Thank you for your interest in Barbara's Beat.
Since April of 2009, Barbara's Beat has been blogging about family issues;
helping moms find deals; find coupons and resources to save money and make life easier; win giveaways; and learn about consumer issues.
We also promote MOMtrepreneurs and DADtrepreneurs.
With three grandkids, a niece and a nephew, we run the gamut from little girl parties, princesses, balls and Barbies; baby items; toddler items; to going four-wheeling, playing sports, and going hunting.
Grandma of three: boy 15, boy 13, girl 6. Aunt of two; a 2-year-old girl and 7-month-old boy.
Married 38 years, wife of a retired First Sgt. in the US Army. We served 4 tours in Germany.
I’m 54 and medically retired in 2004 because of chronic pain, then failed operations. I have more bad days than I do good ones, and Barbara's Beat is the only thing that helps keep my mind active when I can do it.
Reviews/GiveawaysWe offer honest, valuable product reviews and giveaways on Barbara's Beat as a mutual benefit to your company, by bringing attention to your products or services, while providing a service to our readers learning about products as well as winning them.
When we do a review, we use hi-res photos you provide, as well as take our own with the product in use if possible. We also use information about the product that you provide, as well as our own information about the product.
We do provide some links to your media, such as Twitter, Etsy, Pinterest, Instagram, Bloglovin', and Facebook in a review. However, when another product is offered by your company for a giveaway as well, not only do we do a review post, but a Rafflecopter giveaway.
On the Rafflecopter, we select things for the readers to do, like join or follow different media of yours for entries. They also do and follow Barbara's Beat for entries. They may choose which things they wish to do depending on how bad they want to win the item. The more they do, the more chances they have to win.
When the end date arrives, Rafflecopter draws a winner, and we send it to you with the winner's information and you send their prize ASAP.
We must advise you we do all of our posts no-follow. That is to keep Google happy with us and with you. If this is something that doesn't make you happy, then I'm sorry, but we will not change our policy for any reason.
At this time, we always use Rafflecopter.
We always use pics - yours and ours.
We always link the products to the sponsor’s site.
We always send a link to the sponsor when we post the review/giveaway.
We always use all the sponsor’s media – Twitter, YouTube, Etsy, Pinterest, etc.
We always have our posts – all posts - sent out two ways - by RSS and email subscribers.
We always have our posts automatically sent to Twitter and FB.
We also post the giveaway links on our Pinterest boards such as Giveaways Galore.
We always try to post the links on our sponsor’s FB page.

We’ve updated our Pages Terms in order to make it easier for businesses of all sizes to create and administer promotions on Facebook. Here’s what Page administrators need to know:
We’ve removed the requirement that promotions on Facebook only be administered through apps
Now, promotions may be administered on Page Timelines and in apps on Facebook. For example, businesses can now:
- Collect entries by having users post on the Page or comment/like a Page post
- Collect entries by having users message the Page
- Utilize likes as a voting mechanism
As before, however, businesses cannot administer promotions on personal Timelines.
Accurate tagging is required in promotions
In order to maintain the accuracy of Page content, our Pages Terms now prohibit Pages from tagging or encouraging people to tag themselves in content that they are not actually depicted in. So, for instance:
- It’s OK to ask people to submit names of a new product in exchange for a chance to win a prize
- It’s not OK to ask people tag themselves in pictures of a new product in exchange for a chance to win a prize
We hope these updates will enable more businesses to use Facebook to launch their promotions. For more information regarding the changes to our promotions policies, check out our downloadable Promotion Guidelines, which include FAQs and best practices for running promotions through Facebook. --
