“We love working with Tara Cannon and Pint Size Pilot.

“Having Tara and the family along to write about our ice cave trip was an absolute pleasure. Planning the trip and the subsequent article was extremely collaborative and communicative. She was professional at all times and her flair for expressive writing was delightful to read. Tara’s knowledge of search terms and SEO adds an extra level of effectiveness to the article too. Highly recommend!” – Ryan Connolly, Co-owner at Hidden Iceland

Services Pint Size Pilot Can Provide:
Hotel and Property Reviews:
Are you looking for digital media exposure for your hotel or resort property? We often visit and write about family hotel properties (and occasionally child-free weekend escapes). Posts are actively promoted by Pint Size Pilot on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Youtube when relevant.
Here is an example of a hotel property post for Awasi Atacama (Chile).
Working with Destination Marketing Organizations:
Our family loves to travel, discover and share unique destinations with Pint Size Pilot readers. When working with a destination, I try to offer multiple posts (hotel reviews, attraction features, roundup posts etc.). All content and travels are supported with Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Youtube videos where relevant.
Here is an example of a destination post for Barbados.
Unique and Exceptional Attraction or Tour Reviews:
I love to write about unique experiences that families can enjoy together. If your attraction, event or experience fits this description, please feel free to reach out to me.
Here is an example from an Ice Cave Tour with Hidden Iceland.
Quite frankly, I am not a big fan of sponsored posts unless it is with a brand that I feel is a perfect fit for my readers. My audience is very important to me and I do not want to dilute my content. I would consider working together in such a manner if the brand is a perfect fit and if I can create the content in my own words (links will be nofollow). Here is an example of a sponsored post for Expedia.
I welcome your inquiries. Please direct all correspondence to Tara Cannon, founder and editor of Pint Size Pilot at: [email protected] .
