Product reviews are a great way for you to gain exposure for your brand. I love to blog and I love to review great products and host giveaways in doing so we always strive to give quality reviews with an honest opinion. I try to focus my attention on family friendly items. I look for items relating to motherhood, parenting, and children. I am pretty open to trying new things!
Product Reviews and Giveaways
We are always looking for family friendly products, books, services that help make being a mom easier! We have reviewed a large variety of family friendly products including but definitely not limited to: mothers jewelry, green living, DVDs also blu-Ray, toys, family health products, food, games, products for the home, software, meal planning, educational products and many different types of mom-owned shops with a variety of products.
Offering a giveaway in conjunction to a review is the most popular choice. It requires that readers actually visit your site and leave an entry comment based on what they find there, this option gives you the best visibility. Product sent to me for review will not be used as the giveaway nor will it be sent back to you after the giveaway. Giveaways are done free of charge when combined with a product review. There will be a fee involved for giveaways requested without a product review.
Giveaways typically last for 7 days and depending on popularity may run for a full 2 weeks. The winner is selected via Random.org and is contacted via email. They have 48 hours to respond to my email or another winner will be drawn. I will email you with the winner's shipping info as soon as it is received.
When contacting me for a giveaway, please include the following in your email:
* The name of the product, the current retail value, and any images that can be used in the giveaway.
* Please note who is eligible to enter (ie: US only, US and Canada only, or Worldwide)
* If you would like any social media sites included as extra entries (Facebook, Twitter, blog, etc.) NOTE: The mandatory entry will usually be to ask the reader to visit your site and comment on their favorite product, color, etc. Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites will be posted may be used as extra entries into the giveaway at your request. It is against FTC regulations to ask a reader to make a purchase for a bonus entry.
Have a great family friendly destination? We'd love to travel to your resort, hotel, vacation spot, etc, and review your destination for our readers.
How does a review and giveaway work?
For a review, I do require a product sample, which is not to be returned, so that I can experience the product for myself and write an honest review. I do my best to point out all of the positive parts of the product and the company. I also include a direct link to the company’s main website and product’s site if applicable. The giveaways run for 2 weeks and I prefer to have the company ship the prize directly to the winner unless otherwise requested.
Will you email me when your review is posted?
Once the review is posted, I will email you the link to the review. I’ll do my best to keep you updated.
Do you charge to advertise on your site?
We would love to begin building a relationship with you and your brand. We would love to test out new products that you have entering the market as well as products that are already in market. Please contact us if you have any questions.
