PR & Advertising

AmateurParenting.com is PR and advertising friendly!

Information for Readers

AmateurParenting.com and our writers receive compensation in a variety of ways:

  • Free products for reviews
  • Commissions on affiliate products and services
  • Text and display advertising
  • Sponsored posts

Assume that all Amazon.com links are affiliate links. Any other affiliate links will be labeled as such with an announcement at the beginning and/or end of the post if it’s not already obvious in some other way. Please note that special offers and discounts are almost always affiliate links. We actively promote the following brands as affiliates/ambassadors/etc.: SELF Journal, Generation Mindful (PeaceMakers), 73threads, Thirty-One, Origami Owl, Herbalife, SKORA, and others.

Affiliate income helps to offset blog hosting costs and other related expenses. And if there’s any left after that, well, it’s nice to have a few extra bucks every now and then for coffee. Or wine. Whatever.

Anyway, we will always tell you if we received a product for free, but just because we review it doesn’t mean someone gave it to us — sometimes we just like to write about stuff we buy for ourselves. We always share our honest opinions, even if we’re paid or otherwise compensated to write about a specific product.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely our own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified. Do your own research before making any major buying or product use decisions.

We do not advertise or review any products, services, or sites, that promote illegal activities, pornography, violence, discrimination, political parties or candidates, dating/affairs, or other topics and activities at our sole discretion.

Information for Advertisers

Reviews

We might be newbie parents, but we’re experienced product reviewers — and we’re eager to test out your product. We offer unbiased product reviews and giveaways of virtually any product for moms, dads, babies, toddlers, and older children. We’re moms and dads, but we’re also people with diverse interests, so we’re happy to consider products that aren’t related to parenting.

Please contact us if you have a product you would like us to review. We are particularly interested in children’s toys and clothing, baby carriers, baby and toddler care supplies, personal care items for men and women, household products, food, and products for dogs and cats. Once you let us know you’d like a review, we’ll match your product with the right member of the AmateurParenting.com team and tell you where to send it. Shipping is at your expense. We do not return review products. We review only full-size, final-version products (no “sample” sizes or “trial” versions).

We promise to give your product or service a fair shake when we write about it — meaning we’ll share the pros and cons, the ups and downs. If it’s awesome, we’ll say so. If it sucks, we’ll say that, too.

We reserve the right to decline to review any product for any reason at our discretion. Agreeing to consider a product for review is not a guarantee that we will review it.

Contact us about reviewing your product.

Giveaways

We are happy to host giveaways of your product to our readers! Please contact us to discuss the nature of your giveaway. You must cover shipping for the product to the winner — we don’t play the middleman on review prizes. Please specify whether you wish the giveaway to cover the continental US, the entire US, the US and Canada, or worldwide. You are solely responsible for getting the prize to the winner once we give you his or her contact information.
