An important part of my mission is introducing my readers to quality brands and products that are worth their money. Although many of my product or vendor reviews are based on my own independent purchases, I also welcome the opportunity to learn about new products submitted for review. By partnering with companies I am able to speak first-hand about and introduce my readers to more great products than my personal means would allow. Thank you for helping to make my vision for JenSpends.com possible!
My product reviews are thorough, detailed and honest. I include my own photographs whenever possible so that you and my readers can be sure that I have used the product myself and have based my opinion on my experience. I have consistently received great feedback from the brands I have worked with who appreciate my attention to detail. To conduct a review, I will require free product that will not be returned. See Product Review examples…
Sponsoring a giveaway in conjunction with a product review is a great way to gain exposure for your brand. I heavily promote giveaways on Twitter, Facebook and other relevant websites. I will also consider hosting a giveaway without a product review in exchange for equal product or compensation.
Trips and Conferences
As a mom, my priority is my family. I love to travel and enjoy attending family-friendly events that will allow me to bring my well-behaved son along (or let him chill with his daddy in the hotel). I usually decline events that require me to find a sitter or be away from my family overnight.
As a PR professional, you probably have some great promotional ideas that I haven’t even thought of! I would love to work with you to help promote the brands and products that I believe in. I am happy to consider brand ambassadorships, guest blogging, commercials and more. I have past experience with promotions via Twitter and co-hosting a live video chat.
Jen Spends has a variety of ad spaces available for purchase. Please contact me for available spots and rates. At this time I do not offer keyword-based text links.
What I don’t do
I take my website and my readers seriously, with the intent to be educational, not advertorial. I do not accept monetary compensation to publish content written by someone else. I will not review or otherwise promote a product or service unless I have had personal experience with that product or service. I do not publish press releases (even for compensation), but if I feel that the content is interesting and relevant to my website, I may discuss it in my own words. In short, my goal is to be as genuine as possible, and positive press cannot be purchased from JenSpends.com.
I include a brief disclosure message on all posts discussing a specific product or brand so my readers are aware of any business relationships that may influence my opinion. I value honesty and integrity and want my readers to feel that my website is a trustworthy resource.

Thank you for considering JenSpends.com for your promotional project!
