Many Moms Money Club

Women make more than 80% of all household purchase decisions and control two-thirds of the nation’s disposable income. Women, especially moms trust the advice and recommendations of their fellow moms over traditional paid advertisements, with what we like to call the “girlfriend marketing factor”.

The power of the blogger is undeniable as Forbes Magazine recently described in an article, “Does Anyone Really Take The Mom Blogger Seriously?” (the answer was “yes”, by the way). Bloggers typically have a loyal following, especially within their niche area. They also have a strong social media influence and know how to use outlets like Twitter and Pinterest to reach the widest audience to promote content. So, how do you tap into this force and get bloggers to authentically write and Tweet about your business?

Businesses, Do You Have A Product or Service To Share?

The Many Moms Money Club connects businesses with bloggers for authentic Product Reviews, Blogger Events & Giveaways. Simply submit your product, event, service or business information here to see how the power of the “mom blogger” can help you.

Letter From The Editor

When we were in school, it was recess time that allowed us to connect, share and play with schoolmates.  In between classes we learned more about each other while listening to the latest gossip and talking about our favorite songs.

Now, as women working, raising a family and living in Southern Nevada, when do we get our recess?  When and where do we connect with other women in our community to share tips and information or get news as it pertains to our individual interests?

Traditional media doesn’t always give me what I need, which is why RECESS founding partners, Christa Schueler, Melly Allen, Lisa Drake and Kathy Meisler, along with myself created this platform.  Collectively we can make difficult issues easy, and as women we become empowered by sharing resources, tips and information to help ourselves and our families as well as the community we live in.

Through our Contributor program, we invite you to share your story and opinions with us.  Join the Sandbox Revolution and submit your content here.  At RECESS we’re creating a community of women who want a voice to share information.

And while there are times that we want to make a difference in our community, other times we just need some inspiration.  From finding recipes for easy and healthy family dinners to tips on throwing a memorable baby shower, there’s no better place to turn than the blogger.  RECESS is 100% blogger syndicated, meaning that it’s written by women just like you.

The power of the blogger is undeniable as Forbes Magazine recently described in an article, “Does Anyone Really Take The Mom Blogger Seriously?”.  The age of the blogger perplexes some, but the reality is that bloggers bring a loyal following by engaging their readers on a more personable and trustworthy read more

The Power of Women & Mobile Marketing

Did you know that 80% of all household purchase decisions are made by women and that we make up half of the population here in Southern Nevada?  Studies show that more and more women are looking online before making purchase decisions. RECESS is a gateway that connects businesses with women through the power of social media in addition to traditional advertisement.recess stats network

At RECESS, we have the only ads that Tweet! Whether you’re waiting in the doctor’s office or sitting at soccer practice, take a look around and notice where your customers are. They’re online using mobile devices, so the question is, where are you?
