You will reach precisely the audience that is interested in flower arranging and Ikebana.
What do we actually do for a blog post?
Questions and comments we regularly receive: “Say, what do you have to do for a blog post?” “Making a blog post isn’t a lot of work, isn’t it?”
Well … you should be mistaken. Making a good blog post is easier said than done. First, I start with research, where I look at your brand or topic in the light of flower design. As my quality standards are high, I like to use self-taken pictures (unless the submitted photos meet my standards), and that’s why I sometimes have to travel. After taking my pictures, they are processed to show my top quality.
For our research, I sometimes buy, try or taste the products I write about. If these products are not sponsored, these costs are additional for me. After research, the blog I write and rewrite the blog post.
To tell something sensible about your brand and its context with our blog, I need to stay informed of the latest trends, tools, and material. For that I visit fairs and exhibitions, I travel and attend lectures, lessons, and symposia. Ikebana Beautiful treats your brand or company, seriously and with vision. Naturally, there is a price tag for this way of approach.
Connecting with flower lovers…
Sponsored blog posts are therefore not comparable to an ad in the sidebar of Ikebana Beautiful.
Hence, the price tag is different. In the current scope of our website, Facebook page, and newsletters, we ask the amount:
Current Pricing For Blog Features + Social Media Promotion:
- Five (5) Instagram shoutouts | € 49, – excl. VAT.
- One (1) sponsored blog post, five (5) Instagram shoutouts, five (5) Facebook Shoutouts. | € 249, – excl. VAT.
- One (1) sponsored blog post with YouTube video, five (5) Instagram shoutouts, five (5) Facebook Shoutouts. | € 349, – excl. VAT.
As our reach exceeds, these amounts will be adjusted.
One of the clients of a cooperation about the featured video:
I was idly Facebooking this wet and dreary afternoon and watched a video by Ikebana Beautiful which was really good. For several reasons. The voice of the person in the video is mesmerising, her arrangements are inspiring and her Helen Round apron is fabulous! Have you seen the video?
How does it work?
I write the blog post in English. I take our my visual material unless the supplied images fit very well with Ikebana Beautiful.
In the majority of blog posts, I will create links to flowers or flower arrangings, tools and techniques on my blog.
After approval by the client, the blog post will be posted on www.ikebanabeautiful.com and (or) announced via Social Media channels as agreed.
The blog post is also included in our two-weekly newsletter, which gives extra attention to the blog post.
