"A briljant musthave app for parents!"

Problem

Kids have an average of 200 days off per year (including weekends). Of course, for them this is great, but for the parents, this can be a logistic disaster to arrange or plan the lives of their offspring. Every parent knows the hundreds of WhatsApp groups, the endless organizational emails or the hours of googling the net in search of fun things to do with his or her child(ren). And this while Belgium and the Netherlands have already thousands of organizations that only focus on a fun time for children. The only problem here is that there still is no platform that aims to reach their target audience, which is, of course, the parents of those children!

Project

PARC (short for Parent Community app) is best described as a TripAdvisor for children. The app is designed to help parents find child-friendly hotspots in their neighbourhood, to share these with their network, to write and read reviews, and soon they will also have a say in the entire offer of events and special offers and discounts of our child-friendly hotspots!

Strategy

Marketing strategy

To make PARC more known to the bigger audience we will focus on marketing using the typical social media and starting September we will hand out brochures, which will include a clear explanation about how PARC works, at the various bigger and smaller school in both Belgium and the Netherlands. To finish we wish to engage in a win-win partnership with a big media player that can help us become bigger in our existence and later take part in the sales. Several meetings have already taken place and several parties are interested.

Internationalisation strategy

Our aims with PARC at this moment are the Belgian and the Dutch market. When we have designed a sustainable model and we have a perfect view of sales, marketing, …, we will (using our new gained knowledge) expand. To start with France and Germany (where we already have hundreds of users) are on the list. Afterwards, we can steadily expand to the rest of Europe.

Main partners

Important partners to us are the amazing child-friendly hotspots that have been using the platform free of charge so far. To be added to the platform is- and will always be- free of costs. However, starting soon the hotspots will be able to enrol for cheap yearly subscriptions that help them share their entire calendar with the parents in a very clear way. These subscriptions also allow them to give discounts and offers to our community of parents. As we speak there are more than 2000 child-friendly hotspots on our platform. Some of them are The Zoo of Antwerp, Planckendael, Plopsaland, Bobbejaanland, Zomer Van Antwerpen (Summer of Antwerp) and many more. But you can also find a lot of tiny, cool child-friendly businesses that aren’t really known among the bigger crowd.
