Working Together

I am happy to work with brands should any PR folk wish to collaborate. This includes paid for:

  • Sponsored Posts (see examples on my Sponsored page)
  • Product Reviews (see examples on the Product Review page)
  • Giveaways / Competitions Hosting (see examples on the Competition page)
  • Videos / Vlogs (see examples on my Videos page)
  • Guest Posts / Articles / Commentary for other websites (see examples on my As Featured On page)
  • Brand Rep / Ambassador (Previously Brand Rep for Huggies, Organix, Lilly & Sid, The Big Little Tent Festival, Silentnight and DisneyLife)
  • Large PR Campaigns, which often comprise of multiple elements from above

Please note, I do not accept guest posts, I don’t sell banner advertising, I don’t write ‘gift guides’, I’m not interested in working for exposure, I don’t fancy promoting your Kickstarter for free, high-res images aren’t enough incentive to review a product and I don’t sell follow links.

 

Previous And Current Collaborations

I’ve worked with a large number of companies ranging from household names through to up-and-coming brands of varying sizes. Due to the content and audience of this blog, the majority of companies I work with are directly related to areas such as parenting, family, home, babies, kids, fatherhood and being a bloke. Brands I have collaborated with on campaigns, product reviews, competitions, sponsored posts and other stuff include:
