the UK’s no.1

Established in 2011 in response to a lack of good quality, fun and professionally run classes for postnatal mums, babies and toddlers, busylizzy was born. Our unique concept, high service levels, innovative use of technology and great value proposition have captured the imagination of mums in what was otherwise a traditional sector.

The busylizzy® brand has also helped define a new category of family entertainment provision – ‘The Family Club‘. We currently operate five clubs in Surrey and are successfully franchising our business throughout the UK.

We are the UK’s leading family club and have won awards for our business, website and community involvement.

Busylizzy is an amazing business created by mums for mums.

our fab members

Families who join busylizzy are intelligent, discerning modern day adults (mainly ABC1) who tend to pay for quality and brand reassurance. The majority of our members are aged between 28-42 (median age 33). A high percentage of our members have a baby 2 years or below, and although many will be first-time parents, many have toddlers, and older children too.

We have an incredibly engaged audience with over 1700 active members – the majority are accessing our website and booking system via tablet and smartphone, so they are digitally savvy.

Our brand strength has a proven track record of influencing mums’ shopping habits in the local market. Over 90% of our members agree that busylizzy is a trusted source of advice and this trust lends itself to helping marketers resonate with our mums. Crucially, we meet our members face to face every single day, so if you want to connect your brand with ‘real‘ mums across multiple platforms – we’ve got you covered.

Forget uninspiring, boring business listings – we’re talking about something a whole lot more interesting and effective! Our promotional pages are professionally designed and provide the perfect responsive platform for targeted, engaging and creative content.

Not only that… when you become an approved partner with your local busylizzy club – your business will also be featured on our group site absolutely free!

We ask that all listings offer our members a ‘unique offer’ – it can be anything from a discount, free trial, exclusive offer, freebie, sample, BOGOF…. anything that serves as a little incentive to try your goods/services and rewards them for being a Busylizzy member.

We use your promotional page as the basis for our social media support and communication to our members… We’re not promising anything, but in the past when a business has offered our members something truly awesome or completely unique – we have put additional social media effort into getting the word out!

We promote our ‘member offers’ on our app with regular push notifications and in our weekly newsletters.

Approved Partner status means that busylizzy family club is happy to recommend the supplier in question to its members. Approved Partner status does not create a partnership between busylizzy family club and the supplier for the purposes of the Partnership Act 1890. Whilst busylizzy family club takes reasonable care in determining whether a supplier should be recommended to its members, busylizzy family club disclaims liability for any negligence or default on the part of any such supplier.

Are you a business looking for exposure? Would you like to take advantage of a banner ad on Busylizzy.co.uk or one of our local club sites?

Busylizzy.co.uk is the national website for Busylizzy. The site attracts over one hundred thousand unique visitors each year.

Our clubs sites (busylizzyreigate.co.uk etc) are much more localised and are predominantly viewed by young families in a 10 mile radius of the club. Our sites are very popular and have good engagement with site visitors as we regularly update our sites with the latest club news, parenting advice, local news and trends to keep things fresh.

Our sites rank highly on organic natural searches for baby, toddler and parenting key words and we invest heavily in advertising to keep our traffic figures high. We’ve also been shortlisted at the ‘2015 Surrey Digital Awards‘ for the best website and best responsive website categories, so by advertising with us you’re in good hands.
