What Katy Said was started in 2014 and since then has grown so quickly, rising up through TOTs rankings, reaching the finals of the MAD Blog awards 2015 and winning 1st runner up in the Next Blogger Network Awards. I have been named one of the top 20 vlogging mums for 2016 and have just been announced as a finalist in the 2017 BiBs awards – so exciting! What started off as a means of sharing our life has grown into a business, one that I am ever so thankful for as it has brought so many amazing opportunities our way.
This is a family lifestyle blog, sharing all aspects of family life with focus on photography, family and motherhood. We have been so lucky to have some incredible opportunities through working with brands – something that I have to pinch myself daily about!
What Katy Said has grown very rapidly over the last 2 years, with my social media following going from zero to over 25’000.My reach is over 500K on Twitter alone and each of my accounts has new followers daily. I do believe though that it is engagement that counts and as you will see on my accounts, I have great interaction with my followers.
Why should you work with me?
I love to tell a story using photos- I was recently featured on TOTs for their Monthly Photography Roundup which was an honour. I love to showcase products as part of a meaningful post that will resonate with readers. I only work with brands who I feel really fit with me and my family, those that I can truly recommend to my readers. I have also just been listed as one of the top 10 Baby & Toddler Blogs as well as one of the top 10 Baby & Parenting blogs in the UK for 2016.
Brands I have worked with so far…
I have worked with a number of brands over the past couple of years, collaborating with Cath Kidston, Laura Ashley, Mamas & Papas, Next, Eurocamp and many more. I write about fashion, home, travel and all that fits in with our lifestyle – do check out my collaborations for an idea of how we can work together.
I have also guest posted on other blogs, in the UK and in the US, which is a real honour. I am also lucky enough to have done freelance work for other companies, writing content for their websites. Writing is my passion and so I am thankful every day to be able to have this as my career now.
A new string to my bow is writing for magazines – something I really enjoy! Check out my latest piece here for Mums Magazine.
How can we work together?
♦ Be a Brand Ambassador– I am currently an ambassador for Graco. Ambassadorships are a great way of showing a support to a brand, sharing a journey as a family throughout the year.
♦ Product reviews– We love to offer our opinion but will only review items if they fit naturally with our family lifestyle.
♦ Press trips/ family trips – We have been on lots of days out and family holidays, sharing our experience with others to inspire their next booking!
♦ Video content – check out my Youtube channel to see some of the work we have done with brands. I adore making videos and am building up a dedicated following with weekly weekend vlogs as well as dedicated brand work.
♦ Sponsored content– I am happy to write sponsored content for brands I feel fit within the natural feel of my blog.
♦ Live social media coverage – I have hosted a number of Twitter parties in the past and always get great interaction. Instagram is ever evolving and my account is growing every day – if you would like to collaborate then I am happy to post a naturally posed shot.
♦ Advertising – With thousands of monthly visitors, let my sidebar work for you!
♦ Copywriting– I am happy to write copy for your site. Writing is my passion and I love to create new content.
♦ Social media management – Let me build your following!
