Ever-evolving, always maintaining, and forever elevating, that’s how Dana Vento of DanaVento.Com has become the brand and writer/influencer she is. I’ve been a media representative, a local expert, an HR Corporate trainer, and a Chef. I am an award-winning travel writer, recipe creator, and DIY’er.
Collaborations with Dana Vento
Lifestyle Writer/Influencer and that’s the short story. Call it lifestyle content or call it a dedicated work ethic in areas that interest me, and MY READERSHIP and social fans. While my website is about my ‘life’, yep there’s the lifestyle moment, the rest of it is about travel, food, and DIY.
Collaborations with Dana Vento + Big Travel Moments
Dana Vento is an Award-Winning, travel writer, who has also been featured on large travel websites with feature articles, and my travel photography* has been used in travel brochures for large tour operators, which is USA Based but offers tours throughout Europe!
Winning travel awards or writing cohesive articles on Niagara USA, and dedicated insight to Cabarrus, 2 years in a row, before the travel industry closed for COVID definitely was a big moment! Yet, I am going for more, why stop? Other destinations need to be highlighted too right?
To top that, I’ve recently had four (4) articles featured in Google News in Travel Topics and that’s been over-the-top amazing!
And, while not the last, or the least, Social Animal just named Dana Vento No. 46 of the top 101 Travel Influencers to watch!
Collaborations with Dana Vento: Culinary, New Menus, Restaurants + Travel
If I told you that one of my bread-making recipes has over 2 million pins, gads of images sent replicating it, and endless praise would that be a head-turner?
My recipes are all about simple ingredients yielding a big taste. I am not at Tik-Toker, I do however create simple follow videos instructions as well as recipes that are printable.
Still not enough to persuade you to work with me? Well, then there’s this: Chances are you have downloaded some of my recipes, or watched my videos for making food and didn’t even know it was me, because I write for large brands who hire me on as a ghostwriter, and well the rest is already in your belly!
One brand, in particular, is a monster website for food recipes with appliances such as air fryers, steamers, bread makers, induction top cookers, toaster ovens, and more so I am sure you’ve tried my recipes!
My Hidden Talent for other consideration for collaboration with Dana Vento
Call it barrier breaking or just the want to level the playing field, car shopping needs to be changed!
This talent is not really hidden, but it’s not at the forefront but it’s what I love. Cars. I’ve been test-driving cars since, 2012, writing or videoing the stories and there’s more. Knowing as much as I do about a vehicle when it comes to car shopping and a very ‘male-driven’ (Pun intended) market, I was featured in Redbook for my savvy skills for car shopping.
In fact, I’ve been able to successfully purchase my last 3 cars, at very much below the sticker price, find incentives most don’t know about, and then work the price down to include things that are not normally included.
Last, since I’ve been behind the wheel of many brands, through collaborations, and driven the vehicles through many states on vacations, that I always consider these car reviews treasured moments. I mean, being placed in a car to share it with my readership is amazing!
