I Got an Offer

Last Update: April 25, 2019

No, not an offer to buy my site, but an offer to partner on social media and promotion. A company called Consumers Advocate emailed me to say they liked my pet health insurance review (where I had mentioned their recommendation) and asked if I would be interested in a trade. I put their link in my post and they share my post on social media.

They are not as large as the famous Consumer Reports that has been around for a long time but their company has 41 employees and they produce a great amount of high quality reports and reviews on various consumer products and services. I am adding links to their pet health insurance report (which I had used in my post anyway) and they will be sharing my post.

The person who contacted me said he showed my review to the other staff and they liked it. He said their social media person would be sharing my post and they would let me know when they did. I don't expect this to be a huge thing, but it is amazing to get such an offer! They said they would keep me in mind if they did future reports in my field.

Yay, for being found! That is a sure sign we are moving onwards and upwards! This is the first company with such breadth and scope to contact me and it is pretty exciting.

I spent hours cleaning and updating the post and added an internal link to a newer, relevent post as well as some more references. It felt good to make some progress! I have been meaning to go back and update old posts so this made it much easier to get started. I was spending a ton of time trying to figure out if Jaaxy or Ubersuggest was more accurate for some new keywords and was getting burned out prior to seeing the email from this company so it was a welcome change of pace.

Way to go Jessica, a real confidence booster, it can be so hard in the trenches some days, not knowing or second-guessing ourselves.

It can be so refreshing when someone else takes notice, all that hard work is not in vain.

I think that this is awesome, and the shape of things to come for you, a really good week at the office indeed.

Love this! You've been at it quite a while now Jessica and this just goes to prove that good things are possible just by sticking it out through the lean times. I'm guessing this is only the beginning.

There's a little church that I often pass while walking my dog. They change the message on the marquis about once every two weeks. I'm not very religious, but I must concur with the message on the sign today... It read, "God can move mountains but sometimes he does it a shovelful at a time."

Thanks Hal! I like that quote too. I am also not very religious but love the saying that God helps those that help themselves. If you want something you have to DO something to get it. Don't expect it to just be given to you.

Yes, I agree. There are many doors to peek inside as we move along here and learn more and get access to more and more opportunities. We are lucky to be here but we have to work and be patient to benefit from them.

You are so flattering comparing me with Grace! I am not worthy! :)

Thank you Debs!
Jessica

Yes, thank you Nichola. I was thinking about that and want to make sure they don't just post one tweet and that is the end of it whereas their links will be on my post forever!

Thank you! I never heard back from the last person (the editor of another cat site) when I sent her my standards for using their guest post per her request. I guess she was not agreeable to my terms (that I can edit them for SEO etc). Oh well!
