Sampling Campaigns offer brands the ability to send out multiple products to users, 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.
