The world has changed considerably since the COVID-19 pandemic, and businesses have had to adapt their services and products to be relevant and useful to the new marketplace.
We’ve loved hearing about all the new initiatives that local businesses are now offering – restaurants that are now offering take-away or home delivery, kids classes that are offering online classes, party entertainers who are now offering virtual parties and companies that are creating new products (like hand sanitisers or face masks) to meet the unprecedented demand.
With a restricted marketing budget, you’re probably looking for cost-effective advertising that can help you reach local mums. Luckily, we have lots of options!
The Directory gives businesses their very own page on the North Shore Mums website and is a great place to be found by mums actively looking for particular services and products.
We are currently offering a FREE one-month trial on any of the monthly auto-renewal plans in our Directory. So there’s zero risk! You can try the listing for 30 days, and cancel at any time if you don’t find it generates new leads.
Banner advertising gives brands strong exposure across the whole website and are great options for raising awareness. With the huge traffic, you’ll be getting even bigger exposure for your advertising dollar! Mention this page, and we are happy to offer 20% discount on any campaigns starting before 30 April 2020.
Got a special offer and want immediate sales? A promotion is a great option! You get your own dedicated page in the Offers section of the website for 2 weeks, and the promotion is supported by an ad in the weekly newsletter, two Facebook page posts and one 24-hour pinned post in our Facebook group.
E-newsletter & Social Media Packages
We also offer several packages where you get a spot on the weekly e-newsletter (sent Thursday nights to 10,000+ subscribers) and post on the Facebook page and group. Packages start from just $219 (inc. GST).
Extra value for advertisers!
All website advertisers are also welcome to post a free ad about their business during the Business Hour in our Facebook group (with 33,000 members). This is held twice a month, on the first and third Tuesday from 8-9pm. The details about Business Hour are here.
Facebook group posts
Advertisers are also welcome to suggest their business on any relevant posts asking for a service. However, you need to be upfront that it is your business – for example, “We run XX business, and would love to help you out… “. Feel free to add link to your link in the Directory too.
