Of course she had to choose the worst contrast colours for this OTT declaration that she is linking an affiliate link for an item she bought with her OWN money! Why not go all the way and tell us that it's money earned from previous devious posts and undeclared ADs?!
She is such a sore (sour ;-)) loser :lol:.

I wonder how these girls will spin their usual “this month’s favourites” when it’s becoming more and more clear to their followers that they are basically just walking coat hangers for the brands they claim to love :D.

Still needs to state AD. Weither she's paid before or after the affiliate link is irrelevant!

So does she mean she’s had no previous relationship with Mango? Or ASOS??

Damn that’s a LOT of filler in that face!
So what happens to all these filler filled weirdos if they stop? All of a sudden noses go back to bumps, jaw lines disappear, age 10 years all of a sudden when the wrinkles appear and so on. Not to mention their poor livers processing the crap

Which is weird, because she also hates every part of her body and life: her boobs, her nose, her skin, her natural tan, her hair, her accent, her background, her real heritage, her husband ( ;-) ) etc. and she desperately wants to look and be a totally different person.

Look at how she’s admiring her own reflection. She’s thoroughly delighted with herself and probs still revelling at her own ‘humour’ as she feels she made a ‘hilarious quip’ about her driveway and everybody laughed.. In her world. She totally thinks she’s invincible & can beat the system with both her high end style and witty repartee. She is utterly gross.

I haven’t watched Lidl in a long time (I still read here occasionally ) but when I saw the changes I had to check out her IG because I knew she would throw a hissy fit. AND WOW I WAS RIGHT! She is seriously a GRADE A CUNTBAG. I’ve attached screen shots of the snarky comment she made on her IG before she ends up deleting it and the thread since people called her out. Seriously Lydia, take the sand out of your vagina and quit fucking bitching. EVERY JOB/BUSINESS HAS RULES. I’m convinced this is why she couldn’t make it in the REAL WORLD and got into blogging.

I guess Ali wasn't allowed to put out his Tree house vlog before Lidl's, so instead he's done a shopping haul. B.O.R.I.N.G!

Near the beginning he shows some products he's received. He says "you may have seen some of this on my channel before", meaning he has a relationship with the brand.
No mention of these items in the description, no #AD or #Gifted displayed.

He recorded this before the new ASA rules came into effect (because Ken is sanding the doors in the background) but he's put it out when the new rules are in force, so should have updated his vlog.
REPORT. REPORT. REPORT. REPORT. [emoji87]

I bet the candle on the table is #Gifted too.


RE: The clothes.
OMG. They just don't suit him. He's trying to change his style to match country life but he just looks like a plonker.

The long coat looks like an oversized dressing gown on him and the scarf just makes him look even more gay.

Wow Lyd is so bitter right now! If she doesn't have anything to hide why so annoyed.

I am glad this is happening because with the way she is handling this situation and how rude she is being yo her followers she is letting her true colours come out.

I bet a lot of people will stop following her as she cannot take any feedback that does not involve people kissing her no existent butt.

Maybe if she was a bit nicer she wouldn’t need to worry about her career being at stake. Be nice, polite and transparent and people will still support your work. Carry on the way you are and you’ll lose all your audience. What a cow she is.

"The lady doth protest too much"

The more she complains about it, the more guilty she looks.

All the people abiding by the new ASA rules are just getting on with it.

Lyds on the other hand is so worried because it's going to expose her for the liar she is.

Her followers think she's paid for everything. They went out and bought the same items with their own money and now they're going to find out she actually got it all for free.

If I were them, I'd feel stupid and angry for being so gullible and naive.

For some on the other hand, won't even realise they've been misled and will continue to lick her arse. [emoji207][emoji207][emoji207]

If only they read GG. They might have their eyes opened.
People think that we are jealous of her and are haters.

I don't know about the rest of you but I'm not jealous of Lidl. I'm not a hater or bullying. I just can't stand to see her getting all this shit for free, lying about it AND getting away with it!

Things are about to change my friends. Finally. [emoji846]

Just scrolled through the comments under her latest ig post...so many dumb people, oh my...”Lydia is a public figure but it’s her business where she gets the items from” or “TV people also wear clothes but do not have to disclose”. Seriously, is that an (ignorant) face of a new consumer? Influenzas do not post your regular candid photos of their lives, they do not share the moments, they are not your regular girls next door. They use these public SM accounts (and yes, they have private, real ones as well) to SELL. All their posts/videos/stories are preplanned, strategically developed, staged, photographed and photoshopped professionally with a sole purpose to SELL. They will not raise their finger to simply share a moment of pure joy, or a funny moment they’ve witnessed accidentally on a street. EVERY SINGLE PICTURE/STORY/VIDEO is a PRODUCT for sale. It’s not their life you follow, it’s their business you buy from. If tomorrow all the brands will stop working with them, they will all close down their public accounts as they are not interested in sharing their life with thousands of strangers for free.

Just had a peek at Ali's video. My understanding is that if you use affiliate links then it is advertising and AD needs to be put at the beginning. So he has broken the rules and it seems that In The Frow has also failed to put AD as she also has said her items were gifted/loaned which means she is also advertising for a brand. They really do think that people are stupid and that they will get away with it. I think there will be plenty of people reporting these influencers now.

I just watched the documentary on Netflix about the Fyre Festival, and how it was made to look more than it was by the Influencers that were offered exclusive accommodation in return for sharing about the festival with their followers, with the sole intention of selling tickets for the event. It stated during the documentary that changes had to be made about declarations by Influencers on Social Media.

Also some time ago, there was a questionnaire on the CSA website and I answered the questions about social media marketing. I am guessing some of the responses they got to that questionnaire were used to inform these latests changes.

She did give full discloser in her latest YT vlog, but not without a lot of moaning and bitching on IG though :D.

A few pages back you’ll find a screen shot of a rather long passive agressive post of hers.

Maybe she hasn't got a sponsorship with Fortnum & Mason but she's definitely angling for one the way she keeps showing that bloody hamper in every photo.

She just wants all the free gifts from them..... ImageImageImage

How bizarre is that all the people agreeing with Lidl afe influenzas as well.

They kept saying that being on youtube and Ig is a job, so what's wrong with having some rules in place.

If they are so unhappy about it they can quit and try to get a job in the real world where you are only able to secure one if you have skills and by skills I don't mean taking pictures and begging for free stuff.

just out of curiosity - if you do not see the word ad, what is the process for reporting these people? Is there an email?

Why Victoria is commenting on lidl post when everyone knows they hate each other?

This is to show that Vic will kiss anyone's ass to secure her Loreal contract.

I can tell that if this "influenza" fever end it a lot of these girls will end up working as sale assistant at Zara or Topshop. As most of them don't have any skills to get a proper job.

There are only a few that has a career or have a degree outside yt or blogging.

Lydia vlogging herself filling jars for her pantry is not the dumbest move - people are losing their minds over Marie Kondo's show on Netflix and organizing everything as a result. I'm sure Lydia will get decent views on the video if she has titled or tagged it correctly. But isn't she supposed to be a fashion and beauty blogger? Or is her YT channel now a companion for her IG home account? She needs to figure that out quickly because she built her current audience for one subject and now she's giving them another. I'm actually a little surprised she hasn't lost more subscribers as a result - this has been going on for a year now!

I will say that I think the new disclosure guidelines go too far but only because this is currently the only form of media having to deal with such strict regulations. If one form of media has to disclose this rigorously, they should all have to do it otherwise I begin to wonder who the ASA is working for. Every magazine editorial is created with behind the scenes deals with brands - so if a brand buys X amount in advertising, they are promised to be featured in an editorial. Why isn't that declared as an ad? Will the social media channels for these publications have to abide by these new rules when they feature parts of these editorials? Shouldn't magazine beauty editors have to disclose if they were sent on a press trip for the launch of a product they feature? I have never ever seen that kind of thing mentioned in any magazine I read regularly. Every single movie and tv show features product placement deals, which are only revealed in the end credits with a "thanks" or "promotional consideration by" - which is exactly the language that influencers are now being told they can't use. Plus not many people read all of the end credits so that should be changed too. Will tv and movie producers have to change how they label these things? It's dumb. So much around us is an ad, it doesn't help anyone to only label some of it and not all of it. Still, I'm sitting here racking my brain trying to remember things Lydia has recently said she picked up or acquired because it's going to be hella awkward when she now tries to slyly label it as gifted or sponsored when it wasn't previously disclosed.

They earn so much money but all they seem to eat is pasta, salmon that she cooks on thermomix with hummus and food their parents cook for them.

We would think that someone who wants to brag about a Aston Martin would eat good food but not the case.

The only place I can find is on

https://www.asa.org.uk/make-a-complaint.html

In the drop down menu, it doesn't have an option specifically for a Youtube video or Instagram/Instagram story so I would select "Online: Within a company's own or other type of website"

It is best to take screenshots.
Definitely get a screenshot of the description details below the video or photo.


I think it's daft that so many have covered this story telling us about the new guidelines yet they don't tell us (as a consumer) how to report these Social Media Influencers nor provide a link. [emoji35]


If anyone knows of a better link, please post it. Thank you. [emoji120][emoji106]ImageImageImageImage

I have just been catching up on here with regards to Lydiot's meltdown over the new ASA guidelines. We are going to be so much busier now guys as we will all have a lot of reporting to do. Surely her beige boring thing is already in breach of the new guidelines as she clearly has had previous dealings with Asos, and omitted (lied) to say so.

I would imagine that there will not be one post now that Lydia can truly say is not an AD, as everything in her kitchen, office etc. etc. has been gifted at some stage. As for Emma Hill, OMG even her hair cuts are free, jeez, did these people pay for anything. What's betting half of Emma's kitchen was gifted as well.

Let the reporting begin.

I am off to watch her latest vlog as I am in need of a good laugh.

I don't know why they don't try one of those healthy eating places that deliver all your food straight to your door.
I know she can't cook but it comes with a step by step guide of how to throw it all in a pan, surely even she can do that!?

Just scrolled through the comments under her latest ig post...so many dumb people, oh my...”Lydia is a public figure but it’s her business where she gets the items from” or “TV people also wear clothes but do not have to disclose”. Seriously, is that an (ignorant) face of a new consumer? Influenzas do not post your regular candid photos of their lives, they do not share the moments, they are not your regular girls next door. They use these public SM accounts (and yes, they have private, real ones as well) to SELL. All their posts/videos/stories are preplanned, strategically developed, staged, photographed and photoshopped professionally with a sole purpose to SELL. They will not raise their finger to simply share a moment of pure joy, or a funny moment they’ve witnessed accidentally on a street. EVERY SINGLE PICTURE/STORY/VIDEO is a PRODUCT for sale. It’s not their life you follow, it’s their business you buy from. If tomorrow all the brands will stop working with them, they will all close down their public accounts as they are not interested in sharing their life with thousands of strangers for free.

That's exactly how I see it. People need to be aware that EVERYTHING those "influencers" post is basically an ad. In my opinion, even if they are not working with a brand, it is still some kind of ad when they recommend (-> advertise) products. Most of the time they will put affiliate links to everything anyway, and earn money from them. It's their job. They make their lifelihood from selling things to people. Nothing wrong with that, everybody has to live, however they should be honest about it.
Also, I think it's ironic that those strict new rules probably would not have been necessary if all the influencers and the brands they were advertising had been honest about their relationship from the beginning. - And Lydia - among others - has often been so dishonest about gifts, vouchers and her relationship with brands. I wish those rules had already existed in 2017, so she would have had to put #gifted and #ad all over her wedding pictures.

Wow. Just rechecked some more comments on her last insta post. The comments calling her out are still rolling in. Even her subs are tired of her whinging and like someone else said it is only other blogger leaches that are agreeing with her. She will not be able to post anything from her past that she lied about saying it was not sponsored which is everything. I have to laugh when she also has to say she used a voucher but used X amount of her own money. She thinks in her own head that if she adds that then it softens the blow and somehow hides the fact that she has a sponsored life. What a moron!

She bought/leased "her" (OUR!) Mercedes and kept tagging MercedesAMG on twitter and/or instagram. Her car isn't even an AMG - it's a "normal" Mercedes with the AMG-exterieur line, so the car looks like an AMG but actually the engine is a normal Mercedes engine.

Just thought I share that detail with you all because somehow it really bugged me (as does everythign else she does).
Now going back to lurking :)
I feel your pain. It annoys me when people stick M badges on normal BMWs too [emoji85]

I work at BMW and although there are definitely some idiots out there who just stick an M badge on an old pre-owned BMW to make it look more expensive, BMW as well as Mercedes actually offer M or AMG packages when you have your new car configured, i.e. extra equipment packages with all the extras in M or AMG cars, like interior elements, sport suspension, or exterior elements. They just don't have the engine power (although you can go with a pretty high-powered engine as well).
So when I choose my company cars, I often go for the M package, because I like the extra luxury of the sporty elements, but I don't need the engine.

Anyway, I'm sure she doesn't know the difference and just wanted to show off.
yeah, that's what I meant, you just put it better than I did. She may have added the amg package for looks, but the engine is just a "normal" one. She kept tagging @MercedesAMG which is another company under the umbrella of Daimler. You explained it way better than I did though :)

Product placement in the movies and such does not come with a dishonest review (oh I love it! It’s my absolute fa-vou-ri-te!), and does not contain any affiliate links to allow movie producer make money off the viewers. Same with magazines. They feature to let you know what’s new, but their reviews are neutral in nature, and they do not get money when you go and buy it.
From the marketing standpoint the purpose of Product placement is to raise Brand awareness and Brand recognition. So, that next time you shop in this category you will recognise the brand and pick their product and not someone else’s. Which means that technically other media do not directly sell anything to their viewers/readers, and do not profit from them.

Totally agree.

When you go to buy a car, you know the sales person is there to sell you it. The same as if you go to any shop, you know they are there to help (i.e. sell) you something. Adverts in magazines or on TV are paid for by the company and then they make no further money from the actual advert. These influencers used to tell us about products they had found on their own and enjoyed. Now they are sent items and are incentivised to show them. Thats a massive difference. We need to know that they might not be being genuine. An advert in a magazine isn't telling me its amazing and their new fave product. Adverts also have to follow guidelines and can't make claims that aren't true or knock competition etc Its about time that this industry became more regulated.

I do not understand why lidl is so angry about it. She is one of the people that has always shouted the loudest about how compliant she is, so this should really be no problem for her.

Some great points made above, fair play ladies. This really is a forum with great content & intelligence (also lashings of devilish wit). This whole episode has been born from a previously unmonitored industry that’s blown up to epic proportions and the panic from certain ‘creators’ - that makes me cringe btw - is purely down to panic, as their ‘champagne taste, cider pockets’ lifestyle risks being exposed. About bloody time!

I just understood what "affiliate link" means. I didn't know until she said she bought with her own money and no vouchers.

So she buys say 5 things for £300 on ASOS. Makes the video and add the affiliate links. Then returns 3 or 4 of the most expensive pieces. And get £200 back. With the affliliate links she gets all the money from people who click and buy there. Is that how it works?

She is one of those people that will speak to you, be friends with you, suck up to you, grovel, plead, beg even if there is money for her involved. If you are of no use to her, she's not interested and you don't even register on her radar. You're either giving her something, she's paying you to do something (employees/slaves/house elves, or you might be of use to her a bit further down the line, not too far mind! Otherwise, who are you even, why are you breathing my #gifted oxygen!?

Thats how it works. Often they don't keep what's in these hauls, its just for the video and they send it back. They can affiliate link to anything they want. Doesn't mean they are keeping it. I quite often see girls putting items on their IG stories that they just 'love' or 'are adding to their basket', all with swipe up affiliate links, no proof they are actually buying it. I started watching Pipsy-pie after she was mentioned here, i like her lifestyle and style so i keep watching but every day she has affiliate links to items she has just seen online. She's not buying them for herself. I think that's quite common, I've seen others do it but she is first that comes to mind.

An affiliate link works like this. She gets gifted items, or maybe orders items from say Asos. (Instead of being gifted, sent stuff directly, she might have been told she has a voucher to the value of, which she can choose her own items from, so this is where she uses the term "picked out".) She may show all those items, keep only one, send the rest back if you ordered over the voucher value. If she's sent it, doesn't like it, it gets gifted to friends, sold on Depop (possibly under a second name, or Carrie's), or if that fails to get rid of the item she might send it to the charity shop.

Under her video, she will tag every damned thing she shows in her video. So the chair she's sat on, if she can get a kickback from that, the mug she drinks her tea out of, the clothes and makeup she is wearing, etc etc. Where the affiliate links kick in, is those links under the video, on her website, or the swipe up on Instagram. If you click the link and it takes you straight to the website of the company selling the product, if you look up the top in your search bar, there might be her name, or an affiliate number. The company website you then land on places cookies on the device you are using to access the website and those cookies can stay on your device for 30 days. So if you say look at the dress she is flogging, think no that's not for me, but I like this other thing I've just seen on the website and you order it. The website link you initially clicked, tracks that sale back to Lydia and she gets a percentage of the sale. If you go away, come back to the website a week later and order something else, she still gets a kickback from that sale, as she introduced you to the website, so therefore is "entitled" to a kickback. In theory this doesn't cost you extra, ie they don't add her commission on after you've clicked add to basket. That fee was worked out well ahead of the item being priced and added to the website, if the company doesn't have to pay affiliate fees and you arrived at their website organically (ie, found your own way there), then that is more profit for the company selling.

Think of it like this. You want to buy a used car, you go to the car showroom, the strange guy there in the rather shiny silver grey suit and brown shoes shows you around the cars, talks about how good they are, even if they are rubbish, that they are fuel efficient, even if they have the fuel economy of a Sherman Tank, and they convince you to buy a car. You know when you pay the price for the car, that a portion of that money will be going straight to the used car salesman as commission. That's what affiliate links are, only difference is if you went back to the used car place and bought a second car, you might deal with someone else, and they'd get the commission. Lydia's bread is buttered on both sides, she gets the first commission, the second and maybe even the third, all from adding that restyleme link, or which other one she chooses to use.

Lydia is the used car salesman in the shiny silver grey suit, with the brown shoes, basically their jobs are the same, flog you stuff, earn commission.

I just understood what "affiliate link" means. I didn't know until she said she bought with her own money and no vouchers.

So she buys say 5 things for £300 on ASOS. Makes the video and add the affiliate links. Then returns 3 or 4 of the most expensive pieces. And get £200 back. With the affliliate links she gets all the money from people who click and buy there. Is that how it works?
An affiliate link works like this. She gets gifted items, or maybe orders items from say Asos. (Instead of being gifted, sent stuff directly, she might have been told she has a voucher to the value of, which she can choose her own items from, so this is where she uses the term "picked out".) She may show all those items, keep only one, send the rest back if you ordered over the voucher value. If she's sent it, doesn't like it, it gets gifted to friends, sold on Depop (possibly under a second name, or Carrie's), or if that fails to get rid of the item she might send it to the charity shop.

You have to be pre-approved to reward style don't you? And do you have to be approved on IG to do swipe ups?? They should allow everyone and anyone to do it. Dont see why only people with large following should get a kickback lol!!

Thanks!. The only difference is that if Im going to get a car, is because I have decided to get a car, I go to the place I choose and leave with a thing I meant to buy.

What bothers me of those "Hauls" videos is that they are like those late night tv sells advertisements where they sell crap to adicted to shop people. I hate to start to like someone on YouTube because the content is good, recommendations are good, and suddenly they are convincing you to buy things you don't need just cause they want your money.

Im glad I don't buy anything Lydia recommends cause she makes very obvious she doesnt "love" good things. She just "love" the things that brings her money back.

It looks as if you could do that Eggy

The ASOS Affiliate Program Offers
5% commission on every sale
30 day cookie period
Updated creative in industry standard sizes

I got that information from here, she talks about how to monetise your blog or online presence. https://herpaperroute.com/asos-affiliat ... m-details/

I think the reason that some of these "up and coming" influencers are worried about this is because they feel they are on a trajectory to wealth, they want to be the Lydia of tomorrow, and if the rug is being pulled out from under their feet, then they can see their future "careers" going down the toilet!

She's gone mad now literally, walking through her house videoing everything saying how it was paid for, gifts, vouchers etc etc. Hmm, paranoia or guilt or what? Not seen anyone else do that, very weird behaviour. Doubt she will do that with the cars because there's no way she wants people to know what the story is with them!

So the majority of 'influencers' are going to be shown up now with these new rules, because it's not just agencies such as Gleam working for them and dealing with clients and putting deals together, don't be under any illusion that they are contacting companies influencers want to work with or get stuff from, or the likes of Lydia are doing it themselves, hence those tweets about 'i'm interested in a new car Mercedes/BMW etc etc'.

I am convinced that they are approaching brands and companies and literally begging for stuff all the time, which is so wrong and vile and completely makes a mockery of the 'influencer' world. Even someone like Victoria, who covers it up very well is no doubt doing it.

Lydia approaches say 'Farrow and Ball', we want to decorate our house, we both are influencers with a combined audience of nearly a million followers on you tube. We will feature our home in between one and two videos a week, and we will also put up instagram images and blog posts, we will credit you on every photo and video etc etc'

So that company would think ok fair enough then for the cost of the paint to them - maybe £1000 tops it is worth it, and so it goes on, the begging continues, food, drink, hair cuts, clothes, furniture, accessories, there is nothing they have to pay for.

How much better off would you be if the only things you had to pay for were your mortgage/rent and your utility bills and possibly food bills.

Trips, gym memberships, hair cuts, even meals out probably could be got for free.

All the extras you can literally beg from companies for a mention or two. Brilliant, no wonder there are hundreds of new bloggers emerging each week.

PR companies and marketing companies have always given away products etc in return for promotion but this is a new level and its made people so so greedy and promoting a false lifestyle which kids are wanting to achieve, no doubt shop lifting has increased as well!

I see she's trying to use any word she can other than GIFTED.

"Farrow & Ball helped us paint the kitchen cabinets"

I think Asda should change the law and make mandatory to affiliate links display a popup "Warning - We have placed a cookie on your computer and for 30 days this person will get X commision on anything you buy from this website. Continue | Cancel" :tu:

Something like this will make me think twice if the "Influencer" that receives my commision has been actually helpful to me and Im fine to "tip" her for any purchase I make during that 30 days period.

Sometimes I click on one of those "afiliate links" to see how much a product cost. Or see any aditional information.

I won't click on any of a YouTubber link from now on :-x I don't remember when was the last time a YouTubber was helpful to me.
