PR/Advertising

Welcome! I’ve put this page together for PR Agents, companies, brands and individuals who are keen to work with me and tap into the Be A Fun Mum readership.

PR Agents

I enjoy working with PR agents, and together we’ve put together brilliant posts.  I’m primarily looking for content for this blog; however I do run giveaways and write review sometimes. I don’t charge for reviews or giveaways, nor do I have a minimum value amount for giveaways. That said, relevance of the product to my readers, value of giveaway and interest in the pitch does play a part in my decision.

Interests

I’m interested in a vast array of subjects and products.  Listed below are a few particular areas I’m passionate about. However, I am very open minded when it comes to content for my readers and so am in no way limited to these. I’ve written about turf, dolls, air freshener, toothbrushes, hair dye, DVDs, movies, books, blogger events, technology, pasta, road safety, jewellery and many other subjects you can browse here: Reviews and Giveaways.

Passionate about

  • Travel
  • Vintage
  • Quality Toys
  • Shoes
  • Handmade and fair trade
  • Beauty products
  • Jewellery
  • WAHMs

Approach

What I look to feature in products, is value and personal connection. I also believe in the power of storytelling and how this can play a part in marrying products with people. I take my own photos, videos and use my social media channels like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to feature posts. I also follow up on any questions posed on the posts, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and answer email enquires relating to a product many months after it has gone live. Basically, if the post is on my blog, I care for it.

No. I’m very open-minded when it comes to products and services.  Although, the value amount and relevance of the product or service will play a part in my decision.

I don’t do many straight reviews (that is: without a giveaway). However, if I’m enamoured with the product and the pitch is good, you might just win me over. I offer reviews in my newsletter. See the Newsletter section above.

No. I want the small amount of reviews on this blog to be unbiased and free of charge. I do charge for a dedicated review spot on the newsletter.

Do you run media releases?

No. All content on this blog is absolutely unique. However, I read every email I receive in my inbox and will follow up on a well written media releases if there is an opening space on my blog, the product/service suits my  readership and there is an opportunity to turn the media release into unique content.

Can I add you to our email mailing list?

Sure. I read every email that comes into my inbox, even if it’s not particularly addressed to me. I will follow up on emails that grab me.  I am not able to reply to every email but I don’t mind receiving general emails in my inbox.

If I haven’t heard from you, does that mean you’re not interested?

I like the idea of running this blog in a professional manner; however my first and foremost job is being mother to my four children and wife to my husband. If I haven’t responded to your email, please feel free to follow me up again. I will always try and respond but if I don’t, things are probably busy around home and on the blog. This doesn’t particularly mean I’m not interested in your product/service but it may not be the best time so feel free to pitch again. If something really grabs me, I will usually respond within 3 days.

Can I post you a product to try?

I love trying new things. However, this blog is focused on content and I rarely write reviews.  This said, I use my social media channels to talk about various products and services I use and enjoy.

Do you run banner advertising?

I run a limited amount of banner advertising on the blog. You can read more under the Advertising section above.

Hi Kelly,
Just found your website. Good on you! It is refreshing and inspiring. I am a mum with 5 young children (11, 9, 6, 4, and 1). I have been working part time but i am having some time off as we have just moved to Queensland and wanted to help everyone get settled.
I thought I would let you know about some Holiday Accommodation that we own at Yamba. We purchased a half share in these cottages when my husband was a Primary School Teacher and we needed to take our holidays during peak periods. Ray White, Yamba manages our booking but we also operate an eBay store to try and fill in some of the gaps in booking. We would love to see more families enjoy holidays with their children and we aim to provide very affordable accommodation so that families can get away together without too much expense. An off peak week in one 2 bedroom self contained cottage is $350.00. You can see some photos on our eBay store.
Maybe there is someway that you can promote Yamba Beach Cottages on your website and receive some financial reward for each booking that you help secure? Also, if you are interested in taking your family away and then letting people know what it was like- we can work out a good price for you.
Anyway, let me know what you think,
Kind Regards, Louise Williams mob 0438 688456

Hi Louise
Yamba is a lovely spot. I’ll have a look. I actually write travel articles for the site http://www.brisbanekids.com.au so perhaps we could work something out in that regards. I’ll be in touch.

Hello Kelly,

Firstly, I would like to say WOW! Your blog is fantastic and such an inspiration for living life right now. I don’t have children (yet) but my 3 nephews as well as my students provide me with unending joy. I believe that kids intuitively know how love the moment, and that we lose this as we get older.

I own and run a literacy tuition business in Sydney. In the spirit of fun, we are called Word Play. We encourage kids to engage with literacy and find joy in reading and writing. We play games, write silly stories and enjoy the stories of Roald Dahl and other great authors with our students. I would like to reach out to more families as I believe we provide an excellent service for kids who struggle to learn to read and write. I would also like to help parents to help their kids.

I know you are in Brisbane. If you lived in Sydney, I would invite your kids over for a lesson so that you might see how we work.

I know that you have a teacher who writes for your blog. I’m not a teacher, but a special educator and literacy tutor so I hope I wouldn’t be stepping on anyone’s toes. You have said that you accept guests posts occasionally. Would you be interested in an article with some inventive, fun ways to get kids reading and writing? As this is my job, I have spent a lot of time making literacy engaging for kids who have come to dread it. I also find worksheets boring myself!

I would love to hear back about whether you think you could use any tips for parents about making literacy fun.

Kind regards,

De
