We help businesses build
connection & trust with local families

Do you want more families to know about your business?

We hear from businesses daily about how they would love more families to know about their business.

How if they could just get their brand and business in front of more family’s that they would make more revenue and their business could grow.

That they wish they could build trust and a relationship with parents so that they can be advocates for their business  now and into the future.

Smart businesses know that the family market is lucrative and audience that they should invest time and money in to.

This takes time, strategy and a multifaceted approach.

We’d love to help you.

Expert Advice

Why should your business invest in attracting families? 

The buying power of parents is a multi-billion dollar industry.

This niche market is in their highest spending years. They are buying family homes, cars, clothing, household goods, holidays, leisure activities and more. They are also investing in health, daycare, schooling and extracurricular activities and so much more.

According to research, the average cost for a middle-income family in Australia to raise two kids from birth to when they leave home is $812,000! That’s a lot of dollars for businesses to get a share of. Businesses that market strategically to families, are the ones that do.

Parents are always looking for ways to make the lives of their children and their families-better. Creating memories, and providing the best life they can for their family is what they strive for daily.

That’s why families are often off on an adventure, going to local events, trying new activities, and finding things to do at home and in their community.

Being a parent in the 21st century isn’t easy, raising kids in an ever changing world is a real challenge for families, and they need more support than ever. There is so much to worry about, and so much content out there that they don’t know if it’s credible or not. They are looking for brands they can trust.

Marketing to families takes trust. It takes commitment. It takes consistency.

That is why PakMag exists.

Marketing is an investment. When your advertising is shown to the right audience, in the right way,  it makes a business money. 

There are so many platforms these days, and none of them are free. They all take an investment of time and money to be successful and build engagement with the audience you are targeting.

There has never been a more exciting yet challenging time to advertise and market your business. If you want your business to grow, the best way to do that is through successful marketing campaigns; whether that be referral, word of mouth, signage, brand identity, content marketing, or advertising.


More platforms, equals more opportunities, but it also means more headaches as you try and navigate the never ending landscape and decide where best to invest your precious time and marketing dollar.

If you want to market to families- we’d love to help you.
