Brand Collaborations

One of the ways I keep the wifi on at is by partnering with brands I believe in to create great content.  I am extremely selective about the brands I work with, and retain editorial control of all content I publish across all platforms. I don’t really publish stories written by brands, and I don’t allow brands to edit my content. It’s a unique stance I’ve taken, and it means I say “no” a lot, but from the start I’ve applied the same high standards of quality to my collaborations as I do to all my content. And I’ll always let you know if content is part of a collaboration.

How can I tell what’s part of a paid collaboration?

Transparency matters. I stand behind everything I publish — paid or otherwise — and without collaborations I wouldn’t be able to make some of my favorite content. So, I have the following elements in place to make sure you can easily tell when content is part of a paid collaboration:

Collaborations on are identified by:

–  a “Collaborations” or “Sponsored by” heading at the top of the story, above the title

– Italicized copy at the beginning of the story stating that it is part of a collaboration, naming the brand partner, and linking to this page

– Inclusion in the “Collaborations” category within the site

– “Collaboration” or “Sponsored By” above the author’s name in the homepage and category feeds

Collaborations on Social are identified by:

– The Paid Partnership disclaimer on Facebook and Instagram (example here and here) which states that a post is paid above the image

– #CintrenaBrandPartner dedicated hashtag with brand partner tagged

Affiliate Partners

My shoppable picks are linked through various affiliate programs, so if you ultimately decide to purchase a product or service mentioned on, I receive compensation from that purchase (thank you!). I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites. I also work with ShopStyle Collective and ShareASale, and will update this section regularly as I grow my affiliate network to give you the best recommendations!
