#000000;">I was contacted by a company that just loves my blog. They have asked if I would be interested in partnering with them doing product reviews in exchange for free products. They even said that I could have a product code so that my readers could enjoy the same products at a discounted rate. I thought that was so very generous of them! I haven’t decided what to do yet. I checked out the company and they are legit. I’m just not sure I have the confidence for it. I mean, my blog isn’t really all THAT good. It’s just a spot where I can dump my brain and get some encouraging words from you guys.
#000000;">So what I’ve decided to do is share some portions of the email I was sent and you guys can let me know what you think…. If enough of you would be interested in receiving the discounts offered, I will do the reviews. Anyway, here’s the request I was sent:
#000000;">Hi there – I’m emailing because I’d like to send you a free product to review on your website. First, I’ll tell you we make pleasure devices for men – yes – sex toys. I realize your website is not exactly in the “sex” niche, but your site is geared towards men who have all of the equipment needed to use our products. I saw your site and thought that although it is in a different niche, you may be able to include a review of one of our Mangasm prostate simulators as a bit of a change from your normal content. We also make a product called the Autoblow and are coming out with a new version soon. Anyone who posts a Mangasm review would be included on a list (only if they wish) to receive a free Autoblow when it comes out, for review purposes, of course. So, if you are up for it, this review would afford you the opportunity to receive a free product and get some mileage out of it from your readers, too. We always give out personalized discount codes to reviewers so that if their readers do want to try the product, they’d have you to thank for the substantial discount they received on it. To move forward, just respond to this email, and we can work out the rest of the details – mailing address, etc. Thanks! Brian Sloan CEO Very Intelligent Ecommerce, Inc. #000000;">www.vieci.com
#000000;">Well? What do you think? LOL
#000000;">Of course you all know that I’m only kidding! I wouldn’t do this. I must say though, the website is pretty interesting. They even have videos to watch so you can see how well their products work. Nothing like a bit of company validation for such requests. Oh my.
*Note… If you are at work or in the presence of children & feeling an inclination to visit the website of this company, you might want to rethink that… at least until you are in a more private situation!
