Hey guys here’s an interesting one for you!
Todays review is about To Die For Swimwear
I approached them to ask if they wanted me to promote them, they forwarded me onto another person who said I could do a giveaway if I liked. The staff member sent me images and the text to write in a post and said that if I was to receive a free bikini for my hard work I needed 300 people to join my giveaway. I had over 200 people enter. They never once gave me a list of rules to follow. I’ve check the emails 3 times!
I shared my giveaway all over instagram and lost access to several features in the process because I use it A LOT already so doing this giveaway put extra strain on my usage. Many of my followers shared the giveaway as well!
My followers informed me that they were told to stop spamming because I was disqualified already. They never told me I was disqualified at all. In fact – I’m still waiting for a reply to my email asking why I as disqualified.
It was the worst blogging and social media decision I have made so far, they practically got a whole days’ worth of free publicity out of me for nothing. Today they gained at least 200,000 followers from their giveaways which were held all over instagram.
I am deeply saddened that I wasn’t properly informed of all the “rules” they expected me to follow. It was a poorly orchestrated promotional event and I will definitely be more careful of doing this in the future! I will not be holding anymore giveaways.
Unfortunately this means I will never work with them again, and I’m sorry to all those who asked – I’m not reviewing their products either. While they do donate money to help with eating disorders I will not support them or buy from them.
