Would you like to collaborate?

As a social influencer, it is my pleasure to engage an audience and share my expertise and enthusiasm for travel, restaurants, delicious food, unique products and midlife experiences.

As a brand ambassador, I offer a truthful, infectious energy and upbeat personality to each promotion and will support each campaign through all of my social media channels.

I am available for brand ambassadorships, press trips, social media consulting, and editorial writing contracts. I look for particular alignment with my partners, to make sure that you, me and our audience will all benefit from our collaboration.

Consulting with Bloggers

I have expanded my world by working on a one on one basis with new bloggers and with bloggers who are looking for a fresh perspective. We discuss what is working well and what may need some adjusting. After 5 years of blogging experience, I have a lot to offer. I grew this blog audience person by person hoping to inform, inspire and connect. I love it. I really love it.

I offer an introductory package that includes a one hour planning session along with a 30 minute follow up for $165.00 We can then meet (virtually) on an as-needed basis.

Here are a couple of recommendations from two of my happy clients:

“Okay, all! I had a one-on-one mentor/coaching session with Suzanne and it was the highlight of the conference for me. You gave generously and yet practically and specifically to where I am right now in growing my travel business.” 

“So glad I jumped in and said “Yes” to Suzanne.” 

“More to come.”

Linda Higdon ~ Global Heart Journeys

“Working with Suzanne as a mentor/consultant on my travel blog has not only helped me further my goals, it has been a pleasure. From our initial conversation, I found her to be articulate, knowledgeable, professional and personable. She does her homework specific to my blog and is genuine and forthright with critique and then practical suggestions and insights.”

 “My blog is relatively new so I anticipate and look forward to consulting with Suzanne much more in the future!”

Brand Collaborations

Who knows this audience better than someone who is smack in the middle of living it?

People in midlife are ready to make some new purchases and enjoy the process. This age group is in-flux because their kids are just leaving the nest and they have more time and more disposable income. Some are changing direction and many are checking out new possibilities. As savvy buyers, they (me too) usually make decisions based upon personal recommendations from friends and family and are not usually persuaded by traditional marketing. Blogs are a BIG resource and almost everyone does their homework before making a purchase, planning a trip or even going to a new restaurant.

Let me help you reach this audience effectively!
