Don’t take our word for it. See what our clients are saying about us.
First Table is a restaurant discovery website that has a huge appeal to families in particular. Our key demographic is females aged 25 to 44. When First Table launched in Ballarat in July 2018 we investigated local media options that could connect our service to the local market and found Louise and the Ballarat Family Guide.
Louise was very honest about her service’s reach into the local families community and prepared to back this up with figures from previous campaigns. Her pricing seemed fair, so we went ahead.
We have been very impressed with the results – tracked with a unique promo code. In just four weeks there have been almost 150 new subscribers to First Table, and the understanding of how our product works through her editorial article is very high. We are very happy to endorse Ballarat Family Guide as a great platform to reach out to the local community with products that appeal to families.

Every town needs a Louise and their own version of Ballarat Family Guide. It has become the go to place for all things family related within our wonderful community. Not only has it been instrumental while GymbaROO Ballarat has been establishing itself here in town, since getting to know Louise and the team it has become apparent that they are wholeheartedly devoted to make Ballarat a truly family-centric city. I am privileged to work so closely with Ballarat Family Guide.
Mathew Knights, GymbaROO Ballarat
The Ballarat Family Guide & Magazine is of very high quality and contains fantastic and useful content for Ballarat families. For this reason I was very happy to advertise in the latest issue of the magazine. Louise has been very responsive and helpful. Thanks!

The Ballarat Family guide has been an absolute integral part of Noah’s Ark establishing itself within the local community as an important service available for families. The information provided by The Ballarat Family Guide for families and the greater community is dynamic, relevant, genuine and extremely useful. Both Noah’s Ark and The Ballarat Family guide look forward to continuing their strong partnership into 2018.

I don’t know where I would be without the Ballarat Family Guide! Between Louise’s amazing generosity with suggestions about how to improve my social media skills and the gorgeous photography work I have seen of Kathryn that inspires a fire in my belly to keep going at small business, I would say that the work these two professional women have done for Ballarat is amazing!
It has helped me kick of my business against the big corporate, systemic competitors who I can’t compete with because they are government funded but nevertheless. These women have kept me fighting the good fight to make my way into small, local business.
No matter what your budget, level of experience in the business world, being part of the Ballarat Family Guide can be the biggest stepping stone you can take.

I have had 3 new enquiries, and possible long term enrolments from the dance advertisement I placed on your website. Thanks!

Just wanted to let you know that I had a new client at Zumba tonight who said she read about my classes in BFG! She has just moved from Melbourne and said it’s fantastic. Yay!

And most importantly… our readers share how we have helped their families.
I love your website, magazine and blog and really appreciate what you are all about. What I love about this generation of Mum’s is that they are tech savvy, fun loving and busy people. Using apps and being online makes life more efficient but at the heart of it all is a desire to be the best Mum they can. Can’t buy that – but clearly you guys are helping pave the way.

I moved from Geelong not long before having kids, I didn’t know anybody with babies or pre-school children. So I found the guide really useful in searching for local services, kids programs, classes and activities and even simple things like good restaurants for kids or where to pay for petrol at the pump! I found the guide so helpful and I think it’s a fantastic resource. I enjoy reading the op shop reviews from Bianca at the Wardrobe Green and we joined Branch into Music after finding it on your site and have been attending for 2 years!

I just wanted to thank you for your site – my family is planning to move to Ballarat in the next 12 months and I have really found your website helpful in informing us of all the necessities. Keep it up!
Thank you for posting my question privately, it was fantastic. I knew going to you for help was the right thing to do. Your response to help and the suggestions from others is remarkable. No doubt i will be contacting you in the future if i think you can help.
Just wanted to say that I think your Family Mag is absolutely awesome. Congratulations ….it certainly shows how much effort you put into continual improvement / innovation. Very impressive.
Just had a read of the magazine. It is a fantastic resource and definitely getting better by the issue! Well done!
