The Chocolate Cult: Fee Schedule

Fee Schedule

Over the years, the founder and main author of The Chocolate Cult has spent a minimum of three hours and sometimes as many as 12+ hours a week on correspondence, evaluations of products, managing co-authors and editing their contributions, photographing, writing posts, and promoting the articles we publish. As more and more brands and organization have been asking us to help promote them, we will now be charging for some articles and services. We consider these fees to be quite low considering the going rate for sponsored blog posts. Our principal goal, however, still remains to educate and inform the consumer so they can make better choices, trusting that we will only endorse what we consider to be quality chocolate and chocolate related matters.

Note: All products to be tested or featured in any fashion must be made of chocolate, from part of the cocoa tree, or related directly to chocolate.

Fees are arranged in ascending order.
