Product Reviews and Recipe Development

Want to get your product in front of a new audience? I love to test products and to use new food items to develop unique multicultural recipes- especially with a Costa Rican twist!

Here’s how we can partner.

Product Reviews

I accept all types of products for review, but the acceptance of a product does not guarantee a positive review- or any review. I will give brands the right to respond to any complaints about a product before I publish it. (read- I won’t just throw your brand under the bus without talking to you first. Unless it’s really really bad.)

Recipe Development

Want your food product used in an original recipe? I can make that happen! Want your product showcased alongside an original recipe? We can do that too- food posts do extremely well on my channels, so this can be a great way to gain exposure.

These sugar free crispy asian Brussels sprouts are a super healthy option for those wanting a sweet and spicy sauce that tastes like it has a million calories- and really only has a few. With one secret ingredient, you will swear these sugar free crispy Asian Brussels sprouts are fried- they don't taste skinny at all!

Deliverables

Social Media- I will showcase your product to my audience. I will create photos, social media copy, Pinterest pins etc. Then, I promote it on my social channels- and tag you. A typical social media campaign includes:

  • 1 static Instagram post
  • 3-5 Instagram stories
  • 1 Facebook post on my professional page
  • 1-2 original pins
  • 5-6 tweets

Sample Original Social Media Campaign: Instagram Static | Instagram Stories | Facebook |

Social Media Amplification– already have the content you want and need to get it to a wider audience? I’ll amplify it on my social channels! 

Sponsored Blog Posts– I’ll create a blog post for your brand or product. I generally prefer to create original, evergreen, long-form Web content that is promoted over a long period of time. My standard deliverable for web content is the following

  • Original article 800-1300 words- keyword research using SEM Rush and Google Search Console, SEO optimized
  • 5-6 original images, vertical, square and horizontal for easy cross-promotion on social media
  • 1-2 Pinterest Pins
  • 1-3 links back to your site or product
  • I can also include your product in a roundup of similar products. This is a cheaper option!

Video Content

I create original, short-form videos for brands and products. This can be stop motion, product overview, recipe videos and more. I have my own Youtube channel, and love to upload native video to Facebook, IG TV and Pinterest.

Rates

You’ll have to contact me for rates- because they change depending on the season, and depending on how much room I have in my editorial calendar. Ask about bundle rates- if you are looking for multiple posts or types of social media promotion, I love to give discounts.

Note- I generally do not engage in product reviews solely in exchange for an affiliate opportunity. But- if I love your product, the sky is the limit in terms of how we can work together. Contact me- but make it worth my while! 🙂

I will always comply with all of the FTC Guidelines for social media posting, and the Google recommendations for no-follow and do-follow links. 

Equipment

A lot of brands ask about my equipment- and I get it. You aren’t looking for someone to snap a cell phone photo of your brand, throw it up on social media, and charge you a bunch of money for that. 

Rest-assured! I have professional equipment that includes: 

  • Macbook
  • iPhone 10
  • Canon 6D DSLR professional camera
  • DJI Mavic Drone
  • Sony Nex 5N mirrorless camera
  • Lightroom and PhotoShop digital image editing software

Oh- and I know how to use all of this like a boss too! 😉
