While the site was first started in November 2009, the traffic to it has rapidly been increasing, as has the number of people that follow the site either through RSS feed, e-mail, Twitter, or Facebook. In our first year we had over 33,000 page views. And now, having passed the 7th anniversary, the site is getting well over 60,000 page views per month (closer to 80,000 per month)! That is thousands of chances per month to get your information in front of local parents. And with our active site, you don't need to have information in one or two months ahead of time. According to Google Analytics, the site gets over 19,000 unique visitors per month.
In addition to the blog traffic, the VCM Facebook page has become an integrated community of moms. People use the page to find info, resources, have discussions, get feedback, and more. The monthly Facebook reach ranges from 50,000-100,000 people. There are over 18,000 people who follow the Facebook page, and there is a high percentage of people who are engaged. Check out this weekly insight report from Facebook, showing the number of people on the Facebook page where engaged and the number of people reached (for the week of July 3, 2015... the page had over 21,000 people engaged and reached over 138,000 people! That's for one week! There were more people engaged than "like" the page. Nearly 70,000 times people clicked on the links of things that were posted on the page.
Volusia County Moms has become the place where moms go to know... about everything!

Why Online Advertising
Unlike magazines, we can get information out to our readers immediately. Advertising on this site has a big advantage over print advertising (e.g., magazines), in that consumers can access it 24/7 and the information is current. This site offers an ongoing and updated events calendar that keeps people coming back, looking for family friendly events in throughout the Daytona Beach area. People who read magazines tend to look through it once and toss it, whereas this site remains a trusted place that they can come back to at any time during the month. No waiting for the next issue to come out.
If you would like to advertise or discuss it with us, please feel free to drop us an e-mail. We look forward to hearing from you and look forward to helping you reach the moms in Volusia County.
