Ethics in Beauty/Fashion Blogging with Coutorture

fashion pr ethicsGet out your freshly manicured paws and call in on Sunday, August 8 at 6 pm EST as Crosby from PR Couture and Sarah Conley of Coutorture hold a frank, honest and possibly hilarious conversation about all the do’s and don’ts when it comes to working with PR agencies, accepting products, samples, positive/negative reviews etc.

Here are the deets:

Bloggers and PR agencies often struggle with how to best work together and build trust. Crosby will discuss how bloggers can better navigate their interactions with PR companies, including accepting samples, disclosure/transparency, responding to pitches and perceived pressure to give positive reviews. In addition, she will respond to questions from beauty bloggers who call in during the show.

This marks Crosby’s second time as a guest on the program. Her first, a discussion into proper blogger/PR etiquette, was such a resounding success that she was asked back immediately. “Crosby continually demonstrates her commitment and expertise as both liaison and educator for bloggers and PR’s said Julie Fredrickson, founder of Coutorture.com, “We are proud to have her as part of our network and thrilled she has agreed to let us pick her brain again!”

Callers are welcome to join the conversation during the show at calling (347) 996-3983.

The live, Internet-talk radio show will stream from the host page at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/Coutorture/2008/08/10/Beauty-Blogging-Ethics-Dos-Donts. An archive will be available at the same link immediately following the show or listeners can subscribe to the archives via the RSS feed located at the host page.
