Advertisement Policy

Zona Shoppers’ promotion policy, also known as “marketing,” “social management,” or “brand awareness,” is not intended to be a legal representation of any company. For all-inclusive marketing on your membership, you should seek guidance and legal representation for your company. Based on that guidance, you should develop the concept for your promotion. Once you have the image or vision, please send it to Zona Shoppers to start your brand awareness.  

Our policy is based on providing a service you have chosen voluntarily to present your products to potential clients. Therefore, our promotion does not guarantee the rapid growth of your brand or income.

The promotion you want must follow the rules, regulations, and guidelines of the FTC and CARU.

Zona Shoppers is always in the best disposition to help small businesses to excel. First, however, the company must seek all possible information on the rules that apply to it. 

Zona Shoppers reserves the right to change this information or part without prior notice. 

The vendor points out no responsibility for the reception of their campaign on the customers. Neither will file for a legal dispute or remuneration. The job of Zona Shoppers is to place marketing or promotion on social media accordingly to the selected membership and the illustration (image) or video you supplied. 

Zona Shoppers does take responsibility for the outcome the image or video you provided can have over your brand. For better results of brand awareness, please read this guide. Remember, this is only a guide, not a piece of legal advice. You should always consult with your legal team before sending any image.

 How does Zona Shoppers Marketing work?

The Process for Collaborative and Affiliates Campaigns:

    • As soon as your store is ready to start selling, you will send an image that best represents your brand. 
    • The image cannot be more than 1MB.
    • Your image will be placed into carousel-style marketing, along with other brands. You don’t need to place your brand’s name on the image. 
    • We want a coherent image across the marketing, so we will do our best not to place your photo with similar products, but we don’t guarantee it will not happen.  
    • We will try to complement your image with other products that make your ad pop. If we cannot find the right combination of products, then your products will have other products in between (different) to avoid confusion. For example, the first image is about dresses; the second image is about sunglasses; the third image is about accessories, and so on. Please visit Four to Social to see the portfolio.   
    • Please be aware your campaign will run for 30 days within the geographic area best for your store. 
    • We may suggest the best areas, but it is better to stay close to your geographic location. This will help you increase sales. For example, US vendors should boost sales in the states; the Caribbean should market within the Caribbean, etc. We can do precise marketing if you are a micro-business.  
    • Please follow the instruction Four To Social will send to your email for your independent marketing. You can use the same images if you like; we have no problem. 
    • Each membership has several marketing campaigns included. We also offer a different number of marketing to improve your chances of succeeding (even though we do not guarantee an increase in sales) at an economical price; check here.

If you wish us to help you with your image, store video, or another type of promotion, you can communicate with us, and we are more than glad to set a price.  

We will work hard so your brand receives constant viewing, but it is up to you to send the images for the promotion.

We also request that the client continues promoting their products on their part. This increases the chances of brand awareness.  

Collaborative Marketing

Collaborative Marketing is the process in which multiple brands advertise together without competing against each other. For example, at Zona Shoppers, we collaborate with Four to to promote various brands within one campaign so the vendor can receive brand awareness promotion at a meager price.  

You can request more independent promotions, but each extra independent promotion may have a high price.

How does it Work?
    • By purchasing one of Zona Shoppers Memberships, you consent to place your image/s with other brand’s images in collaborative marketing in either reel, carousel, or any different technique that best promotes all the brands.
    • You will not find Zona Shoppers responsible if your sales do not increase after a section of marketing. We do our best to raise your brand awareness, but there is no guarantee that our brand awareness guarantee increases sales; thus, you will bring no legal action against Zona Shoppers under such circumstances.
    • You consent Zona Shoppers to place all brand names or logos on the same side, with the same size font, font style, and best marketing messaging on each photo brand. If there is a possibility to promote your brand using a specific font or message, we will try our best, but it depends on time and space constriction.   
    • You consent to Zona Shoppers to adjunct your brand image within a marketing collaboration, either affiliates, social promoters, or multiple platforms most appropriate for your products. Further, you consent to avoid reviewing Collaborative Marketing Campaigns if there is a lack of time.
    • You agree that when in a request for approval, you are given one (1) opportunity to make changes to the campaign (this is a message or photo).
    • You also consent to Zona Shoppers to present your campaign in platforms best aligned with your target audience. If you disagree with the offer presented, we will accept suggestions up to one time. If you are still not satisfied, then our collaborator Four to Social, will not conduct your marketing.

If you are unsatisfied with Collaborative Marketing, you will renounce the marketing, losing one or all of your advertisements within your membership. We will notify you of your decision and try to make you reconsider the options.   

You agree that Zona Shoppers will not guarantee a request for approval for collaborative campaigns. No legal disputes will be brought against Zona Shoppers for lack of consent or request for authorization for any marketing. You agree that you provide the image to be used in the marketing, and as such, you relinquish your rights over such an image.  

Zona Shoppers reserves the right to make changes to this policy. Therefore, you must check our policies periodically to verify any changes. We may inform you about the changes through a dashboard or email.
