PR/Review Requests

I welcome requests from PR people, or anyone wanting to promote their website, product or service.

I am open to reviewing family friendly products on Tara's View of the World or on Tara's View on Books. I have two sons (ages 8 & 9), one daughter (age 5) and one husband who make excellent product testers. My eldest son has some special needs (high-functioning Autism & ADHD/ODD) so I am also able to review products for special needs children.

Here are a few examples of my reviews:

I am very digitally-connected and have extensive training and experience in the areas of Search Engine Optimization, Social Media and Online-Marketing. My "day job" is working as a social media manager and virtual assistant for various clients. I fully understand the importance of proper keywords, anchor text links and brand protection which makes me a key social influencer in this fast growing industry.

 Product Reviews / Giveaways
- I ask that the company send me one of the items for my personal use. This is the only way I can give an honest review. I will write the review in exchange for the item.  In addition to the review you may offer a like item for a giveaway. When possible, I request that the company send out the prize to the winner.

- I am willing to host most family-friendly giveaways. If you are not sending me a product to review then there is a charge to do a straight giveaway. Please email me for details.

Advertising- Rates for advertising on Tara's View of the World or Tara's View on Books vary. Rates depend on the size of ad you would like placed and where you would like it placed. Please contact me for more information.
