Reviews, Giveaways & Events – Frugal Novice

Reviews, Giveaways & Events

I’d love to review your product – as long as you’re family-friendly and I think my readers would be interested! I often host giveaways in conjunction with a review because they tend to garner higher traffic, but giveaways are not required for me to write a review. Please e-mail me if you’d like a media kit, or if you have any questions!

Why do a review or giveaway with me?

Blog reviews and giveaways are an effective and cost-effective way to reach audiences through an accessible voice. It’s easy for people to tune out traditional advertising, but when they read blog reviews they get information on products from a real person, whom they connect with and often feel like they know. Blog reviews work in a similar fashion to word-of-mouth advertising. One person shares a product on their blog, and exposure can spread like wildfire.

A key group of bloggers are becoming more interesting to advertisers – mom bloggers. This group of women is a valuable and powerful demographic to reach.

Now you know why blog reviews can be such a vital part of an advertising campaign; here’s why reviews on this blog are valuable for you – I write detailed reviews with high-quality photos, and can even include video if requested. I go above and beyond to make a review beneficial for each client, while still providing an honest opinion for my readers. I work hard to publicize my posts, using Facebook, Twitter and a variety of blogging networks I’m a part of.  I recognize the importance of communication and am sure to inform clients when products arrive, to ask for clarification on any questions I may have, and to send a link as soon as the review post is live.

    Hi Christi,
    My name is Stephanie and I’m a fan of your blog! Your posts are inspiring, relevant and informative.

    I’m writing to you since I’m working with a brand I think you’d be interested in collaborating with. The brand is called DHP, a home furnishing division of Dorel Industries and North America’s largest futon manufacturer. Our company-wide brands include Cosco, Quinn, Safety 1st, Maxi-Cosi, Shwinn, Cannondale, Mongoose, Sugoi, Ameriwood Industries, Altra Furniture, etc. At DHP, we design and make stylish, contemporary, multi-functional pieces of furniture at an affordable price, ideal for your target audience.

    We recently launched an improved version of our website. I’m sure if we collaborate together, we could drive some serious attention and a whole lot of new readers to your blog in the process. We have a big presence in the North American market as our products are sold at all major retailers like Walmart, Target, Sears, Kmart, Amazon, just to name a few.

    We love your blog – your tone, honesty, sense of style and audience. We’d love to explore creative ways of collaborating together.

    Interested? If so, I could send you some new designs to see if you like our products. We are also open to providing an extra product as a giveaway to help drive more traffic.
