Typically, the things I review are those I purchase in my everyday life for personal or professional use.
As I’ve published my reviews, a number of companies and individuals have reached out to me to get constructive criticism or reviews done on their products, places or services. I have also worked directly with companies confidentially in a consulting arrangement, providing feedback on products in development.
Policies for reviews requested by third parties
- Items or services reviewed must be provided free or at a significantly discounted rate.
- I am less likely to accept requests for review that involve cost – even significantly discounted. Reviews are not my main occupation and my money is tight.
- There are certain things I will likely refuse to review. This is typically due to things like personal preferences (ie. foods I don’t like), moral reasons, logistical issues (ie. something I can’t fit in my house), conflicts of interest, or things I don’t have expertise in.
- If items must be returned after review, the third-party is responsible for return costs.
- I always specify in my reviews where and how I obtained the items, and whether they were provided free or discounted.
- I provide an honest, thorough review in all cases, whether or not the products was purchased by me or provided by a third-party. If you provide me something to review, you must live with my honest opinion.
- My reviews include photos and/or videos.
- I am willing to sign NDA’s (non-disclosure agreements) in the event that a third-party is requesting my private consultations.
- I cannot guarantee turnaround time of published reviews.
