Here at Smiley360, we love our community–which is why we set aside some time each month to recognize and appreciate the members who help make our community the amazing place it is.

This month, Rachel U. caught our attention, between all of her great activity within the Smiley community, to her amazing sharing on her Smiley Missions. So, we’ve decided to get to know her a little better!

Here’s what we’ve learned about Rachel:

How long have you been a Smiley member, and what’s your favorite thing about being a part of the Smiley360 community?

I’ve been a member for about a year now. I love being a part of the Smiley360 community because it gives me an opportunity to test new products and share my experience with other members in the community as well as with the brand!

What has been your favorite Smiley Mission ever, and why?
My favorite Mission so far has to be the My M&M’S® Mission I participated on. I was able to personalize M&M’S® for my husband! This Mission was so much fun because it was so personal and unique!

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

My favorite way to share is definitely on Facebook. I also like to share my experience with the Smiley360 community on the Brand Connect Sharing Tool.

When you try out brand 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?
I feel it’s important for brands to listen to their consumers so they can make necessary product improvements.

What is your best tip for sharing quality posts when you’re on a Mission?

My best tip for sharing a quality photo is to take your picture in a well-lit area and have a nice backdrop. It’s important to pair your picture with an honest review whether it’s good or bad, focus on the product, and don’t include unnecessary claims.

What brands or products would you love to see on an upcoming Mission?
I would love to see more skin care products!

We love getting to know our members better. Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
When it comes to my clothes, shoes, and bags, I never pay full price for them – I always search for a bargain!
