As part of your Smiley360 membership, you agree to always be honest, never mislead and always try to provide valuable and authentic opinions. Please take the time to read and understand disclosure and what it means for you.Disclosure simply means making it known that you have received a free product or brand experience as a Smiley360 member.
When you spread the word about a product you've received from us, you must clearly communicate that you were compensated with a free product in exchange for your honest review. An example of how you can do this is to include the following phrase in your review:"I received [product name] for free from Smiley360."Or you can simply add the hashtag(#) #freesamp to the end of your post:
"Loved trying [product name]. I would definitely recommend this. Check it out #freesamp"
We recommend using these hashtags(#) in all of your social media posts. Doing so will allow you to devote more space to your review without having to worry about character limits - allowing more of your voice to be heard.
When you share to Facebook and Twitter using the Single-Click Sharing(SM) tools located on your Mission Page, such a phrase will be included automatically. Some examples of where you should write this include Smiley Connect, Instagram, Pinterest, your personal blog, YouTube or on an online review site such as Amazon.
We will never tell you what to say about a product. You are free to speak from actual personal experience in your own words. Be sure to fully experience the product and take time to form your opinions. Your feedback matters, and people will listen to you. Disclosing that you have received a free product ensures that your opinions and reviews are seen as credible and trustworthy to your friends and network.
Disclosure is an important part of being a Smiley member. Disclosing that you have received a free product means you're following guidelines set by the Federal Trade Commission (we wouldn't want you to get in trouble!) Following these guidelines will help you to enjoy your Smiley membership and all that it brings.
Be heard. Be happy.
Smiley360 is an online community of influential consumers who try products and experiences for free and share their opinions with others. As a member, you will receive offers from the biggest brands and share your experience with that brand, as well as with friends, family, coworkers, neighbors and other consumers like you.
Smiley360 launched in December 2009 with one purpose. We wanted there to be more communication between consumers and the brands that they buy. As consumers, wouldn't it be great to get first access to new products and experiences, and to actually tell the brands what we think? And even better, wouldn't it be great to know that they are actually listening?
That's what we hope to achieve with Smiley360—to give regular people the chance to try new things and share their opinions with the world. Think of us as your link to the brands you consume every day. This is marketing for the modern world, and we all have a voice! Be Heard. Be Happy.
Do you love to try new products and services? Have you ever tried a product and thought, "This would be so much better if..." As a Smiley member, you can provide this kind of feedback directly to the source, as well as share with the people in your life, both online and offline. Smiley members get inside and exclusive looks at new brands, new products, and new online content—how cool is that?

• You care about the products you consume in your daily life • You want to give feedback directly to your favorite brands • You believe that your opinion on products should be heard • You like to try before you buy • You want to be the person your friends turn to for advice on what products to buy
