Ok I have gotten swamped with PR companies wanting me to advertise tons, If its a site that I think has merrit to my readers I have no problem writing something up. Same thing with reviews, I dont charge for them and dont plan on it as long as I receive a sample products and/or the sponsor pay for shipping. But There have been some lately that I just have zero intrest in doing. They are not products/services that I think go with my blog. The question is then how do you tactfully say no. I am never good at saying no to begin with but how do you respond? Right now I have an email I need to reply to but im not sure how, I dont want to ignore it,and I dont want to bite the hand that feeds me.The company may have something in the future that I would love to work with them on. Thanks ladies!
Being a Mom with a store, I agree with the 'be honest' approaches shared below. It isn't in my best interest to spend the time and money to have you do a review of something that won't connect with your readers. Or, if there was something about my product, website, etc that needed improving, I would want to know.
