Hi there – I’m Claire and the Mum behind Red Kite Days. Launched over 5 years ago, Red Kite Days has grown rapidly to become an indispensable resource for parents in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Gloucestershire and Cheshire. It’s the trusted place to go to find local ideas for what’s on, family day out reviews, classes, independent schools, tutors and nurseries. Content is rich, hyper-local, targeted and ranks on the first page of Google for many key search terms.
The Red Kite Days website is complemented by rapidly growing social media platforms including Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. With family days out mum bloggers in each focus region, it’s a great way to connect with local parents.
I also have a regular guest slot on BBC Radio Oxford several times a week on the Adam Ball show, sharing my top tips for family adventures and Cheshire editor Sarah has featured on BBC Radio Manchester.
With well over a decade of marketing and commercial experience working in major international FMCG companies, I combine big brand marketing expertise with the small personal touches to ensure partners receive the best possible return on investment. At the heart is my genuine drive to provide a useful and engaging resource to local parents so you get a trusted mum blogger with marketing savvy.
There are a range of advertising options to suit all budgets and I will always go the extra mile for partners. Prices start from £35 and all partners receive a personalised summary of activity so you receive the key stats you need to assess your return on investment.
If you’re a small business, this can all sound a bit scary but don’t worry, I don’t bite, I’m not pushy and if I have any tips on how you can reach your audience for free first then I’ll let you know.
