Pr and Giveaway Guidelines

Close To Home is PR friendly and loves to review products for our readers and spread the word about quality companies and products. We are a family of 5 and are always interested in new and exciting products! We have 3 children, ranging from 11 to 6.  We also own and cat and dog. I currently do not charge for product reviews, and expect to not be charged for the product I am reviewing!

Giveaways are the most effective way to get wide spread publicity and networking; however, reviews of your products are also recommended. I typically will not do a giveaway without an item to review; giveaways are a lot of work, without any compensation of my time.  When I review a product readers know how a product really works and future readers may also access this information in the future. This is also why I require a full size product to adequately test out the product. (samples or trial sizes will not be accepted) Coupon codes and free products with purchase are also popular and encourage readers to make purchases!  My minimim product value is $30.


Reviews and review giveaways are free on my blog. All giveaways are listed on 5-10 different sites for maximum promotion and visibility.  They can connect with you on Facebook and Twitter for extra entries.

In case of a negative review, I will contact you prior to posting, and you then have the option to decline the review.

If you are interested in having your product tested and reviewed you
can contact me at Cthdesigns@comcast.net

Thank you in advance for giving me the opportunity to work with you!
