HOW YOU CAN WORK WITH US
Sponsor A Post
We are pleased to endorse trusted companies and brands we believe in!
All posts promoting companies/brands/products are personally written by Ursula Carmona or HMC team members only. We take passion and pride in each and every post, and sponsored posts are no exception! Each post is created to be informative, inspirational, and visually stunning.
Each sponsored post includes:
Valuable information (often in the form of tutorials and how-to’s)
Highly pinnable, original photographs
Personable stories that relate why we endorse your company
Two no-follow links to your site/product
Up to three of your company’s social media channels at the foot of the post
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 [email protected] 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:

Sponsor A Speaking Event

Advertise On HMC
Sidebar ads available for purchase start at $500/month.
Available sizes are 300×250 and available units start below the search bar on Home Made by Carmona.
We already have an ad network we are happy with, but occasionally we will fill individual requests for a relevant special campaign. Ad campaign must be related to DIY, home decor, or organization in order to be considered.
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 [email protected] with the subject line “free gift, no strings”.
