher or grandparent, promoting it to North Shore Mums in the lead up to Christmas is a great way to generate sales!
With Christmas just around the corner, mums are looking for ideas about what to get their children, nieces & nephews, husbands, teachers and their own parents. And we need all the help and guidance we can get!
Throughout November and December, North Shore Mums has released a special promotions package for gifts that make an ideal Christmas present. Our mums are actively seeking special gifts to buy for the special people in their lives, so we want to make it easy by providing some great ideas, with an exclusive offer to match!
Why run a special offer?
Increased Brand awareness
It gives your business strong exposure across the North Shore Mums platform, when our readers are actively looking for gift ideas and ready to purchase. It also helps get your brand on the radar for future purchases!
A special offer provides an incentive to ‘get in quick’ to get the discount.
“I ran a promotion with North Shore Mums for Cubs & Co. personalised caps for Father’s Day, and was delighted with the results. I had direct sales from the campaign and an increase in social engagement as a result. As a small start-up company, every cent counts. I was so happy with the results I saw from the campaign, that I’m doing another campaign with North Shore Mums for Christmas.” – Mandi Binder, Cubs & Co.
