Sometimes as bloggers we get jobs in that just hiccup from the moment we get it. Recently, that happened to me and so I sat and thought about what I would do if I were the one in charge of PR. The first thing I did was email the PR company to let them know what I did to fix the issue (The store was out of product).
I took my photo and based my post on the fact that the product was flying off the shelves and to get yours while you could. I basically made the best out of a bad situation. I emailed the PR Company who told me to go with what I had because they felt the link to the company was most important.
My point is there are so many times as bloggers that we must improvise and we need to think out of the box. When in doubt email the person in charge of the campaign. You’re not bothering them and that is their job. I used to always be hesitant because I don’t like bothering people but in doing so I didn’t help myself any.
Get a bad product in the mail for review? Give it to a friend or family member to try. They may love it and you may get a whole new spin on the subject. As bloggers we there is so much we can do to come off positive and with out lying. Don’t get me wrong there are those circumstances that we must leave a bad review or unfavorable responses but sometimes we can avoid them.
