September has arrived and you know what that means in the blogging world – time to start working on the holiday gift guides and giveaways! In the past, we have worked with SMGN (Social Media Gurus Network) but this year we are shaking things up a bit and going back to hosting our own gift guides and giveaways for a more personal approach!
Let’s be real for a moment, 2020 has been a year of change for everyone. We understand that many lost their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic, or may still be without work. Unfortunately, as the states have begun reopening with restrictions in place, it still is not a return to normal. We understand that because we are struggling to maintain as well.
So we get that budgets are small, gift-giving this year may be different due to the coronavirus pandemic, which is where we come in.
I love companies that understand me, as a consumer, and know what I am going through. So companies that offer great products, warranties, discounts, etc. to help me with my gift-giving this year are going to be the companies that I continue to be loyal to in the years to come.
We are looking for small businesses and large businesses alike with great products that they want to get in front of consumers. So we have several options to choose from to fit your needs and budget.
The 2020 Holiday Gift Guide Event Begins 11/1/2020
Below you will find detailed information with regard to the packages we are offering this year.
If you would like to have us mention your product specifically on a social media platform, we are happy to oblige. This does not get your product listed on the 2020 Holiday Gift Guide. You are paying for promotion on social media ONLY – Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
We will share a photo of your product and provide a link to where your product can be purchased. (We will use an affiliate link unless you specifically ask us to use a different link). We will share your product twice between November 23 and December 23, 2020, on the social media channel of your choice.
This will include your product in our 2020 Holiday Gift Guide beginning November 1, 2020, and will include the following:
- name of your product
- link where our readers can purchase (website, Amazon, Etsy, etc.)
- one pinnable image under the applicable gift section
Gift Guide Sections will include:
- Children 0-24 months
- Children 2 to 5 years
- Children 5 to 12 years
- Entertainment (Books, DVDs, Games, etc.)
- Food and Drink
- Health and Beauty
- Stocking Stuffers
We will also have a 2020 Holiday Gift Guide board available on Pinterest where each of your products and services will be pinned. If you wish to send us your product free-of-charge for a dedicated review apart from inclusion in the gift guide, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our gift guides remain available long after the holidays are over so our readers can check back when they are shopping for birthday, anniversary, graduation gifts and more.
If you wish to have your product giveaway done separately and not included in the Grand Giveaway, we will prepare a giveaway post similar to this previous giveaway and we will enlist the help of our fellow bloggers at Blogger Opps and Giveaways Galore to promote your giveaway event to their readers as well.
Giveaways will run for a period of 2 weeks, and be shared across the social media channels of all participating bloggers at least 2x per week. Once the giveaway has ended, we will choose and verify the winner and provide their information to you. All giveaways must end by December 5, 2020. We ask that products be mailed within 4-7 days after receipt of their information.
If you have a smaller product and do not want to do a separate giveaway, we can include it in our Christmas Grand Giveaway. We will prepare a giveaway post similar to this previous giveaway and we will enlist the help of our fellow bloggers at Blogger Opps and Giveaways Galore to promote the Christmas Grand Giveaway to their readers in exchange for a link on the giveaway to their website and/or social media platform.
Giveaway will run from November 1, 2020, to December 5, 2020, and will be shared across the social media channels of all participating bloggers at least 2x per week. Once the giveaway has ended, we will choose and verify the winner and provide their information to you. We ask that products be mailed within 4-7 days after receipt of their information.
The Christmas Grand Giveaway will only be available to residents of the United States to allow ample time for the products to be shipped to the winner prior to Christmas.
Packages must be purchased prior to October 20, 2020, to allow us to prepare each item accordingly. If you wish to include more than one product in our gift guide and/or giveaway event, you will receive 40% off the package price for each additional product.
I will be recruiting members of my Facebook Group – Blogger Opps and Giveaways Galore – to assist in promoting the 2020 Holiday Gift Guide and Giveaway events. Each of the bloggers in this group is experienced in hosting and promoting giveaways and know that generating a buzz about your brand during the holidays is the best way to generate sales.
Our bloggers are family-friendly, so products must be family-friendly as well.
Should you have any questions or require additional information, please reach out to me via the contact form below. I look forward to working with you!
