Hello Everyone,

The above-mentioned events are all above and beyond our other normal movie reviews, restaurant reviews, and many other topics.

Since our inception in December 2011, we have had a total of 19,882 views so far and yes, we are definitely going to cross the 20,000 mark soon. The most number of views we had on 1 day is 1,007. Our average views per day currently stands at 128 and we are expecting the numbers to grow as the year goes by.

Well, what does all these facts and figures got to do with you?

If you have a product/event offering and you are looking for avenues to advertise your product/event, engaging bloggers like us can be a fantastic and terrific idea because the costs are relatively low as compared to traditional advertisement medias like your newspapers, radio, sms-es, magazines, televisions and etc. A simple advertisement on the local Straits Times can easily cost you a few thousand dollars while an online advertorial can easily cost you $2,000 per article per week.

So.. what are our advertising or marketing rates?

As of now, we are not charging a single cent for writing reviews, advertorials, and covers. For food reviews, we expect dining expenses to be covered. For movie and concert reviews, we expect to have complimentary seats. For covers on exhibitions that are arts-related [music, art, theatre and etc.] and events such as product launches and roadshows, we expect to have priority access. For product [health, electronics, clothing and etc.] and service reviews, we expect to have product trials and demonstrations.

Hence as you can see for yourself, it really doesn’t cost a great deal just to have an article published on our blog. However, we do have some precautions for you though; as we are an objective blog site, we are brutally honest with what we publish on our blog. This not only gives our readers/viewers a rather credible point of view from the consumers’ perspective but it would also allow for constructive feedback to be given by our readers/viewers so that you can improve your product and service offerings.

    Errrrr aren’t all those events listed above OMY Blog Club events? Those are not considered *invites* right? You should plug in your stats counter for people to track how many readers to have daily..

      Hi C,

      thank you for dropping by A Winsome Life. Yes, indeed the events listed in the first header are OMY Blog Club events. However, those are considered official invitations as they are exclusive to selected bloggers. In fact, there is a limited number of bloggers for every event invitation sent out by OMY. With regards to the stats counter, we don’t really find it necessary to put it up. In fact, in most of our correspondences with PR/Advertisement Companies, we would email them our detailed site stats and that alone is sufficient.

      Best Regards,
      Melvin Lee
