Thank you for your interest in working with Thrifty Mom’s Reviews and More! I am a married, 27 year old stay at home mom of 2 boys (two year old son and 11 year old step-son). My husband is an electrician by trade as well as one of those guys who has taught themselves how to do a little of everything! I also have two dogs who were my babies before I had a baby.  I love to review all types of items from kids, to household, to pets of course with the help of everyone in my house!  I want to become a strong leader in the mom blog niche and would love to work with advertisers that have great family friendly products.If this is you, please continue reading for information on conducting reviews, giveaways, and other advertising options.

Thrifty Mom’s Reviews and More offers a variety of options for advertising as well as reviews and giveaways. To see these options and find the need that best suits you please read below.

Reviews
I am open to doing product reviews that are family friendly and are for products I feel would benefit my readers. Reviews are done free of charge. In order to do a review, I do require a full size sample of the product. Upon completion of the review, the product is mine to keep. Reviews will be posted within 4-6 weeks of receiving the product as to ensure time to actually use it and form a solid opinion. If you have a specific date in mind please let me know ahead of time and I will try my best to accommodate. All reviews will adhere to the FTC guidelines for disclosure.

 

Giveaways
Giveaways are a great opportunity to promote your product and I definitely encourage you to do one along with your review although this is a personal decision and is not required. I will do a giveaway without a review if requested, but I do require that I receive the same product that you are offering in the giveaway or one of equal value. I will be taking my time to put the giveaway together, promote it, and close it out when the time comes and this is my way of being compensated for this time. Giveaways will run for 10-14 days depending on the product. If you have a different time frame in mind please let me know. All giveaways will be conducted using Rafflecopter. The only mandatory entry I post is for entrants to visit your webpage and leave a comment on my post about something they like, learn, etc.. Many media sites have rules against using them as mandatory entries into a giveaway or sweepstakes.  I will add extra entries for entrants to follow your social media sites and visit your web page. Other entries will be added to follow my own and possibly other bloggers pages that help promote the giveaway. Upon closure of the giveaway, Rafflecopter will be used to randomly select a winner. This winner will be contacted for shipping information. Once I have this information, I will forward it to you and you will be in charge of shipping the product to them. Please ship the product within a reasonable amount of time. Please do not send me the giveaway prize to ship along with my review product unless you are enclosing a postage paid envelope as well.

If there is a second offense, you will no longer be welcome to advertise on this page.

One Response to Media Kit

  1. Hi, we have made a wonderful children’s DVD designed to enrich children’s learning while they are young and can so readily soak up and learn so much information so very quickly. We are two mums who watched our kids learning from TV and were inspired to make some shows that taught our kids lots of the fundamentals that would help (fast track) their learning for preschool.
    Each show is packed full of fun new possibilities to learn with a fun new character/host and different themes – your kids will soon be joining the Snapatoonies kids on the train calling out the answers as they have fun learning.
    We would like to send you a complimentary episode on DVD and ask you to do a review for us please. We know that this is just the kind of show that lots of responsible mums, dad’s and grandparents want their kids watching and enjoying so we would love your help in spreading the word.
    Naturally we would love a video review if you can do it – but a written testimonial and photo is always welcomed and appreciated.
    Also, if you would like – we will provide you with a special link which enables your readers to enjoy a big discount – compliments of you… just let us know if you are interested.
    We understand you are busy – so if you are interested in doing a review – please provide us with: Your name, address, and best email address to communicate with you on. Once we receive this we will pop a DVD in the post for you and look forward to hearing how much your little one enjoyed the show :)
    Thanks Lee and Jordi – mum’s and creators/producers of Snapatoonies
