Family Dollar Reaches Out to Mommy Bloggers & Value Seekers

Mathews, North Carolina based discount retailer Family Dollar has launched a campaign to promote its new Private Brand Family Gourmet. The campaign takes advantage of the mommy blogger phenomenon to reach value seeking customers . Social Spark is a sponsorship marketplace that connects bloggers with advertisers who will compensate them when they write blog posts about their products, services and websites on their own blog.

SocialSpark requires that all sponsored posts include an in-post disclosure. And directs bloggers that they are free to share real opinions. All links are 100% no-follow and SEO friendly.

In this post Tara Kuczykowski a married mom of three boys and two girls, ages 2 to 8 years, living in Columbus, OH and author of Deal Seeking Mom speaks directly to her more than 80,000 deal seeking readers. According to her blog: “she is a former career-oriented professional turned stay-at-home mom, reconciling champagne tastes with a tap-water budget was a challenge, especially with a large family. By learning how to cut costs on her family’s basic needs, she has found the key to having more disposable income for the things in life that make it worth living.

Tara is introducing the basics of couponing to a new generation of coupon clippers through her money-saving blog, Deal Seeking Mom, teaching readers across the U.S. how to stretch their budgets in order to make room for occasional splurges. Living the good life while spending less is possible with just a little effort.”
