Ten Secrets Every Smiley Member Should Know

Read how to create the best quality content—and why it matters

banner

You may wonder what the point of all this is—how can Smiley360 send you products absolutely free in exchange for reviewing and sharing about what you received? The answer is simple: your opinions matter.

When you’re on a Mission to share something with friends and family, you are making a powerful impact on the consumer market. After all, 92% of people trust a friend’s recommendation over any other form of advertising.

Not only are the people in your own network reading and listening to what you have to say, the brands are listening too. Everything you do on a Mission—every review, post, tweet, photo, video and Face2Face conversation—is seen by the brand that provided you with a free product. Brands really want to know what you have to say about their products, and they intently read, view and learn from every piece of content you create on a Mission.

Ten Secrets Every Smiley Member Should Know

A top Smiley member is someone who puts effort into the quality of content s/he creates. To share content that’s helpful to both consumers and brands, and ensure you will continue to receive more Smiley Missions, check out our top tips for making the most of your Missions:

Be Honest

honest

Take the time to share thoughtful, honest and authentic reviews about the products you receive from Smiley360. If you loved a product, shout it from the rooftops! If you didn’t love a product, say so—just be constructive with your feedback and talk about how the brand could make changes to improve.

Be Detailed

detailed

Always write a detailed account of your experience. Try to share a review that says more than just “I love it!” or “This is great”—vague reviews are not helpful to other consumers wanting to learn about your experience. Ask yourself questions like these and you’ll never be stuck on what to say:

  • What did you like and dislike?
  • Which flavors/varieties/scents did you enjoy the most? And the least?
  • What flavors/varieties/scents should be made next?
  • What do others need to know before buying this product?
  • What benefits, if any, has it brought to your life?

Be Transparent

transparent

For every action you take on a Mission, you should always make it known that you have received a free product or brand experience. When you use the Smiley360 Sharing Tools, we’ll take care of this for you. But when sharing your opinions on other places, such as in a blog post, video or an in-person conversation, make sure that every person knows you have received something for free. You can read more about this by clicking on ‘Disclosure’ at the bottom of any page on Smiley360.

Be Mindful Of Your Audience

mindfulofaudience

Remember that when you share using the Sharing Tools on your Mission Page, your content can be seen by Smiley360, the brand, your friends, other Smiley members and other consumers too. Don’t let that hold you back—this should inspire you to share content with quality and substance.

Be Visual

bevisual

Create photos and videos on your Missions. A picture paints a thousand words, and photos and videos are a great way to share about what you received. Just don’t submit photos or videos that are not relevant to the Mission, and don’t submit content that you did not create yourself.

Shout-Out To The Brand

shoutouttobrand

If you mention the brand in your reviews, photos, videos and posts, you have a chance of being featured by the brand in their advertising, social media channels and more. However, please don’t mention or show other brands in your content, such as a brand’s competitor. Try to talk about and show just one brand when you post.

Earn Those Points

earnpoints

Earn all the points you can on each and every Smiley Mission you accept. When you earn points, you’re showing us that you’re a good sharer and you will continue to be offered Missions! But don’t share just to get the points. Occasionally, we will see someone typing gibberish or copying text from somewhere else into the Sharing Tools. Smiley360 Community Managers reading your posts will flag anyone who is clearly trying to game the system—and sadly, this does happen!

Be Social

besocial

Connect your Facebook and Twitter profiles to Smiley360. Being connected will move you to the top of the line when it comes to sending out offers for new Missions. Just make sure it’s a real social media account with real friends and followers. Fake social media accounts get flagged, which affects the number of offers you receive.

Stay Up-To-Date

uptodate

Keep your Smiley account up to date by completing your profile, taking surveys and completing your Missions. That way, you’ll always get the offers that are the right fit for you. And when you’re on a Mission, look out for emails from Smiley360 with the latest need-to-know updates.

We’re Here To Help

Ask for help if you need it. We’re always an email away at hello@smiley360.com!

Facebook, Twitter and Your Smiley Missions

 

Smiley360 Membership Guide

Nice to see you again! We hope you appreciated our post last week (in case you missed it, you can catch up here.) Today, we’re looking at the Facebook and Twitter Sharing Tools and how and why to use them.

So without further ado, let’s dive right in…

The Power of Facebook

We think it’s safe to assume that you’re one of over a billion people with a Facebook account, and that you use it to stay connected with friends and family both near and far. It’s a great way to stay in touch and keep people updated with what you’re doing, including what latest brands you’re putting to the test!

When you make it onto a new Mission, you can immediately start sharing your excitement of being on a new Mission, and tell your Facebook friends about the product you’re going to receive. Continue reading

Missions, Points & Badges—Smiley360 Explained

 

Smiley360 Membership Guide

Smiley members like you often come to us in a confused state, looking for answers to questions about how it all works and how to get more Missions—so we’re here to clear things up!

Each week for the next nine weeks, we’ll post a lesson about a different Smiley-related topic, aimed at helping you get more value out of your Smiley360 membership.

So what’s it all about? Allow us to start from the beginning…

The idea behind Smiley360 is to give regular consumers like you and me a chance to have a say about the brands we all use every day. We send you a free product and in return you write a review and share your experience with friends.

It’s a two-way street! The brand gets feedback on its products and you get to try before you buy and let friends know if a product is worth their hard-earned money.

Rewarding You With Points

Naturally, we try to reward the Smiley members who hold up their end of the bargain by providing that feedback. Sounds easy, right?
