I have always said that it is my goal to promote natural hair businesses because they are serving a niche market that I happen to be a part of. This year my goal is to get as many diverse companies to giveaway products and therefore get the near 80,000 or so people who come to this blog every month to see what is out there and whether it is worth buying or not.
I have found that while 90% of businesses that approach me are genuine, there is a minority of some strange, mildly dodgy responses that I receive:
-I do consider it dodgy to not have the business owner and location named on your site.
-I do consider it dodgy to have a super professional site and several testimonials if you have been operating for just a month.
-I also have some businesses where google brings up a slew of really terrible reviews including things that are potentially dangerous like mould in newly ordered products! Yet oddly enough, these companies are still running!
- I do consider it odd to have the owner of a company taking a confrontational approach to criticism (Odd though not dodgy as anyone in UK will tell you all about multimillionaire Michael O'Leary who does not mind calling his customers the fword).
I am wondering, what is your criteria for purchasing from a business? Give me your answers in the poll to right!
Do you read or care for reviews?
