Have another idea? Just let us know and we’re happy to work with you on a sponsored post for our food blog.
All sponsored posts include at least three links back to your site – one at the beginning, one in the body of the post, and one at the very end as a “call to action”. Posts are 400 – 1000 words (except for video posts) and will include pictures of your product. We promote all of our sponsored posts on Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter multiple times over the course of a month, and in the case of recipes, we also upload to My Recipe Magic. Over the course of the next three months, we also link back to your post at least three times in subsequent posts, and will continue to do so when relevant from that point on.
Sponsored posts are also promoted in one of our PinterTest Kitchen e-newsletters.
Posts for your Blog:
Interested in having one of The PinterTest Kitchen gals write a post for your blog?
If you’re a fellow food/home/DIY blogger, let us know! We’re definitely interested in both paid and non-paid guest post opportunities that include a link back to The PinterTest Kitchen.
If you’re a brand, rates start at $100 + the cost of the ingredients (if you’re looking for a recipe) and depend on post/article length, whether or not we get a bio/link, etc.
The PinterTest Kitchen e-newsletter is sent once per week. This newsletter is sent in a follow-up fashion, rather than a broadcast fashion. So, not only will your sponsorship be seen by all current subscribers, but it will also be see by all future subscribers when they reach that newsletter in the sequence. So, this is an amazing way to continuously reach our audience.
There are three options for newsletter sponsorship:
- One-Time sponsorship: This will be seen by all current subscribers, but not future subscribers. Rate: $15 per 100 subscribers
- One Year sponsorship: This will be seen by all current subscribers and future subscribers in the next year. Rate: $15 per 100 current subscribers + $100
- Life Time sponsorship: This will be seen by all current and future subscribers. Your ad will never be removed from the newsletter. Rate: $15 per 100 current subscribers + $300
Contact us for current stats and projects or if you’d like a copy of our most recent newsletter.
We love to attend blogging and food conferences. If you’re interested in sponsoring one of our trips, we’d love to hear from your. Travel sponsorship starts at $500, and we’ll put together a package that works for you, which can include any of the above kinds of advertising, as well as things such as:
- Wearing your t-shirt during travel or at the conference (you must provide)
- Carrying a branded bag or backpack (you must provide)
- Working at your booth part of the time (if you’ll be exhibiting)
- Assist in booth set up or tear down
- Design marketing material for your brand to use at the event
- Giving out business cards branded with your information while networking at the event (your must provide)
- Meeting with specific people while at the event to talk about your brand
- Speaking in your behalf at the event
- Represent your brand at an unofficial (or official) dinner, party, or networking event
- Write posts about the experience before/after the event
- Liveblog a keynote or session
- Tweet from the event, mentioning your brand
We’re open to ideas! What we cannot do, however, is pass out samples, literature, etc. at an event where you have not purchased the rights to do so as an exhibitor or sponsor. This is considered suitcasing and is against the rules at most events. All sponsorships must fit into the events’ guidelines so there’s no risk of being asked to leave!
We’re always willing to work with awesome brands who have creative advertising ideas. Contact Allison today at allisonmboyer-at-gmail.com to discuss your budget and ideas. Let’s make it happen!
