Want to start working with brands as a blogger to bring in more revenue? Not sure where to start? I’m here to help.

If you’re looking to work with brands and increase revenue, you don’t want your first sponsored post to fail miserably. Let’s be clear – you want a rock solid, blow-them-away type post so that you can show it off to all your dream brands and land tons of great jobs.

We can make that happen together. I’ve worked with brands such as KitchenAid, Le Creuset, Fisher-Price, King Arthur Flour, KRAFT, and countless more. Many of these brands I successfully reached out to myself, sending pitches and talking them into working with little ol’ me.

Every year that my blog has been in existence, I’ve more than tripled my income — the majority of that income comes from my work with brands (72% of my income came from working with brands in 2014 – and that’s averaging less than one sponsored post per week!). In 2014, I earned an amount equivalent to what I was making as a full-time Doctor of Physical Therapy — a seven and a half year degree!

You don’t have to have sky-high traffic to land your dream job working with your favorite brand. All you need is a little (professional) persistence, a little guidance, and lots of great energy and passion.

You bring the energy and passion, I’ll bring the experience, guidance and some great ideas customized to you and your blog. I just so happen to have a little energy and passion myself.

Or perhaps you’re looking to start a food blog but you’re not really sure where to begin? Even if you already launched a food blog — these packages could be extremely beneficial to you!

First impressions are everything. If a visitor comes to your site and things are a mess and you only have one post? Unless they’re your mom, they probably won’t be visiting again. I’ll give you the building blocks and the basic knowledge you need to create a professional and attractive food blog.

I’ve made mistakes along the way so you don’t have to. I’ll spend time thinking about your goals for your site and we’ll get you started — strong, efficient and fast.
