I am just going to put this out there.....cause I see this a lot
If you want to work with a company don't do the following:
1) Facebook message them and say "Hey Girl.." send a formal email with links to your work, website or whatever... No "Hey doll this or that"... Just cause they have a thumbnail of a girl doesn't mean you are speaking to them. Unless there is an established relationship .. then that is different.
2) Don't FB message or email about how you just started xyz and want free product. Everyone likes SWAG. Send them links to what you do and how you guys can work together. Blurry photos and personal photos( I mean booty/boob/ inappropriate stufff) will make a company click that X button so fast!
3) Don't mass spam companies with a canned email.
4) If you haven't tried their product don't offer a positive review for free stuff. It is truly getting harder to know who is telling the truth with reviews now. You do reviews because you want to help and telling someone a crusty lipgloss is great doesn't help anyone.
Ok.. those are my tips of the day.
Add more if you would like. I'd love to hear what you have to say.
