Got Reviews? Send them in for a Chance to Win!

For quite some time (actually an embarrassingly long time) I've been meaning to put together a reviews section on the website. I would like there to be a place where you could go to read reviews of scents and the products as well.

Right now, there is a place in each product listing where members of my website (people that have signed up for a free customer account and are logged in) can leave and read product reviews. Since I now use drop down menus for the scent choices instead individual product listings for each scent, there is no where for reviews of the scents themselves to be left.

This will be my project for the New Year! I want to compile a list of reviews (both for the scents and the products) into one page so you can view them quickly and easily. I can't promise this will happen very fast since my little ones are now very mobile and need lots of attention.

I need your help!
Send me your reviews and you'll be entered in the monthly drawing! For every review you send me, your name will be dropped into a bowl. You get an entry for each scent or product you review! In the beginning of each month, I'll draw a name from the bowl and that person will get a $25.00 Wylde Ivy gift certificate! The more reviews you send me, the more chances you'll have of winning.

Just a few rules.
Of coarse there are always rules. I need helpful, informative reviews. I won't honor reviews that simply say "I like it" or "It didn't work for me". Tell me (or actually the readers why you liked it, what notes you smell, what is smells like to you, or how it makes you feel. I'm doing this for my customers so they can get a better grasp of the scents before ordering. Please only write reviews for scents and products you have actually tried. I am planning more contests for 2009 that will be open to all (both long time Wylde Ivy customers and for people who have never tried Wylde Ivy). I reserve the right to reject entries if I feel that they are being written by someone who has not smelled or tried the product. By submitting your review, you are giving me permission to post your review on my website, newsletter, Etsy shop, Myspace, and/or Blog. When I post the reviews I will use only your first name. If you prefer to remain an anonymous contributor please let me know when you submit your reviews.

Be as creative and eloquent as you like!
I know sometimes I just have so many things going on at once that I don't leave enough energy for describing my scents. I love all my little scent creations and sometimes I just do not do the little guys justice with my descriptions! If I really love your review I may use it in the scent descriptions! If I do, you will automatically get a $25.00 gift certificate plus your name will still be dropped into the drawing bowl for a chance to win the drawing.

How to Submit Your Reviews
Use the contact form on my website. You can find that here http://www.wyldeivy.com/help.php?section=contactus&mode=update Be sure you use a valid email address (double check that you have entered it correctly) so if your name is drawn I will be able to contact you. You can enter as many times as you wish. You may also review multiple scents at once (you will still reviews a drawing entry for each and every scent!). You don't need to send an email for each review. Just be sure you let me know which scent you are reviewing.
Please indicate that your a submitting the reviews for the contest entry.

You may not see your review added to the website immediately. This is going to be a side project. Your name will be entered into the drawing as soon as I receive it however, even if it takes me a little while to get your review posted.

You may review all Wylde Ivy scents, products, and even my customer service if you wish!

The first drawing will be in February 2009. Winners will be contacted via email.

Thanks and have fun!
