Blogging is immensly fun for a number of reasons… you get to constantly challenge and improve your creative skills, interact with other bloggers and build your own virtual haven into something you’re super proud of. Bringing the latest news on new product launches can be a super exciting part of it too, particularly when you start building great relationships with brands of all sizes, who are often thrilled to bits for help on promoting, launching and reviewing new products. Adding your feedback to a campaign is incredibly beneficial to brands too – not only are you helping to spread the word about their product or service, you’re also passing on your worthy opinion… which in my opinion helps the brand better their products by recognising what they’re getting wrong just as equally as what they’re getting right.
So if you’re a new or established blogger who loves the idea of working closely with brands & PR companies then why not check out these websites? All of them work alongside bloggers / influencers by creating opportunities to try a whole range of products. So rather than daydreaming about fulfilling your blogging sponsorship goals you could get started on stopping by these great sites to help your blog get a slice of the beauty action…
Bloggers Required work busily alongside brands and businesses to help connect bloggers with exciting assignments. Keep an eye on their website daily to ensure you don’t miss any great opportunities to review and test a pretty impressive selection of products.
This is one of my personal favs, I’ve worked quite a lot with Brand Backer over the past year and have been delighted with the great range of Brands and PR companies I’ve had the opportunity of collaborating with. There’s also scope for paid posts too!
With a huggge amount of social trendsetters and products on board, Influenster is certainly one of the most popular sites amongst bloggers who are eager to review and collaborate with a number of both established and emerging brands!

Slightly different concept, but seemingly brilliant nonetheless! Having made headlines in a series of national publications such as the New York Times, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal; House Party seems to be an exciting new way to gather friends and family under one roof by hosting a product party. You’ll get your pick of Parties from brands that’s coming soon, all you have to do is pick one you’re interested in to get the ball rolling.

This is great for emerging companies and small businesses to get connected with bloggers who are super eager to create great media exposure for new product launches and campaigns.
