Great American Road Trip



My name is Laura Bock, I am a writer and photographer from Northeast Ohio. I would like to take a moment to tell you about my idea for an original and creative grassroots advertising campaign featuring a quality American made car!

The Great American Road Trip in a Great American Car©

A lifelong dream of mine, I want to drive the classic Route 66 round trip, for a little over a month total of travel. What I am looking for are sponsors to help make this trip a reality. I have different sponsorship levels which all feature great advertising opportunities and exposure.

While driving Route 66, I will take photos of the Great American car I am driving in front of different classic landmarks along Route 66 and share them on my website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Google+. I will write blogs about my adventures, making sure to mention the car, its features, and drivability, along with gas mileage and any other noteworthy opinions on the car. I will also talk about music and other tidbits as they relate to the trip. I am looking to embark upon this trip in the late summer/early fall (mid-August to mid-September).

A little about my writing career: I’ve been published on Rebelle Society, Elephant Journal, Thought Catalog, {Be You} Media Group, The Tattooed Buddha, and had a featured guest post on the popular blog Confessions of a Funeral Director. I was also a featured writer for the now defunct online magazine Indie Chicks.

I also have an active blog site, Tales of a Formerly Inadequate Fat Girl, where I write about music, pop-culture, living with depression and other life topics; my blog is currently averaging 8-10,000 hits per week with over 2,500 unique visitors every month, with almost 2.5 million views since 2012. I will supplement these blog posts with social media marketing and shares.

My Facebook (1,225 likes) and Twitter (3,535 followers) are active accounts with real followers, as well as my Instagram (500 followers) and Pinterest (487 followers); I recently started using Google+ (61 followers), so my circles are slowly but surely growing. My blog is also set to share with my Linkedin (456 followers), reaching my business network as well as my regular social network.

Would you be interested in an original grassroots advertising campaign like this with me? If so, please let me know which sponsorship level you want and I will start to plan our collaboration with this advertising opportunity.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

Yours in creativity,
