Have a tip or suggestion for the blog? Definitely throw me a line! (Especially if sprinkles might be involved.)
Here’s what I’m generally looking for:
- Secret menu items and places
- Unusual and fun desserts
They don’t have to be in Seattle! I’m Seattle-based but do bounce about, especially on the west coast.
A Sponsored Product/Giveaway FAQ – or, you want to send me stuff, hooray!
What can you not eat?
Sweet: coffee or espresso powder, in any form/amount.
Savory: this gets tricky. Here are the main allergies/sensitivities:
- Eggs in whole form (scrambled/poached/hard-boiled). I can eat eggs when incorporated into the dish, such as in cakes or custard. I also get nauseous from the smell of cooked eggs if there’s not enough ventilation.
- Tomatoes (I can eat sauces, but not whole tomato anything)
I’m really not a fan of:
- Tons of avocado
- Bell peppers
- Tons of cardamom
Also, I generally don’t drink alcohol. I can drink things with small amounts of alcohol, like bitters, but I’m not your person if you want a cocktail or spirits brand reviewed. (However, I think bartenders do amazing things and I love seeing them work, and I adore mocktails.)
I use a touch of [coffee/espresso powder] in my recipe. Will that be okay to send you?
I can generally taste trace amounts of coffee in desserts. I won’t get sick, but I will think it tastes really bad.
I would love for you to post it by [this day]. Is that possible?
Yes! I do sponsored posts, and you’ll get to choose the release date so you’re all squared away.
This starts at $100 for a sponsored post, depending on the type of post and what the guidelines are. Nice!
(I will always offer posts for product, but they’re put into the calendar where I have space. This can be 1-3+ weeks out.)
Why do you charge this much?
Because to do this right will take me 2-3+ hours.
After we agree on a plan, I need to: shoot, write the content, plan your custom hashtags, edit it all, post, and then engage with my audience. And that’s not including planning, getting the product, making sure it’s up to standards, and building out the shoot. All this so you can see the pure awesome at the end.
I’m a small business and money is tight. Is this a good investment for me?
I don’t want you to be worried about your budget to host a sponsored post! That’s not fun.
Sponsored posts are best when:
- You want to get the word out on a certain date, like for a launch. Then you’re guaranteeing that the word gets out when and how you need it. That is always incredibly valuable.
- You want a special type of post. Want a giant cake to happen, or for me to shoot a video? Awesome! Want one of my epic mashups starring your goodies? Sure! While I might do something out of the ordinary for a regular post, it’s not guaranteed.
Sponsored posts are not a good match when your money is tight. They’re also not a good match if you’re not sure what the best match is for your work. If your goal is to get the word out in general, a post traded for product will be just fine for your needs.
What do your sponsored posts look like?
Here are some examples of posts for groups I’ve worked with:
I have more questions. How do I ask them?
Send me an email! I’d love to help out.
