Pea of Sweetness is a PR Friendly Blog!
Thank-you for your interest in working with Pea of Sweetness!
Would you like for me to review your product(s)?
Please send me an e-mail at email@example.com
Reviews are a great way to get exposure for your product, service, or brand. The more reviews that are written about a product, the more likely it is to have great sales.
I am open to review products that are family-friendly and fit well with our content. We are a homeschooling family of four. My three children are ages 10 (boy), 10 (girl), and 6 (boy). We also have one LARGE dog (Italian Mastiff), 3 cats, a gerbil and fish. (You can read more about our family here.) All of our family (including myself) are part of our review team!
Consumable products must be natural/eco-friendly. What does this mean? Generally speaking it refers to products such as foods, drinks, cosmetics, bath/body/beauty, etc. Part of my goal/mission at Pea of Sweetness is to share and educate on eco-friendly living as well as the dangers of harsh chemicals, preservatives, food dyes, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors, artificial colors, parabens, phthalates, etc. See About Me for more details on why this is important to our family. When in doubt – please feel free to ask!
*I’m sorry, I am not taking book reviews at this time.*
PLEASE ALLOW UP TO SIX WEEKS FOR YOUR REVIEW.
It normally won’t take that long, but that is the LONGEST I’ll ever hold off on doing a review – unless we have already been in contact about it. I usually write reviews anywhere from 1 week to between 2-3 weeks after I receive the product (with the exception of busy times like holidays, which has a slower turnaround) and/or after I have had sufficient time to sample the product depending on the nature of the product. I will contact you after I receive the product to confirm your contact information as well as verify information to be included in the review (such as your website, social media links, etc.). This will make sure our communication has been clear.
Each review will contain a minimum of 300 words (they are usually closer to 500 words), company logo and possibly a stock photo of the product, and photos of the product(s) being used (if applicable) including a Pinnable image. I strive to be very thorough in my reviews. Presentation and grammar are very important to me as well, so the reviews will also look clean and professional. I follow FTC guidelines and “nofollow” links per Google policy, which protects my sponsors as well.
Reviews will be shared across social media to 50,000+ followers and promoted regularly.
Requirements for reviews: For a review it is required that you send a full-size product with a minimum value of $25.00 free of charge including shipping or multiple products that add up to $25.00. Anything less, the difference between the product value and $25.00 may be paid via PayPal. Review products will not be returned.
With each product(s) review I am happy to offer a giveaway. A giveaway is NOT required but is definitely appreciated (and will definitely get you more exposure). People are more likely to respond when there is an initiative involved. Giveaways are done in addition to a review (please refer to review requirements above). I network with and work closely with other bloggers to help get you more exposure for your products through the giveaways.
Giveaways run for 2 weeks unless a different time frame is requested specifically by the sponsor. I create a Pin on Pinterest of each giveaway and I, personally, share giveaways on my social media outlets multiple times throughout the giveaway: every 1-2 days on Twitter and every 3-4 days on my Facebook Fan page and Google+ – a total reach of 50,000+ followers. I also have an active Facebook Giveaway Group where I share only my giveaways with over 2,750 members. I share giveaways on various giveaway sites as well.
*Please note: If you would like me to run a giveaway campaign without a product for review, that option IS available. Giveaways without product reviews are $30.00 and all of the above promotion applies. (Giveaways with product reviews are included with the review.)*
If you represent a Direct Sales/Network Marketing Company please keep in mind that I will space out reviews for that specific company at least 6 months from a previous review (there may be an exception with sponsored posts or advertisements, which we will discuss at the time). As direct sales representative, myself, I know I wouldn’t appreciate my review/giveaway on someone’s site to be followed up shortly after by someone else representing the same company. Many direct sales companies often frown upon this as well, so please be sure you are following your company’s advertising guidelines as well. I do not know all of them for each company, so it is your responsibility to stay within your company’s requirements.
