Today I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa Crowley, the owner of ParentSource.ca.When she contacted me I knew exactly what her business did as I had been entering contests on her site for as long as I have lived in Durham Region.
At coffee I discovered Lisa bought the site in 2011 and has slowly been expanding the site’s reach. First the throughout the GTA and then to Niagara Region. Her goal is offer all families in Southern Ontario the same valuable information and offers that the site has become known for. (I am trying to talk her into eventually expanding to all of Canada!)
If you aren’t familiar with ParentSource.ca, they have a wide range of offering all targeted towards parents and families. There is everything from: a directory to local businesses, to articles, an event guide, coupons, a free newsletter and my favourite, contests!
The big news from our meeting today was we decided to hold monthly Twitter chats!
Joining us will be easy. No RSVP is required. All you have to do is follow both myself (@ContestQueen) and Lisa (@ParentSource) using the hashtag #ParentSource as we chat about family fun on Monday February 8th at 8:00pm ET.
The specific prizes will be announced this coming Monday (as we are both moms and tomorrow is a PA Day). I will update this blog post and reshare. Anyone can join the chat, but as the prizes are donated by Lisa’s site sponsors, they will be geared to those living in the Greater Toronto Area.
Will you be joining us on February 8th?
P.S. As Lisa is expanding the site, if you know a business that could benefit from working with her, please connect with her.
