Have you heard about the Makeover Momma shop, but aren’t sure what it is or why it was created? After many recent disputes regarding bloggers who monetize, writers who create online resources (or even the company the has helped create my shop, Open Sky), I decided it was time to speak up. If you are a writer who is thinking about being a shopkeeper with Open Sky (or a supplier who wants to offer your goods), this is a little inside perspective on why I choose to offer products through my website, and some common myths that I’d like to dispute.
Do you still have questions about the Makeover Momma shop, and want some answers? Keep reading…
1. Is the Makeover Momma shop an affiliate program?
I get approached to do affiliate programs almost daily, and I have always been completely terrified of them. You know those people who start telling you about their job, and by the time they’re done: they’ve pushed as much merchandise down your throat as possible, and are trying to sign you up for a new career? I am phobic of those kind of people (and have never had any skills at “selling”).
Trust me, there is no inner hierarchy going on with the Makeover Momma shop. It is just that… a shop (plain and simple). I choose items I love, I add them to my shop, and I provide them for readers. And that’s it!
2. Can I request items in your shop?
You most certainly can! Although there is no guarantee what the policies are of a particular brand, you can always provide feedback, request a certain type of product or voice your suggestions at any point in time. I will always answer back (firstname.lastname@example.org).
3. What if I need help using a product or treatment?
Perhaps one of the most amazing things about creating the Makeover Momma shop through Open Sky, is it truly gives me the freedom to help you out and work with you on a personal basis. Instead of stressing out over issues like stocking my virtual shelves, I can spend time talking with you, answering questions or even providing personal services (for example, a workout video to show you how to use new equipment). It’s this easy: if you have a question, a need, or a request, let me know. I’ll help you out!
4. What is an easy way I can try products in your shop?
The easiest way to jump in and try new products is by hosting (or co-hosting) a Makeover Madness party. We launch new sets of parties each month, and all a host has to do is order one small item from the shop (along with her 8 to 10 guests), and we ship hundreds of dollars worth of FREE products and swags from our sponsors. For example, this past month a guest or host paid an average of $12 per person, yet received over $850 worth in free products to try, enjoy and share with their friends (per party package). Since I created it as a mom (for moms and women), it really is an amazing concept, and 100% worth it! (For more information on hosting, just comment below).
