PRODUCT REVIEWS
To have your product(s) or service tested and thoroughly reviewed a non-returnable sample(is requested) must be provided in order to give my readers an accurate and honest review. Reviews are free of charge. They will feature detailed usage by myself and/or my family and typically include some or all of the following:
*Digital Photographs
*A little about the Company
*Keyword anchored product links
*Purchasing information
*The review will contain links back to your main page as well as any specific product links required.  It will be advertised by post on Facebook and Twitter.

Please Note: Samples will not be returned and review can take up to 1 week to post. I will always email you as soon as the post is up live.

PRODUCT GIVEAWAYS
Contests are an excellent way to have your product noticed by thousands of potential buyers and will direct traffic to your website as entrants are required to visit your website and comment on your product.
**Important Note: We do not ship prizes. We require that giveaway products are shipped directly from you
to the winner within 30 days of end date.

SPONSORED POSTS
Sponsored posts are for companies that want their product(s) or service highlighted on our site without a
review or giveaway. We do not provide an endorsement since we have not personally tested the product
or service. Feature posts do require a fee of $25 due to the time it takes to write the article. Note: This also
applies to website reviews. or if you write up the post yourself and all I have to do is copy and paste it I charge $10 flat fee
