Reviews / Giveaways
Reviews are conducted thoroughly and usually include original photos. We accept reviews for tech items, local services, home decor, indoor and outdoor activities, web sites (fee applies), appliances, movies, Nintendo 3DS video games, mobile apps (fee applies), and more. I only accept full-size products and these will not be returned. Products sent without prior approval may or may not be featured on the site. For giveaways, we ask the minimum value of the item be worth at least $100 and for the same item to be sent to Cookies & Clogs for compensation. Stand-alone giveaways can be hosted for a fee of $100 to cover promotion. Sponsors are required to ship items directly to winners within 14 days.
FAM Trips/Media Events
We are happy to travel to and provide coverage for your city/state or establishment from a family-friendly angle, including personal photos and experiences. We prefer to travel as a family but will sometimes travel as a couple to highlight ideas for parent date nights/getaways. Reviews can cover a variety of offerings such as spa services, lodging, dining, resort activities, transportation, and live events. Each venue will receive a dedicate post and live check-ins, tweets, Instagram posts.
These include up to two links* and are syndicated via Twitter and Facebook accounts. All posts are original and written by me with a minimum of 200 words. I do NOT feature guest posts or press releases at this time. Infographics will be posted at my discretion and the fees for such varies. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for rates.
Twitter Parties are fantastic for brand awareness and to encourage interactions with potential customers. Contact me at email@example.com to discuss your needs and to arrange custom pricing. Services include writing scripts, party hosting, recruiting co-hosts and/or panelists, tracking impressions, drawing winners, etc. If you are not familiar with this type of promotion, see my article, “What is a Twitter Party?” to read of the benefits to both attendees and sponsoring companies.
There are many other options we offer to promote brands we love including hosting brand ambassadorship, attending events (travel expenses must be covered), and accepting sponsorship for blogging conferences. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or via my contact form to discuss which of these may be the best fit for you and/or the company you represent.
We offer promotion via badges, widgets, social media promotion, and text links. Email email@example.com for rates.
