Blog & Website Disclosure
Here at Inspire Beauty we like everything to be upfront and transparent in disclosing if a blog post, website feature, social media post, newsletter, video, webinar, course, consultation, or email communication has affiliate links, sponsored content, or a featured product that was gifted for PR or editorial purposes.
If you’ve been a longtime reader of Inspire Beauty, you know Natasha’s reviews, recommendations, and features are very honest. When she reviews or recommends a product, she shares what she likes and doesn’t like about the product. She doesn’t hold back her opinion and experience using the product. Sometimes she loves a product, sometimes she doesn’t, and she always lets you know. Natasha prides herself for writing and creating video and blog content for her audience and customers, not to please brands.
With that being said, we want to make sure everything is as clear as possible about the use of affiliate links, sponsored posts, and gifted PR products.
We use affiliate links on my website, blog, YouTube videos, newsletters, Instagram, courses, and email communications.
An affiliate link means we may earn a commission if you make a purchase through the link, without any extra cost to you. That means you’re paying the same amount for the product you are purchasing that everyone else pays, but we may receive a small commission or fee for referring you.
The compensation received will never influence our opinion of the product, blog reviews and recommendations, social media, video reviews, topics choices, and features.
The products you buy from Inspire Beauty online shop is purchased directly from our boutique, there’s no affiliate association.
It’s safe to assume that majority of product links that take you off Inspire Beauty website and to another online store or brand website are affiliate links.
We rarely do sponsored posts. It’s not because we don’t want to, we just haven’t come across many sponsored campaigns we want to participate in.
When contacted by a brand for sponsored content, we first research the brand and product to make sure the product is truly a product we would be interested in featuring on our website or social media, and that would bring value to our audience.
If it’s a good fit, we go ahead with the sponsored partnership, if not, we turn it down. There’s no point in doing sponsored content if we don’t like a product, or it’s not a good fit for our audience.
If we feature sponsored content on Inspire Beauty website or social media, it will always be clearly identified as being sponsored.
There are third party ads on the YouTube videos. We are a member of YouTube Partner Program. Other than the ads on the YouTube videos, there are no other third party ads on Inspire Beauty.
PR Samples and Gifts
Occasionally a brand may reach out wanting to send free products, samples, or PR gifts. We always make sure it’s clear to the brand that if they send products, there’s no guarantee it will be mentioned, featured, or get a positive review on the blog, social media or newsletter.
If a brand wants to send products for consideration, great, but we’re very clear that there should be no expectations of anything in return.
We don’t do blog or social media features, shoutouts, or reviews in exchange for free products.
If a product featured in a review or mention on the blog or social media has been gifted by a brand or is a PR sample, it will be clearly identified that it is gifted in the blog content and/or social media post.
