Upcoming Special Promotion

Ongoing Special Pricing Programs

In the spring of 2009, The Kid's Directory implemented "Our Own Little Economic Stimulus Program". It's really a very simple offering but it has been very helpful to a lot of folks over these past two years. And so long as our economy continues to stumble, we will continue to stay the course.

Color upgrade:
We will upgrade the color in your ad at no additional charge. This can
represent a savings of somewhere in the range of $55 to $360 per month.

Reduced Hot Link:
Our direct link from our website to yours through our on-line viewable
publications is now $10 a month (It was $20). Our traffic hovers around 30,000 hits a for that degree of additional exposure, $10 a month sounds pretty good!

Free participation in our KD Buck Program:
The Kid's Directory has had a coupon page on its website for couple of years now. It too is a simple thing but it gives our advertisers the ability to develop different offers and change them up on a weekly basis. It does demand your attentiveness, however, to be an effective tool.

The Holiday Gift and Activity Guide

We run this special section in the months of November and December...the holiday season. For our retail advertisers, it's an opportunity to generate more business during their most important time of year. For businesses offering holiday camps and various activities, this section offers a tremendous opportunity to get in front of Houston families eager to keep their kids occupied and happy during the holidays. Vacation specialist should also take advantage of this special section. Schools, who look to capture more students after the first of the year should also give the Holiday Gift and Activity Guide a nod. And though it seems really early for resident camp programs...this is time of year that you need to begin marketing to the hundreds of thousands Houston families with camper age kids. And the list goes on. Call us and we can help formulate your own plan for new business to close out 2011 or begin 2012.
