Sponsor A Video

Often a tutorial is best viewed via video. Videos can be 2-4 minute “Quick Tip” tutorials, or 5-8 minute long tutorials. These are found embeded in a relevant post or a standalone post on the blog, as well as on our public YouTube channel.

Send information about your company and product to homemadebycarmona@gmail.com for consideration. There are more than one sponsorship type for videos, and we are happy to share details once we have approved your company/product.

Here is an example of a product driven sponsored video:

Giveaways & Product Reviews

Giveaways are a great way to put your amazing ( DIY/decor/organizing relevant) product out there. You may inquire about sponsored posts and include a giveaway with it, or you may request a stand-alone giveaway (at no cost to you beside product/gift card and shipping) to promote your company and product.

Stand-Alone Giveaways: When not included in a sponsored post, a giveaway is hosted on the Maker Hub of our website. All promotion is done via social media, not a post. Email for additional information and benefits.
Product Reviews: Here at HMC we do not review products, we do sponsored posts, and sometimes we just write about products we have used and loved when relevant! If you would like to send us a product to try out, we make no guarantees or promises to mention it, or use it in a post. You are still free to do so…after all, if your product really is amazing this is the perfect “shoe in” with us to talk business, or maybe to begin a lifelong love of your brand. 😉 Who knows? Email us at homemadebycarmona@gmail.com with the subject line “free gift, no strings”.
