When I decided to start a website that discusses mens grooming, I promised myself that anything I wrote about would not be for sale. One of the goals I set out to accomplish with Her Chair His Hair was to discuss great products without any hinderance due to contractual agreements or paid for sponsorships and that is still an integral promise to myself and to you, my audience. Nobody likes feeling duped when they follow a suggestion on a new product or slighted when it does not achieve the desired result.
Working in retail had taught me many things but one being that a client will always return if you do not over promise or over sell. Gain their trust and you have a customer for life who will allow you to offer valuable insight and, in return, increase your sales. The companies that employed me were not thrilled by my tactics in the short term but over time saw a steady and constant increase in my sales numbers, referrals and returns. This also applies to my clients at Barba Men's Grooming Boutique and on set for my freelance work.
Right now I am writing out a contractual agreement between both you and I:
- Her Chair His Hair and any authors or guest bloggers will never promote a product that has not been used by the writer.
- I promise if there is ever a post about any company or product that has been paid for, our readers will be made aware, and we will still give an unbiased review.
- In tandem with that, I will always disclose all potential conflicts of interest.
- My responsibility is to you: I will always be fully accountable for anything that I post.
Cross my heart!
