Overview of Smiley360
This is no fly-by-night company in that it has been around for a very long time, with some reviewers joining over 5 years ago.
I am listing this as a “Product Review Site” since it is not only about getting product from Amazon with the expectation of only reviewing on Amazon. They also want you to use your social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, “Smiley Connect, Instagram, Pinterest, your personal blog, YouTube or on an online review site such as Amazon.” Though, no matter where you post your review, you still are required to state the disclaimer we are all so used to leaving at the end of our reviews. In an interesting twist, Smiley360 states you can also just use a hashtag on social media:
An example of how you can do this is to include the following phrase in your review:
“I received [product name] for free from Smiley360.”
Or you can simply add the hashtag(#) #freesamp to the end of your post:
“Loved trying [product name]. I would definitely recommend this. Check it out #freesamp”
On that note: they do say that “Facebook and Twitter are usually required for most of our Missions.” Missions are what they call ‘product reviews’. It’s a task for you to review a product (which you can decline or not accept.) Sounds like only reviewing items on Amazon is not exactly what they are after. You may even find they ask you to post your review on walmart.com, walgreens.com, and other ecommerce sites.
Their Help Center and blog are HUGE and deep. They cover just about everything, though I still can’t find where they state how long you have to post your review. Maybe it’s part of the Mission details?
Tell them I sent you!
