Mrs. O Around the World launched in November 2011, when its author, Ana Silva O’Reilly, decided to publish her vast travel knowledge to benefit friends, family and the wider online community.
Now eight years old, Mrs. O Around the World has evolved into a leading luxury travel and lifestyle blog, renowned for sharing stunning destinations, tips and tricks, and insights into the best places to eat, drink, shop, and everything in between.
Mrs. O Around the World now has more than 40,000 page views per month and 25,000 unique monthly visitors; 70,000 followers across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest; and an international audience spanning the UK, USA, Canada and Continental Europe.
Mrs. O Around the World is ranked third in USA Today’s list of luxury travel blogs, and is included in Vuelio’s (formerly Cision) top 10 UK Travel blogs, top 10 luxury travel blogs and in its UK Blog Top 50 ranking.
The big reset: a new website was launched in July 2019 and as a result, significant changes to its structure have been made, with a view to future proof it. All comments have been removed, all social shares and page views reset. I am a great believer in quality over quantity and ‘letting go’ of all the numbers meant I could apply better technology and provide a better user experience for my readers.
Are you a brand? Please read.
Please take some time to read through the various options I provide. My rates are fixed (please do not contact me offering me $200 for a sponsored post – it is a waste of your time.. and mine).
For PR or commercial opportunities, please email me through the contact form or at ‘ana at mrsoaroundtheworld dot com’
I have a very clear Editorial Policy: Please note that I do not accept unsolicited guest post requests. Please do not contact me offering me content that would be “of interest to my readers” – this blog is about my personal trips. I am happy to engage, endorse and represent brands that I have used and love – please get in touch should you think that Mrs. O Around the World is the right platform for your luxury travel related product or service. I do NOT write about any properties or locations I have not visited. Should I receive any compensation (financial or in the form of an experience) for any article or mention, this will be clearly disclosed. If I love a place, you will know it – if I don’t, believe me, you will too!
How can you work with Mrs. O?
Please note that my rates are fixed.
Invite Mrs. O to experience your product or service. I will then share my experience with my readers. If I think the product, service or destination is a great fit and of interest to my audience, I would love to hear from you. There is no charge for this service, but please note that all my travel costs should be covered. Product reviews is not something I do, so these would only be available as a sponsored post. Please see below for more details.
Please note that I do not go on group press trips. I believe that being a blogger is a very different thing from being a journalist and my blog is about my personal travel experiences, travelling the way that I always do (and that is not in groups). If you represent a client who would consider a private press trip, do feel free to contact me. There is no charge for this service, but please note that all my travel costs should be covered.
Live Social Media Coverage
Have Mrs. O share her experience live with her readers through her 3 social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram), with clear mentions of your brand (i.e. links to your social media accounts in context). This service starts at £500 per photo post or £750 for a video post. Additional charges apply to Facebook Live and Instagram Moments. The minimum charge for a brand engagement is £1500 (+ tax where applicable).
A great way to engage with my readers is to provide a giveaway, of appropriate value and brand nature to my readership. Typically, giveaways have a lifespan of 10 days, are promoted through my social email platforms and emailed to all my subscribers. This service starts at £1,250.
Should you wish to have a commercial post on my website (please note that I refuse 99% of requests due to its nature and inappropriateness, i.e. not adding value to my readers), rates start at £750 if written by the brand, and £1250 if by myself.. Please do NOT contact me offering to purchase random links. I do not sell them.
Various formats available on the right hand column of website, specific posts and newsletter. Please enquire for rates (min. spend £250/month).
Digital Marketing & Social Media Consulting Services
I work with a highly selected number of clients, helping them define their marketing and social media strategies on a holistic or more hands on manner, depending on the brief. If you need help defining and/or refining your social media strategy, including one to one training (various platforms), social media road map design, blogger selection/outreach programmes, traditional marketing and public relations, please get in touch. My rates start at £1,250 per day.
