Content Marketing and Product Reviews
What You Get: We offer several approaches to content marketing.
1. (Recommended) Write an advertorial, unique content related to your product, service, or website based on the author's personal travel experiences. These posts are much better received by regular readers, and more likely to be shared via social media as well. Click here for an example.
2. Write an honest review of your product, service, or website. We will test it (or in the case of a site, visit it) and write a review based on our experience. Click here for an example.
3. Write an informational post about your product, service, or website. In this case, we won't use the word “review,” and the post would be strictly informational.
4. Promote a contest. Click here for an example.
Posts average 800 words in length but can be 1,000 or more words depending on the topic. They will be sent out via RSS and exist permanently in the archives to benefit from search engine traffic. Sharing via social media is at the publisher's discretion — guaranteed promotion via social media costs extra.
Ethics: In keeping with FTC guidelines in the United States, and a commitment to transparency with readers, we will always include a disclosure for our readers. This is not negotiable.
Payment: Preferred payment is via PayPal. You can use your PayPal balance, your credit card or your bank account (in some countries). You do not need a PayPal account to make payment via credit card.
If your organization does not use PayPal, then domestic and international wire transfers will be accepted. However, the payor is responsible for an additional $15 bank fee on international transfers. Paper checks are also accepted.
To request content marketing, please email dave(at)gobackpacking.com with details.
