I am totally transparent about the creative content I post and where the input comes from.
Sometimes I work together with brands on sponsored posts. This means that we have an agreement on what sort of content I will be publishing (blogpost, video, Instagram post …) and that there are a few guidelines. It means I could also be rewarded with products and/or a remuneration. These kind of sponsored posts will always be disclosed with a sentence that points out the collaboration. Social media posts will show the hashtag #ad. However, it is not because something is sponsored that it is fake: I do not accept any offer that doesn’t apply to my personal style, I never work together with a brand that I don’t love and I never write about products/services I wouldn’t recommend.
Apart from sponsored agreements, brands also send me products for trial. There are no obligations on posting anything about these. I test everything that is sent to me and if I love the products and find them worthy to be shared with you, I absolutely will. Products that I don’t find interesting or that I don’t like at all, will never be featured. I always point out the fact that the product was sent to me by the brand. In a blogpost, I will write a declaring sentence and in video descriptions you will find an * before the product mentioned in the description box.
Next the sponsored ads, I am still a young girl who enjoys beauty shopping a lot. More than half of what you’ll see on Rusty Revolvers is chosen and bought by me with my own money.
Some of the links I feature on this website and on my YouTube channel are affiliate links. This means that I earn a small amount of money (like really, a tiny bit) when people show interest in the product I’ve featured through that specific link. It is an opportunity for me to keep track of statistics and my audience’s interests, and also gives me the chance to earn a bit of cash that I can use to invest in this blog. You do not pay any more because I used an affiliate link and it I never, ever abuse the use of them. If I use affiliate links I always add a declaring sentence to point that out.
For any more questions about sponsored posts or anything else, feel free to contact me. I’m always open for your questions!
