Allow your business to be seen

Mums and mums to be in Kent are crying out for resources to support them, especially during these difficult times, and together we will highlight what’s on offer.

The Kent Pregnancy guide and My 1st Year Kent Adventure Guide are downloadable pdf’s for parents to be able to explore what’s on offer here in Kent and Medway and also the neighbouring counties.

I understand that not all businesses have the same marketing budget, therefore I’ve created various packages so you don’t need to miss out on this opportunity and can still invest in your business.

Pregnancy is a massive change in a women’s life and there’s so much to prepare for. When your little one arrives, you enter a new world previously alien to you…we all need a little support.

The guides are parent’s opportunity to find the best businesses available to support them.

They highlight anything from antenatal classes, hair dressers to heating engineers, pottery classes and everything in between!

Support is essential when you have a little one, now more than ever.

Make sure your business is found by the parents who need you.

“Right from day one I loved the support that Laura gives Mums in Kent. She has also supported me and my business and is always coming up with new ways to connect the mums of Kent with services and businesses that will benefit them and their families. The blogs and articles have been fab; diverse, interesting and show casing some amazing local women. Thank you Laura for all that you do”

The guides are accessible here on the On the Doorstep website or as a downloadable PDF enabling the parents to explore what’s on offer. They can also sign up to receive weekly emails taking them through their journey and will receive high value support from local businesses.

You have the opportunity to advertise your business on the weekly emails sent by On the Doorstep as well as feature on my social platforms.
The idea is to drive the audience directly to you for brand awareness and ultimately to achieve sales. To become more appealing, consider offering an exclusive offer for the Guide and make sure you stand out!

Bronze Partner – £30

I know what it’s like starting your business, knowing that you need to advertise, but not having the money to invest. Most advertising opportunities seem so out of your price range, which is why I created this very accessible package for start-ups or businesses with lower marketing budgets.

You should still be noticed regardless of the stage of your business and this is how.

This package is perfect for you if you are:

  • A start-up or small company and want to be taken seriously within your sector
