Who are Supermums?

Supermum Surrey provides local exposure for Mums who run small businesses. It can be extremely challenging to maintain a profitable business and we are truly passionate about helping hard working mums grow their venture through free advertising on our popular social media sites, and our affordable advertising platform at www.supermum.org. 

Our aim

Due to the success of Supermum Surrey, we wish to extend our services into Oxfordshire and Sussex. 

If you are interested in running your own Supermum county, we of course would love to hear from you. Please email admin@supermum.org

Our Story

 

In 2013 while on maternity leave I began networking with mums in my local area. I soon noticed that a lot of them had started up a small business that allowed them to balance their home life with their new venture. A common problem emerged in that there were very few affordable places for them to advertise.

I decided I wanted to help my friends and so created a Facebook page and started networking with mums with small businesses all across Surrey. Within a month I had 1000 likes and now a year later i have over 5000 with amazing feedback from hundreds of Surrey mums informing me I have generated lots of new business for them!

Due to the success of Supermum Surrey on social media I decided to have a website designed. For £4.99 a month each Supermum has their own 1 page website and their own customer review system. 

The review system allows customers to easily find trusted small businesses in Surrey. 

The aim of Supermums is to provide some exposure for all the hard working mums. I am a passionate advocate of supporting the smaller independent businesses. 

In 2014 Supermums won "best new business" for Mums In Business and a bronze award for our website from Mumpreneur UK. We have also been featured in the local press.

We now wish to make Supermums available to more people across the UK, and help to grow mums small businesses across a wider area. We have 2 passionate representatives for both Oxfordshire and Sussex who are already working hard generating interest on Facebook and Twitter. In order to make this a reality we need to raise some extra funds to cover the updates for our website, and the creation of marketing material.

We will spend £2,600 updating our website to add support for Oxfordshire and Sussex as well as improving our whats on calendar and blog. 

We will spend £400 on designing starter packs for our new representatives and the printing of 5,000 flyers.

Supermums are dedicated to the promotion of small businesses and helping to grow our community. When you buy from a small, home-based business, you are not helping a CEO buy a third holiday home. You are helping a little girl to get dancing lessons, a little boy get his team football strip, a mum or dad to put food on the table, a family pay a mortgage or a student pay for university.

Thank you for supporting us and helping us support local business!
