brands that have worked with penny golightly

OPTION 1: Work with this site

There are several opportunities for your company, non-profit or client to work with this site:

1. Review opportunities for suitable products or services
2. Provision of competition prizes
3. Sponsored posts with content always written here in-house
4. Other advertising such as banner ads
5. Collaborations such as product or event creation

Find out more about these options below:

1) Review opportunities for products or services

I’m always on the lookout for interesting items and services to review. Here are some ideas that should be helpful if you’re thinking about working with this site:

  • Luxury for less: offers on high end brands, and so on
  • Value for money: products and services that perform well
  • High street products that are as good as designer products
  • Non-fiction books for review purposes
  • Treats that cost £10 or less: food, drink, cosmetics, design, etc

I can’t guarantee that I’ll review every single item or service sent to me for consideration. Reviews must also be conducted in a fair and unbiased manner, with no interference from the promoter.

2) Competition prizes

Another excellent way to gain exposure on this site is by providing a desirable competition prize. This will be publicised in the weekly site newsletter, and via social media (for example, @PennyGolightly currently has over 7,500 Twitter followers and high levels of social media engagement).

3) Sponsored posts (content written here in-house)

I write the copy for all sponsored posts featured on PennyGolightly.com, and insist on editorial freedom to ensure everything conforms to house style and contains information that’s useful for the site’s users. As a result, the sponsored posts on this site are popular and well read.

For the latest examples of sponsored posts, visit the Promotions section.

4) Other advertising such as banner ads

These types of advertising could potentially be made available to individual companies or a good quality ad network, as long as they’re tasteful and essential to the plot.

5) Collaborations: collections, curation, events & more

If you really want to get creative, come on, let me know. Challenges accepted! I can curate your sale, put together a capsule collection of your best products, or collaborate with you on a new product or range, for example.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: I never work with payday loans companies or commercial businesses that focus primarily on debt consolidation. In addition, gambling, betting, lotteries, tobacco and related products, or anything illegal will not be considered.

GUEST POSTS: Please note that there are currently no opportunities for outside contributors to add their own guest posts on this site, unless it’s for charity.

TRANSPARENCY: This site operates a full disclosure policy for sponsored posts, review items, advertising and affiliate links, and so on. Honesty and transparency is the best policy.
