November 2015 E-Blast


Holiday Newsletter - 2nd Edition


The Gift of New Skill Sets, Brain Power and Family Time Spent...rather than the latest Electronic Gizmo under the tree

This year, more so than ever before, The Kid's Directory is pushing the notion of the Holiday time being committed to the family's health and well-being rather than the accumulation of 'things'. So we are encouraging all of our advertisers and potential advertisers to frame their business's offerings along these lines. The gift of music, the enrichment offered by a summer camp, a new language, a long week-end on the beach, art classes, or a mom and daughter horse adventure in the Texas Hill country are the kinds of activities and gifts that we're talking about.

To that end, we have revised an old promotional piece called the Elf's Short List. It has now become a special advertising page in all of our publications and is displayed on the front page of our website for the months of November and December. A logo, a brief snippet description of what you are offering for the holidays along with your contact information will be artfully represented in the Holiday Gift and Activity Guide special section in all 92,500 publications that we do each and every month. The cost for all this is going to be just $45 and will include: full color, a hot link to your website, and the physical and digital distribution referenced above. This is only for December and because of the holidays, deadline for this wondrous little promotion will be November 12th. No lollygagging now!

And now for some Holiday Treatsok
Lots of fun activities are going to be available in November & December. These freebies are intended for our advertisers and those prospective advertiser's families and friends. And remember, they are given out on a first come first serve basis.
