BYKidO Update - September Week 3


Share with other Parents or Go Back

Dear Partners,

 

This is our 2nd update for September. We are now half way through the 4th month of BYKidO operations.

 

Thank you for believing in the idea of BYKidO and giving us the opportunity to Partner. We have had Partners who joined us since the 1st of June to Partners that join us in the recently on the 15th of September.

 

For new Partners – you may now view all Updates (starting 1st of September) from here.

 

Why am I writing the bi-weekly Updates?

 

I believe that BYKidO will not just be a listing sit but should work on a Partnership with each Partner. While the level of engagement for each Partner will be different and is dependent on Partner, I believe this approach will add more value to you, me and Parents who use BYKidO. So, the writing of Updates is to keep Partners updated on the success (or failure) of BYKidO and help to communicate our plans.

 

In all my initial meetings with Partners, I have stated my belief in a Triple Win. BYKidO will only succeed when we help our Partners to grow while providing our Parents a worthwhile reason to come to us.

 

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, Last Update, Today and our Target in December.

How will each of the matrix help you?

 

  1. Partners and Promotions – this is key for BYKidO to remain attractive for Parents. We will need to maintain a certain number of Partners and Promotion to continue to be attract Parents. This will also mean more eyeballs for all Partners.
  2. Mailing List and Facebook Likes – the more we have, the wider our reach to promote for you. Let me take this opportunity to remind you that we are glad to promote any events or in-house promotions that you run.
  3. Pass Holders – these are people who are able to redeem your vouchers. The more we have, the more likely they will redeem your promotions due to the “spill-over’ effect across BYKidO Partners.
