Companies and brands that think they own your posts just because they offered you PR

Have you ever been in a situation where the company (never happened with a brand itself directly) was too agressive asking to post a few posts, stories, and good reviews and If you don’t they get very rude. That’s why I decided not to accept pr lately unless they are very open and self critical. How do you react in these situations especially if they name you publicly?

I mean, we don't live in a world full of rainbows and unicorns, right? Most companies do not send PR products for charity. If they send you PR, of course they are expecting that you talk about their products on your socials. Why else would they? That's what marketing is about. Most influencers will post about PR products even if the brand does not instruct them too, but that's what they will expect anyways. At the end of the day, companies want to make profits, and that's all there is to it.

yes but I do not asked them to send anything neither they wanted some special tretmant before. I wouldn’t lie for a product someone saves money to buy it and trust me, so I would rather buy it and say my real experience (and the good thing about skincare is that the same product is great for someone else) or i might not post anything especially if I am a customer as well and bought and reviewed tons of other od their products so, like I said thanks I don’t want pr if they think it’s charity, it is actually advertisment that cost them almost nothing compared to a sponsored post

I'm currently talking with one company from Taiwan but they wrote in the beginning that they want to use post and photos I create for them but they can only go for barter, normally I wouldn't agree, but I have to admit the product they offer and the aesthetic of the brand made me agree, but if the company didn't say at first they want to use your photos then I would write a message to them and report them to Instagram.

seems like a fair thing in your case, in mine they said they will send me products with no obligation to post or review but here we go 😢
