Columbus, OH (PRWEB) April 12, 2006
We live in a fast-paced world where people like simple, convenient options. This is especially true of today's working parents who want to spend more time with their children and less time figuring out what that might consist of and when that might occur. For this reason, Internet web sites catering to busy people have become increasingly abundant. Look at the travel industry for example. Users of such sites can choose a date, time, and destination and choose from a long list of available vacation packages, sometimes for a fraction of the regular price.
LastMinuteBirthday.com is taking this travel-website approach and applying it to the birthday party industry by allowing party planners to search for available birthday party packages or services in their area on the day they want. This easy-to-use tool also provides parents with all the details: party genres, locations, dates, times, prices, extras, discounts, freebies, etc. The ads even display photos of the party places or services. “We want to offer parents the same format for party planning that vacation planners have had for years,” says LastMinuteBirthday.com founder, Shawn Covert. “Lay it all out there. Give them the details and let them pick.”
Parents know first hand how hard it is to shop and plan for birthday parties. Everyone is familiar with the couple big places in town but there are usually a good deal more. LastMinuteBirthday.com allows parents a glimpse of what else is out there. Users of LastMinuteBirthday.com select their metro area along with the date of their child’s special day. LastMinuteBirthday.com then lists all of the participating birthday party places and services in their area (acts as a directory), puts them in order by time (acts as an online scheduler), and gives links to birthday party package details (acts as a party planner). Parents can see what is included and what times are available. No more calling around and settling for the first availability. Parents can immediately contact the business by email to enquire about the ad. The party place receives this notification and promptly contacts the parents with further instructions. Now that’s convenience! And the best part about it: it’s FREE!
LastMinuteBirthday.com also includes a traditional birthday party directory and links to other great birthday-related sites such as invitations, party supplies, gift ideas, and more. Be ready to see the LastMinuteBirthday.com logo on other birthday party-related websites, as well. LastMinuteBirthday.com is allowing birthday party places and services to link to their database and allow others to view specific ads; thus, allowing customers to see their up-to-date availability. This website has closed the gap between birthday party planning and technology. It has quite possibly changed the way parents plan for and book birthday parties. As their logo suggests, birthdays just got easier. Party planners can find out more by visiting http://www.lastminutebirthday.com.
