PR Guidelines

If you have a product or service you would like to submit for potential review on The Review Stew, I would love to hear from you! I can help bring visibility to your product - do a review, host a giveaway or suggest a project we can work on together!

If you are interested in an honest product review or would like to sponsor a giveaway please CONTACT ME HERE! I am interested in all types of products and books for adults and children. I love to find, receive, and share new products and great companies I believe in with my readers!

Please read the guidelines listed below and contact me if you have any questions! I’d be more than happy to consider your proposal.


Review Guidelines
I will write an honest, clear review of the product(s) you have provided with nofollow links. Topics covered in my review may include but are not limited to:  

- A description of the product and the company
- Nofollow Links to product and company website
- My experience with the product, positive or negative
- My opinions on the product
- Quality
- Price
- My experience with your company
- Photos or video, either my own or those provided by your company
- Submission of the review to several networking sites and forums.

All products submitted MUST be appropriate for a family friendly website. All products must have at least a value of $30 to be considered for review. 

Please be aware that I CANNOT review items based solely on photos, brochures, or websites — I actually have to use the products I review in order to give our readers our honest, thoughtful opinion. A sample MUST be provided and be the correct size, color, etc that I requested so that it can be reviewed properly and fully for my readers. Products supplied to me for the review must be full size and become the property of The Review Stew and will not be returned, no matter if they are chosen to be reviewed or not. All items must also be in the original packaging and unopened. I do not pay for shipping for products to be shipped to me or shipped back if they are the wrong item or not chosen to be reviewed. Personalized items must be personalized for me.

Product samples are not returned and submitting a sample does not guarantee I will post a review on it. I have the right to refuse a review/giveaway for any reason, at any time. However, please be aware that I do have a great success rate due to the fact that I thoroughly pre-screen the submissions and offers.

If you are unable to submit a sample, I have a variety of affordable advertising opportunities or sponsored posts. All links must be nofollow links. 


Giveaway Guidelines
The Review Stew is thrilled to be a part of your giveaway opportunities. A review can also include a giveaway. Giveaways tend to draw more interest and potential customers!

I do not send my product (that I received for review) as the giveaway prize. Products I received to review are mine to keep and another product must be provided to the winner of the giveaway. I do ask that all giveaway product be retained by the sponsor until the giveaway is over. I DO NOT send out the giveaway prizes. I will work with you to customize the giveaway as you like. A typical Review Stew Giveaway simply requires a comment that serves as an entry and I select the winner with the help of Random.org.

I will not require my readers to "like" a company's Facebook or Twitter pages as a mandatory entry because 1) it is against Facebook policy (see https://www.facebook.com/promotions_guidelines.php) and not all my readers have Facebook and Twitter and I want to make it fair to all my readers to enter my contests.


Once a winner has been selected, I will contact you with the shipping information of the winner so you may ship their prize directly to their door. It’s that simple!

If you sponsor a giveaway as well as the review, the following guidelines apply:

1. A review according to the guidelines listed above

2. Additional promotion on networking sites and directories.

3. Prior to the start of the giveaway you must tell me if there are any restrictions on mailing the prize.

4. At the conclusion of the giveaway, I will submit the name and mailing address to you. You will be responsible for providing the prize directly to the winner.

5. Entry requirements may include visiting your company’s website, promoting the giveaway in some form (Twitter, Facebook, personal blog, etc.), becoming a fan of the company and anything else I deem appropriate. Please feel free to offer suggestions.
