I focused my attention on blogging in early 2009, and I now blog consistently, six to seven days a week. My blog has grown steadily in readership and subscribers, and I've been Featured on several popular blogs and websites.
I love to partner with businesses and other bloggers to share products that are interesting to myself and, more importantly, to my readers. My readers love to see posts, reviews, and Giveaways about home improvement and home decor, crafting supplies, jewelry, gifts, hair accessories for women, children's clothes and accessories, craft items, and photography.
Some of the larger companies and sites I've successfully partnered with are Elmer's, Silhouette, Plaid, Dannon, Krylon, Kraft, Rubbermaid, HGTV, Lender's Bagels, and Duncan Hines.
What do sponsors receive at a competitive rate?
- I offer several 125px x 125px ads in a prominent spot next to the most recent post on my blog. (You must have your own static 125 x 125 button.) I do also feature a limited number of premium 261 x 125 ads from time to time.
- New sponsors will receive an introduction post dedicated to promoting their business.
- I always encourage a small giveaway from a sponsor to generate interest in the introduction post.
- I'd also like to set aside one weekend post per month to feature my sponsors and any specials, new products, or Giveaways that they have. I link to Twitter and Facebook.
If you think we'd be a good match, please contact me at AmandaSerenityNow@gmail.com for current rates.
Need a referral? Here's what some of my Sponsors have to say:
"Amanda is great to work with. She does a great job making sure her Followers are aware of her sponsors, and I feel you are getting a good "deal" and bang for your buck when sponsoring her blog. You're not just one sponsor among many that simply get lost in the sauce; but again, she does a great job of promoting and highlighting you. Thanks, Amanda!" -Sarah, Mississippi Mud
"Advertising on Serenity Now has definitely produced a bump in visits to my shop, and of course sales! Working with Amanda has been wonderful ~ she goes above and beyond for her sponsors and I will definitely be advertising with her again." -RJ, RJ Charms
"Amanda...goes above and beyond what most bloggers are willing to do for an affordable advertising price. When she posted about my shop, the number of views sky rocketed and I believe sales down the line were a result as well." -Anna, Crafty Girls Workshop
"Working with Amanda is a delight. She is always keeping me in the loop with what is going on with her blog that I may want to be involved in, and is always offering suggestions on ways to get my name out there. I thoroughly enjoy associating with her as a sponsor, and as a blog friend!" -Xazmin, Ribbon Blossoms Chic Boutique
