Why choose Mumsrate?


Through running large facebook groups for 10 years now, it is very clear that members will not use a business unless it has been ‘rated’ by another member. Your customers turn to social media groups daily to find recommendations. This can be great if the businesses are a genuine business but dangerous if it is not!

The Mumsrate directory has been created to promote businesses that have been recommended by our members, we check the businesses reviews on google and social media to confirm they are giving a 5-star service and then list the business on our directory. When a member then asks for a service we have on our directory we share the link to the listing for them to view and contact if they wish. This is both great for our clients and our customers as we all want to use a business that others have rated as great!

We already work with 180 local businesses in Milton Keynes, Bedford, Northampton and Dunstable to provide them with affordable packages and PR options to help their business grow. Plus our Facebook groups have over 20,000 members and grow by 300 new members per month!

Our ethos: Give our members access to all the services they ask for daily i.e Plumber, Builder, Baby Group, Afternoon Tea etc… And give our clients the best advertising packages in town so they can make more profit!
