MY OBLIGATIONS TO YOU
I feel very strongly that the relationship between Creators and Bloggers need to be a mutually beneficial one & whilst receiving review items, I also strongly believe that we need to support each other. Based on this, as a Creator, these are my essential obligations that I will fulfil for you:
- You will always receive a Fatpack or ALL items being released. It will never be just 1-2 colours or just a handful of items. You will also receive any event exclusive items as well.
- You’ll get advance notice of upcoming events & releases so can prepare for future blog posts & WIP’s (work in progress images) provided when possible.
- ALL feedback is welcome. If you have an issue or discover a problem with any items please advise as soon as possible. Your opinion is highly valued.
- Show support of your blog in various ways, eg. Following you on Flickr; Including a link for your blog on my blog. I will follow your blog (if its WordPress) &/or follow you on Facebook (your personal FB &/or FB Blog page).
- Liking and commenting on your pictures and posts on Flickr, Facebook & on Blog posts. It’s important for me to ensure you’re aware that I recognise and appreciate the effort you go to. This may also include liking/commenting on posts/pictures you do for other stores as well.
- In addition to receiving premium product as a blogger of my store, there will also be other benefits & incentives to blogging for Narcisse. I want you to continually strive to do your best and help you to achieve your goals, whether they be blog related or otherwise.
