If your company isn’t utilizing influencer marketing yet, you are missing out. It’s only going to become more popular, more profitable, and truthfully, more competitive. Handing a popular celebrity your shaker cup and asking them to tell their friends to buy it isn’t enough. You’re going to have to get more creative if you want to keep the attention of your consumers.” – Inc. magazine article: “In 2017 Influencer Marketing Is About To Go Through The Roof – What’s your influencer marketing strategy?”

Ad agency Rhythm One found that average earned media value for every dollar spent on influencer marketing programmes was $9.60 – a 960% return on investment. This was 1.4 times higher than recorded in H1 2015, when the RoI was 685%. Every $1 spent on influencer marketing returned $12.54 in the “Tourism Destinations & Travel” sector, $12.21 in the “Bath, Body and Beauty” and $4.50 in “Retailers & Apparel”.

Why Work With Urbanette?

Hilary Rowland, Influencer Marketing Blogger Magazine

Hilary is an established influencer

All of our sponsored posts are created by tastemaker and influencer Hilary Rowland (hashtag #HilaryRowland). Unlike other blogs/influencers, our followers (check out our readership numbers) are not over-marketed to. Our newsletter is monthly, and we post to our permanent Instagram feed twice weekly, on a schedule (Instagram “stories” are posted frequently). When our loyal readers see something recommended by Urbanette, they pay attention.


Urbanette’s readers listen — and convert.
ROI is off the charts.


More value for your money

So that each post has maximum and lasting impact, we focus on quality over quantity.

Once per week: we publish one long-form article on All new articles are promoted on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Google Plus. Articles written by Hilary are also shared on her Facebook page, Love, Hilary Rowland.

We spend the an entire week actively promoting, sharing, and optimizing each article.

Three times per week: we publish a social media photo post, or short video, with description, published to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, TumblrLinkedIn (and, occasionally, YouTube).



5 ways our unique posting schedule benefits brands:


  1. Because we only publish to our permanent Instagram collection/feed eight times per month (instead of eight times per day, like some other publications/blogs), your Instagram post won’t get lost in a pile of posts, and will stay visible near the top of our feed for many months. In addition, we use the ‘Stories’ feature frequently, to draw our followers back to our feed throughout each day, therefore getting your post more eyeballs than even feeds with 20x the followers.
    • Similarly, since we only make three Twitter and three Facebook posts per week, your post will stay near the top of our feed for months.
  2. Urbanette is totally unlike other blogs, which post many times per day, thereby watering down and distracting their followers with tens of (potentially conflicting) recommendations each day.
    • This means that while the domain name may get less traffic overall than sites like Refinery29, each individual article gets read more times than articles on even the most extremely high-traffic websites.
  3. Our readers eagerly anticipate our next post, as they know we focus on quality instead of quantity. Our readers don’t miss posts or get burnt-out by the volume of posts.
  4. Our readers know that each and every recommendation comes with a lot of weight and thought, since we recommend so few products.
  5. Instead of throwing up multiple low-quality posts per day, we spend an entire week working on promoting each new article. On average, we spend a combined 90 hours promoting each article.

Here’s more about our readership and traffic numbers.

Businesses make an average of $23 for every dollar invested in influencer marketing. (Nielsen)

We know how much harder it is to get funding as a female founder, so we give large discounts for businesses run and founded by women!


Examples of sponsorships

Pricing is updated monthly, depending on the previous month’s traffic. Pricing within the ‘price range’ mostly depends on how naturally the brand fits with Urbanette’s content and what the sponsor requires. Please note that we do not accept affiliate marketing partnerships, as it would be too difficult for our small team to keep track of multiple partnerships like this.

We give discounts to brands who:

  • are founded and run by a woman
  • have an ethical mission and donate a large % of profits to charity
  • purchase multiple posts and pay upfront

Why do a multi-post deal with one influencer?
This quote from Huff Post says it best:
“If I had you guess how many information sources, on average that a buyer engages with prior to making a purchase what would you guess? Would you say two or three or perhaps four or five? What if I told you the number were 11.4?

Influencer Marketing - Hilary Rowland and Gerard Butler

In a study performed by Google (zero moment of truth), they found that buyers on average engage with more than 11 pieces of content prior to making a purchase decision and according to a study by Forrester Research that number has doubled year over year.

Furthermore, we have entered a day where the consumer really doesn’t trust advertisements. Instead, the new consumer seeks to make purchase decisions through word of mouth and brand engagement via social platforms and native advertising (content marketing). In fact, 90% of consumers trust a recommendation from their network and 81% of those go online to get those recommendations.”

Hence, the traditional advertising model of brands picking specific TV shows and then repeating the same commercial over and over to the same viewers throughout the season.
