Request a Media Invitation from TheSmartLocal
Looking for a good dose of free publicity on Singapore's leading online travel & lifestyle portal? We don't just rehash press releases. We create buzz, make events exciting and cross promote them on our social media channels to get people talking.
We believe that if your story interests our readers or our writers enough, mutually beneficial collaboration opportunities exist. We've worked with many PR agencies in Singapore as well as restaurants, hotels, airlines etc. Some examples here.
Those that would qualify under media invitation include new restaurant menus, new products, new shows, events etc. Don't just send us a press release and expect us to post about it. That will not happen. Our content on our portal attracts a large readership because it is credible and based on personal experience. All coverage we give have to be personally experienced by our writers.
We do not charge for these media invitations but expect your business to cover all the costs associated with our writers experience of it or offer enough incentive for them to come down.
Because of the number of invites we receive each day, we unfortunately are unable to accept all requests. Your media invitation has to be worth our writer's time and has to be of interest to our Singaporean readers.
Press releases without any proper invitation or the courtesy of an introductory email go straight in the bin. We are into building long term lasting relationships and do not appreciate being just another contact you spam your press release to on your mailing list. We pride ourselves with being able to provide more influence and coverage than other blogs or portals.
We also have optional premium add-on features that can supplement your campaign such as front page features and video highlights. Please first refer to our advertisement page for that. If you're looking for bundled services like professional grade photography so you have commercial rights for pictures for your media release, check out our digital media solutions page.
Note that media invitations do not affect our review component on our site which is a different system that remains independent from media invites and advertising.
If you're keen to run a longer campaign on TheSmartLocal through the year, please refer to our advertising page. For more information on the importance of blogger marketing please read this popular article I wrote for the Singapore Business Review.
