Mom-Blog is happy to consider your product for giveaway. Here’s what you need to know:
- I prefer to one run giveaway at a time, so please give me ample time to schedule. I’m usually booked up at a least a few weeks in advance. Again, I am flexible on this issue.
- I’m looking for high quality products that are of particular interest to mothers of children with special needs.
- You must send the prize directly to the winner, rather than to me.
- You must not store the winner’s information for any other purpose.
- For legal and tax reasons, giveaways will be limited to U.S. residents and contestants must be over the age of 18 only.
- Please provide images that I can legally use of your product. I will not download them from the site, so your submission will transfer all copyright issues to you. Please make sure you can legally use your images. If you run a contest with me, you specifically agree that you will be any responsibility for copyright violation on provided images.
- Facebook forbids you to ask for a “like” for your Facebook as either a mandatory or optional entry. Sorry, but I can’t do that – and you can get in trouble too! Learn more here: “Liking” on Facebook? Facebook Guidelines say NO!
- For the kind of contests I generally run (a sweepstakes where the winner is randomly chosen), consideration is not legally allowed – that is, users cannot visit your website and comment on the product for any reason. Learn more here: It’s Your Blog – Sweepstakes Law or Are You a Giveaway Hustler? I can encourage them to visit to your site, and can ask a related question, but it cannot be a required for any entry.
For my part, I agree to do the following:
- To give an honest and helpful review of any item provided to me. Nothing is perfect, but I do focus on the positive as much as possible.
- To post the review on a Monday, unless circumstances keep me from my blog (personal issues, power outages, server mishaps). If so, I will still run it for 8 days.
- I will promote this giveaway on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn through my feeds and through relevant target audiences.
- I may promote this on linky lists and contest submission sites, if possible. Please note that this requires considerable work on my part, and I cannot guarantee that I will have the time to do this.
- I may promote any giveaway over $50 on Online-Sweepstakes.com.
If you are agreeable to that, please contact me about the giveaway and I will check to see if the product fits my audience, my values, and we can get started. Thank you for considering Mom-Blog!
