Pollen-8 recommends to all Influencers receiving free products for review from our Brands that they include advertising disclosures per these guidelines: FTC Online Advertising Disclosure Guidelines and Additional FTC Online Advertising and Marketing Resources. If you are using the Pollen-8 network in a self-service format, you will be responsible for ensuring that all reviews include a disclosure. In all other cases, Pollen-8 will ensure a disclosure exists at the time of receipt.
As a matter of fact, yes. The FTC typically will go after the Brand, not the Influencer, in most circumstances, but the blogger is responsible for following these FTC guidelines. Click here for FTC Advertising Disclosure Guidelines and Additional FTC Online Advertising and Marketing Guidelines.
We understand that there are times when PayPal is not an option. If payment by check is preferable, contact us to make arrangements. Please note that checks must be received before the campaign can be published. Once payment has been received, Pollen-8 will confirm authorization to submit your campaign. You will simply select "Custom Plan" when you are ready. Total amount will show as $0.00 or free because payment was already received.
Your account will be charged when your campaign is submitted. Changes or cancellations may not be made within 24 hours of publication.
Yes, we have a number of discounts available, mostly for frequency. Custom packages may be created for a Brand having needs that fall outside the rate packages offered.
Through our secure site, we accept all methods of payment through PayPal.
We strongly believe in and respect the integrity of our reviewers. While some influencers may choose to inform you in advance of negative aspects of a review, they are not required to.
For the most part Pollen-8 influencers live in the U.S., though we do have some influencers in Canada. Be sure to check the influencer’s profile for their location or state your restriction in your influencer requirements.
Responses will be sent directly and immediately to your dashboard so you can view them in an organized way, as often as you'd like. You will also be alerted via email.
No. Compensation arrangements may vary based on the value of the Influencer. If compensation is mentioned in the campaign, whether it is product or financial, the Brand is responsible for negotiating that with the Influencer unless the campaign is fully managed by the Pollen-8 services team or an agency.
That is entirely up to the Brand and often times will depend on the product. We can fully integrate with most affiliate tracking platforms as well for your convenience.
Pollen-8 influencers are excited about reviewing products and your product must be interesting to them. You may decide to send product to those outside of your ideal reviewer or you can use our custom email format to further promote your product through product discounts.
Pollen-8 is open to all types of influencers . Influencers with a strong social media following may be very valuable.
That’s entirely up to you unless you have selected a plan that limits the number of reviews you will receive.
It is very important that you select through our system. Influencers will not be able to post their review information through Pollen-8 if that step is not completed and you may not know if your product or service has been reviewed.
You get several options from which to gently let the influencer down including a choice for you to write a custom email notification.
It’s always possible that you don’t come to a mutual arrangement with a selected influencer. You might want to keep a few as a B list.
Once you select your influencers you should communicate with them from your email to theirs.
Pollen-8 influencers are enthusiastic, but response can depend on the type of product and the specificity of the influencer requirements.
You’ll want to leave a few days to select and connect with influencers, mail samples (if applicable) and leave some time for your influencers to try out your product and write a review. It’s important to note influencers who miss your published deadline will not be able to post links through our site.
Customers wishing to terminate a multiple plan of three or more Pollen-8 campaigns that has been purchased can do so by contacting us in writing. Customers will be refunded a rate that matches best with the number of campaigns that have not yet been published.
