We see a LOT of sponsored and promotional posts across Social Media…the use of #ad #sp #sponsored is pretty subjective and can be used pretty much however the Influencer chooses. The issue here….is transparency…when you build up a readership or following, those individuals trust you. They trust your choices. Your partnerships….
So what responsibility does a blogger have to their readers? How far can a blogger ‘push it’ with regards to paid for partnerships. Everybody wants/needs to make a living right? So how can a readership control what a blogger does/doesn’t do?
We are fascinated by this entire debate, by the responsibility, the weight and the opportunities that bloggers face on the journey to build a profitable blogger business.
We want to know what you think about this part of the industry, and what we can do to control it.
