Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

Every Thanksgiving hostess has his or her moments of anxiety. Hell, I've been making holiday dinners and hosting dinner parties for a decade, and I still get a little nervous when it come to roasting the perfect turkey. That combined with kids, houseguests, and having to make an endless supply of side dishes all timed in perfect harmony...it's a lot for one person. Hopefully by the time you've read this post, I will have answered any of your looming questions, but if there is still anything you are concerned about, please leave a comment at the end of the post, and I'll be sure to answer.

1. What if I overcook the turkey, and the breast meat is dry? Slice it thin and soak it in warm chicken or turkey stock.
2. How do I get the skin beautiful golden brown? Lots of butter! Separate the skin and push butter directly over the meat then spread more butter over the outside of the skin. Also cover just the breast of th…

Partnership Opportunities

Since starting Krisztina Clifton Living, I've gained experience with a variety of collaborations including sponsored posts, banner ads, social media promotions, and editorials. I've been approached by big brands like Minted, MODCLOTH, Glossier, Serena & Lily and many more. I love to take an idea and turn it into a helpful article, or to take a product and build beautiful editorial content around it.

I've been blogging for over ten years, which for me has meant much more than just writing. I have done my own SEO, editing, graphic design, web design, branding, styling, and photography and wouldn't have it any other way.
 

My biggest passion is promoting small businesses, as I am a small business owner myself and have played the roll of both shop owner and publisher, with additional experience in SEO and online marketing. I believe that combined experience provides my sponsors with the total package. For smaller brands who don't have their own social media managers or marketing firms, for example, I play the roll of product promotion in every aspect necessary. From content creation to SEO to social media promotion, I'd be happy to help promote your shop, product, or giveaway.

First, let me fill you in on my core readers, because the best promotion begins with picking the right audience for your brand!

On both social media and krisztinaclifton.com, my largest group of readers are female ages 25-35. The Krisztina Clifton reader is a stylish and modern woman who likes to keep up with the trends. Her top interests include fashion, beauty, home decor, and cooking. The holidays are without a doubt the time that my readers are online and shopping most often! Here is a screenshot of the Pinterest categories my core readers are most engaged in...

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Current Sponsored Opportunities at Krisztina Clifton Living Include:
  • sponsored article
  • Intagram post
  • Pinterest promotion
  • banner advertising 
*Paid sponsored articles include added promotion across all social media platforms and can include anything from a giveaway to a product review or an editorial article. Product reviews include the same, in addition to a Youtube video review.

FAQ's...

Do you trade product for post? I occasionally accept product for post without compensation, so just ask if you're interested.

Do you need a sample product in order to promote my brand? I do require a full-size sample product if I need one for review purposes. I do not however, require a sample item for sponsored editorial articles as long as the sponsor provides media for the article.

Do I have permission to use your photos? In the event that a brand provides a sample product, I love to take beautiful images to help promote their brand. Sponsors are free to use these for non-commercial purposes and are encouraged to use them on social media. For permission to use them for commercial purposes, email me for rates.

Do you have stats on how much traffic you have driven to a sponsor's site? I do not track that information (that would be quite a lot to keep track of), but I can say that from my experience promoting my own affiliate links and articles, I can see that I do have great deal of reader engagement. Otherwise I wouldn't feel right charging sponsors.

Do you have a guaranteed Return On Investment? I do not, and quite frankly, who does? I get this question a lot, but even Facebook and Twitter don't offer a ROI for their advertising platforms. I believe that the service I'm providing is worth just the branding and social media boost alone.

That being said, I do have firsthand experience with driving sales, because I generate them for myself through Amazon affiliate links. I can also see firsthand that my social media increases web traffic. Whenever I want to boost my own stats, for example, all I have to do is pin a link or Google+ an article, and I immediately see my page views go up!

I love to hear back from sponsors, particularly the Friday Finds and small business promos, that they have experienced a "dramatic increase in site traffic" and have had "sales pouring in" sometimes on the very same day their feature was posted.

Advertising Rates

The Friday Finds feature is just $25 per shop. It's where I suggest shops begin if they're interested in advertising with Krisztina Clifton Living, as it is a very affordable way for them to gauge if my readers are a great fit for their products. It's also an opportunity for me to see if the brand is a good fit for me! 

Other rates may vary, as I like to offer discounts to smaller brands, and editorials including my photography tend to cost a little more. You can see my portfolio here , and please contact me at krisztinaclifton@gmail.com if you are interested in working with Krisztina Clifton Living. If you aren't sure what would be best for your brand, I'm happy to make suggestions regarding content. Any other questions regarding a potential collaboration, just ask!

She will bring you more traffic to your shop / website! That's what makes her the best! 😁 Thank you so much!
