Listing options explainedListing description

This is where you can put your best foot forward and write about what makes your business great for the mums in our community. This is included in both the standard and premium listing options.

Web and social links

Both the standard and premium listings include links out to your website and social media.

Categories

A standard listing allows you to list in one category on our website.

With a premium listing, you can choose up to 3 categories for your listing to be included in and searched under. Eg. Mum resources, childcare, professional services. (It is possible to add new categories if you don’t think there is currently a suitable category option.) This option will ensure more mums see what you have to offer.

Photos

With a standard listing, you can include 3 photos. For a premium listing, you can include up to 8 giving people more of a chance to learn all about your brand.

Video

Premium listings only allow you to include a video with your listing.

Locations

With a standard listing, you can add one business address.

With a premium listing, you can add up to 3 business addresses/locations. E.g. a physio that has a clinic in Cronulla and another in Engadine can add both addresses. Or a personal trainer who does sessions in Cronulla, Miranda and Sutherland can publish all three locations.

Contact Us form

At the bottom of your listing is a Contact form to allow mums of our community to reach out to you directly.

Reviews

This is a great way to set yourself apart from other companies. By encouraging your customers to leave a review it will help to give other mums confidence in what you have to offer.

Weekly post in Facebook group

You are entitled to post an ad each week during business hour in our closed Facebook group of almost 3k local mums. You must post during business hour only (Thursday 8-9pm) and you must be a member of the group to post. If you are not a local mum and we are unable to add you to the group you can either:

nominate a college/friend/family member who can post in the group on your behalf OR

we can publish the post for you each week (subject to T&Cs).

You can access the Mums of the Shire Facebook Group here.
