I very carefully chose companies and brands to promote on my website.
I only work with brands who I feel are an extremely good fit for my site and my readers.
I believe this is better for your brand, my readers, as well as the integrity of my brand, as I’ll be promoting a company I truly love (you!) and you’ll be reaching an audience full of creative people directly in your niche (who trust and value my opinion)!
It’s a win-win situation. You get exposure, and I get to connect my readers with awesome brands they’ll love!
