About Lou

Louida Martin from Product Review Mom

Hey!  I'm Louida (Lou-why-da) Martin, but I like to go by Lou for short.

I was born and raised in Northern California, and now reside in Greater Atlanta Georgia area with my two daughters and high school sweetheart.

I started Product Review Mom blog back in 2012 as a hobby to document products I've tested out, and now it has turned into a full-blown, full-time business (LM Marketing, LLC), sharing my thoughts and opinions on a variety of different things and topics I enjoy in life like beauty, travel, fashion, entertainment, food, cars, Atlanta, money-making opportunities, and more!  I partner with brands to help get the word out about their awesome products and services! You'll also see my daughters hanging around with me sharing their opinions as well, and working behind the scenes.  It's a family business!

Product Review Mom has sky-rocketed to heights I couldn't imagine, being featured in top publications like Dr. Oz, The Good Life, First for Women's, and Womans World Magazine to name a few.  I've worked with leading name brands and small businesses getting the word out about their latest products and services, and my readers and followers look forward to what I have to say.  My posts are engaging with no shelf life because my articles rank well with search engines with posts performing well for years giving my clients a return on their investment!

I would love to partner with your brand!  Let's get to workContact me for media kit and rate sheet.

If any possible to be a Product Tester for me from India...please guide me...I am a man sitting with lap top for more than 6 hrs daily....why I can't I spare time for this also...Your kids are so smart....I would like to wish them .."Vazhga valamudan" the typical Tamil way of greeting..meaning " Live prosperously"...Thank you.

              1. Hello Ramasmy,

                I think the only way for you to test products is to become a blogger and contact companies you're interested in directly.

            4. Hey there Lou, I like the name. I am also a product reviewer and been featured on a few sites I haven't been blogging nearly as long as you have. I found a few of the places you listed to get product helpful. I'm on most of the places you listed I tried to comment with a thank you but I wasn't signed in and couldn't comment. So thanks for sharing it is always fun to meet other people who blog and review products too.

            5. Single Lady with a love for free products and sharing my opinion and influencing the future, did a google search and you were second link, looks like I will have a lot to learn from you
