Work With Me

Over the years I’ve worked with brands in many ways, and I’m always open to suggestions, collaborative campaigns and championing products I truly believe in. I love hearing from people wanting to work with me, and currently offer the following services:

Work with me

PRODUCT REVIEWS

I am happy to review things on my blog that I have a genuine interest in. I predominantly write about dating, sex, lifestyle and relationships, but will often write gift guides and date night outfit inspiration here on Better Date Than Never. I love lipstick, perfume, candles, shoes and boots, spa days, romantic getaways and Michael Buble. Take the time to see if there’s a real possibility that I would be able to feature your product or service here on my blog, and if it’s relevant to my audience.

The whole point of a review on a blog like Better Date Than Never is to try and recommend products after using them. It’s impossible to tell what a product is like from an image, so a physical product would be expected in exchange for an honest review.

Please don’t be upset if I don’t feature every product your brand sends me. I’m lucky enough to be sent lots of lovely things each month, and would never have the time to write about all of them. I will always feature those items I like the most and feel would be well received by my readers before any others.

SAMPLE POLICY: Please note that any samples sent to me are for consideration only and do not guarantee a feature or mention on betterdatethannever.uk.

BRAND AMBASSADOR ROLES & BRAND PARTNERSHIPS

I am more than happy to discuss brand ambassador roles. As a brand ambassador, I would work on a monthly basis with a brand to determine their needs for the month ahead. whether that be articles, commissioned pieces, social media promotion etc. I only ever work with brands I’m excited about, and truly believe in, and I would ensure that there would be absolutely no conflict of interest between any brands I represent. As each ambassador role is different, please contact me via email to discuss in more detail.

Please note that I do not offer free guest posts or ‘reciprocal links’ on my blog. I’ve spent a lot of time and effort to get Better Date Than Never to where it is today, and even quit my day job as a customer service manager in order to write full-time. A link back from your website doesn’t pay the bills, no matter how big your following is!

If you’re keen to work with me or have any questions about my services, please feel free to email me at louise@betterdatethannever.uk. Thanks!
