We worked with Authentic Simplicity to promote our product and our new blog. She was not only able to bring us quite a bit of web traffic to our blog but she also helped us boost our social media influence/following, and the majority of those new followers still follow us today. Thank you Authentic Simplicity for making our relationship well worth our investment.

Limit of 3 per person/company. 20 spots available. In my experience, Facebook links boast the highest rate of click-throughs, so this is a GREAT deal, considering I have a potential reach of almost 9,000 on Facebook alone (according to FB stats).

Post Footer Link – $5 for 1 Week

4 available. This would appear at the bottom of each new post written during the span of 1 week. Many people see this as they scroll down to read the comments.

Greet Box Message – $10 for 1 Week

Sponsored Post – $30 for 1 Post

Sponsored posts are written by me, with consideration given to the content and links you desire. Guest sponsored posts are also an option, upon approval (i.e., I will not post a guest post unless it meets my criteria for content and quality.).
