My husband was in work release and I had trouble finding my way and finding happiness. It seems silly but getting a small sample free in the mail really helped.
Sampling is a great way to get your feet wet. Most samples just require you to fill out a short form with your address and name. In a few weeks, whatever it is will show up at your home.
I had days where I got boxes of stuff and an overflowing mailbox. The thing is though, i kept seeing people getting actual full sized items...for free!
They say it is a lot of work, they warn you about it, but when you are on the outside, it doesn't matter. Life seems so much greener on that side.
Don't get me wrong, I really love what i do, but you can get lost in this world, swallowed up, if you will. Businesses and even other reviewers can be brutal. If you want into this game, you have to know what you are doing.
There are many sites I am sure, but I have been faithful to Tomoson.com since I started. They have a few issues, but nothing you can't overcome.
The main problem is Amazon. They have a bit of a monopoly over the review game, but companies took the blow like champs and found other ways for us to help them.
One major thing you should have if you want to reviiew, is a blog. It seems like a lot of work (and they are) but they really help to get the name out, so businesses can find you.
We have a page on pretty much every social media outlet you can think of. Everyday, is promoting this page or that one, reviewing, and stressing about what you could have done better.
You can review, just take it slow. You may want to jump in with a new fan or tv, but pay your dues and protect that face with face serums. In a few months, you should be getting some amazing items.
Basically, all you have to do is find the right reviewing site, set up and promote yourself and your pages, and the best advice I can give, find someone who has been doing this for years, they can answer any questions you need to know!!
