We invite the most trusted reviewers on Tomoson to post opinions about products on third-party websites. We invite influential reviewers who have a history of posting good-quality, helpful reviews.
Tomoson helps brands send out free or discounted products to our Influencers. Brands cannot influence, modify or edit the reviews, and influencers must give their honest opinion. This policy is made up of a set of rules for both influencers and brands.
Tomoson is designed to generate honest and unbiased product reviews. All opinions must be your own.
We do not allow our users to be compensated for honest star reviews as a task. This includes reviews that are part of a paid publicity package.
Tomoson is built to connect brands with relevant and influential people as well as micro influencers. When a free or heavily discounted product is sent to a influencer, they are not obliged to review it. However, most decide to write a review at their own discretion.
Promo codes received are for limited, one-time use only and should only be used to purchase one product unless otherwise stated by the Brand. Sharing your codes will lead to permanent removal from Tomoson.
When you are approved for a promotion/campaign, wait until you have received the product and have spent adequate time with it before posting a review.
You may not review items that can affect you financially in any way. This means, for example, that you cannot review an immediate family member’s or competitor’s product.
Reviews should include a disclosure stating that you received a free product in exchange for a review. Do not mention Tomoson, but please discuss the product. You must follow the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) 2009 Guidelines on Endorsements and 2013 Guidelines on Disclosures. To comply with the rules, you could say something like this: “I got this product for free/at a discount in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own.”
We allow businesses that are working with third party reviewers to give them their product for free or at a highly discounted rate (80% or higher).
We do not permit businesses to reimburse or offer payment to bloggers for third party website reviews. This includes giving the reviewer any compensation of any kind, including payment (whether in the form of money or gift certificates), entry to a contest or sweepstakes, bonus content, discounts on future purchases, extra product, or any other form of gifts.
Feel free to use our escrow system and offer bonus content when working with influencers that are not posting on third party websites
All products sent must be exactly the same as stated in your promotion. For example: If you create a promotion on Tomoson to send out a free, full-size laundry detergent, don’t send a small sample of the detergent. Do not detail a three-pack of something, or show pictures of it, if you are only offering a single item. Fake and misleading promotions are strictly forbidden and can lead to suspension of your promotion(s). We ask for honesty from our reviewers, and we expect the same from our brands.
Our reviewers make this platform what it is. They are willing to try your products and share their experience with others. We love our reviewers, and we expect our brands to love them too. Please treat reviewers with the best possible service, and let us know if there is anything you need from our customer service team.
We ask that you communicate with reviewers only about the product you have sent them. Please do not market additional products or services to Tomoson reviewers. Do not ask them to perform additional tasks, such as post information on social media. If you want to promote a new product, we ask that you run it through Tomoson.
Any product or coupon code must be shipped within 24 hours to be considered shipped.
