So the past couple of months I have been completely out of love with my blog, twitter and even my own instagram – these days I’m on mills instagram and that’s about it, mostly because I can go on there and still give her all the attention she wants but when trying to write a post or be on the laptop it’s not so easy and I’ve slowly lost my love for blogging, but I want to get back into it, I want to do something for me again. So here I am.
Today I’ve written up a post about the small businesses we work with over on instagram.
Mila and I have been chosen by a couple of small businesses on Instagram to be Brand Reps or Product Testers for them, to which we are both super excited about. Over the next couple of weeks/months I want to dedicate a post here on each of them, but first I just wanted to give you guys a bit of info on what a Brand Rep and Product Tester is and who we are repping for so you can head over and check them out.
First off, we want to say thank you to all the businesses that have chosen us to represent them and we love working with you all.
I’m sure most of you know what Brand Reps and Products Testers are but for anyone who is unsure I’ll give you a quick low down –
Brand Rep: A Brand Rep is someone who will promote products from a brand in order to help that brand gain new custom, whether it be by taking photos, blog posts, instagram stories. Your Rep term will usually last 3 months.
You may be required to make a purchase within your term or you may be gifted items to promote, each small business will vary but they will inform you of the terms within the original search post.
The Brand Rep will usually get given a personal discount code to use (roughly about 20%), they will also be given a discount code to give out to family, friends and followers (usually around 10% discount) again these amounts may vary depending on the business.
Product Tester: This is similar to being a Brand Rep only you’re not in it for any length of time. You will either receive a product for free or at a discounted price in return for testing out the product and reviewing it for the businesses.
Then it’s all down to interaction and social media. It makes it easier if you do have some products from the business you are representing. You then take photos of the items, or general photos with the items in view somewhere and help promote the business.
Here are the businesses Mila and I are have been supporting.

Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be hopefully posting individual posts for each of these businesses with photos and reviews of their products, but for now you can click the links above and check out their businesses.
I’d love to hear about the small businesses you have and work with.
