Word of mouth has always been one of the ways parents get recommendations on things to do with kids. Upparent.com makes finding these recommendations easier than ever before.
Intended as a way for users to browse parenting-related content and recommendations, Upparent.com is quickly becoming a go-to resource for parents who want to spend less time researching and more time enjoying activities with their kids.
In this episode I interview Upparent co-founder Alexandra Fung as we discuss:
- Which markets Upparent currently provides market-specific content for
- What types of information parents can find on Upparent, including topics that range from the best sippy cups for kids to races the entire family can run
- How content on the site is generated, curated and monitored for quality control
- Why the topic of volunteering as a family is popular on the site and with its founders
I close out this final 2018 episode with a brief discussion about the Cool Stuff page, where I include my choices for favorite and recommended products, including a recommendation of my favorite natural deodorant by LaVanila (<- affiliate link). I also share a follow up on LaVanila’s underarm detox mask as shared with me by their team, in case listeners are looking for a way to transition from traditional deodorant to a natural one.
Thanks to every listener who has helped to make 2018 an amazing year for me and this podcast! I look forward to bringing you all new episodes in January of 2019. ~Regan
