Mum to Mum started as a private Facebook group in Milton Keynes back in in 2008 after the founder had her first child and wanted a place to message all of her new ‘mum’ friends.
Slowly the community grew and businesses were looking to advertise to this wonderfully engaged group. Now standing at over 15,100 members and gaining over 500 new members each month, it is recommended all over Milton Keynes as the ‘go to’ community.
“The google of Milton Keynes!”
The full social media community that has grown from this group now stands at over 40,000 followers with Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
In 2014 it changed to a non-profit small business, as 100% was donated to charity until we reached £5,000 and then in 2017 it grew into a small business with a new website @ www.mumtomumuk.com a one-stop local life directory which offers advertising packages, PR, brand awareness and networking opportunities.
This website is shared daily across all of our social media channels, with a reach of over 200,000 and promoted within our community daily to help our members when they need support and recommendations.
With Advertising packages from £10 per month and great PR from £100 per month – We are over 50% cheaper and 100% better than other Business Directories.
Things have changed a great deal for Mum to Mum, and there are now several different ways of working with us. I wanted to explain a bit about what’s available, so that you can decide what’s going to be best for you and your business going forward. I’ve begun collaborations with some of the biggest names in Milton Keynes – such as Centre:mk, Top Jump, and Frosts Garden Centre – and Mum to Mum is now recognised as a trusted brand, and a top choice for local advertising. Our new advertising pricing structure reflects our reach and the quality of the promotion we can offer you.
