Our Readers and their Trust
Akron Ohio Moms was founded in 2008. Readership started through mom’s interested in play groups, local entrepreneurs, more writers, school friends and then new friends via Google and Facebook. Cindy Orley, our founder, will often get stopped on the street, or receive strange smiles and fun new introductions when out and about anywhere in Northeast Ohio.
We are real, tangible, and trusted people BECAUSE many of our readers can and do see us walking at the mall, park, or supermarket, and we never promote something we don’t approve of personally.
Many readers follow along to find out about local activities, check out new projects, complain about education initiatives, and discover new recipes.

How can You BEST Engage AOM readers?
Sponsored Ohio Content
Piggyback on our expertise – we create content that our readers want. Our standard focus is on highly visited resources or human interest stories for our readers.
We continuously seek partnerships for temporary or permanent sponsorships of these highly shared articles.
Think native advertising.
Sponsorship notices are inline in header images and inside of the text and can of course include a link to your own site. Local businesses and national brands are welcome to sponsor existing or new articles that are in our queue.

Value Conversations and Reviews
Product review articles fill the mom web. Getting traction for a review takes more than just a rehash of product specifications. It takes Great headlines, top notch imagery, real-life impressions, a little vulnerability, use videos, engaging conversational methodologies like metaphor, incentives, real-time parties online via the latest tech (let’s go past twitter parties, hangouts, and head to blab) and of course social engagement.
Product reviews do not risk negative reviews. In the case of a negative review experience, we offer direct to provider feedback of said negative experience, and provide no online review. Get an AOM Value Based Review >>
Recipe Development and Deployment
While drafting multiple iterations of recipes to become America’s Favorite Crescent Cook in 2010, Cindy Orley found recipe development to be part creativity, part luck, and part luscious food photography.
Since that time, creative energies have been poured into new recipes from specific sponsor ingredients. Deliverables include
- social media ready images
- descriptive posts
- food photography
- and full ownership rights
Cindy’s Remarkable Team LLC now offers food photography sessions for local restaurants and wholesale bakeries.

Although brand awareness is not a concept (think about my favorite local Good Year Blimp!) using influencers to aid in brand awareness is new.
Akron Ohio Moms works with major brands over set periods of times to essentially, be fan girls for a brand. Think: republishing works by a brand fan base, creating new creative fan-like content around a brand, or creatively using brand content in unexpected ways.
Examples? Think: painting the streets of Akron with Sriracha Sauce, stacking bottles of Dawn Dishwashing liquid for a carnival contest, or photoshopping Sunoco stickers to replace a kitchen floor.
Ask about brand promotion
Sometimes our partners have new ideas that don’t fit into any of the above. Sometimes we have stand-alone content that needs a business partner, and sometimes, we are the first out of the gate with a new idea. (Yes, we pioneered a WordPress plugin for giveaways, bucked the ‘blogger convention trend’ and hit industry shows instead.) Creativity is not a virtue that only a few humans have, it is one that requires effort, depth, and the combination of disparate ideas to create something new. We’re like that. Let’s get creative >>
