The decision to provide a product with coverage from either of the sections 1-4 and the amount of coverage is based on the quality of the product, the price of the product and whether we were provided with a loan sample or non returnable sample. For clarity, type of online coverage is firstly based on quality independent of price, however the value of non-returnable samples will be taken into consideration to give what we consider fair online coverage for non-returnable samples sent in of different values. We have categorised the system from category A-C. You can see our sample policy here. All loan samples sent in will be categorised as a Category A product independent of price and likely to incur a sponsored content fee for anything more than social media. If a single product is of low value but sent as part of a pack, the pack price will be taken into consideration.
Inclusion in SLOAN! is based on quality and suitability for planned features. We offer at least one or a combination of the above types of coverage listed 1-5 for items we have called in but not for unsolicited products. Please make sure you contact us before sending items and have a request via e-mail for your product with the delivery address. We do not call in samples over the phone.
It is our aim to put any online coverage up within 4 weeks of confirmation of receipt with a view to the best fitting products being included in a future edition of SLOAN! if applicable.
With respect to competition prizes, there is a placement fee but this is waived at editor’s discretion or if the prize value exceeds our suggested MPV.
If you wish to receive more coverage for your product than we have allotted, we do accept requests for sponsored posts. We regret we cannot accept all requests. Please feel free to apply for a bespoke quote via our Sponsored Content Enquiry Form.
