Daphne Snell for-profit blog. All income made on this blog will be done so in an ethical manner. All reviews, sponsored posts, and applicable ads are hand selected by me and will contain my 100% honest opinion. I reserve the right to refuse sponsorship if it does not meet the needs or benefits the audience and readers of Daphne Snell. All requests for reimbursement will be reviewed accordingly and a decision will be rendered after review. Prices are subject to change based on the scope of work requested.
You will see certain disclosures at the top of any posts that have any form of compensation including but not limited to press samples, products, gift cards, paid posts, brand ambassadorships and more. It will clearly be disclosed so you are an informed reader and consumer.
You will see this disclosure at the top of every post that contains affiliate links. When the post includes links to certain products that are affiliate links, I may make a small commission if you choose to purchase the item(s) through my link. I only link to products I have tried and/or fully believe will be of use to my readers.
You will see this disclosure in a situation where a sponsored post is a regular post (written by me, my wording, my opinions), but the brand pays me to ensure that the product does appear on the site, and with their timeline. Again, all opinions will be my own and I will never accept compensation just to show a product in a better light.
COMPENSATION: The main form of financial compensation this blog receives is via digital downloads. This blog does on occasion and always with discretion accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation for collaborations consisting of original posts written by the Author, in what may be termed “advertorial”. Collaborations are only agreed upon so long as the Author may maintain her own opinion, voice, content, and personality that her readers have come to know. Affiliate links, which provide a commission based on the sale or click number, may be used in posts and will be disclosed at the top of each post to maintain transparency. All editorial content is written without prejudice or bias, regardless of sponsor or affiliate associations.
REVIEWS: At this time, Daphne Snell is currently accepting products, services, website mentions, or various other topics from brands, PR representatives, and small businesses for an accurate and honest review. The fact that the Author has received a complimentary product will never influence the content, topics or posts made on the blog. Press samples submitted for review are For Consideration only. The blog and its Author do not provide any guarantee of review, positive or negative. While Daphne tries to only accept products of interest, if something does not work correctly, looks different from the item photos and description, smells foul, tastes funny, etc., the Author will not claim it to be otherwise! The blog and its Author may choose not to review an item and the Author will never endorse or encourage the sale of a product that does not meet the Author’s standards or expectations. All reviews will always be 100% in the Author’s opinion. All reviews of products are 100% in the blog owners opinion and are not subject to pre-approval by PR Representatives or brands. Brands or PR Representatives that wish to impose such pre-approval guidelines or wish to provide content that is not written by me, will not be accepted without compensation and will be labeled & disclosed appropriately as an advertorial. I reserve the right to NOT review an item sent to me for review. If you are sending me an item for review I will assume you have read all of my disclosures.
REVIEW DISCLAIMER: Please understand that due to the volume of requests received by the Author, she cannot guarantee a time frame when your item will appear in a post. I’m currently on a 4-6 week turn-a-round for product reviews. Please make note that due to the volume of submissions and the investment of time and effort that goes into incorporating products into the content on this blog, any products sent for any purposes will not be returned.
FTC COMPLIANCE (NO EXCEPTIONS): Daphne Snell and its Author comply fully with the latest FTC Guidelines regarding disclosures (see above). All reviews of products are 100% in the blog owner’s opinion and are not subject to pre-approval by PR Representatives or brands. Brands or PR Representatives that wish to impose such pre-approval guidelines or wish to provide content that is not written by me, will not be accepted without compensation and will be labeled & disclosed appropriately as a sponsored post. This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion, and identity. The compensation received may influence the time of the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog but will not influence the opinions and honesty within the posts. Sponsored posts & content with links will always remain ‘no follow’ if compensation is exchanged.
