Stealthy Mama Shopper is on the Loose!

Since I am no longer in retail and only in sales, I have been trying to think of a unique take on blog reviews.  I have always felt that most of the blogging moms were just saying they loved everything.  It didn’t seem like they really talked about the products…or were not very honest…or they just love everything!  I have also seen the other side of it.  Where you get a million e-mails asking for free products and telling you how they are going to help you.  I was able to get some traffic from the ones I did.  I didn’t really get much out of them though.  I am happy to say that one of those blogs was just starting and is alive and well today.  I still visit her blog when I can!

I knew I wanted to buy the products I was going to review for the most part.  I don’t like to ask for hand outs, I love to give them though!  Most likely another good reason for me to get out of retail.  You don’t make any money if you give everything away.  Plus, I really want to highlight WAHMs as well as other products made in the USA.  I don’t mind getting free items every now and then though.

The one thing we never get to hear about is customer service.  And customer service can really make or break a business.  I like to think that I had great customer service and hope my customers thought and still think the same way.  If I go around and ask a business for free products I can’t talk about their customer service on a realistic level.  I will get special treatment.  They know what I am going to be doing.  So they will roll out the red carpet for me.  If I go and buy the product, I am just like another customer.  I will be able to say what contact was like and not feel obligated to sugar coat everything.

I talked it over with a few friends and came up with the name Stealthy Mama Shopper.  I really hope that you all will enjoy my unique take on reviews.  I will try to bring you all prizes and discounts when possible.  Times are tough though.  And I am not the type of person to pressure others to give away items.  Now if JuJuBe wants to give me and a reader a free bag, that is one prize and review I would beg for!  I have been drooling over their Pretty Tweet print.  But that is another story.

So please follow along with me!  Make suggestions as to what to buy and where to buy it from.  I will let you know where I am at in the process at the top of this blog.
