BYKidO Update - Mid Jan 2017

Share with other Parents or Go Back

Dear Partners,


Please see below the BYKidO Update for Mid January 2017.  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 Partners familiar, you will note that I added total Redemptions for the month. For each matrix, I have provided details on where we started in January, our last update, as of today and the Target for end June 2017




Last Update (Dec 2016)

Mailing List

BYKidO Pass Holders (Jan – Jun 2017)





Total Redemptions (for the month)






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.
  4. Total Redemptions – This measures how many redemptions have been made for the month and will give us a gauge of success.

    • Will you like to take part in an EDM Marketing Campaign at a lower cost?
    • Normal EDM campaigns charge between $1,000 - $5,000 and might be out of reach for many small businesses.
    • To help you as well as BYKidO reach out to a wider audience, I like to include you in our marketing campaigns with paid advertisers for a small fee.
      1. Our first campaign is an EDM campaign with the British Club – with an email reach of over 2,500 mostly expat families.
      2. For a fee starting from just $100, we will be glad to include your Logo and Promotion in the attached EDM.
    • What do you get?
      1. You get to reach the intended audience at a much lower fee
      2. Our audiences are aligned, thus you will reach an audience that will make sense to your brand
  • You do not need to get involved in creating the EDM or to handle the advertiser
  1. Direct ROI through redemption of the Promotion as well as brand marketing to a selected audience
