BYKidO Update: Mid December



Share with other Parents or Go Back

Dear Partners,

 

Please see below the BYKidO Update for Beginning December 2016.  For new Partners – you may now view all Updates (starting 1st of September) from here.

 

Why am I writing the bi-weekly Updates?

 

To create a Partnership with each Partner, I believe in providing an update of what we are doing and our plans. Perhaps it will spark ideas for further collaboration or encourage you to give us additional support in some areas. I believe that there is always potential for more.

 

My idea for BYKidO is to create stronger relationship with each Partner and not be just another listing site. While there are many factor affecting our level of engagement, providing updates on BYKidO, in my opinion, is a step in building this Partnership.

 

I like to reiterate my Triple Win belief that for BYKidO to succeed, BYKidO has to help our Partners to meet their business objectives while giving our Parents good promotions and deals! I hope our Partnership will help us achieve this.

 

Key Matrix – Past, Present and Future

 

Below is a table, listing a number of matrix that I look at. For each matrix, I have provided details on where we started in June, our last update, as of today and the Target for December.

Significance of the above

 

  1. Partners and Promotions – We wish to grow our Partners and Promotions to remain attractive to Parents. When we are attractive to Parents, we will be able to attract more eyeballs to all our Partners.
  2. Mailing List and Facebook Likes – This represents our reach to Parents. A larger number allows us to reach more Parents.
  3. Pass Holders – These are people who are able to redeem the Promotions. The greater the number, the higher the potential of redemption for your promotion.
