Product Placement via Social Media:
If sponsoring a post is out of your budget, there are some ways to have your product featured across Whoorl and its social media channels in an organic, authentic way. When I receive products that I like, I typically feature them as a product mention within a blog post or an Instagram photo. Some blog examples are outfit posts or a mention of a service, such as a yoga studio or the Headspace app. Some examples of Instagram brand mentions can be found here and here. If you would like to submit a product for inclusion, please email me.
