If you’d like to contribute an article to the Melville Mums website, complete this submission form.

Our Getting to Know… blog series was created to showcase the amazing business owners in our community and to allow our audience to learn more about you, your business and how you contribute to the local community. The post can include a profile picture, up to 3 relevant images plus web and social media links.

Writing an expert article or being featured in a Getting to Know… post is available only to Premium Featured (Annual) directory listing owners. See more information about listing on the Melville Mums local business directory here.

Advertorials & Reviews

Advertorials (sponsored articles) are similar to articles in that they contain useful information for the reader, but can also include business-specific promotional information within the article body. For example, you may wish to use an advertorial to promote an event, special offer, or a new product or service. One of our experienced writers (who are also local mums) will work with you to create copy that resonates with our audience and showcases your business in the best possible way.

If you have a product or service that our audience would love to hear about, we can help you promote it! One of our Melville Explorers will trial your product/service and produce a write-up including photos of their experience.
