Word of Mouth will always be the most effective means of promoting a product. With that in mind, I am thrilled to do product reviews here at Centsable Couponing. I know I always like to hear what others like me think about the items they're buying and using.
For the most part, I like to try just about anything that sparks an interest with me or might fuel a lively discussion. While this is primarily a couponing blog, it will also feature products that enhance our lives and those that offer us value. Please don't be afraid to contact me if you have something that you feel may be a fit either here or on one of my other blogs: MoonCat Farms Meanderings and One Book Shy of a Full Shelf
Please don't be offended if we choose not to promote your specific product. That particular item might not be a fit for me, but your next one could! Be sure to keep us on the mailing list. Time is another major factor in my decision on what I will review or not. My time can be limited and I need to pick those products that will have the best chance of being a match for me and my readers.
I welcome all requests for reviews and may be contacted at either of the emails listed below. If at all possible, I prefer to do a giveaway with most reviews. I feel this provides an even broader exposure of the product as well as being a great perk for the readers/consumers.
I like to be able to take my time to thoroughly test a product and not be rushed to get it finished. Unless we are working on a time-sensitive tour or have already pre-arranged a date for the review, it may take several weeks or longer once I've received my sample to get the review written and published. If you have a deadline, I need to know about it in advance so we can plan accordingly. I won't post a review of a product that I haven't tested and sampled myself and I will not guarantee a review. This is one of the reasons I try to be choosy about what I accept.
I do not like to make negative remarks and will never deliberately slam a product or manufacturer. I do, however, write honest reviews. If something was off for me with a product, I will remark upon it and explain my feelings. My reviews are 100% my own opinions and my own words. I like to focus on the aspects of an item that I really enjoyed or got a lot out of. ***** If I am having a hard time with a product or just can't find something positive to share about it, I reserve the right to discontinue testing it and/or not completing a review. I may forward it to a blogging friend who it might fit better with and therefore garner a better review of the product.
If requested, I can also post a review on Amazon.com or another site. (I may also post my review on my other blog: http://mooncatfarms.blogspot.com/ if the product might be a fit for my readers there as well.)
I retain the rights to what I have written on my blog. I have no problem with my reviews or comments being used elsewhere as long as there are links back to my blog and I am notified beforehand that the content is being used elsewhere.
I do make use of affiliate links when available and may receive a small percentage from a sale that is conducted through a link on this blog. This minuscule amount of money goes to paying for the upkeep and maintenance of this blog and website. I, along with the manufacturer, appreciate readers clicking on my links when purchasing one of the items I've showcased.
I never sell any sample products, but I may offer them in a giveaway or donate them to a worthy organization if appropriate. I do participate in swaps as well which gets your product out to an even larger audience.
I hope you'll take the time to get to know a little bit about me and my writing style. I look forward to discussing your product and plan with you.
