How can I place an ad or sponsor the blog?
We love working with brands and offer affordable ads as well as opportunities for sponsored posts, mentions, links, giveaways and social media promotion. We work with big brands but also love working with emerging creatives to help spread the word about their businesses. We only work with brands that we personally love and cherish. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request our sponsorship packet.
We only write about and feature products that we love and use personally but some posts on our blog include affiliate links. This means that when you click on a product and purchase it, we may receive a small commission. We also feature products and services from our sponsors and partners. Sometimes we are financially compensated for featuring these items/services, or we are given the products/services or the products/services are given to us to give away to our readers in contests. Thank you so much for supporting the brands that help keep Dear Handmade Life in business.
