Top Questions Asked By Listeners
There have been a lot of questions over the several years I’ve been hosting this podcast. I figured now would be a good time to answer the most popular:
- I am having a problem with a vendor. Can you help me?
Believe it or not this is the most popular question I’ve been asked. Unfortunately there isn’t anything I can do in that particular situation. I am a consumer just like you. My advice is always to go directly to the vendor and give them a chance to make it right. Most of the time they do.
- I love/hate a particular product. Can you please mention it on the cast?
This is another gray area. In a world where YMMV (your mileage may vary) with certain products, it’s difficult for me to endorse or not endorse products based on opinion. Even when I review my own purchases, I always make a point of saying the review is solely based on opinion.
I can however mention that a listener (anonymously if desired) contacted me with their thoughts
- I am a vendor/artisan and would love you to try my product. Can I send you some?
This is the second most asked question I get. Many vendors offer and in the past I have gave out my address and information for samples ect. Unfortunately about 80% of the time these vendors do not follow through so I am currently not accepting samples (hence why there haven’t been any give-a-ways). In the past what I received I’ve given away and it worked out great.
If you are a vendor you may contact me regarding your products, but will have to go through a series of questions and a wait period. All inquiries are subject to approval by yours truly.
In addition I do not endorse products without using them. If you are a new vendor I will be more than happy to mention your company.
- I would like to advertise, or be featured on Sharpologist. Can you help me?
While I have an excellent relationship with Mark, the podcast and Sharpologist are two separate entities that fill a need for each other.
If you’re interested in working with Sharpologist, I will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
