Advertising

Thank you for your interest in advertising with the San Mateo Parents Club. SMPC is now pleased to offer paid online advertising through our social media platforms Facebook and Instagram (see below) in addition to our blog and our monthly emailed classifieds.

  • "Social Media Online Advertising Blast" to include all of the following:
    • An "offer" post on San Mateo Parents Club Facebook public page with almost 1,000 likes set to expire two weeks from the requested publish date.
    • The "offer" post is shared on San Mateo Parents Club Facebook private group with almost 300 members.  This post will expire after two weeks.
    • A post on @sanmateoparentsclub Instagram with over 430 followers that will be removed two weeks from the requested publish date.
    • We are currently limiting online ads to a maximum of two vendors per bi-weekly period.  Therefore space is very limited and like all of our advertising, will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

  • The blog is available to our members and the public on our website with regular posts made throughout the month.
  • The email classifieds are short (100 word) text-only blurbs that are emailed to all members on the 15th of each month.

DEADLINES:

The deadline for the newsletter or email classified ads is the 6th of each month (e.g. Sept 6 for the Sept 15 email classifieds and the October newsletter). Ad space is filled on a first-come-first-served basis, and is not guaranteed until payment and content are received.
