In this day and age, where children and their parents tend to be quite disconnected from each other, either because the parents work long hours or the children spend more and more time online and using social media, making time to spend with your children is becoming very important. Planning quality time and activities…
If you're like me you cannot live without headphones. I use them practically all day long. It's part habit, part practicality, and part comfort. Headphones help me concentrate on whatever it is I'm doing without hearing everything else that is going on. Even though it is best to know what is going on…
I desperately need advise, I have two sponsors that have not fulfilled giveaway prizes. They will not respond to emails and do not have phone numbers listed, how do I rectify the situation?
One of the sponsors told me prizes were being shipped on 12/10 and I have not heard anything since. The other was suppose to ship on 12/13, finally responded back to me on the 1st stating she was busy and forgot. She asked for the winners email to personally apologize and offer a substitution (since it was a holiday item). The winner still has not heard anything from her.
I can not afford to purchase these items for the winners myself, nor want to put additional money in their pockets. What do I do?
Man, that stinks! Can you possibly send a consolation prize like a small Amazon gift card or something else along with your apologies to the winners? I am sure that they will understand if you explain the situation.
Give the giveaway winner a way to contact the giveaway person so you can both get on harrassing them to fulfill their obligation? I don't know...if it doesn't get resolved soon, I'd apologize and be really honest & make them realize that it isn't your fault.
Other than continuing to harass the people providing the giveaway, what else can you really do?
This, of course, is coming from a girl that hasn't quite completed her first giveaway...so grain of salt...
Put a disclaimer on your site that says if a sponsor fails to ship a prize that you will send them the next unclaimed prize on your site (or whatever you want to do) so that you aren't personally responsible.
And I would absolutely put a post on my blog apologizing for your sponsor not fulfilling their commitment. Just seems crazy to me, we blogger spread things like this like wildfire. It could really hurt a small company.
