As a valued Vocalpoint member, you will receive lots of gifts. Vocalpoint gifts come in many forms, from smart advice, tips, and interesting stories from your fellow community members to exclusive information about new products, brands, and services. You are never obligated to share these gifts with others, but many of our Vocalpoint ladies are born sharers, so if you do get a hankering to share, here are a few guidelines we encourage you to consider:
The Golden Rule: Never Feel Pressure to Share.
We send our members free samples of products and cou pons. We only work with brands and companies we trust, so when you get a special something from Vocalpoint, we have every reason to think you (and your friends) will love it. That’s why we include extra coupons whenever we can. However, there’s no need to feel like you have to distribute those coupons and share what we send you with your friends. Whether you share or not, you're still a valuable Vocalpoint member and your choice to share has absolutely no impact on whether you'll get additional coupons or products from us in the future.
Let people know you’re a VP member.
If you choose to tell your friends about a product we told you about, be sure to mention that you're a Vocalpoint member. If you received a coupon or sample from us, mention that too. That way everything’s above board. Will a coupon or free sample cause you to gush about a product that you don't really like? Probably not. But your friends should know the deal.
Stick to the facts.
Believe it or not, brands spend a lot of time with lawyers discussing what they can and can't say about their products. If what the brand is saying relates to the performance, makeup or intended uses of the product, they have to be able to prove it somehow. So, if we tell you that 'Brand A cleans twice as fast' or 'Brand X works better than Brand Y,' you can expect that it is a proven fact and it's OK to share with your friends. However, you shouldn't say that 'Brand X works better than all other products.' If it can't be proven or it isn't an intended use of the product, you shouldn't say it even if you think it may be true.
Your personal experiences matter.
Your opinion and your experience with a product is fair game. Good or bad, love it or hate it — it's OK to tell people what you really thought about a product we sent you. In fact, that's what we hope you do. It's also OK to tell people how the product worked for you. For example, it's fine to say 'it didn't clean my skillet' or 'it made my hair smell great.' While facts have to be proven, your opinion and your experience are uniquely your own and uniquely valuable, especially to your friends and people who trust you to give them the straight scoop.
Keep it real, ladies.
Please don’t post anything—photos, videos, etc.—that aren’t yours. Meaning: if you didn’t take the photo, don’t post it.
And finally…don’t sell Vocalpoint Goodies on Ebay, or anywhere else.
The vast majority of our wonderful members already know this, so this goes out to the rebellious few: please don’t sell Vocalpoint Goodies—they are only for you and your friends (or family, of course).
