Working with Networking Companies and PR Representatives (Press Samples)

I sometimes do posts featuring products sent to me for test and review. Most of the time these products are sent to me by marketing companies or the PR department for a company/brand. There are also companies that send out boxes of mixed samples for test and review. You sign up on their website and they will start to send you products when you have a high enough following on social media. I am a member of some of these programs. Being sent products in no way changes my opinions of the products. All opinions are 100% my own!

Posts containing products received for review will have a disclaimer at the bottom that will read something like the following: "Disclaimer: I received this product or products for testing and my honest review. All opinions are 100% my own." The disclaimer may read differently if the company or brand requires.

Posts that contain products I have received for review will have a small photo at the very top of the post to indicate the products were sent to me for review. You can see it to the right. 




Working with Network Companies (Sponsored Content)
 

Some network companies work with bloggers to bring them sponsored content and to help bloggers create relationships with brands. Instead of being sent samples this companies work with blogger to help them find brands that want to work with bloggers.

All content made possible by these networks will be classed as Sponsored content and marked as such. (See Sponsored Content Disclaimer above)

On occasion doing on of the sponsored posts from this brand may involve a press sample. These posts will be classed as Sponsored Content with a press sample and will be marked with both the Sponsored Content image and the Press Sample image.  




Networks I'm Currently "Partnered" With


Influenster

I am a member of Influenster. They are one of the companies that send out boxes of samples. For the past few months I've been sent a box about every 2 months. They send me products and I test them out then share my experience. Again being sent these products in no way changes my view on the products. All opinions are 100% my own. 

Any posts containing products I've received from Influenster will have a disclaimer at the bottom of the post that reads: "Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes." It might be worded differently if Influenster requires. 

All Posts about products from Influenster are classed as Press Samples and shall be marked as such. (See Press Sample disclaimer above)

Collaboration Posts

Some posts I write for companies may not be a sponsored post but a collaboration which means I will write a post on my blog and then they will feature it on their blog or website, and link to me. Usually this means they contacted me about the idea for the post for a campaign they are doing. These post will usually have a small paragraph with their info at the bottom of the posts. 

These post will also have something like this written at the bottom "Disclaimer: This post is a collaboration with ________. You can check out their site here." The disclaimer may include a few more links if the company or brand requires. Or if I feel comfortable adding more links upon their request. Collaboration posts are not a paid for advertisement.
