Being a birthing professional isn’t easy. It’s difficult to make enough money to cover your expenses let alone a profit. You don’t have lots of money to spend on advertising and promotion. You have to be picky about where you spend your money to promote your business or you may be out of business before you even get started. So why should you spend your hard earned money listing on TheOnlyBabyStop?
At TheOnlyBabyStop you get more than just your name on an alphabetized list with your location and contact information. Here you get your own webpage that you can personalize with a picture and a bio. This helps you stand out from the crowd and may help you get more clients than sites that just list your name. Because this site's listings are personal, expectant parents are more likely to come here first to find a birthing professional than other listing sites.
TheOnlyBabyStop is designed to be the only place expectant couples need to come to for information about their pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and postpartum and find a birthing professional like a doula or childbirth educator. They don’t need to jump from website to website since everything they need is in one place.
Since TheOnlyBabyStop is an information site (among other things) expectant couples may come to TheOnlyBabyStop looking for basic information. Perhaps they entered a question into a search engine and discovered TheOnlyBabyStop (we’re high in the search engines because we have good search engine optimization and high visibility). While getting the information they were looking for they may also find out about birthing professionals and then discover TheOnlyBabyStop lists birthing professionals. They don’t have to go to multiple sites to find you. They find your listing and bingo--you have a new client; a client who didn’t originally start off looking for a birthing professional, but found one because all the information they needed was in one place.
In addition, because TheOnlyBabyStop is an information site rather than just a listing site, there’s a higher volume of visitors than other sites. Though the site is only a few months old, we average over a 100 unique visitors a day. The more visitors there are, the higher the chances of you’ll get hired.
In addition, expectant parents are likely to keep coming back to the site as the site is updated constantly with new information, and new birthing professionals. Monthly newsletters with your name in them (depending on the plan you purchase) and your name on the home page also give you more visibility on the site. The more an expectant couple comes back, the higher the chances of them finding your listing.
Additionally, TheOnlyBabyStop listings start at $15.00 for an entire year, making them truly are affordable. Different plans allow you to pick and choose what you want. You’re not paying for features you really don’t want; you have the power to choose the amount of exposure you want on the site with banner ad options, newsletter and home page listing options. Since logo design, business cards, website design and brochures are out of the realm of expertise of many birthing professionals, TheOnlyBabyStop can also design these products for you for a small fee.
TheOnlyBabyStop is owned and maintained by a childbirth educator and doula. We understand the difficulty of running a birth – based business and want you to succeed; that’s why the website isn’t just for expectant parents, but also birthing professionals. Depending on the listing you purchase, you may get an evaluation of your website and other business advice from our web designer. Listing on the site also signs you up for notifications about sales on popular business or birth sites such Childbirth Graphics, GoDaddy and Vistaprint. You’ll also have a say in the articles you want to see and the information put on the site for birthing professionals.
