You will see these disclosures at the top of any posts that have any form of compensation including but not limited to press samples, products, gift cards, paid posts, brand ambassadorships and more. It will clearly be disclosed so you know what has gone on.
PR SAMPLES: This disclosure will be used anytime the product in the post being talked about has been sent by a company or PR Firm for a review consideration. The opinions provided are 100% my own and I stay as objective as possible regardless of where the product(s) or service(s) came from.
AFFILIATE LINKS: You will see this disclosure when the post includes links to certain products that are affiliate links. I may make a small commission if you choose to purchase the item(s) through my link. I only link to products I have tried and/or fully believe will be of use to my readers.
Not every link is an affiliate link. I will still continue to only post and link to products that fit my personal style and believe are a help to my readers. I only share products, services and promote companies that I believe will benefit myself and/or my readers and that meet a high standard.
BRAND AMBASSADOR: You will see this disclosure if the products and company being talked about are someone whom I have a formal relationship with as a Brand Ambassador. All opinions have and will always be 100% my own regardless of the relationship I have with said company.
SPONSORED: You will see this disclosure in a situation where a sponsored post is a regular post (written by me, my wording, my opinions), but the brand pays me to ensure that the product does appear on the site, and within their timeline. Again, all opinions will be my own and I will never accept compensation just to show a product in a better light.
Sponsored Posts, continued: Instead of a button you may see something similar to this quoted at the top of the post “This post has been sponsored by COMPANY A, although I have been compensated for this post. All opinions are 100% my own” to signify a sponsored post.
COMPENSATION: The main form of financial compensation this blog receives is via advertising. This blog does on occasion, and always with discretion, accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation for collaborations consisting of original posts written by me, in what may be termed “advertorial”. Collaborations are only agreed upon so long as I may maintain my own opinion, voice, content, and personality that my readers have come to know. Affiliate links, which provide a commission based on sale or click number, may be used in posts and will be disclosed at the top of each post to maintain transparency. All editorial content is written without prejudice or bias, regardless of sponsor or affiliate associations.
REVIEWS: At this time Liz Marie Blog is currently accepting products, services, website mentions, or various other topics from brands, PR representatives, small businesses and Etsy shops. The fact that I have received a complimentary product will never influence the content, topics or posts made on the blog. Press samples submitted for review are For Consideration only. I do not provide any guarantee of review, positive or negative. While I try to only accept products of interest, if something does not fit right, looks weird, smells bad, tastes funny etc. I will not claim it to be otherwise! I may choose not to review an item, and I will never endorse or encourage the sale of a product that does not meet my standards or expectations. All reviews will always be 100% in my own opinion. Reviews are not subject to pre-approval by PR Representatives or brands. Brands or PR Representatives that wish to impose such pre-approval guidelines or wish to provide content that is not written by me, will not be accepted without compensation and will be labeled & disclosed appropriately as an advertorial. I reserve the right to NOT review an item sent to me for review. If you are sending me an item for review I will assume you have read all of these rules.
REVIEW DISCLAIMER: Please understand that due to the volume of requests I receive, I cannot guarantee a time frame when your item will appear in a post. I’m currently on a 2-3 week turn-a-round for product reviews. Please make note due to the volume of submissions and the investment of time and effort that goes into incorporating products into the content on Liz Marie Blog, any products sent for any purposes will not be returned.
FTC COMPLIANCE (NO EXCEPTIONS): Liz Marie Blog and it’s Author comply fully with the latest FTC Guidelines regarding disclosures (see above). All reviews of products are 100% in the blog owners opinion and are not subject to pre-approval by PR Representatives or brands. Brands or PR Representatives that wish to impose such pre-approval guidelines or wish to provide content that is not written by me, will not be accepted without compensation and will be labeled & disclosed appropriately as a sponsored post. This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the time of the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog but will not influence the opinions and honesty within the posts. Sponsored posts & content with links will always remain ‘no follow’ if compensation is exchanged.
WARRANTY & CLAIMS: The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog owner’s. If I claim or appear to be an expert on a certain topic or product or service area, I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my own expertise and experience are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with manufacturer or provider. I, the owner and author of Liz Marie Blog, make NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. This blog is provided “As Is” without warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied.
