Place a Commercial Post on our List Serve

Commercial Posts are broadcast to the Park Slope Parents Email Group, which reaches over 9,000 Brooklyn parents each day. 

 

What is a Commercial Post?

A Commercial Post is an email message that is sent to the Park Slope Parents Advice List. The information that our member parents receive and give on this group includes referrals, recommendations, and tips on hot topics from dance classes to day care providers to therapists to contractors to summer camps to dentists to hairdressers to accountants... and so much more. 
Members ask for advice on incredibly wide-ranging topics like childcare, home renovation, health, insurance, financial stability, real estate, and emotional well-being.

Commercial Post messages are interspersed among these general messages. Although Commercial Posts are one-shot advertisements, their penetration to 9,000+ inboxes makes them ideal for announcing classes, camp openings, events, and anything else which requires instant visibility and a call to action for your offerings.
