Ways We Can Work Together
Sponsored posts can be written by us or by you. Any content on The Thrifty Issue must be relevant to our audience, 95% of which is Australian mums aged 25 to 45 who are interested in ways to make and save money. We have almost 11,000 followers on Facebook, a highly engaged Instagram following and as of January, 2018 we have around 70,000 views a month to the site. A full media kit is available upon request.
We do not accept ‘guest posts’ in the form of businesses aiming to get links. We do accept sponsored posts which adhere to Australian law and Google’s conditions for sponsored content. All our paid links are no follow and will be marked as sponsored with a disclosure.
Payment for all work is required prior to work commencing.
Product Reviews And Giveaways
Our audience loves freebies, discounts and giveaways. We are happy to review products, run giveaways or offer exclusive discount codes to our readers. We do have some terms and conditions around the products and reviews though and want to ensure everyone benefits from sharing your product/service with our readers.
As our readers are mostly Australian mums aged 25 to 45 products that would appeal to them, especially ones which can save them money or time are most popular.
Our staff at The Thrifty Issue have kids ranging from 5 to 10 years old. We are based around the country, though the owner of The Thrifty Issue is based in Melbourne with 9 and 10 year old daughters.
If you would like to discuss product reviews, giveaways or discounts for our readers, email [email protected] or you can post product to the following address:
Parcel Locker 10093 18099213-219 Little Lonsdale Street
Melbourne VIC 3000
Posting unsolicited product does not guarantee a review or mention on the blog or associated social media.
Side Hustle Series
Each Sunday we feature a new side hustle. If you are doing something to make money on the side and are generating a profit, we’d be happy to feature you. A variety of questions are emailed across for you to answer. We require images, a bio and the answers which will form the post and be promoted across our social channels. You can join in my emailing [email protected] or using our Contact Form.
If you would like our writers to write for you, send an email to [email protected] with writer in the subject heading. Let us know where the content would be published and what you need.
Speaking At Or Attending Events
Kylie Travers, the owner of The Thrifty Issue is an experienced international keynote speaker. She is available to speak at events on anything including ways to make and save money, how to go from homeless to CEO, resilience, turning obstacles into opportunities, blogging or similar topics.
A speaking fee and travel fee apply to any events. Email [email protected] for more information or head to Kylie’s speaker page for more information and to book.
Attendance of events is by discretion. We receive numerous invites and as Kylie is based in Melbourne, with other staff in Canberra and overseas, events need to be local or a travel fee will be incurred. We are open to contra options when it comes to travel or discussing options for working together with promoting events, travel and experiences.
