Distribution is Everything!

To put it simply, our job at The Kid’s Directory is to locate and target your customers…so they know the who, what and where of your business. We call that process distribution, and we work harder at it than any other family oriented publication.

We hand deliver each Kid’s Directory ourselves to some 5,500 different points of distribution, leaving an average of 15-20 books at each location. We concentrate on quality distribution points — those places where moms and dads are found spending time, money and energy on their kids. In addition to our own delivery personnel, the distribution coordinator, the publisher, the sales and office manager, as well as the sales consultants participate in the distribution process. We all verify, add, and in some instances, delete locations in a constant effort to put our advertisers in front of their customers. After all, your customers are a moving target…our distribution system simply keeps up with them.

3 Separate Markets

We have divided Houston into three separate markets: North, Central and West. Why? Again, for the benefit of our advertisers, most of whom are small business owners and operators. After all, there is no reason for an advertiser in Sugar Land to pay for distribution in The Woodlands unless he or she specifically wants to market to that area. So we give the business owners a choice of markets, thereby making their advertising more cost effective.

Every advertiser also has a presence on our website (www.kids-houston.com) through the digital issue of each book. Readership of The Kid’s Directory can easily access and view the Central, North, or West Family Resource Guide on any device at any time. That’s an additional distribution system we’ve developed and continue to refine for the benefit of our advertisers.

“Advertising with The Kid’s Directory keeps our phone ringing.”

Phaedra Dinkins, Dinky Drum Company, LLC

We had many parents who reached out to us because of our ad in the KD who very likely might not have known about our program otherwise.”

Perri Segura, teachHouston

“Our first year of doing parties, we did around 25 parties without the KD, our first year of advertising with the KD, we started doing 150 to 300 a year.”
