Work with Me

Welcome to Watch Me See, a leading travel website for travel advice, inspiration and information with a particular focus on travel in Scotland. Whether you are a destination office, a marketing agency, a brand or a tour operator, I’d love to hear how we could work together to raise your profile or share a campaign.

If you are interested in working with Watch Me See, please read on to find out more. To receive my media kit with current stats and information, or to discuss particular projects you are working on, please drop me an email at kathi@watchmesee.com.

My blog is my full-time business. As such, I cannot accept products or travel credit as compensation for collaborations on the blog or my social channels. For every project, I spend a significant amount of time to create high-quality content. This includes researching a trip or a topic, writing engaging blog posts, editing photos videos, composing social media posts tailored to each channel, SEO optimising my content, tracking & reporting after a campaign and of course the time it takes me to go on the trip to collect content and make the experiences to write about. My rates are competitive and compare with travel bloggers of similar audience size and authority. My rate card is available upon request.

ABOUT WATCH ME SEE

Watch Me See was founded by Kathi Kamleitner in March 2016 with the purpose of inspiring travellers in Scotland to explore the country to its fullest, get off the beaten track and make the most of the little time they have along their chosen route.

After gathering experience as a travel writer for various platforms, editor for a large online travel magazine for women, and extensive backpacking and travel experience around Scotland and beyond, I have turned Watch Me See into a trusted source for information and advice within its target niche.

In the past, I have been able to promote and amplify a number of tourism boards around the world, as well as a range of tour companies and destination offices in Scotland.

Services offered

There is a wide range of promotional services I offer to engage my audience with your destination, business or product.

Watch Me See is careful to only undertake partnerships with businesses and brands that share the values and priorities of Watch Me See, particularly promoting active, sustainable and eco-friendly tourism in Scotland and beyond. All content created will be relevant and useful to my readers.

Please note I do not work for free. No press releases or traditional sponsored content will be placed on this site, nor will any marketing work be undertaken, for free or for exposure.  All work is covered under my competitive rates. My rate card is available upon request.

Press trips and destination marketing

I am available for press trips and tailored destination marketing campaigns to highlight a particular aspect of a region or destination.

Deliverables as part of a press trip or destination marketing campaign should be discussed individually, depending on your requirements, and can include content creation, promotional posts, reviews, photography, videography and social media promotion.

The advertorial posts will be written from a personal point of view and incorporate relevant information that revolved around your product or message. If you are looking for visual content, I can also create professional photography, as well as videography and vlogs.

All promotional posts and native advertising articles are fully disclosed as such to comply with legal, professional and ethical guidelines and to comply with current industry standards.

Reviews

The trust of my readers and my authority among a specific target niche makes Watch Me See the right platform to review your travel-related product or service. All reviews on Watch Me See are based on personal experiences and are thorough, honest and unbiased.

If the review is for a product, I will require one product for review, supplied by the brand. If the review is for a service or accommodation, then I expect that it will be provided to be thoroughly tested as part of the process, not instead of payment.

Reviews can relate to:

  • Hotels, B&Bs and all other forms of accommodation (e.g. self-catering, glamping)
  • Travel clothing and outdoor equipment
  • Forms of transport, car rental agencies or airlines
  • Organised and guided tours or trip planning tools

EXAMPLES:

1-day tour to Alnwick Castle and Holy Island // Client: Timberbush Tours // Link
10 Year Anniversary of Go Ape Aberfoyle //Partner: Go Ape & Big Partnership // Link
Hiking boots for long-distance hiking //Partner: Zamberlan // Link
The Cosy Vegan B&B in Fife //Partner: The Cosy Vegan B&B // Link

Social media promotion

All articles created in partnership come with the promotion of the posts on the social media channels of Watch Me See.

However, additional posts across social media platforms can be arranged to maximise the reach and engagement with your brand with my audience on social media.

Brand Ambassadorship

Long-term partnerships and consistent promotion are some of the most efficient ways to create targeted promotion and establish a trusted relationship with the audience of Watch Me See.

A brand ambassadorship is a mutually beneficial relationship that can include a variety of the above-mentioned services, depending on your needs. These partnerships work best long-term, thus a minimum of six months and consistent promotion across this timeframe is expected.

Brand ambassadorship is open to all brands that are relevant to my target audience and share the ethos and values of Watch Me See.

Partner Feedback

Working with Kathi to promote the exciting festivals in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire has been a pleasure. We worked together to come up with an itinerary and content that would be of interest to both of our audiences. She had a clear understanding of our partner objectives from the outset and was a joy to work with.
Julia Heys, VisitAberdeenshire (2018)

Every time we work with Kathi we are treated to even better quality reviews and videos. She has the ability to highlight the main parts of our tours using her great photography skills and she provides historical information about the sites and gives useful advice for future passengers – not just a description of what she saw or did. Fantastic to work with and we hope to collaborate more in the future.
Ruairi Hill, Timberbush Tours (2018) // See the content!

The quality of Kathi’s content is excellent, and she is professional, reliable and easy to work with – we would recommend partnering with her to other brands.
Laura Simpson, Weber Shandwick (2017) // See the content!

Kathi has been a pleasure to work with on the Faroe Islands Translate project. She delivered an engaging, well-written article with stunning accompanying photography that perfectly fits the brief. Very pleased and hope to have the opportunity to work with Kathi again.
