Media Kit

The Creative Cassie Media Kit


Creative Cassie is a PR Friendly Blog owned by Cassie Smith.  I am currently accepting Family Friendly items for review and giveaway.  You can contact me at cassiesgiveaways{at}yahoo{dot}com if you have an item you'd like me to review.


Reviews

  • Reviews are conducted FREE of charge. (We just need the product or paid service!)
  • We review family-friendly items (clothes, beauty products, games, books, movies, food, household goods, etc.).
  • All products sent for reviews are mine to keep or donate and will not be returned.
  • We ask that you provide a full sized product, not a sample size. We want to provide accurate reviews and feedback on your products, so we must be able to use them multiple times and in the same fashion as we would if we had purchased it ourselves.
  • We are not responsible for any shipping charges for review products.
  • Reviews will include product details, links back to your site, pictures (ones you provide and/or ones of our family using your product).  You are responsible for providing me with links, background/bio information, and high resolution images if this information is not readily available on your website.  All posts will be shared on Twitter and Facebook.
  • All reviews will be completed and posted within 3-4 weeks of receiving your product/service, unless otherwise noted or agreed upon. 
  • We will send you an email to confirm receipt of your product and an estimated posting date. We will send you an email with the link to the review once it has been posted.
  • In the case of a negative review, we will contact you by email prior to posting and you have the option to decline the review post. We recognize that honest feedback is helpful in order to improve products, but we do not want to speak poorly about products or services in a way that could be perceived as harmful. An overall positive review may still contain constructive criticism and/or suggestions for improvement.

Reviews and Giveaways


Although not required, we highly recommend doing a review AND giveaway as this will provide the most exposure for your product.


Giveaways

  • Sponsors are responsible for mailing the giveaway prize to the winner. Please do not mail the giveaway prize to us along with the review product. We will provide the sponsor with the necessary information in order to get the prize to the winner
  • Please inform us what the prize is (especially if it varies from the review product) when setting up the giveaway and let us know who is eligible to enter: US, Canada or Worldwide.
  • Giveaways will begin upon posting and run for 14 days unless otherwise noted or agreed upon.
  • Giveaways will be promoted within the blog, as well as on Twitter, Facebook, and various giveaway blogs/linkys.
  • We will select the giveaway winner randomly and notify them by email. When they reply back, we will forward you their shipping information and any other product selection information that may be needed.
  • The mandatory entry will usually require our readers to visit your site and identify an item they like.
  • We can ask our readers to “like” your Facebook page, follow you on Twitter, subscribe by email to your newsletter, etc. for bonus entries. However, per Facebook rules we cannot ask the reader to take an action on Facebook for an entry, such as commenting on your wall.
  • We cannot ask our readers to make a purchase for bonus entries as this violates FTC regulations. Purchases cannot increase odds of winning per Sweepstakes Law.
  • We ask that you ship the prize to the giveaway winner within a reasonable amount of time after the giveaway ends.

Advertising


Advertising spaces can be purchased on Creative Cassie.  All ads will be posted in the side bar.  The company is responsible for providing graphics for their own advertisement.  Advertising rates are $5/month, $12/three months, or $20/six months for a 125x125 sized button.  If you're interested, please email me at cassiesgiveaways{at}yahoo{dot}com.

If you're providing an item for review, you will receive a free month of advertising space!

Adjustments in rates may be made at the discretion of Creative Cassie.  All prior rate agreements will be honored for their duration.
