Product Reviews
Product reviews are welcome on I am the Maven®. Feel free to contact us to see where your product or company would be a good fit and to send samples of your product (note: must be a full sized product, a full sized product” is generally recognized as the way in which consumer would purchase the product.). In most cases, product of value must be a minimum of $150.00

Discounts and coupons are not considered compensation for reviews. We can also not review a product from photos, please do not ask us to.

If we encounter a problem or issue with your sample we will let you know privately. Unless other arrangements have been made, all products sent for review are kept by the owners of and not returnable.  A majority of our review products are donated to the local school district or organizations that work with the special needs community. Please note that unless previously discussed, please allow an average 6-8 weeks for all reviews AFTER receipt of the product. Some reviews may take longer,especially if the product is used outdoors and we need to take photos (we deal with unpredictable weather year round!) **No fees are charged for Product Reviews as long as a full size product is provided in compensation. One link will be provided to the sponsors website. We may include affiliate links or ads as we see fit.

Giveaways are great way to generate excitement about your company or product.  We offer integration of social media outlets such as promotion of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other areas into your giveaways.

Typically all giveaways are accompanied by a review due to the effectiveness of this combination.  However if you would prefer to do a giveaway only, we can provide a company or product overview in lieu of a review.  Please contact us for our fees for our Giveaway only services.

All prizes in sponsored giveaways should a new product and  be sent directly to the winner within 30 days. Unless other arrangements have been agreed upon, we do not ship prizes to winners. The Maven is not responsible for lost or misdirected prizes to winners.
