Pretty Opinionated is a lifestyle blog women- especially single moms! I cover everything from gift ideas for the whole family and fun products to help make life easier to health & beauty tips and more. All of my tips and how-to articles focus on practical advice that anyone can do without having to embark on a journey to find some rare ingredient or spend a fortune and weeks of time changing their entire lifestyle. It’s REAL advice for really busy moms! We can’t all be June Cleaver, after all!
2015 Advertising Opportunities
Please contact me for rates.
Pretty Opinionated loves sharing reviews of fabulous products & services that make life easier or more fun. Please see my review policy for full details about what we accept and how the process works.
Think of sponsored posts as custom editorials. Each post is crafted based on specifications to include relevant information about your product and its benefits for my readers. Each post is a minimum of 400 words and can include nofollow links to your website and social media sites. Sponsored posts are also promoted via all social media channels.
Get your product in front of readers and create buzz with a giveaway hosted on Pretty Opinionated. I will organize the giveaway; advertise it on Facebook, Twitter and Giveaway sites. Mandatory entry typically involves asking the entrant to tell us something they love about your product or company through a comment on our post. Additional entries may include following you on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube or subscribing to your newsletter. Giveaways are free if part of a review. Otherwise, I charge an administration fee.
Social Media Shout-Out Packages
Leverage my social media following to shout out about your company’s amazing product or service. Choose from Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or all three! Packages can include as little as one tweet to as many as 10 across all channels.
The term “ambassadorship” means something different to everyone. To me, it’s a longer-term partnership than a single sponsored post or short series. While the exact term is negotiable, when I’m your ambassador I’m not just writing about your product on my site. I’m sharing it with friends, family and family of friends and friends of family. You get the point. It’s an online and offline partnership. Online, it includes multiple posts, social media updates and giveaways (if desired).
Graphic Ads and Banners
Due to contracts with other ad networks, all graphic ad slots are “below the fold.” I do offer one spot at a time to advertisers inside posts, under the comment box.
