My aim when creating The Black and White Guide was not to work with brands and companies but to discover likeminded individuals with a shared love of beauty and lifestyle similar to my own. I have been blessed with some incredible opportunities on this site and therefore need to provide you with a detailed disclosure policy and information about my acceptance of PR gifted products and sponsored content.
My honesty and transparency remains above all else as the most important thing to me. I truly value the friendships I have fostered through the site and my opinion cannot be purchased – no matter the price.
My website is ‘PR friendly’ meaning that I am happy to accept gifted items for consideration to feature on my website and my social media pages. Unless otherwise directly discussed with me I am unable to guarantee coverage for any item that is gifted to me.
Where possible, items that have been sent to myself for consideration will be denoted with an asterisk (*) after the name of the item in the body of text. When asked by readers if an item was gifted I will always answer honestly – and will always provide my honest opinion on the product. In the case of disliking a product, my policy is to discard the product immediately – but to contact you as to my reasons.
SPONSORED CONTENT / ADVERTISING ON THE BLACK AND WHITE GUIDE
To guarantee coverage on my website for your product/service/sale I believe wholeheartedly in being compensated for my time trialling, writing, shooting and editing – it is a lengthy process which of course I do love!
Services that I offer include sponsored blog posts and social media content; product giveaways and website advertising. I am happy to create the content myself or accept pre-written content within reason.
My greatest pride with sponsored content is that it does match with my website and my personal tastes and what my readers love and it is a non-negotiable that all sponsored content will be denoted as such at the bottom of the relevant blog post with a disclaimer, or on social media with a hashtag denoting an advertisement/sponsorship.
Please feel free to contact me via the contact form below if you wish to speak with me regarding potential blog post/social media collaborations or providing product for consideration. Alternatively, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org for any enquiries.
