Marketing to Moms: The Flipside of Bad Blogger Relations - These Are a Few of My Favorite PR Firms

Last week, at this time, I was pretty annoyed and it wasn't about my kids, either. Still.  I decided to write a post about the onslaught of viral marketing to moms on the Internets and the lack of respect I've been feeling, as a blogger, lately.

My friend (and blogging mentor) Jenn (a.k.a. Mommy Needs Coffee) has a terrific post up, giving kudos to a PR firm that she feels, gets it and it got me thinking (as usual) perhaps I should focus on the flipside and share the good things I've seen with marketing to moms on the Internets.

Especially, since (according to www.bsmmedia.com) 71 percent of us now use the Internet to get product information and moms (like me) are going online to find opinions of...you guessed it...other moms, like me.

Here's a list of my favorite PR Firms (in alphabetical order) and review blog networks that I have personally worked with, who I feel understand the need for blogger relations and the brands that they represent:

This Full House Visits Campbell's Kitchen: Got Questions?

Remember this commercial?


Nuh-uh, me either.  Still, I used to love coming home after school and eating Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup and, like me, It's grown quite a bit, since then.

This week, I'm heading to the city of brotherly love (because, this Jersey mom knows, don't even think about calling it Philly!) I have the pleasure of being invited to visit Campbell Soup Company's headquarters in Camden, NJ (about an hour and a half drive from my own backyard, really) and tour Campbell's Kitchen, along with some of the coolest bloggers, I know:

Table4Five.net

ThisMamaCooks.com

MomAdvice.com

Busymom.net

Fromdatestodiapers.com

BecauseIsaidso.com

Momtothescreamingmasses.com

Momof3girls.net

Campbell's products are sold in 120 countries around the world and I was surprised to learn that they also distribute a lot of brands you'll find in my pantry, too - like Pace, Pepperidge Farm, Prego Spaghetti Sauce, Swanson broths and V8 beverages.

I'm taking my Flip camera (thank you, Suave) and, hopefully, will be able to catch a bird's eye view of the Campbell Soup Company.

In the meantime, please feel free to leave any questions, or comments, you'd like me to relay to the soup people and I'll be more than happy to serve as your Ambassador of Mmmm...Mmmm...well, you know.

Marketing to Moms & How NOT to Mess With A Blogger!

Look, it's no secret, I like getting stuff -- says so, right on my review blog -- but, what I especially like about blogging is finding out about stuff (whatever it is, I need, at the moment) connecting with others (like me) and then being able to share all the good stuff...with you guys ...FAST!

Yeah, sometimes I get invited to really cool events (seriously, even my real life friends were more than a little surprised to see pictures of me...in Hollywood) but, I've been doing this for almost 6 years now (blogging, I mean) and, whenever I get to do really cool stuff, I am very thankful for it.

The onslaught of viral marketing to moms on the Internets, not so much.

Old House, Has Good Bones

Nest

It was a rundown cape, on a rather large piece of property choked by over a dozen trees.  I still remember that first day; my father unlocking the front door and being surprised to find the stray dog, the previous tenants had left behind, still alive.

Then, the pipes froze, my father forced open the cellar door, the entire front wall caved in and I don't know who cried more - me, my brother or my parents.

Still, my twin brother and I were 12-years-old, sharing the same bedroom and my parents couldn't live with my grandmother's abusive husband...one...minute...longer.

Flip-Worthy Moments: Mommy said the "D" word!

Today's blog post is brought to you by OurBlubHer Overhaul & inspired by my 10-year-old son, who is totally wigging 'cause, "Mommy said the "d" word!"


Next week:  Building your child's self-esteem, by showing a total lack thereof, how I hate my teeth and still wish that my parents would have at least tried to consider selling my twin brother -- I only needed one set of braces...seriously!

But, wait there's more Flip-Worthy Moments and plenty of dork-factor to go around the Internets and back again.
