Want to stand out from the competition?

In a competitive market, we are all looking for an advantage and the PTPA Seal of Approval is just that.

With a built-in community of over 70,000 families across North America, we have immediate access to just the right testers to evaluate your product. When our community loves your product, you’ll earn the PTPA Seal of Approval and so much more.

Your product will stand out from the competition because real parents voted that it meets their needs and earned their approval.

Next submission deadline is September 22nd for the Seal of Approval Award Campaign.

What our clients say…

The best advertising is word of mouth. If we can get people talking about our products, that’s our goal. PTPA has been an amazing outlet for this. We’ve enjoyed unique exposure through online contests, in Holiday gift buying guides, and on several television morning shows. When we launch our new product lines in the fall, the PTPA Media Awards are a key step.

PTPA’s strategy, audience, and reach are a perfect fit for the Harlem Globetrotters’ brand and marketing strategy in the U.S. and Canada. Parent Test Parent Approved is more than a community of moms and dads – they are led by a team of innovators who have helped shape the way the Globetrotters engage with fans on social media. Our ‘Twitter Party’ collaboration, for example, was a first for the Globetrotters. And thanks to power of PTPA and their bloggers, combined with our brand and our players, we became a ‘Trending Topic’ in the United States and Canada. That was quite the feat. We look forward to more creative partnerships as we work together more in the future.

The PTPA Seal of Approval has also proven to be a very powerful endorsement that has really increased brand awareness and brought legitimacy to many of our programs.
