Frequently asked questions
What is Peopletail?
There’s nothing quite like Peopletail -- it’s a one-of-a-kind product review community, an online hub where people can shop, share, experience and learn. Peopletail works with Brand and Retailers to help them collect reviews at-scale through a community of users who love to publish and share unbiased, fun and creative ways they use their products.
What makes Peopletail different?
There’s a lot that sets Peopletail apart. For one, all your reviews become shoppable, and you can earn rewards for purchases others make thanks to your review. When you join Peopletail, you create your own profile page where you can include photos, videos and descriptions, about how you use certain products that will inspire and educate others. Your profile page serves as your personal store, brand and shopping platform for others.
What sets Peopletail apart is that it’s not a community made up of sponsored, directed content creators -- it’s populated by everyday people who are committed to sharing reviews, making recommendations and developing unique, exclusive content. At Peopletail, brands don’t tell us who they are -- consumers and users do!
Is there any cost to join?
There are no hidden fees, no membership dues, and no cost to upload content. Peopletail is absolutely free to use.
How do I update my profile page (photo / bio / social links)?

What is the difference between Challenges, Sampling, Licensing and Sponsored Campaigns?
Challenges are contests that are created to call upon people to submit products, as well as accompanying ideas on how to use them. People can choose what Challenges to participate in, depending on what’s relevant to their lives. Users have the opportunity to win products or gift cards, depending on the type of challenge entered.
Sampling campaigns offer brands the ability to send out multiple products to users (Supernova’s), who will get to try and publish honest reviews of the products. The type of review -- whether it’s written, still photographed or captured on video -- will be at the discretion of the user.
Licensing campaigns allow brands to obtain the commercial rights to use photos and videos from our users in their own marketing campaigns. We offer a simple process to download users’ original photos and videos.
Sponsored campaigns allow brands to hire specific users for product review campaigns. Brands are invited to provide a creative brief on what they would like users to complete for the review. Users must approve all campaign requests prior to agreement. For consumer transparency and awareness purposes, sponsored reviews are denoted as “Sponsored” on Peopletail.
