As a business professional (I hold an MBA in Project Management) I understand the importance of word of mouth advertising and the value of a strong online presence for brands and businesses. Through online marketing I was able to build a successful business from nothing to a six figure business in just over a year. This website is an extension of myself, bringing together the things that I love and care about to share with others who have similar passions.
MarocMama started in 2007 as a means to share my home recipes and the recipes from around the world that I loved. There is a strong emphasis on Moroccan/Mediterranean food and travel however, as I have grown (along with my blog) the scope of MarocMama has expanded to include other areas of my life that are important. As a world traveling, mom of two boys, a wife, and business owner I hope to offer a unique point of view in the blogging world. We live a globally conscious, bi-cultural life and I strive to provide both my family and my readers with a broad perspective in food and experience.

I love to feature reviews for products that fit with the community of readers on MarocMama. I believe firmly in providing an honest and accurate review of products and services. Your product will be featured in a blog post and could include digital photographs and video. I will also include company details, purchasing information, anchored keyword links and other promotional information for your brand – details of which to be discussed prior to posting. I work with each company individually to create a post that fits both of our standards and needs.
Giveaways are common on many blogs. MarocMama is not a review and giveaway blog, however I do like to include these types of posts on occasion. I strive to feature and giveaway products that are a great match for both of us. I want you to get the most out of a giveaway, to create brand loyalty and customers who want to come back for more. I also understand the business angle of offering promotional giveaway items and thus only do giveaways for products I believe will meet those business goals.
Please email me to discuss each of these options for pricing.
The MarocMama family is currently accepting sponsorship for travel within Africa, Europe, and Asia.
