Can we send Lush Palm product in exchange for promotion?
No, thanks. Lush Palm is a business run by a team of people, and like any business, we simply can’t operate on freebies and exchanges. We put a lot of work and love into Lush Palm and provide our partners with professional services, our time, and access to our audience, which we have worked very hard to build. If our brands are a mutual fit, we offer the following opportunities to work together: brand ambassadorship, destination marketing, display advertising, sponsored content, giveaways/contests, social media posts, professional photography, and video creation.

Can we send you brand content, blogs, or links to post on Lush Palm for free?
No. We do not accept promotional content from third-party marketing agencies, so please do not contact us about this.

Do you accept guest posts?
Yes. We are very selective, but we do accept original content from a limited number of influencers and bloggers who align with our brand.
