If you would like your product *considered for a review or partner for a sponsored post or social media blast, then keep reading!

So, you are thinking of Advertising with us, and want to know the specifics? Well then, you have come to the right page! Here's how things happen around here in crazy town on First Time Mom and Dad...

We allow no more than TWO product reviews/sponsored posts a week to maintain a balance between great content and products. To maintain this balance, we are VERY selective about the products/services we choose to highlight each week. That being said, this is not about the most expensive products, but rather we are looking for cool, different, and parent game-changer products. If you think your product or service has what it takes to make the cut, please review our guidelines to ensure that we are a great fit.    

Product Review Policy:

·     I care about my readers first and foremost, I will only post my honest opinion. If your product sucks, I will tell the world. 

·     I cannot be bribed, so don't bother contacting me if that is what it takes to get a good review. 

·     No sample sizes or production samples accepted. I need the real deal, keep your prototypes for the Shark Tank.

·     I WILL NOT send the product back after review.  

·     I will not pay or compensate you for any step of the review process, including shipping, subscriptions or any other expenses necessary for the review.

·     All product and service reviews will be published within 1-3 weeks of receiving the product/service. If your review is time sensitive, please let me know so we can work something out.

 Contact us at: firsttimemomanddad(@)gmail (DOT) com to discuss your specific needs.

A few of the brands we work with...

Blog Conference Ambassador:

Need an incredibly outgoing, and for the most part well-behaved, former Advertising Executive who knows the conference ropes in-and-out to represent your company at an upcoming conference? Email me to discuss sponsorship opportunities at firsttimemomanddad @ gmail (DOT) com.

I promise I will behave.
For this reason, he is not available for conferences.
Unless you want a wild Crocodile Dundee drunk on scotch and PBR representing your company.
Of course, if the conference is in Australia he is available, because then he will fit right in.

Giveaway Policy:

Offering a product/service giveaway is a great way to engage readers with your product and further brand recognition.  If you are interested in offering a giveaway only, without a review, contact me for fee rates.  You will be responsible for all shipping costs.

·     Giveaways run for 1-4 weeks. If the giveaway is time sensitive, let me know. Once the giveaway ends, I will contact the winner(s) for shipping information. I will contact you for prize fulfillment within 7 days of the end of the giveaway.

·     You must ship prizes directly to the winner(s). NO exceptions. Do not ship prizes to me with the review product for any reason. I will not ship prizes to winners. Please ship prizes within 4 weeks of the end of the giveaway.

·     Do to FTC guidelines, NO extra/bonus/optional entries can be offered to an entrant for making a purchase of any kind.

NOTE: Due to Facebook Promotion guidelines, page 'likes' cannot be requested for entry. Nor can you offer extra/bonus/optional for, or ask entrants to, "like" a photo, upload a photo to your wall, or comment on your wall or photos. Basically, all I can do is ask them to 'visit' a page. 

Contact us with any inquiries at: Firsttimemomanddad@  

Disclosures-Terms & Condition:

Giveaway Rules:

·     All giveaways are open to US residents only, unless otherwise stated. 

·     The winning entry will be checked for validity. If the entrant does not qualify for any reason, or did not follow the rules, I will re-draw a new winner. 

·     Only one entrant per household/IP address is allowed. The winner has 48 hours to respond to my email or I reserve the right to declare a new winner.

·     The sponsor will be contacted once I receive the winner's information for prize fulfillment.

Prize Fulfillment:
Prizes will be sent directly from the giveaway sponsor, unless otherwise stated in the giveaway.  If the prize has not been received within 6 weeks from the end date of the giveaway, please contact me. I will contact the sponsor to try and resolve this. However, I will not be held responsible for any winner not receiving their prize for any reason. But, take heart, if they screw you over I will write a POST making them very sorry.

All policies are subject to change at any time without notice.
