Chasing Davies: Let's Work Together

Let's Work Together

Chasing Davies accepts sponsors and would love to collaborate with other bloggers, shops, Etsy sellers, brands, online sites, etc to bring your relevant message to my readers! There are a variety of options available and custom opportunities may be negotiated.  Let me know your ideas and we'll find a solution that works for you, this site and the readership.  *Please note, at this time I am not able to craft custom posts or include your message for social shares.

Sponsored Post/In-Post Advertising
I will consider on a case by case basis in-post advertising from a full, stand alone post to a custom theme or text link inclusion, however, the subject must fit the look, feel and content of my blog. I do not accept all offers to keep the integrity of my blog's own subject matter.

 Full review of assets must first be approved by me and payment via Paypal must be received before post will be scheduled to go live.  These types of partnerships are compensated, and the amount will vary depending on the scope of the project. Email me to discuss further.

Social Integration
I can also work with your brand via my social channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest) to highlight your own social channel, integrate a product or share an image or link. You can take advantage of just one or we can create a cross-social channel campaign to meet your needs.  This is a great idea if you budget is not conducive to a sponsored post (above).

Giveaways are a great way to get your product or service to Chasing Davies readers.  I consider giveaways on a case by case basis, as the promotion must align with my blog and be something of interest for my readers. Please note, fulfillment of giveaway, shipping and any other associated costs are handled by the advertiser directly.

Because Giveaways also receive a great amount of promotion via my other social channels and a stand alone post, they require an accompanying banner ad purchase, trade or fee (to be determined on a case by case basis). Often a giveaway paired with another from of blog integration/advertising has the best outcome of success.

Banner Advertising
Ad units can be placed on my side bar and vary in sizes. All ads are priced on a 30 day basis that you can start any day of the month as long as a spot is available. There are premium ($50), highlighted ($30) and entry level ($20) positions, and a custom size can be discussed (priced TBD).  NEW unit added: an in-post banner ad at the bottom of every post for one month ($250) or week ($100).

Product Integration (Gifted Items)
Advertisers may send me items that fit with my blog's content to be integrated into my posts naturally.  The items must ultimately be selected by me to be something that I'd want to wear/use/include in a blog post.  No specific costs are associated with this placement as long as there are no requirements in how the products be integrated into my blog or social channels, nor special links used.  Furthermore, inclusion is not 100% guaranteed. If you are looking for something more specific and/or guaranteed, review the Post Sponsorship/In-Post Advertising section for more info.

Custom Program or Packaged Opportunities
I am open to discussing custom opportunities or any specific ideas the advertiser may have. Package deals and discounts are also available for 3+ month or multiple placement purchases. Please email me to discuss and get a price estimation.

Event Hosting, Blogger Outreach and Series Collaborations
I have been a blogger for 7 years, but in advertising and marketing since 2005.  Combining my two passions brings a specialization in influencer marketing and outreach that is unmatched.  I have years of experience in coordinating blogger events, experiences and digital support for brands from globally known to small businesses.

I can help your brand reach the right mix of influencers on a large or small scale to help bring awareness to your product, showcase experiences or personalize your brand. 

Guest Posting
If you are a brand or site looking to build their SEO and have specific text links included in a post, please refer to the above Post Sponsorship/In-Post Advertising section.

For true guest posts, I often times will open my blog up for guest posts from other relevant and active bloggers.  Watch my social channels and blog for those openings and requests.  If you are interested, and don't see an offer, feel free to email me your pitch.

In the past, I have allowed some half-hearted guest posts to go live on my blog, so I've set forth a few rules to help guide the guest poster into submitting what will get published, but also intrigue my readers to check out your blog further.  This is for both our benefits.

Requirements of a Guest Post:
A minimum of two unique and/or own photos sized at 640 pixels wide (length can vary, max 1200 pixels long).
Subject matter must fit my blog or the guest-post request ask.
Must link to the guest post hosted on my blog or my site URL from your blog AND social channels once your guest post is live.
Maximum of two links to your own properties included in post.
Either send guest post content as an HTML file (write it in your own blog first, copy and paste into a word or text doc) or in an email with text in the email body and photos attached with direction on how you want it laid out.
Guest posts may not be published if do not follow these directions or don't meet my standards.
If you have any questions, email me!
