Sponsor a Giveaway

Sponsoring a giveaway at All Things Dog Blog is generally tied into a related post. If you offer a giveaway of multiple items, we'll write a post that suits your product and get you some free promotional excitement; we like to call it Internet whoopla! Here's what you'll get out of this opportunity:
  • A full length post  will use your product or service as an integral part of the information, including photos. 
  • A giveaway announcement will require readers to enter by interacting with us in some way, giving you the most promotional exposure. These entry options may include commenting on our post, submitting a pet photo, visiting your website or Facebook page, or Tweeting about the giveaway. 
  • Your giveaway will be listed on numerous sweepstakes/giveaway sites, where pet owners go to learn about free products they may win. This will get you additional exposure.
  • Your giveaway post will be promoted with all the ammunition I have in my arsenal.
  • We will often encourage readers to "Like" your Facebook page or follow you on Twitter, as well as linking to your site at least once in the post.
  • Most giveaway posts include multiple links to various pages on your website, to make it simple and quick for readers to find the information they need about your product or service.
  • A followup post, generally one to two weeks later, that will award the prizes, gives you an additional opportunity to be mentioned, including photography and comments about the readers' reactions to the giveaway.
If you are interested in providing a giveaway for promotional reasons, please contact us at with:
  • the product or service (usually by coupon or coupon code) that you are interested in providing,
  • the quantity you plan to make available,
  • information about your product or service,
  • and any questions you have.
We'll be back in touch quickly with further details. Now, would you like to take it one step beyond a giveaway? What about a product review? Here's more....

Product Reviews by All Things Dog Blog

Who are we? All Things Dog Blog is a site that focuses on problem-solving tips and helpful information for dog owners, finding ways to make life with Fido a little bit easier and much more fun, while also leaning a bit toward the green and organic side--all natural. At All Things Dog Blog, our dogs serve as our product testers, exercise partners, recipe development assistants, and photo models. We also enjoy an occasional inspirational book review or a product that is just plain fun. Just to be clear, there is no charge for a product review.

Because All Things Dog Blog is all about helping Fido’s family live happier, healthier lives, we offer a team of dog trainers to answer our readers’ questions, as well as a holistic veterinarian to answer health-related queries. These are popular features that have helped us gain valuable respect among our peers, and you will reap the benefits of this.

What will our review cover? The goal is to highlight the positive aspects of your pet product, pet owner product, or service, with particular emphasis on the natural, healthy ways it can help families share their home with a dog more harmoniously. Multiple photos of your product or service will be included in the review.

More importantly, purchase outlets for your products will be clearly detailed with links to websites and order pages that you select.

Your review will appear in the main column at, and you will be notified on the day it goes live, with a title and link. We will also Tweet your article and post it to the All Things Dog Blog Facebook page, where our followers and readers enjoy leaving their comments and ideas.

If you are interested in getting more out of your review, a product giveaway is recommended. Free products are a big draw to building additional traffic to the review, making the most of your product review. This translates into more pass through traffic to your site or your retailers' sites, as well. 

Why should you consider using product reviews?  All Things Dog Blog has been a Top 100 Pet Blog with Technorati, (the blogosphere’s primary ranking and search engine) for about a year and a half. As of this writing, we are ranked #4 out of more than 2800 registered Pet Blogs. With the authority we have gained through this position, and the branding success of our dogs, our blog is becoming increasingly well followed. Recent months have seen 18,000+ visitors, and that means more prospective customers or clients for your product or service.

Finally, with a loyal readership, our average readers stay on site up to 3 minutes or longer, reading all of the day’s postings. In the blogging world, this precious time is like Gold, highly sought-after and extremely valuable.

How will we proceed with your review? Now comes the fun part, so strap on your seatbelt. In order to get the most exposure for your product or service, we run many of our product reviews on our busiest days and often link up to online blog events that encourage sharing of such posts. This allows visitors to easily navigate from site to site, increasing the number of visits. You do the math; we’ll focus on telling our readers about your best features.

By offering free products as prizes, we’ll get you a two-fer. One week after the product review, we will announce the winners, once again highlighting your product and related websites. Readers will return to see if they were one of the lucky winners, giving you yet another chance to encourage them to hit the link to your sales page. Facebook and Twitter get another round of posts and chatter as well.

Sample reviews: A page of sample reviews can be located at this link, organized by category to help you find similar products to get a good idea of how your review may be handled.
    How can you make the promo last longer? Some of the companies we review like to leave us with a supply of additional samples to give away later, keeping the momentum going—a.k.a. more exposure! To thank you for these gifts, we will place a free, limited-time button ad (125 x 125) for your product or service in our sidebar. The period of time and type of ad will be discussed when your offer of product is made. This opportunity has one additional benefit. You get to test the waters in advertising with us, without laying out any precious cash. It’s a Win-Win.

    If you’re interested in a product or service review with All Things Dog Blog, or just want to discuss a good old-fashioned ad, please contact me, Carrie Boyko, at Speaking of advertising, let's hit that next:

    Advertising with All Things Dog Blog 

    Buttons and banners can be placed in a variety of sizes, positions and options to suit every budget. The best place to start is by dropping us a line at with information on what you'd like to accomplish, and what your budget is for this goal. We'll work with you to come up with something within your parameters.

    Banner ads

    Possible locations, depending on availability, include: 

    The Great Dane: full sized header banner beneath the blog header
    The Golden Retriever: To salute the beginning of every blog page, this will be at the top of the main posts column.
    The Basset Hound: Placed in the footer at the bottom of the blog, full width and low like a Basset Hound.
    The Springer Spaniel: The opposite of the Golden Retriever, this ad will cap off the bottom of the posts column.
    The Junk Yard Dog often lies out of site, until visitors appear. This is what I call the in-post banner ad because it is only seen when a reader visits this carefully-chosen post.
    The Papillon: A banner shaped ad in the sidebar can bring more attention than a link, while still using little sidebar space, meaning less cost to you.

    If you are interested in banner ads, please write to me at with your advertising budget and time frame. We will get back to you with available placements and costs that will help you meet your goals.

    Sponsor a Twitter Party or Other Themed Event to Promote Your Product:

    Twitter Parties are one of the newest ways that you can get the word out about your product, service or cause, to massive numbers of Twitter users. A well-planned, themed Twitter Party will include 2 co-hosts along with myself, coordinating planned conversations, product giveaways designed to build excitement over your product while attracting participants, and discussions between participants and a guest expert.

    Twitter party conversation can also be designed to get information out in small blurbs that fit into single tweets. Often this makes a great way to help those new to your concept to understand it more thoroughly--small amounts at a time.

    Themed Blog Hop Events bring large numbers of blogs together with their links all located on one another's pages. This exposure for your brand can be huge, as all readers/visitors to each of the participating blogs will be able to see and access our event planned on your behalf. Once again prizes serve as a lure to participants, and information on your product or service will be made available through our blog post and any coordinated events such as Twitter Parties or Scavenger Hunts.

    Note that to maximize the value to your brand, a combination of these events is often your best approach. Your budget, however, is where we must start to create a plan for you. We would need to understand your goals in order to present a plan that works. Fees for these promotional events vary widely based on your goals, anticipated participation, prizes offered, experts required, event design complexity, and other details. Please contact me at with as much detail as possible. I will be in touch soon.

    I reserve the right to approve or disprove of any ad copy or image that does not align itself with my blog's themes or values. Product reviews that do not go well may be passed on. You will be notified if this happens. The information in the above sections may be changed without notice. Current advertisers will not be affected by rate changes during a commitment period.

    All Things Dog Blog will fully disclose all free products and will only publish our own opinions about products. We do not take compensation for product reviews. We may consider a paid insertion,  when written by the provider and agreed upon by us 100%.
