Bump Society Q & A

Why are there no vendors in my city/state in a certain category?

We put our mommies first in choosing every member of our Bump Society. If we aren’t happy with the quality of vendors for a particular category, we will happily leave that spot empty until we find someone that meets our standards. The Bump Society is a hugely unique business platform that brings the best artists and designers into the hands of our modern mommies. You can email us a request at info ( @) blmommy.com and we will gladly help you on our search for a business in your area.

Why are there only a few vendors per category in a city?

We wanted to give you our favorite vendors, the most passionate ones, not based on the size of the vendor or the advertising dollar but based on quality and dedication for both their art and clients. Not everyone listed in our guide is well-known in the industry or have a high social media following. Some are hot up-and-comers, a few are husband/wife teams, sister duos, or an amazing one-man show. Our editors want to show you that alongside the well-known professionals, there are often equally-talented newbies and smaller businesses. By only featuring businesses we adore, we can honestly feature them on our blog and in our magazine.

 

How do you choose a business for the Bump Society?

The process to become a Bump Society business is thoughtfully extensive.

First, we believe that word of mouth is gold and prefer recommendations by our Beauty & Lifestyle Mommy reader, a recent mother or father, or an industry professional. We don’t simply look for a referral but rather for a business that would be a perfect fit for our readers.We also consider applications from interested businesses who apply for an invitation.

Second, we thoroughly immerse ourselves into a vendor’s business. Their portfolio, their experience, and their time in the industry as a professional. We look at press that they have already received, we get to know who they are, and why they are passionate at what they do. Our editors themselves spend time conducting research and handpicking out those we believe are truly devoted to their art and their clients.

And finally, after feeling completely confident that a business is perfect for our readers, we invite them to be a part of our Bump Society! It’s an invitation-only list that truly prides itself on its commitment to quality over quantity! The perfect source for expecting and new mothers.

 

Do the businesses pay to be listed?

When a business  is accepted onto our Bump Society, they will pay a modest membership fee to be listed and marketed to our readers. We have intentionally set our prices low, so that small and large businesses alike can easily be a member. If we can’t find the quality of businesses  for a particular category, we will happily leave that spot empty until we find a business that meets our standards of excellence. The Bump Society is a an elite advertising platform that brings the best artists and designers into the hands of modern mommies both online & in print.
