The Culture Mom does accept compensation, in the form of paid posts, sponsorships, advertising, products and media trips. We will always let the reader know when content is sponsored, related to advertising or is based on a relationship that we may have with a brand. However, many of our articles are not compensated opportunities, and in that case, we do not have a disclosure.
Expected compensation is always be clearly stated at the end of a post that mentions a product or event. We tend to only work with companies that we feel are in synergy with our blog’s goals.
Since we review cultural events and travel primarily, we accept press tickets. We always make that clear in our posts, whether the tickets are for us or as a giveaway in a contest featured on our blog. We do not promise the promoter any particular opinion and keep our posts honest and unbiased.
Lastly, the Culture Mom does not typically review products unless the products has a clear connection to our brand.
