Newsletter Advertising - NCT Croydon Newsletter BABYTalk

We produce a quarlterly newsletter called BABYtalk, it is written and edited by NCT Croydon volunteers with local members and parents in mind.  The A5 booklet has a mix of over 40 B&W and colour pages and it is produced using a sophisticated desktop package to give it a clean and professional finish.

We currently distribute the newsletter to around 400 NCT member households along with additional copies going to advertisers and local health professionals.  The latest Newsletter is available online at all times on our website if you want to see an example of the content.

Our members feedback that they find BABYtalk an invaluable source of local information, branch events, hints and tips on parenting and the best places to go or businesses to use in the borough.  The newsletters will often be kept as a reference point throughout the quarter rather than being read and thrown away and so offer great value for money for advertisers.

A cost effective way of reaching your target audience!

Our advertisers have found that BABYtalk is one of the most cost effective and direct ways of reaching a clearly defined target audience who have a strong interest in pregnancy, baby and child issues.

Our advertising rates are competitively priced, ensuring that you get the best value for your money. With options from £40-£270 per issue there is a package to suit all businesses and budgets.  Discounts are available if you commit to advertising for a full year (4 issues).  We have recently introduced the opportunity to sponsor the postage - meaning your logo would be on every envelope that doormats Croydon homes! If you would rather, you can also pay for A5 loose leaflets to be included in the envelope with the newsletter.

We ensure that you get a free copy of the newsletter every time your advert appears, if you request it.

Leaflet Advertising - Nearly New Sales & Fundraising Events

We are happy to offer businesses the opportunity to place leaflets in goodie bags for branch events such as our popular Nearly New Sales and events such as our Bi-Annual Baby Show.  Our Nearly New Sales are held once a quarter averaging over 100 people through the door at each sale.  We do not limit the amount of times you can advertise in this way and we charge £20 for 100 leaflets.  We are also happy to include brochures or product samples, please speak to us to discuss pricing.

To advertise at our Nearly New Sales please contact Carly on nns.croydon@nct.org.uk.

Event Sponsorship - Baby Shows, Mother & Baby Groups and Fundraising Events

We organise a number of events throughout the year such as our Cheeky Monkey Tea Party, Big Push Fundraising Walk and weekly Bumps & Babies Groups.  If you would like to sponsor these events for the opportunity to have a greater level of advertising with us please contact our Coordinator Sian on coordinator.croydon@nct.org.uk to discuss your needs and to agree on individual rates.

Exhibitor Programme - Bumps & Babies Groups

We regularly invite exhibitors to our local Bumps & Babies groups to speak to local expectant and new parents about the services they offer.  From taster sessions for local baby classes, talks from local antenatal fitness classes to children's photographers... whatever you have to offer we would be happy to consider having you there!  In return for the chance to talk to the group and leave leaflets for future display all we ask is for a contribution of £10.  The groups are a vital service for members and non-members alike so we don't have exhibitors every week, the primary aim is to give parents an informal environment to make friends and to make new friends but taster sessions offer parents a great chance to find local classes that their babies will enjoy.  If you are interested please email Group Organisers on events.croydon@nct.org.uk

Website Advertising

Within this website we have a local directory of businesses that may be useful for our members and local parents visiting the page.  If you would like to be included in the directory, for a small fee, we will be happy to post your logo, business name, contact details and a brief description of what your business can offer.  Please contact Alison at advertising.croydon@nct.org.uk for more information.
