We welcomed in the New Year with wonderful posts from YOU our amazing members! We love our community here at Smiley360—which is why we set aside some time each month to recognize and appreciate the members who help make Smiley the amazing place it is!

This month, Monica P. caught our attention with her great activity within the Smiley Community and her top noch sharing on Smiley Missions. So, we’ve decided to get to know her a little better!

Here’s what we’ve learned about Monica:

Q: How long have you been a Smiley Member and what’s your favorite thing about being a part of the Smiley360 Community?

A: I have been a Smiley Member since August 2016! I truly love the ability to test a product and let others know what I think about it. It’s also nice to get the chance to try products that I’ve never heard of before.

Q: What has been your favorite Smiley Mission ever and why?
A: My favorite Mission would have to be the Sleep Number Mission. The pillow I received and tested was amazing! I loved it so much that I actually bought another once since trying it.

Q: What is your favorite way to share on a Mission and why? 

A: My favorite way to share on a Mission is through Instagram and Twitter. I enjoy finding creative backgrounds and settings to take my pictures to share on Instagram and Twitter.

Q: When you try different brand’s products, your opinion counts not only for other consumers but also for the brand. Why do you feel it’s important for brands to listen to their consumers?
A: I feel it’s important for brands to listen to their consumers because when brands listen to their consumers, not only does it let them know if they’re happy with the product but it builds trust amongst their consumers. If consumers are happy, they stay loyal and I believe that’s every brand’s goal.

Q: What is your best tip for sharing quality posts when you’re on a Mission?                                         A: My best tip for creating a top quality post is to pair a high-quality photo with a well-written review. I think a high-quality photo shows the product in a creative and fun way. Also, be sure you don’t over edit your photo. A bright and clear photo looks better than a fuzzy, over-edited one.

Q: What brands or products would you love to see in an upcoming Mission?
A: I would love to see Missions for children’s products. As a new mom, I enjoy trying new products for my son, but I’d also love to see more products geared toward keeping moms happy too. More baby and beauty product would be great!

Q: We love getting to know our members better. Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
A: I recently became a mom last February.
